Prabath Jayasuriya raps Abdullah Shafique on the pads

In reply to Sri Lanka’s 222, Pakistan lost both their openers cheaply. Kasun Rajitha, after having a review against Imam-ul-Haq for LBW, had him trapped in the same mode in the following over. His partner, Abdullah Shafique, who was looking to be proactive against the spinners was then trapped LBW by Prabath Jayasuriya, leaving the game on an even keel at the draw of stumps on Day 1. Earlier, Shaheen Afridi finished with a four wicket haul.

Brief Scores: 222 (Dinesh Chandimal 68*, Maheesh Theekshana 38; Shaheen Afridi 4-58) lead Pakistan 24/2 (Prabath Jayasuriya 1-2) by 198 runs
