Sri Lanka at 180/3 in 2nd Test against Pakistan

And facing a tricky spell of batting towards the end of the day, Shan Masood and Sami Aslam navigated 18 overs for Pakistan to give them some hope going into the third day.

Though Dimuth Karunaratne failed to register his first double-ton, his 196 helped Sri Lanka post a mammoth score of 461 for7 before the teams headed for dinner on Day Two of second Test against Pakistan.

It will be the first day-night Test that Sri Lanka will be a part of, and they can commemorate it by attaining a historic series win. Sri Lankan skipper Chandimal said Pakistani batsmen struggle against Herath.

Karunaratne batted with authority and style to reach his seventh Test hundred off 197 balls, hitting Mohammad Amir for two consecutive boundaries to complete three figures.

When on 143 he completed his 3,000 runs in 44th Test. Leg-spinner Yasir Shah has figures of 4-172.

That is when Pakistan bowlers could have put him under pressure and taken a couple of more wickets to push Lanka on the backfoot completely.

England┬┤s Sydney Barnes holds the record for most consecutive five wicket hauls with seven in as many Tests. Sri Lanka had already amassed 302 for the loss of four wickets when the pacer was taken off, and have since chugged along nicely, building up a total of over 400.

At the close of the day, Karunaratne (133 n.o.) and captain Dinesh Chandimal (49) were at the crease, sharing an unbroken stand of 118 for the fourth wicket.

Chandimal knocked six boundaries in another enterprising knock which followed his unbeaten 155 in the first Test. After his dismissal, Dilruwan Perera scored a half-century to do further damage to their opponents.

"Amir has been ruled out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a stress related injury in the right shin". Although he was cleared to bowl on Saturday, Amir could manage to bowl only three overs before hobbling off again.
