Kolkata - Mohammad Hafeez hit a 49-ball undefeated 70 and left-arm spinner Imad Wasim claimed 4-25 as Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by 15 runs on Monday in a warm up game for the World Twenty20 Super 10 stage, which starts Tuesday.

Choosing to bat, Pakistan scored 157-5 with Hafeez getting nine fours and one six.

Defending World T20 champion Sri Lanka was restricted to 142-9 with Lahiru Thirimanne top-scoring with 45 off 37 balls, including two sixes.

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

Pakistan could not play its planned game against a local state side on Saturday due to a delay in departure owing to security concerns.
