Sharjah: Jan 20, 2014

Pakistan were 107 for three at tea on the fifth and final day as their chances to win the third and final Test faded away in Sharjah on Monday.

After Sri Lanka set a  daunting 302 to win in a maximum of 59 overs, Pakistan lost Ahmed Shehzad (21), Khurram Manzoor (21) and Younis Khan (29) as they were left to score another 195 in the remaining 35 overs or bat out for a draw.

Azhar Ali (29) and Sarfraz Ahmed (7) were at the crease.

The likely draw will mean Sri Lanka take the three-match series 1-0 after winning the second Test in Dubai by nine wickets. The first Test ended in a draw in Abu Dhabi.

Sri Lanka were dismissed for 214 in their second innings.

Left arm spinner Abdul Rehman was the pick of the bowlers with  four for 56, while paceman Mohammad Talha had figures of three fore 65 and Saeed Ajmal took three for 53.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 428 for 9 decl. (Kumar Sangakkara 52, Angelo Mathews 91, Dilruwan Perera 95; Junaid Khan 3 for 81, Mohammad Talha 3 for 99) and 214 (Mahela Jayawardene 46, Prasanna Jayawardene 49; Abdur Rehman 4 for 56, Saeed Ajmal 3 for 53, Mohammad Talha 3 for 65) lead Pakistan 341 (Ahmed Shehzad 147, Misbah-ul-Haq 63; Rangana Herath 5 for 125, Shaminda Eranga 4 for 60) and 107 for 3 (Azhar Ali 30*, Younis Khan 29; Suranga Lakmal 2 for 31) by 195 runs.
