  • Misbah backs Pakistan to come strong in second Test

It was another brilliant display by the Sri Lankan batsmen led by Karunaratne.

Pakistan dealt with a big blow when fast bowler Mohammad Amir was ruled out of the five-match One-Day International series against Sri Lanka that will follow the ongoing Test series in UAE.

There are a lot of questions being raised about the Pakistan team management. The 2 most trusted battle commanders gone so the match Pakistan vs Sri Lanka is going to be tough, an inoffensive and familiar enemy has suddenly become overwhelming.

Surprisingly on the second day, he was back on the field and bowled the 11th over of the afternoon.




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.

It was not surprising, although, it achieved the win. Rangana Herath unfailingly delivered the goods on the final day yet again, becoming the first left-arm spinner to bring up 400 Test wickets in history. It will be the Pakistan batting unit which will have to find ways of countering him. They feel free to come to bat and started to dominate Pakistani bowlers since the beginning of the day one. Yasir then went on to clean up the tail to finish with a six-wicket haul but considering he nearly conceded 200 runs, it will not go down as a Test match to remember for the leggie unless his batsmen make it memorable with a spirited fightback tomorrow.

This is the sixth day-night Test with a pink ball since Australia and New Zealand played the first at Adelaide in December 2015. So when the panic button shouldn't be pressed. The same XI could take the field in Dubai, hoping to keep their proud record intact, but Pakistan are forced to make a change owing to Hasan Ali's troublesome glute. So there are no grounds for a triumphant Sri Lanka to alter their combination either.
