Pakistan needed just 16 balls on the final morning to beat Sri Lanka by 263 runs and complete their first Test series victory on home soil for 13 years.

Sixteen-year-old Naseem Shah became the second youngest player to take a five-wicket haul as the tourists, chasing 476, were dismissed for 212 in the second Test.

Starting the day 212 for seven, Sri Lanka lost their last three wickets without adding to their overnight total.
