The day began with Sri Lanka resuming from their overnight score of 261 for eight. The Pakistani seamers, who had displayed some brilliant bowling on the first day to restrict the hosts after a good start, failed to repeat their magic with the ball on the second day as the tail-enders managed to add 59 runs to the scoreboard to take the Lankans to a respectable 320. Chanaka Welegedera contributed to the run-flow with a quickfire 27 from 30 balls including five boundaries.

The start of the Pakistani innings saw Mahela Jayawardene get a Guard-of-Honour at the venue which has been a happy hunting ground for him, having scored 11 out of 34 Test centuries. Pakistan got off to a good start as they started attacking from the word go. Herath was the first to strike for the Lankans. The ball kept crossing the boundary line regularly and Angelo Mathews was left looking at further options in spite of introducing star spinner Herath in the fifth over itself.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 244 for 6 (Ajmal Shehzad 58, Azhar Ali 32, Sarfraz Ahmed 66*;  Herath 5 for 98) trail Sri Lanka 320 (Upul Tharanga 92, K Silva 41, Angelo Mathews 39; Junaid Khan 5 for 87) by 76 runs.
