Preview:

Pakistan have never lost a Test series in the UAE since making it their adopted home in 2010. Six teams have tried previously, and six teams have failed, Sri Lanka included. They have stonewalled, barricaded, intimidated, junkyard dog-ed, dust bowl-ed, and have done whatever necessary to maintain their stranglehold. While swathes of empty blue and white chairs were bearing witness, Pakistan were progressing. They were moving slowly, sometimes painfully slowly, but they were moving. And that progress eventually got them to the top of the Test rankings, albeit briefly. Now, with two of their most trusted battle commanders gone, an innocuous and familiar enemy has suddenly become overwhelming. The fortress is under siege.

There is so much to play for in second and final Test in Dubai. It will be the first day-night Test that Sri Lanka will be a part of, and they can commemorate it by attaining a historic series win. The visitors probably surprised even themselves by what happened in Abu Dhabi. After all their struggles at home against India - plunging to record whitewashes - which led to resignations of their selectors, then losing Angelo Mathews to injury; to come back from all that and beat Pakistan at a venue they have never lost in, it was incredible.

What wasn't surprising, though, was how the win was achieved. Rangana Herath unfailingly delivered the goods on the final day yet again, becoming the first left-arm spinner to bring up 400 Test wickets in history. Also, Pakistan panicked in the face of pressure - not for the first time. Herath's threat won't be dissipating one bit, he'll remain the same. It will be the Pakistan batting unit which will have to find ways of countering him.

"This is a young batting line-up obviously trying to find their way," was Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur's best attempt at trying to make sense of what had transpired on a crazy final day. 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. And there's no better time to groom their young batsmen than right here, right now. The pitch in Dubai shouldn't play a whole lot differently than Abu Dhabi, so there are runs to be had again. That said, it will be interesting to see how Sri Lanka face any difficulties in adapting to the nuances of a day-night Test.

Team news:

Pakistan

It was one bad day which cost Pakistan the first Test; not even that, it was probably a couple of bad sessions. As such, the panic button shouldn't be pressed. The same XI could take the field in Dubai, hoping to keep their proud record intact.

Sri Lanka

Angelo Mathews, who missed the first Test, has now been ruled out of the second as well due to his calf injury. So there's no reason for a triumphant Sri Lanka to change their combination either

Pakistan changed the ball at 63 overs, umpire need to work hard to finds correct ball from the box which is also 60 overs old.sometime you loose wickets with replacement ball.

Karunaratne Cong for 100, I think this guy has problem like Joe, who dismiss in 80/99 as many as 7 times besides his 7 century.he is near 3000 test runs plus he scored 847 in 2017.

Pakistan continued their mistake by not picking up specialist spinner to support Yasir because Wahab/Abbas seems toothless on slow track.

254 for 3 off 90 overs

We are struggling.
Unless there's a spectacular SL collapse in the 2nd innings, I think we're losing this series.

Having visited Sri Lanka late last year on holiday, I have fallen in love with that country.
I was always fond of it anyway, but only when I went there, I realised how soft-spoken and nice the people are.
They're also cricket-mad, but their cricketers are not deified like BCCI cricketers.
Sadly, there's a lot of corruption in Sri Lanka too - as in India.

Yet another Beard guy dismiss before Lunch 92 for 3, PAKISTAN'S neighbor country has all 11 members with Beard,this could be good trivia Question.

Poor signal on my TV Sunday maintenance of my optimum Internet.Azhar Ali only good batsman left in the Pakistan line up because One can not trust Babar and Sarfu in test match League, Hearth 4/0/6/0.

Congratulation Gamage for Maiden test wicket on debut

Herath gets Azhar Record 8 th time in Successive 6 test matches
Certainly a iconic archivement.He was playing WRONG LINE.

He (59) and Harris (38*) put on 71 in 29 overs.Pakistan 180 / 5


Sarfu no body outside ODI

Raja,

Where are you ? Wahab Riaz on Fire : SL 35 for 5 : 255/5 over -all
Pakistan 262 all out ( 3 w. Each to Herath/Perera /2 w - Gamage)

15 wickets a day for 246 runs

1-Do you think SL should enforce Follow-on, instead bats again ?

2-Match might over on day 4,Right? Vs 3 specialist spinner of SL.

3-Shan Masood/ king Khan yunus chasing 382 successfully vs SL on fifth day, Do you think Pakistan succesfully even reach 295/314 on 4 th innings here on day 4?

4- s.Ravi Pakistans most trustworthy umpire,is third umpire.Do you think its make any difference in outcome of the game as --- so many players were given LBW by S.Ravi
3rd umpire?

Azhar gave press conference in Dubai , ""yes we beat them in Pallakele by scoring 377 so we are optimistic if we have to chase 300 here because wicket helping to fast bowlers more
Masha - Alla-H we can bowl them out on day 4 early on""

Last test pak not even reach 136 plus history says since 2016 they are beaten 7 th time on day 5th batting failure bowls out from 81-229 all out except Pallekeles road (382 for 3 , winning by 7 wickets)

What a fantastic contest this is turning out to be.
In the first Test, we managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Here SL seem to be returning the favour.

It's only the 4th day today (and the weather is not an issue in Dubai), so it should be a superb second innings chase for us.
I don't think SL will escape this one.

Since last 400 days your Guys managed 81 to 229 in the 4 th innings in 7 tests except Pallekelle were boys winning because King khans batting display with 382 for 3 on Road.

We need one partnership of 35/40 or even 25

Dickwella's 40 sink Pakistan at Abu Dhabi, just now he hits 21 ball 21 lead is 291 with 3 more wits Pakistan need to capture.

Wahab Riaz 144 NO BALL vs ISHANT Sharmas 225 ( career )

220 Lead,Harris took 3 in one over as Lanka 96 all out

Pakistan need 317 to win,A wicket here but Gamage on debut NO ball.
Gamage once again gets Aslam in the same over 5 for 1

The Offie had the ball on string, he found a length which made it really hard for the batsman to counter.India's Pras had complete mastery over Flights, we not see too many spinner like Pras in modern day, test cricket.

Test cricket is best cricket -- Herath still looking for first wicket here after 70 overs of the innings!

Record stands by Sarfaraz/Shafiq here,140*. I wonder who were hero when Pakistan hits 450 in Australia ?

Record stands by Sarfaraz/Shafiq here,140*. I wonder who were hero when Pakistan hits 450 in Australia ?

Shafiq was hero then too.

India / SL test same happen when DC Hits 162* to sink India.What a test that was?
India also lost by 12 runs vs Pakistan with Sacin's Efforts in Vain, probably in India because I do not think SAchin ever plays in Pakistan.

Sachin did Fielding for Pakistan under Imran khan in Mumbai before his test debut,I read somewhere.

SL might not twice Lucky tomorrow but anyway it's going to be yet another thriller

I think Asad Shafiq was in limelight last year on highest average with number 6 player in tests Or 9 century by number 6 in test but Hey he is too good, no doubt about it.

Looks like Pakistan will win this. Good fightback.

Wahab Riaz hurt the Lankans.

On another note, I saw the snap GS posted and was spooked. They are playing in front of empty ground. Looks desolate.

Even Ranji matches in India attract more crowd than this.

Why you says Pakistan will win? Amir/Abbas/Yasir/Wahab not good as batsman on day 5 wicket plus new ball will be due after 42 balls.SL should not slog vs Harris's 3 ball which hurts them more because 340/348 to win give more psychological Adventage to SL.


Shafiq in the 90's now partnership 150 now,this two put on 139 together in Galle test so that stands broken.
203 for 5 after two ball on day 5
Oct.10,'17 : Ind & Pak beaten in Int'L same day.

Pakistan will win easily. It will not come down to Yasir or wahab. This pair is comfortable.

Congratulation Shafiq for 11 th century

Pakistan missed great adventage here because their skipper out on slog for 68 while SL now take new ball with new batsman in.

Sarfu was not comfortable today,First he was nearly run out plus loose his concentration in the last over on Hugh Stumping appeal involving 3 rd umpire

Amir who just hit lovely 4 given LBW by Ground Umpire.5 for Perera when Herath still remain Wicketless.

230 for 7

Catches win matches
Fine slip catch,Asad dismissed 25 run short of his best score of 137
SL need one more wicket,that's it

your next test in May /June will be yet again 2/0 ( Lords + Leeds Venue) White wash of Pakistan without Yunis

Herath took 2 wickets -- Pakistan lost last 5 in 23 runs.cong.Srilanka for 2/0 & good luck in India in November / Dec.test series there vs Ash etc.

Big vacation for Pakistan cricketer for test matches

First test 35 for 5 ; 2nd innings
2 nd.test 52 for 5 :2nd innings

Top order must need to improves vs Root's England otherwise their Route will be worst vs Topley/Anderson and Ball
