Sri Lanka scored huge runs in 2nd Test at Dubai

Inept team management needs better planning to win second Test

Pakistan will also hope spearhead Mohammad Amir returns to form with the pink ball after going wicketless in the first Test. Debutant Haris Sohail provided a positive in the batting after scores of 76 and 34, while Azhar Ali hit 85.

Sri Lanka, a surprise victor of the first Test in Abu Dhabi, can become the first team to beat Pakistan in a Test series in the United Arab Emirates if it doesn't lose this second match.

Unlike the first Test, the second Test is a day-night match, first ever between Pakistan and Sri Lanka while the second at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Sri Lankan Left-handed Dimuth Karunaratne has steered his Side to a solid position in Second Test against Pakistan as the Islanders ended Day 1 at Dubai with 254 runs for 3 on Friday.

Karunaratne continued to make Pakistan suffer with Amir departing for a scan after bowling only three overs, working the ball into the leg side with great skill and countering the threat of Yasir as the aggressive Dickwella played his shots at the other end.

He says the ATF is working to answer questions about reported weapons modification, including how, and if it was done. Lombardo said the authorities had found no manifesto or anything else to explain Paddock's actions.

Wahab has looked considerably less incisive than Hasan Ali, who got injured after the first Test in Abu Dhabi, and his ridiculously long 19th over was about the only highlight for him in Dubai apart from Dimuth Karunaratne's dismissal'. He scored 52 runs so far. Herath's threat won't be driving away one bit, he'll remain the same.

Dilruwan followed soon after getting bowled round his legs by Yasir but his 76-ball 58 had done enough damage by then.

Now, came to chase the score, Pakistan has stood still in front of the Lions and lost none till now.

Trailing by 482 runs, Pakistan made a solid start to their innings as Sami Aslam and Shan Masood amassed an unbeaten 51-run partnership before stumps was called.

Considering the fact that he had walked off the field during the first day itself, it begs the question why Pakistan's team management did not take him for a scan immediately and allowed him to bowl with a shin injury on the second day.
