Wanindu Hasaranga was player of the match for his 3-21 (wickets of Sohail, Sarfaraz and Asif)

Wanindu Hasaranga also won player of the series trophy for taking 9 wickets in the series.

The young guest team has already won the series by winning two back to back matches, defeating home side by 64 runs in the opener and the outplaying them by 35 runs in the second game.
