Left-arm fast bowler Usman Khan Shinwari ripped apart Sri Lanka's top order with 5/34 as Pakistan eyed a whitewash by dominating the tourists for 103 in just 26.2 overs in the fifth and final one-day international on Monday. Shinwari, playing in only his second ODI, claimed four of his wickets in his first two overs before adding one more in a sensational 21-ball spell that made Sri Lanka 20/5.

Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga, who won the toss and opted to bat first, drove the hat-trick ball to cover boundary before Shinwari had the skipper bowled off a delivery that nipped back sharply into the left-hander.

Niroshan Dickwella was the third man to get dismissed for nought when Khan had him lbw off another sharp incoming delivery. Milinda Siriwardana capped Sri Lanka's top order batting woes in the series when he played another lose the drive to get caught at covers.

Ali then reduced Sri Lanka to 49/6 when Lahiru Thirimanne (19) was caught behind and Seekkuge Prasanna was run out.

Thisara Perera (25) was one of the four batsmen to cross the double-figure mark, hitting a six and three fours, before falling to legspinner Shadab Khan, who finished with 2/24.
