Pallekele, Jun 7: Mohammad Hafeez led Pakistan to a six-wicket win against Sri Lanka with more than seven overs to spare in a rain-shortened one-day international against Sri Lanka on Thursday.

After claiming 2-20 from 10 overs as Sri Lanka totaled 135-8 from 42 overs, Hafeez top-scored for Pakistan with 37 as the visitors eclipsed the target in 34.1 overs to win on the Duckworth-Lewis Method.

Umar Akmal (36 not out) and Misbah-ul-Haq (30) also contributed for Pakistan at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.

Earlier, Umar Gul took 3-24 and Mohammad Sami 3-19 to rip through Sri Lanka's batting line-up.

Lahiru Thirimanne hit an unbeaten 42 and put on a 50-run stand for the eighth wicket with Nuwan Kulasekara (18).

There are four more matches in the series.
