Lahore - Inexperienced Sri Lanka completed a 3-0 clean-sweep of their Twenty20 series over world number one Pakistan on Wednesday with a 13-run victory in Lahore.

Jehan Mubarak and Danushka Gunathilaka -- who both scored 46 each -- had held the previous record for most runs on Twenty20 debut for Sri Lanka.

Pakistan's start was once again disastrous as they lost aggressive opener Fakhar Zaman off the first ball of their innings, bowled by Kasun Rajitha for nought.

Earlier, Sri Lanka rode on a brilliant maiden half century by Fernando who held the innings together after Sri Lanka lost two wickets for 28 runs in four overs.

Pakistan were once again sloppy in the field, dropping as many as four catches while Sarfaraz spurned a stumping chance behind the wicket.

Since then Pakistan have hosted a World XI, Sri Lanka (both in 2017) and the West Indies last year.
