Newcomer Bhanuka Rajapaksa hit a whirlwind half-century while Nuwan Pradeep and Wanindu Hasaranga recorded career-best bowling figures as Sri Lanka beat Pakistan by 35 runs in the second Twenty20 international in Lahore.

Rajapaksa's 77 off 48 balls lifted Sri Lanka to a challenging total of 182  for 6 -- the left-hander blasting six sixes and four fours in a maiden fifty that came in only his second T20 international.

Pradeep finished with 4 for 25 while leg-spinner Hasaranga took 3 for 38 -- collecting his wickets in the space of just four balls -- as Pakistan were bowled out for 147 in 19 overs.

Victory gave Sri Lanka their first T20 series win over Pakistan in seven attempts as they clinched an unassailable 2- nil lead in the three-match series.
