Sri Lanka reached lunch on Day Two of the second Test at 132 for the loss of three wickets, trailing Pakistan by a mere 33 runs. Opener Kaushal Silva stood firm, unbeaten on 40 with veteran Mahela Jayawardene, unbeaten on 19, after the loss of Kumar Sangakkara and Dinesh Chandimal.

Earlier, Sangakkara stroked a couple of fine shots to the fence before being trapped plumb in front by Rahat Ali for 26.

Chandimal walked at No 4 and Junaid Khan forced the issue with a short ball, which the batsman hooked straight to Rahat Ali at fine leg for 12.

Jayawardene looked set for a big score but was cautious enough to not do anything silly as he attracted a lot of criticism for his poor show in the first Test.

Pakistan bowlers toiled hard for wickets but the Sri Lankan batsmen carefully negotiated the bowling attack with minimal risks. Sri Lanka are only 33 runs behind and will look to build a substantial lead by the end of Day’ s play.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 165 (Khurram Manzoor 73; Nuwan Pradeep 3 for 62, Rangana herath 3 for 26) lead Sri Lanka 132 for 3 (Dimuth Karunaratne 32, Kaushal Silva 40*, Kumar Sangakkara 26; Junaid Khan 2 for 36) by 33 runs.
