Kusal ton sets up consolation SL victory

WT24 Desk

Kusal Perera sent Pakistan on the run with his most substantial innings to date, then Sri Lanka’s middle order ran the opposition down and mauled them in a frenzied finish, to found a 165-run victory in the final ODI. Sri Lanka plundered 368 for 4, but even on a placid Hambantota deck, the chase was too steep for Pakistan’s in-form top order. They slipped to 140 for 5 before the halfway stage of the innings, and were all out for 203, ESPNCricinfo reports.
