In response 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 similar mode in the following over. His partner, Abdullah Shafique, who was looking to be busy while facing the spinners was trapped LBW by Prabath Jayasuriya, leaving the game tantalizingly poised at the end of the first day.

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