Pakistan fought back in the first session and took wickets at regular intervals to restrict Sri Lanka 388, triggering a collapse on Day Three of the second Test at Dubai. Sri Lanka though, did take an early breakthrough through with opener Ahmed Shehzad nicking a sharp delivery by Rangana Herath to keeper Prassana Jayawardane.

 

At lunch on Day Three, Pakistan are at 11 for one in their second innings. They trail Sri Lanka by 212 runs.

 

Sri Lankan captain Angelo Mathews and Mahela Jayawardene were threatening to take the game away from Pakistan but Rahat Ali got an early wicket to send Mathews back to the pavilion for his overnight score of 42. The pair had accumulated 93 runs for the fifth wicket.

 

Prasanna Jayawardene didn’t last long either after Junaid Khan sent his off stump packing and Rangana Herath ran himself out foolishly, looking for a non-existent single.

 

Running out of partners at the other end, Jayawardene looked to get a move on in his typical style, nudging the ball and running hard. Saeed Ajmal finally got his much-awaited wicket after the veteran Sri Lankan’s reverse sweep went awry to depart for a well made 129.

 

Shaminda Eranga perished quickly too looking for quick runs after he dragged Bilawal Bhatti’s delivery back on to the stumps.

 

Junaid Khan, yet again ,was the most dangerous of the Pakistan attack and finished with figures of  three for 102 and the Pakistan support cast rallied around him quite ably on day three.

 

The Sri Lankan tail tried hard to stretch the score to 400, but Nuwan Pradeep was trapped in front by Ajmal and Sri Lanka were all out for 388.

 

Brief scores:

 

Pakistan 165 (Khurram Manzoor 73; Nuwan Pradeep 3 for 62, Rangana Herath 3 for 26) and 11 for 1 (Ahmed Shehzad 9; Rangana Herath 1 for 4) trail Sri Lanka 388 ( Kaushal Silva 95 , Mahela Jayawardene 129 , Angelo Mathews 42 ; Junaid Khan three for 102) 212 by runs.
