Sri Lanka seal 2-0 series win

Resuming at 183-3, Kumar Sangakkara's unbeaten 130 helped Sri Lanka draw the third and final Test against Pakistan in Colombo.

Though Sri Lanka was in an admirable position to race to a win at teatime, the defensive field set by Younis Khan, and some dour batting by the Sri Lankan's meant that the match was called off with 101 runs needed from the 16 remaining over's. For the record Sri Lanka was 391-4 when play was called off.

With this draw, Sri Lanka closed the series at 2-0 and consolidated their 4th place ranking in the Reliance Mobile ICC Test Championship table.

Sri Lanka Cricket honoured Chaminda Vaas, who played his last Test, with a memento and one million Sri Lankan rupees in cash.

Are you advocating a 6 days Test match? :)
