Second Test: Sri Lanka 174-3 at dinner break

Second Test: Sri Lanka 174-3 at dinner break

The match, second of the two-game series, is Sri Lanka's first day-night Test with the pink ball.

While Masood was intent on blocking his way out, Aslam created some scoring opportunities. But will have to see in these conditions how the ball behaves as it is very hot out here. 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. Ironically, video replay showed the ball missing the stumps.

This would have been the seventh-highest-scoring FBS game in the nation over the weekend, just on overtime points alone. It lasted less than a year, as the combined 139 points are two more than what the Panthers and Orange accumulated.

Karunaratne and wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella made up for the loss of Chandimal with an 88-run partnership, during which Dickwella brought up his fifty. 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. Later on in the second session, Riaz was warned for running onto the danger area. But Dilruwan ensured that the momentum was never lost as he too started off in fine fashion, scoring at more than run a ball.

Speaking to media earlier on Thursday, Ali said batting on the fifth day of Test matches has usually been challenging. Yasir, who had to do the bulk of the bowling, especially in Mohammad Amir's absence, continued to leak runs despite fetching a lot of turn from the surface.

There isn't much known about the BlackBerry Motion yet, however, we are pretty sure to know more about it in the coming weeks. The phone in question is seen with a home button and a front-facing fingerprint scanner embedded in the BlackBerry logo.

At dinner, Lanka were 174-3, with both Chandimal and Karunaratne holding fort. Chandimal took a little while to get adjusted to the conditions as he scored just one run off the first 23 deliveries he faced. Nevertheless, he was given a standing ovation for a stupendous knock that can possibly land the series for Sri Lanka.

According to insiders, the batsmen have also criticised the board's decision to organise a day and night Test match - the third that Pakistan will play and second at Dubai - given what is happening at night. Chandimal, who was dropped on 1, was finally out for 62, bowled leg before by Yasir Shah.
