Ahmed Shehzad smashed 95 off 90 balls as Pakistan thrashed below-par Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the fourth one-day match in Colombo on Wednesday to clinch the five-match series.
Mohammad Hafeez chipped in with 70 as the tourists surpassed Sri Lanka's 256 for 9 in the 41st over at the Premadasa stadium to take a decisive 3-1 lead in the series.
The series win kept Azhar Ali's Pakistan in contention for a place in the eight-nation Champions Trophy in England in 2017.
Pakistan's one-day success follows their 2-1 victory over Sri Lanka in the preceding Test series under Misbah-ul Haq's captaincy.
