The defeat is Pakistan's first in ten series in United Arab Emirates, their adopted home since 2009 terror attacks on the Sri Lankan team, which suspended worldwide cricket back home. Even though the 25-year-old did return to bowl on day two, he once again left the field with discomfort after bowling just three overs.

Perera finished with 5-98, his fifth five wicket haul, a performance Chandimal said was also praiseworthy. "He did not take any wickets so before we came here we spoke to him and gave him confidence and he was successful", said Chandimal.

Baut, Pakistani bowlers took revenge on the Lions and stopped Lanka's second innings in just 96 runs.

Two balls later, Shafiq edged Suranga Lakmal to Mendis and the last wicket went to Herath as Wahab Riaz (1) skied one to captain Dinesh Chandimal, who led the raucous Sri Lanka celebrations. "After the India series, I think we did really well in the first Test and these ten days".

Stat of the day This was the ninth Test Pakistan have lost in their past 11 matches, a run that started when they lost the final match of their three-Test series against West Indies in Sharjah a year ago.

"It was tough last night". Between Pakistan collapses, in which they lost 5 wickets for 52 runs and later 5 further wickets for 23, there was a 173-run partnership through which Sri Lanka had to hold their nerve. "So it was tough for the spinners".

Pakistan, who were placed sixth before this series with 93 points, have lost five points to slip down one position to seventh, with 13 points being the difference between them and the eighth-ranked West Indies, according to the latest rankings announced by ICC on Tuesday. "We knew Dilruwan was struggling in the Indian series".

That Sri Lanka had worrying moments in the fourth innings at all, however, was thanks to their own poor batting, after claiming a lead of 220.

Both of them batted at a snail's pace which put Pakistan under pressure. But we did not click as a batting unit in the second innings.

After Pakistan were bowled out for 262 in their first innings, the 32-year-old Riaz came back with a good spell of 3-10, helping the hosts restrict the Lankans to 34-5 at stumps on Day three. "We'll do better in the future". We all know that here in Dubai, it spins more than Abu Dhabi. "They did a fantastic job throughout the series".
