OUT! L.B.W. Naseem Shah to Vishwa Fernando. Half volley, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. The morning has barely begun but Pakistan have already wrapped up the Test match. Three wickets in as many overs with two for Naseem Shah which takes him to five overall. The youngest player to ever take that many in a Test. Full and straight did the trick for him with Vishwa not wanting to get in line against the extreme pace.A brilliant victory for Pakistan back on home soil and they deserved it after fighting back from their below-par effort with the bat on day one. To come back from a first innings deficit and win by such a margin is outstanding. Credit has to go to their batsmen in the second innings and then the bowlers to wrap up the match in style. Sri Lanka will be hurting after not being able to make their lead count but the one shining light was a maiden ton for Oshada Fernando who looks like a good find for them.That is the series wrapped up and it has been a very enjoyable one. Hopefully Pakistan fans have a lot more opportunity to see cricket back home in the future.

OUT! Caught. Yasir Shah to Oshada Fernando. Leg spinner length ball, off stump on the back foot Steer, mis-timed to first slip, by Shafiq. That is almost catching practice for Shafiq at slip. Came off the face of the bat as Oshada tried it run it for the single but the extra bounce meant he couldn't control the shot. Sri Lanka have crumbled this morning.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Lasith Embuldeniya. Short, down leg side ducked Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. It's day 5 and it is likely that there is going to only be one result. Pakistan have taken full control of this match in the last couple of days and with only three more wickets remaining they are well on their way to a historic Test win. Most of the work yesterday was done by the impressive Naseem Shah and he will eyeing up a maiden Test five-wicket haul. For Sri Lanka they have to hope Oshada Fernando can continue his fantastic performance and hopefully pull off something magical.The dream start. No looseners from Naseem as he is right on the money with a sharp bouncer. Embuldeniya gets himself into an awful tangle and feathers a glove to the keeper. It needed the review but Pakistan got the result they wanted. Hat-trick ball coming up.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Pakistan are just able to sneak in another over before stumps and one ball was all they needed. Perera drawn into feeling at a ball he could easily have left. Naseem Shah's extra pace will do that to a lot of batsmen over the years. Oshada Fernando remains unbeaten on 102 and Sri Lanka need another 264 runs to win. Pakistan are closing in on a very emotional series victory in their first series on home soil since 2009. Join us tomorrow.
