Sri Lanka dominate Pakistan in second Test

De Silva to skipper 'A' team

Mohammad Amir will miss Pakistan's five-match one-day worldwide series against Sri Lanka due to a right shin injury.

Dilruwan went on to score 58 off 76 balls, which included seven boundaries, before Sri Lanka began to lose wickets in a hurry.

Having lost the first Test last week, the hosts saw Sri Lanka run up 482 on day two, before closing on 0-51 in response.

Karunaratne fitted Sri Lanka's mighty innings with its spine, though, but to summarise his 63 runs on day two is to re-hash the account of his progress from day one.

Putin Hosts Saudi King to Talk About Oil, Syria
Lavrov said the Saudi monarch and Putin's meeting saw a "particular focus on Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen". Relations between the two countries in the past have often been strained.

A combination of fitness issues, low bowling resources and a charged-up Sri Lankan team have brought Pakistan to the brink of their first Test series defeat in UAE ever since they moved base to the country after the terrorist strike on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009. Chandimal, who was dropped on 1, was finally out for 62, bowled leg before by Yasir Shah. Australia's Charlie Turner and Englishman Alec Bedser had six consecutive five-fours - but all three were fast bowlers.

Not only did Karunaratne play a watchful innings to give Lanka a steady start after the visitors elected to bat after winning the toss but he also anchored the innings from time to time to keep Pakistan at bay. He had bowled 16.3 overs on Friday before coming out to bowl only two overs on day two. Swinging the ball in to the batsman, then straightening it off the seam, Lakmal collected Shafiq's edge and had him caught low to the ground, by a tumbling Kusal Mendis at first slip. Late on day one, Amir left the field nursing an injury to his shin, but he had been cleared to bowl on the second day, and yet, could manage no more than three overs before leaving the field again. The momentum and belief their openers provided on Saturday (October 8) after stitching a fifty-run partnership before stumps were lost on the third morning of the Test match.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test in Dubai will be broadcasted live on PTV Sports for & Sony Pictures Network on both SD and HD channels.

After Karunaratne was out, Sri Lanka slid.
