Sri Lanka aim to build on their lead as they resume Day Four of the second Test against Pakistan at 177 for two leading by 165 runs. On a wicket like this,  the Lankans are hoping that 200-250 would be sufficient.

The highlight of the Day three was Rangana Herath picking nine wickets in the innings to become the left-arm bowler to achieve such a feat. Herath awed everyone with a scintillating display of orthodox bowling. With a 12-run lead, the Pakistan bowling attack missed their main force Junaid Khan who got injured while facing Dhammika Prasad earlier in the morning session.

The Lankan openers started off solidly again before they fell in quick succession. However, Mahela Jayawardene playing his final Test progressed solidly while his partner Kumar Sangakkara is on 54. The partnership is worth 98 runs.

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka 320 and 177 for 2 (Upul Tharanga 45; Kumar Sangakkara 54*, Mahela Jayawardene 49*; Abdur Rehman 2 for 65) lead Pakistan 332 (Ahmed Shehzad 58, Asad Shafiq 42, Sarfraz Ahmed 103;  Herath 9 for 127) by 165 runs.
