Sri Lanka hurt Pakistan with four Test wickets

Sri Lanka hurt Pakistan with four Test wickets

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

Karunaratne anchored the Sri Lanka innings with a magnificent Test-best 196 with support from Dinesh Chandimal (62), Niroshan Dickwella (52) and Dilruwan Perera (58) to get the tourists - leading the two-match series 1-0 - up to 482 all out.

Pakistan will hope for more life in the pitch as they seek to secure a share of the spoils in the two-match series.

That leaves Pakistan in a spot of bother to square the series after losing the first Test by 21 runs in Abu Dhabi and, more importantly, save their seven-year unbeaten series record in the United Arab Emirates.

Pakistan were 51 without loss in reply in the day-night Test. Sami Aslam was 30 not out, and Shan Masood on 15.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah was the pick of bowlers with 2-90 while Amir returned figures of 1-59. Having failed to score off 14 of the 17 balls Wahab bowled to him after he got to 190, Karunaratne poked at a short delivery that came back slightly off the seam.

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.

What time does the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test begin? "Amir will not bowl in the ongoing Test match at the Dubai Cricket Stadium but would be available to bat".

There is so much to play in this second and final Test in Dubai. But this being a Pakistan-Sri Lanka Test, things rarely go that smoothly for an ascendant team. Karunaratne appeared exhausted after facing 405 balls and hitting 19 boundaries and a six.

The debutant Sadeera Samarawickrama looked an exceptional talent and played a brilliant 38 runs knock off 35 balls before he fell prey to Muhammad Amir. 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.

After Karunaratne was out, Sri Lanka slid.
