After winning the fifth and final ODI at Sharjah, Pakistan handed Sri Lanka a bitter 5-0 whitewash. Courtesy of a fine spell by Usman Khan, Pakistan registered their second clean sweep against Sri Lanka. After winning the toss Lankan skipper Upul Tharanga opted to bat but the decision backfired as the top-order batsmen failed to get a start as Usman Khan ran through the top-order in his fiery spell. At one point, Sri Lanka were reduced to 49/6 and from thereon they could never recover from the setback as they were ultimately bowled out for 103. Chasing a modest total of 104,  Fakhar Zaman (48) and Imam-ul-Haq (45 ) guided their side to a comfortable win. Pakistan’s win sent Twiteratti into a frenzy as they couldn’t help but applaud their team’s monumental effort.

Fantastic victory, congratulations @SarfarazA_54 brilliant start for Usman. Sri Lanka need to dig deep and fix this slump.
