Dubai: January 11, 2014

Pakistan, fighting to save the second Test against Sri Lanka, were 189 for four at lunch on the fourth day in Dubai on Saturday.

Pakistan lost key batsman Younis Khan for 77 in the first session before Misbah-ul Haq (74) and Asad Shafiq (18) saw them through to lunch.

Pakistan, who conceded a big 223-run lead on first innings, need another 34 runs to avoid an innings defeat.

Younis and Misbah added 129 runs for the fourth wicket.

Paceman Nuwan Pradeep has figures of two for 41.

The first match of the three-Test series ended in a draw in Abu Dhabi last week.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 165 (Khurram Manzoor 73; Nuwan Pradeep 3 for 62, Rangana Herath 3 for 26) and 189 for 4 (Younis Khan 77, Misbah-ul-Haq 74*; Nuwan Pradeep 2 for 41) trail Sri Lanka 388 ( Kaushal Silva 95 , Mahela Jayawardene 129 , Angelo Mathews 42 ; Junaid Khan 3 for 102) by 34 runs.
