Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test Day 1 Highlights
Day 1 highlights from the 2nd Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka taking place at Dubai.
Sri Lanka, playing in their first day/night Test, won the toss and opted to bat against Pakistan in Dubai on Friday. Openers Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva gave the visitors a good start before Yasir Shah removed the latter. Karunaratne has slammed a century.
The second Test between Pakistan vs Sri Lanka is the sixth day-night Test after the innovation was first adopted by Australia when they took on New Zealand at Adeliade in 2015. Pakistan beat the West Indies in their first day-night Test in Dubai last year but this will be the first time Sri Lanka feature in a pink ball Test.
Sri Lanka have a unique chance for a series win against Pakistan. The Lankans have won five and drawn four series in the UAE ever since the 2009 terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus forced them to play home matches out of Pakistan.
