Sri Lanka faced a record chase of 492 runs after Pakistan declared their second innings at 425-9 soon after lunch on the fourth day of the third and final cricket Test in Colombo on Thursday.

The highest successful fourth innings chase in history is by the West Indies, who scored 418-7 to beat Australia at St John's, Antigua in 2003.

The most runs scored in the fourth innings to win a Test at the Sinhalese sports club in Colombo is 326-5 by Sri Lanka against Zimbabwe in 1998.

The hosts are looking to sweep the series 3-0 after winning the first two Tests.
