ARIF ALI / AFP

Sri Lanka have registered a clean sweep in their Twenty20 International (T20I) series against Pakistan.

The visitors won the third and final game in Lahore by 13 runs to complete the 3-0 whitewash over the world's top-ranked T20I side.

Chasing a modest 148-run target, Pakistan could only manage 134 for 6 in 20 overs.

At one stage, they looked set for victory with Haris Sohail's 50-ball 52 but leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga 3-21 turned the game in Sri Lanka's favour.

Earlier, Oshada Fernando struck a 48-ball 78 with three sixes and eight boundaries- the highest by a Sri Lankan player on T20I debut.
