Sri Lanka ripped through Pakistan‘s batting line-up and emerged victorious by 35 runs in 2nd T20I at historic Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

Bhanuka Rajapaksa struck an aggressive maiden international half-century as Sri Lanka made 182-6 before spinner Wanindu Hasaranga took 3-38 to help bowl Pakistan out for 147 in 19 overs.

Rajapaksa blasted 77 off 48 balls in an innings featuring six sixes and four fours after Sri Lanka won the toss and batted first.

Sri Lanka, who won the first match by 67 runs on Saturday, also in Lahore, have won a T20 series against Pakistan for the first time in seven attempts.

The final match takes place at the same venue on Wednesday.

Earlier, Pakistan beat Sri-Lanka by five wickets in the third One Day International at Karachi.

Batting first, Sri Lanka set a victory target of 298 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in allotted fifty over.

In reply, Pakistan achieved the target in 48.2 overs for the loss of five wickets.

Fakhar Zaman and Abid Ali have added up a huge 123-runs for the opening stand after Sri Lanka, boosted by a career best 133 by opener Danushka Gunathilaka, posted a challenging 297-9 at the National Stadium Karachi.

Abid Ali got out in the 19th over by de Silva at 74 off 67 balls which included 10 fours at a strike rate of 110.44 while Babar Azam also became prey of Nuwan Pradeep at 31 off 26b after hitting two fours at the strike rate of 119.23 in 29th over.
