Second Test: Sri Lanka 174-3 at dinner break

India and Sri Lanka are set to play each other once again this year

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.

Yasir Shah took 6-184 to lead the way for Pakistan's bowling attack, his fifth five-wicket haul in as many Tests.

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.

"The Champions Trophy team has been retained except Azhar Ali, who has been rested for the ODI series to gain full fitness, said Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief selector Inzamam ul Haq".

Pakistan beat the West Indies in their first day-night Test at the same venue previous year, but this will be Sri Lanka´s maiden pink-ball Test. Karunaratne deserved a double hundred during a marathon nine hour stay at the crease but he was unluckily dismissed, playing onto leg-spinner Yasir Shah just before dinner. "We all know Rangana is a legend so I am sure he will be a really good asset for this game as well", said Chandimal of his match-winner, who took his 400th Test wicket in Abu Dhabi. Chandimal scored 62 runs and Perera scored 58 runs for the team.

With skipper Dinesh Chandimal perishing early after going past his fifty in the first over of the day, Sri Lanka made a decision to be positive in their approach. Chandimal knocked six boundaries in another enterprising knock which followed his unbeaten 155 in the first Test.

Debutant Sadeera Samarawickrama impressed during his short stay of 38 runs, hitting five boundaries and a six before he miscued a pull and was caught and bowled by pacer Mohammad Amir.

By then, Pakistan quick Mohammad Amir was back in the stands, struggling after bowling only three overs with a left shin injury which forced him to rest on Friday.

Shah and Abbas mopped up the tail. However, the left-armer could only manage three more overs before the pain flared up again.
