Sri Lanka are all set to take on a low on confidence Pakistan side in the second Test of two-match series in Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) at Colombo. They already defeated the visitors in a thrilling run-chase at Galle and 1-0 up in the series. But the second Test will have a different atmosphere altogether. More than keeping their lead intact, the Lankans will be focused on notching a win and pay a fitting farewell to their legend Mahela Jayawaradene on his home ground.
Hosts will be high on confidence after what they achieved at Galle. A high-scoring first innings for both sides had ensured that it was meandering towards a draw until Rangana Herath spun it back in favour of the hosts. It was a well-oiled performance from the Lankans. And nothing boosts the confidence of the team more than seeing the captain leading from the front. Angelo Mathews has been unstoppable since he took over the captaincy.
