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

Pakistan faced a bad and unfortunate defeat at the first Test against Sri Lanka and going to lost the series if cannot manage victory in second which is also last Test.

They lead the two-match series 1-0. This was the second time he had left the field in between the day's play.

Sami Aslam was trapped leg before by Dilruwan Perera, the offspinner, for 39 to leave Pakistan two down for 65.

However, after beating Pakistan at their home venue, the Lions are in great confidence in second match.

It can be considered as a bad day which cost Pakistan the first Test; not even that, those match was in the bad sessions. Pakistan's joy after ending the mammoth 146-run partnership between Chandimal and centurion Dimuth Karunaratne was shortlived as Niroshan Dickwella's entry only made matters worse.

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Dimuth Karunaratne scored his seventh Test Century, and scored unbeaten 133 runs at Stumps.

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.

Pakistan claimed wickets in consecutive overs to apply some pressure midway through their opponents' innings, with Kusal Mendis adding just one run before following Samarawickrama back to the pavilion. Herath's threat won't be dissipating one bit, he'll remain the same.

With no other frontline spinner in the side, leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been forced to the bulk of the bowling.

Shah took 6-184 in a marathon 55.5 overs of hard work and toil on a flat Dubai stadium pitch.

Amir, Mohammad Abbas and Wahab Riaz, who was brought in for ailing young Hasan Ali, seemed to be struggling for swing and bounce.

Now, came to chase the score, Pakistan has stood still in front of the Lions and lost none till now.

"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".
