Pakistan wins first home Test series in a decade


Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by 263 runs in the second and final Test in Karachi to complete a 1-0 series victory.

It took the hosts just 14 minutes and 16 balls to clinch Sri Lanka’s last three wickets when play resumed on Monday.

Chasing 476 for victory, Sri Lanka were all out for 212 in their second innings.

Sixteen-year-old Naseem Shah, who picked up 5 for 31 became the youngest pace bowler to take five wickets in an innings of a Test match.

Abid Ali was awarded both the man of the match and the man of the series for scoring centuries in the two Tests.

The series, which began with a drawn match in Rawalpindi, marked Pakistan's first Test matches on home soil since the 2009 militant attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in Lahore.
