ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Lasith Malinga finally made an impact as a fast bowler in the series when he grabbed 4-57 as Sri Lanka bowled out Pakistan for 232 in the fifth and final one-day international on Friday.

Malinga, who had taken just two wickets in four matches, gave Sri Lanka hope of finishing the series on a consolation high, as Pakistan has an unassailable 3-1 lead.

Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq scored 51, his 15th half century of the year, before falling to Malinga. Misbah confirmed he'll finish 2013 as the leading run-scorer in one-day internationals.

Allrounder Anwar Ali, playing his first match of the series, hit a vital unbeaten 41 off 38 balls at the end.

Suranga Lakmal, with 3-42, wrapped up the innings by claiming the last two wickets off successive deliveries as Pakistan was bowled out in 49.3 overs.
