  • Inept team management needs better planning to win second Test

Though they ceded a 220-run first-innings lead to Sri Lanka, so total was their dominance in the last 14.3 overs of the day, that their hopes of squaring the series live for another day. Dilruwan and Herath claimed three wickets each, while Suranga Lakmal and Lahiru Gamage took two apiece.

It is worth mentioning here that Sri Lanka is leading the two-match Test series 1-0.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test is a day-night encounter and it will begin at 15:00 hrs PST (11:30 GMT).

Sadeera Samarawickrama and Roshen Silva, both of whom are part of the Test squad in the ongoing series against Pakistan in United Arab Emirates, will join the A-side once that series wraps up.

When on 143 he brought up his 3,000th run in his 44th Test, the 12th Sri Lankan to reach that milestone.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah was the pick of bowlers with 2-90 while Amir returned figures of 1-59. Australia's Charlie Turner and Englishman Alec Bedser had six consecutive five-fours - but all three were fast bowlers.

Resuming at 3-254, Sri Lanka lost Chandimal to a lbw decision off Yasir. Ironically, video replay showed the ball missing the stumps.

There is so much to play in this second and final Test in Dubai.

The sequence of events will raise questions about why he wasn't taken for a scan earlier and why he was allowed to bowl at all on the second day. Karunaratne appeared exhausted after facing 405 balls and hitting 19 boundaries and a six.

However, Pakistan's task was made harder by Mohammad Amir being ruled out of bowling for the rest of the game - and the forthcoming one-day series - by a stress injury in his shin.

In any event, Wahab collected himself at the tea break, and it was his discipline that helped keep Pakistan in the match through that Amir-less second session. Incredibly, having bowled 84 overs in the first Test, he had already delivered 55.3 overs in Dubai.

Rangana Herath managed to score an unbeaten 27 as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 482. Sami Aslam and Shan Masood are still in field for the team. Six teams have tried previously, and six teams have failed, Sri Lanka included.
