Playing only his second Test, Kaushal registered his first five wicket haul. Pakistan batsmen were no match infront of his mystery spin.

Younis Khan was dismissed moments after play resumed after lunch. Mohammad Hafeez was the next batsmen to removed as he was bowled by Kaushal on 42. Asad Shafiq did not last long as Kaushal trapped him leg before. Rain halted play for almost one hour. Read the lunch report of Sri Lanka vs Pakistan, 2nd Test, Day 1 here.

Seconds after play resumed following rain break, Pakistan skipper Misbah-ul-Haq was involved in a bad run out. He tried to take a run when Sarfraz Ahmed, who was at the other end, refused. Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal completed a quick run out to remove Misbah. READ: Sri Lanka-Pakistan play 50th Test

Wahab Riaz joined Sarfraz in the middle. However, Sarfraz did not last long either. Kaushal picked up his third wicket as the ball edged his bat and Mathews took an easy catch. Sri Lanka was soon seven down. Wahab was soon shown the door when he was trapped leg before off Kaushal’s bowling. LIVE CRICKET SCORECARD: Sri Lanka vs Pakistan, 2nd Test, Colombo, Day 1

Dushmantha Chameera, who has bowling very quick, clean bowled Zulfiqar Babar. The final wicket of Yasir Shah left Pakistan all out for 138. Shah smashes a delivery off Kaushal as Kumar Sangakkara ran from deep mid-on to long-on, completing a spectacular catch to hand the 22-year-old his first five-wicket haul.

Earlier, Prasad, who took the field despite having suffered a finger injury during net practice on Wednesday, struck with the first ball of his second over to make it 5 for 1. Prasad forced Ahmed Shehzad to edge a rising ball to second slip where the 37-year-old Kumar Sangakkara dived to his right to pick up a low catch. Read: Sri Lanka-Pakistan play 50th Test

Azhar Ali, who put on 46 for the second wicket with Hafeez, was dismissed for 26 when TV umpire Paul Reiffel upheld Sri Lanka’s review for a caught behind off Prasad after on-field official Richard Illingworth had turned down the appeal.

Another review by Sri Lanka in the next over for a leg-before appeal by Angelo Mathews against Khan was turned down. The on-field umpire’s decision stood as replays showed not enough of the ball hitting the top of off-stump to overturn it.

Pakistan, who won the toss and elected to bat on the hard, bouncy pitch, retained the same side that won the first Test in Galle by 10 wickets to take the lead in the three-match series.

Sri Lanka made two changes, replacing off-spinner Dilruwan Perera and seamer Nuwan Pradeep with another off-spinner Tharindu Kaushal and debutant fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 138 (Mohammad Hafeez 42, Azhar Ali 26; Dhammika Prasad 3 for 43, Tharindu Kaushal 5 for 42) vs Sri Lanka.
