Second Test, Colombo
Scorecard

Mahela Jayawardene's final Test ended in glory and a 2-0 series win over Pakistan after Sri Lanka completed a 105-run win over Pakistan in the second and final game in Colombo.

Jayawardene had scored his 50th Test century on day four before Pakistan were reduced to 127 for seven having been set 271 to win.

And although Sarfraz Ahmed followed up his century in the first innings with 55, Rangana Herath returned figures of five for 57 as Pakistan were bowled out for 165.

Chanaka Welagedara dismissed Sarfraz and with Junaid Khan unable to bat, Herath put the seal on a dream send-off for Jayawardene by dismissing Wahab Riaz for 17.

Sri Lanka won the first Test in Galle by seven wickets.
