Result: Pakistan snatch third Test win to draw series against Sri Lanka

Pakistan win the third Test against Sri Lanka in dramatic circumstances to draw the series.

Pakistan have drawn the three-Test series against Sri Lanka in the United Arab Emirates thanks to a dramatic victory in Sharjah.

Sri Lanka opened up a first-innings lead of 87 but were then bowled out for just 214 in the second innings, with none of their batsmen achieving a 50 or more.

That left Pakistan requiring 302 runs in the final two sessions of the Test on day five, something that they achieved with just a couple of overs remaining.

They reached 107-3 at tea before Azhar Ali achieved his century in the final session to guide Pakistan towards victory.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq saw them home by reaching 68 not out by the end and hitting the winning run to spark jubilant scenes in the Pakistan camp.
