Dinesh Chandimal left stranded on 94

An unbeaten 94 by Dinesh Chandimal has put Sri Lanka in a commanding position in the first Test against Pakistan as they finished at 337 all out on day four in Galle. Sri Lanka have a comfortable 341 run lead and should feel content as no team has chased that many to win a Test at this venue. Former captain Chandimal, who top-scored with 76 in the first innings, was a thorn in Pakistan’s flesh again as he stitched vital partnerships with the tail. He raised his 23rd half-century with a single to covers off Naseem Shah.
