One-drop batsman Babar knocked a fighting 133-ball 103 while Shadab scored a career-best 52 not out to lift Pakistan from a struggling 101 for 6 before Shadab the bowler returned with his best figures of 3 for 47 to dismiss Sri Lanka for 187 all out in 48 overs.

It was Azam's second consecutive 100 in the series and the 5th consecutive ODI century at the UAE.
The victory gives Pakistan a 2 nil lead in the five-match series.
