Chasing 122, Pathum Nissanka guided Sri Lanka to an easy win although his side lost a few early wickets.
Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka made ducks.
However, Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dasun Shanaka held firm under pressure.
Haris Rauf and Mohammad Hasnain bagged two wickets each, but Hasan Ali and Usman Qadir conceded more than eight runs per over – which cost Pakistan a lot in a match.
