Prabath Jayasuriya starred with a five-wicket haul as Sri Lanka won the match by 246 runs.
The two-Test series ended 1-1. Jayasuriya got Agha Salman out for four at the stroke of lunch in Galle to leave Pakistan needing an inconceivable 320 to win, or to ride out the last two sessions for a draw and a 1-0 series victory.
The tourists were 188 for five with Azam batting on 76 after four wickets fell in the mo ing session.
Pakistan resumed on 89. Off-spinner Ramesh Mendis struck on his first ball of the day to get Imam-ul-Haq caught behind, with the left-handed batsman adding just three to his ove ight 46. Jayasuriya, who took one wicket on day four, cut short Mohammad Rizwan's stay on 35 with his left-arm spin.
Meanwhile, with this victory, Sri Lanka have advanced to the 3rd place in the points table of the ICC Test Championship. Pakistan is in 5th place.
