Pakistan skipper Younis Khan was pleased to finish the ODI series winning the last two matches and praised his players for good performance.

 

The visitors defeated Sri Lanka by 132 runs in the final match in Colombo, a second consecutive victory which helped the visitors regain some lost pride after defeats in the first three matches in Dambulla.

 

Younis said his team had fallen slightly short on the batting front, but was nevertheless pleased with the victory.

 

"We perhaps did not get as much as we should have, but I think we did well by putting on 280 after winning the toss," Younis said.

 

"Chasing this score under lights is always difficult.

 

"Overall, it was a great performance from the team once again."

 

The Pakistan skipper put the defeat in the ODI series down to his team's struggle to cope with pressure.

 

"In the games in Dambulla, it was always hard batting first, but here in Colombo it was the case batting second," he said.

 

"I think in the end, our victories in these two games here shows there isn't a great deal of difference between the two teams.

 

"It's just that we haven't handled the pressure very well and that's the reason for our defeat in the series."
