While Shehzad got a thick inside edge off Prasad on the third ball of the second over in the match, Manzoor was trapped leg-before by the right-arm Sri Lankan pacer as he gave his side early momentum in the day.Pakistan were 20 for two after eight overs with Younis Khan and Azhar Ali at the crease.

Earlier, Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq won the toss and elected to bat against Sri Lanka in their first Test match of their two-match series.
