Pakistan were all out for 451 in their first innings at tea on the second day of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle on Thursday. Younis Khan made 177 and Sarfraz Ahmed and Abdur Rehman hit half-centuries to help the tourists pile up a big score. Off-spinner Dilruwan Perera grabbed the last five wickets in the post-lunch session to finish with figures of five for 137. Rangana Herath claimed three for 116.

Pakistan started the day with an attacking intent and used their sweep to negate the threat of Rangana Herath. But when Sri Lanka came into bat, their intent was clear that their batsmen will not allow the Pakistani bowlers to settle down. The mighty Kumar Sangakkara and Kaushal Silva went on to steer the Lankan innings after they lost Upul Tharanga pretty early.

 

Sri Lankan batsmen will look to dominate  the Pakistani bowlers on Day 3 of the first Test match at Galle. Sangakkara will look to develop on his score and Silva also would like to keep the scoreboard ticking.
