Pakistan lose Amir as Karunaratne puts Sri Lanka on top

Misbah backs Pakistan to come strong in second Test

Test batsman Dhananjaya De Silva will lead a 16-man Sri Lanka A squad on the tour of West Indies starting next week.

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne continued his demolition of Pakistani bowlers to take Sri Lanka to 355-4 at tea on the second day of the second and final Test in Dubai on Saturday. Chandimal's team will look to become the first to win a Test series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates, whereas for Pakistan, it is a must-win encounter to save the series. Captain Sarfraz Ahmed hopes Pakistan move on from the defeat in his first Test as captain.

Herath - a long-time nemesis of Pakistan - not only completed his 400th Test wicket this time but has, overall, taken 100 wickets in 20 Test matches against the national team.

The moment Sri Lanka went after him, starting from Sadeera Samarawickrama on the opening day, Pakistan simply had nothing to fall back upon.

He added Thursday on Twitter that the company could scale up its power-storage technology for an island the size of Puerto Rico. Do you want to show the world the power and scalability of your #TeslaTechnologies? ". "PR could be that flagship project".

Pakistan beat the West Indies in their first day-night Test at the same venue previous year, but this will be Sri Lanka´s maiden pink-ball Test. Another sweep and a single off Dilruwarn brought up the fifty-run partnership just minutes the stumps but Sri Lanka wasted a chance to finally make a breakthrough.

Dimuth Karunaratne of Sri Lanka leave the field. Herath's threat won't be driving away one bit, he'll remain the same. It will be the Pakistan batting unit which will have to find ways of countering him. He's right though. It will be hard to come to terms with the post Mis-You era, but there's no way around it.

Where to watch second Test match?

That leaves Pakistan, already struggling with the ball in this Test, a bowler short going ahead - with only one specialist spinner and with Wahab Riaz enduring his own problems at one stage with his run-up. The match will be the sixth day-night Test after the first between Australia and New Zealand at Adelaide in 2015. So when the panic button shouldn't be pressed. Pakistan were dealt another blow during the session when Amir had to walk off the field once again.
