Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test today

It can be considered as a bad day which cost Pakistan the first Test; not even that, those match was in the bad sessions.

Chandimal followed his 155 not out in the opening Test with another confident innings, collecting five boundaries as the Sri Lankan pair blunted Pakistan's bowling attack.

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.

Meanwhile, the 29-year-old Dimuth Karunaratne scored his seventh Test Century, and scored unbeaten 133 runs at Stumps.

Dimuth Karunaratne made a career-best 196 as Sri Lanka racked up 482 against Pakistan on day two of the second Test on Saturday.

Earlier, Lanka got off to a steady start as Kaushal Silva and Karunaratne added 63 runs for the first wicket, frustrating Pakistan bowlers.

Karunaratne and Dilruwan Perera kept the scoreboard ticking with a 59-run stand before Karunaratne's time at the crease came to an end when he was four runs short of his maiden double hundred.

Karunaratne moved seamlessly from 133 overnight to 196, 10 more than his previous highest score, nearly two years to the day against West Indies in Galle. Herath's threat won't be driving away one bit, he'll remain the same. Leg-spinner Yasir Shah is the pick of the bowlers with 3-120. His tally so far in the series is 84 overs in Abu Dhabi and 55.5 already in Dubai. Herath also reached 100 wickets against Pakistan during the first Test, but Chandimal warned that the Sri Lankan's opponents should not be taken lightly.

Shan Masood and Sami Aslam navigated 18 overs for Pakistan to give them some hope going into the third day. "We never underestimate Pakistan, they are a really good side, especially in the last couple of series they have played really good cricket", said Chandimal, whose team will replace Pakistan at sixth in the world rankings with a series win.
