Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 68 runs in the second and final Test at Abu Dhabi a short while ago.

Chasing 317 to win, the Pakistanis were bowled out for 248 in the first session of the final day.

This is Sri Lanka's first ever day-night Test.

Asad Shafiq was the ninth man to out for 112.

The Pakistanis resumed the final day's play with 198 for 8.

However, Dilruwan Perera removed Sarfraz Ahmed for 68 and Mohammad Amir for 4 to ensure Sri Lanka takes an early advantage.

Dilruwan bagged 5 for 98. Sri Lanka also won the 2-match series 2 nil.

This is Pakistan's first series defeat in UAE since it became their designated home in Tests.

With this lost, Pakistan has fallen to No. 7 in the ICC Test ranking.

Dimuth Karunaratne was named as the Man of the Match and Man of the Series.
