The decision was taken mutually by both the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in order to ensure the ground staff get an additional day to ensure the playing conditions are better after the first match was washed out due to rain on Friday (27).

Pakistan now lead the three-match series against Sri Lanka 1-0. While praising Pakistan's vice-captain after he a century in the second ODI of the series against Sri Lanka, Afridi said that the youngster is capable of scoring a double-century as well.

The opener scored 133 from 134 balls in the third and final match in Karachi, but Sri Lanka could still only manage 297-9 from their 50 overs.

For Sri Lanka, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Isuru Udana and Oshada Fernando made way for Minod Bhanuka, Lakshan Sandakan and Angelo Perera.

Besides Gunathilaka, all-rounder Shanaka smashed a whirlwind 24-ball 43 with five boundaries and two sixes as Sri Lanka added 50 in the last five overs.
