Centuries by Sanath Jayasuriya and Aravinda de Silva saw off Pakistan as Sri Lanka scored a crushing eight-wicket win in the Golden Jubilee tournament in Lahore yesterday.

Jayasuriya hit 134 not out and De Silva an undefeated 102 as Sri Lanka overtook Pakistan's 280 with 10 overs to spare. The pair put on a Sri Lankan one-day record stand of 213 for the third wicket.

Sri Lanka qualified for the final, where they meet South Africa on Saturday. Before that, the two teams meet each other in the last round-robin match in the tournament today.
