The tourists resumed on 127-7 with Sarfraz Ahmed (38) and Wahab Riaz (2) at the crease.
They added a further 24 runs before first-innings centurion Sarfraz was dismissed for 55 when he swept Chanaka Welegedara into the hands of Kumar Sangakkara at deep square leg.
Only 3 Pakistani wicket-keepers have made two 50+ scores in same Test match. Sarfraz Ahmed is the only one to do it twice! #SLvPak— Mohandas Menon (@mohanstatsman) August 18, 2014
Three overs later, Wahab went for 17 with Herath, who took nine wickets in the first innings, prompting a false shot and the top edge being pouched by Kaushal Silva at short cover.
With Junaid Khan absent after being hit on the head by a Dhammika Prasad bouncer on Saturday, the match was all over inside an hour.
Angelo Mathews’ side climb above Pakistan in the ICC Test rankings after the victory.
