He has set a new record of forgetting run-up for five times in a row against Sri Lanka.

Dimuth Karunaratne fell agonisingly short of a maiden Test double-century and Pakistan lost Mohammad Amir to injury on Saturday's second day of the second and final Test in Dubai, as Sri Lanka gave themselves an excellent chance to seal a series victory. "We never underestimate Pakistan, they are a really good side, especially in the last couple of series they have played really good cricket", said Chandimal, whose team will replace Pakistan at sixth in the world rankings with a series win.

These all are some terms of the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match which is maintain its stranglehold.


An FIR filed by Pakistan cricket team management against Sri Lankan spinner Rangana Herath trespassing underneath the Pakistani batsmen's beds at night is being probed by the Dubai Police, The Dependent has learnt.

Pakistan faced a bad and unfortunate defeat at the first Test against Sri Lanka and going to lost the series if cannot manage victory in second which is also last Test. Herath's threat won't be dissipating one bit, he'll remain the same. Karunaratne was unbeaten on a solid 170 for his seventh Test hundred, alongside Niroshan Dickwella on 47 not out, as Sri Lanka added 101 runs after resuming at overnight total of 254-3. He's right though. It will be hard to come to terms with the post Mis-You era, but there's no way around it. Pakistan will also hope spearhead Mohammad Amir returns to form with the pink ball after going wicketless in the first Test. Debutant Haris Sohail provided a positive in the batting after scores of 76 and 34, while Azhar Ali hit 85.

On day one of the Day-Night Test, Amir had hurt his right shin and returned to the dressing room towards the close of play on Friday. And there's no better time to groom their young batsmen other than in the various match sessions. So there are no grounds for a triumphant Sri Lanka to alter their combination either.
