Centurion Karunaratne leads the way for Sri Lanka

Inept team management needs better planning to win second Test

Amir had limped off the field during the second's day's play of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Dubai.

He also shared a century partnership with Chandimal for the fourth wicket to steady the innings after Lanka had lost two quick wickets in the second session of the day. For them, Yasir Shah claimed 6 for 184, becoming the first spinner to take five-wicket hauls in five successive Tests.

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

Yasir Shah struck in the 23rd over as he got Silva caught by captain Sarfraz Ahmed to bring a temporary respite to the Pakistan camp. Australia's Charlie Turner and Englishman Alec Bedser had six consecutive five-fours - but all three were fast bowlers. All Sri Lanka had to do when they began their second innings was to see out the new ball, with a view to scoring roughly 200 on day four in order to set up a declaration.

Amir got rid of Samarawickrama, ending his 69-over drought of going wicket-less in Test matches.

But, it is Harry and another, rather different little lady that has got us all swooning for the Prince now. Prince Harry has his popcorn pinched by 2-year-old Emily Henson at the Invictus Games in Canada.

They started the day on 254-3 and looked like they could carry their bats to stumps on day two, until opener Karunaratne was sixth man out, an inside edge deflecting on to his stumps just before dinner.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test in Dubai will be broadcasted live on PTV Sports for & Sony Pictures Network on both SD and HD channels. He scored 196 runs by playing 405 balls. Chandimal anchored the batting with a polished 155 not out in Sri Lanka's first-innings total of 419, ably filling in for the more experienced Angelo Mathews, who didn't travel with the squad due to a calf injury.

In any event, Wahab collected himself at the tea break, and it was his discipline that helped keep Pakistan in the match through that Amir-less second session.

Chandimal knocked six boundaries in another enterprising knock which followed his unbeaten 155 in the first Test.

Moreover, Sadeera's inclusion can be a blessing in disguise for Sri Lanka as Lahiru Thirimanne has not done so well in the recent past.
