Pakistan did not go into the Test series against Sri Lanka as favourites. This was specifically because they had not won a Test series in Sri Lanka in nearly a decade. But, it must be said they put up a fantastic performance to pull off a memorable series triumph.
With the three-Test series tied 1-1, both Pakistan and Sri Lanka will look to go all out to clinch the series in the third Test at Pallekele. Pakistan won the first Test at Galle with ease while Sri Lanka fought back equally well to claim the second match at Colombo comprehensively.
