Wasim dismissed Thirimanne and also accounted for opener Dinesh Chandimal (30), Chamara Kapugedera (14) and Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews (10).

Earlier, openers Sharjeel Khan (23) and Ahmed Shehzad (18) added 39 runs for Pakistan's opening wicket.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed (13) and Umar Akmal (19) also contributed for 2009 champions Pakistan, but captain Shahid Afridi got a golden duck in the 19th over.

Pakistan was originally set to play a local state side on Saturday but delayed its departure for the tournament owing to security concerns.
