Sri Lanka won the first Test against Pakistan by 21 runs

Sri Lanka won the first Test against Pakistan by 21 runs

The Sri Lankan seamers, expected to make life hard for the Pakistan batsmen under the lights with the pink ball in the final session, turned out to be ineffective.

Left-handed opener Dimuth Karunaratne hit a resolute century to guide Sri Lanka to a comfortable position of 254-3 at the stumps on the first day of the second Test match in Dubai on Friday.

"This is not the first time; Pakistan has lost on many occasions, chasing a meagre target to bag victory", he said, adding that the team would come back to the Dubai Test match. They have won five and drawn four in the UAE since the 2009 terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus forced them to play home matches outside of Pakistan.

There is so much to play for in the second and final Test in Dubai.

Pakistan beat the West Indies in their first day-night Test at the same venue a year ago, but this will be Sri Lanka┬┤s maiden pink-ball Test.

What wasn't surprising, though, was how the win was achieved.

The left-arm pacer bowled two overs on Day 2 but left the field again, then was being taken to a hospital. Herath remained not out with his 27 runs so far. The match will be the sixth day-night Test after the first between Australia and New Zealand at Adelaide in 2015.

The first Test Centurion Captain Dinesh Chandimal demonstrated his brilliant form with the bat, and along with Karunaratne established a 118-run partnership for fourth wicket which still continues. The same XI could take the field in Dubai, hopefully, it can have a record intact. Yasir then went on to clean up the tail to finish with a six-wicket haul but considering he nearly conceded 200 runs, it will not go down as a Test match to remember for the leggie unless his batsmen make it memorable with a spirited fightback tomorrow.

Angelo Mathews missed the first Test, has now been ruled out of the second in spite of his injury.
