Sri Lanka sitting pretty after lead creeps up to 323

Sri Lanka built on their their lead to push the figure to 323 at the end of third day’s play of the second Test, at the Galle International Stadium. The hosts didn’t make a great fist of things in the second innings, after bundling out Pakistan earlier on Tuesday for 231, but did decently instead to go to stumps at 176 for 5 as poor light forced a premature end to the day’s play.
