SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Mohammad Hafeez hit his second century of the series and opening batsman Ahmed Shehzad made 81 as Pakistan scored 326-5 against Sri Lanka in the third one-day international on Sunday.

Hafeez, who scored a century at the same venue in the series opener last Wednesday, made Sri Lanka pay heavily for dropping him on 26. He went on to a career-best unbeaten 140 with 11 fours and three sixes.

Shehzad shared a 160-run second wicket stand off 167 balls with Hafeez before he was run out in the 31st over after hitting six fours and two sixes.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq scored a brisk 40 off 26 balls as Sri Lanka conceded 105 in the last 10 overs through some wayward bowling.

Thisara Perera picked up 2-58.

The series is tied at 1-1.
