ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Mohammad Hafeez led Pakistan to a robust eight-wicket victory over Sri Lanka by smashing a third century of the series in the fourth one-day international on Wednesday, giving his side an unbeatable 3-1 lead in the series.

Hafeez hit an unbeaten 113 off 119 balls with 12 fours and two sixes and equaled Zaheer Abbas' Pakistan record of three centuries in a bilateral ODI series as Pakistan raced to 226-2 in 41.1 overs.

Offspinner Saeed Ajmal (4-39) and fast bowler Umar Gul's 3-37 had earlier bowled out Sri Lanka for 225 in 48.5 overs despite debutant Ashan Priyanjan (74) and Kumar Sangakkara (51) hitting half centuries.

Hafeez has a chance to go one better than Abbas' record in the last match of the series on Friday.
