Amir ruled out of one-day series with injury

De Silva to skipper 'A' team Cricket: Sri Lanka in first day and night Test Match – encounter to commence today

The second Test has started in 6th October, 2017 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai which is a day night match. And if they do manage that, the flawless storm created in Pakistan's dressing room would have played a major role in it.

Pakistan's ODI series against Sri Lanka gets underway in Dubai on Friday. "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.

Karunaratne missed out on a maiden Test double-century when he played on to a delivery from Wahab Riaz, who earlier took six attempts to bowl the fifth ball of an over before finally getting his run-up right.

With skipper Dinesh Chandimal perishing early after going past his fifty in the first over of the day, Sri Lanka chose to be positive in their approach. He struggled with the same issue on day one of the Test as well. Toss will take place half an hour prior to the first ball - 14:30 hrs PST.

The match Pakistan vs Sri Lanka is now at the top of the Test rankings, although briefly. 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.

After Karunaratne was out, Sri Lanka slid.

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 left-arm pacer will not bowl in the ongoing second Test at the Dubai Cricket Stadium but would be available to bat.

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.
