Thisara Perera followed his four wickets with 75 off 86 balls as Sri Lanka seized control of the final Test against Pakistan on Tuesday. Pakistan, seeking a series-levelling win, paid for sloppy fielding as Sri Lanka recovered from a middle-order collapse to make 337 in their first innings on the third day.

The tourists, trailing by 111 runs, were 27-1 in their second knock by stumps, losing opener Taufeeq Umar for four, leg-before to Nuwan Kulasekara.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 226 & 27/1;

Sri Lanka 337 (Samaraweera 73, Perera 75; Junaid 5/70)
