ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Offspinner Saeed Ajmal grabbed 4-39 and fast bowler Umar Gul mopped up the top order as Pakistan bowled out Sri Lanka for 225 on Wednesday in the fourth one-day international.

Gul (3-37) had Sri Lanka reeling at 36-3 but debutant Ashan Priyanjan (78) and Kumar Sangakkara (51) hit half centuries and resurrected the innings briefly with an 89-run stand.

Sangakkara was run out in the 29th over and Priyanjan, who hit 10 boundaries, was bowled by Junaid Khan in the 36th over.

Ajmal returned to have three of the last four wickets. He had captain Angelo Mathews (38) leg before wicket and clean bowled Sachithra Senanayake off successive deliveries, and then had Lasith Malinga caught behind to dismiss Sri Lanka in 48.5 overs.
