Sri Lanka target landmark series win over Pakistan

Inept team management needs better planning to win second Test

Sarfraz said Hasan Ali, the fast bowler, had suffered a side strain in the first Test, and would be replaced by Wahab Riaz. The two teams have gone head-to-head with each other in a series comprising two Tests, five ODIs and three T20s. It will be the first day-night Test that Sri Lanka will be a part of, and they can commemorate it by attaining a historic series win.

The second test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan will be played today at the Dubai global Cricket Stadium.This is the sixth day-night test match to be played with the use of a pink ball.

Masood had a stroke of luck when he was given not out and Chandimal chose not to review after Dilruwan struck the opener in front, replays showing he should have been given, and Aslam ought to have been run out following a mix-up but Pakistan got through to stumps without losing a wicket. It beaten Pakistan by 21 runs in first Test played in Abu Dhabi from September 28 to October 2. Chandimal anchored the batting with a polished 155 not out in Sri Lanka's first-innings total of 419, ably filling in for the more experienced Angelo Mathews, who didn't travel with the squad due to a calf injury.

There is so much to play for in the second and final Test in Dubai.

The communique further notes that Sadeera Samarawickrema may be called in as his replacement. Herath also reached 100 wickets against Pakistan during the first Test, but Chandimal warned that the Sri Lankan's opponents should not be taken lightly.

These all are some terms of the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match which is maintain its stranglehold. Both countries have won a match each in their two previous test encounters at the Dubai International Stadium.

However, the pink ball will test the visitors to some extent as they have never played an worldwide day/night test before. The match will be the sixth day-night Test after the first between Australia and New Zealand at Adelaide in 2015.
