Pakistan holds on for draw vs. Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka failed in its bid for a series-leveling victory in the third and final cricket test against Pakistan Monday, frustrated by a lengthy rain delay and the resistance of the hosts at Sharjah Cricket Stadium.
Pakistan, set an improbable 255 to win in a minimum of 61 overs, ended on 87-4 to secure a draw and wrap up a 1-0 series victory.
Sri Lanka, resuming on its overnight total of 164-5, was stalled by morning drizzle that wiped out the entire first session.
Once play finally got under way 35 minutes after lunch, the visitors pushed their score to 181-6 before declaring.
