Another Pakistan revival puts win in sight in 2nd test

After almost 10 years, Pakistan lost a Test series at home after they failed to chase down 119 runs needed on the final day of the 2-match Test series with five wickets in hand.

Sri Lanka went to stumps with a 254-run lead over Pakistan after 15 wickets fell on a turbulent Day 3 of the second test.

At the interval Asad Shafiq (four) and Sarfraz Ahmed (seven) were at the crease as Pakistan, needing another 255 runs to win, face their first series defeat in United Arab Emirates since adopting it as their home venue in 2009. Asad Shafiq was 86 not out off 141 balls, and captain Sarfraz Ahmed was 57 off 113 balls.

That same duo came to the crease on Tuesday with 119 still needed but Sri Lanka remained patient, Dilruwan Perera's 5-98 helping to secure the series 2-0 after a similarly engrossing 21-run success in the opener in Abu Dhabi.

His century in the first innings of this series set the shock win in motion. They made 400, we still made 400 against them. "Captaincy is very different in Tests - it changes session by session". We had experienced bowlers like Hasan Ali and (Mohammad) Amir but unfortunately, couldn't get the wickets. The 23-year-old has played four T20Is with two out of it coming in the recently concluded series against World XI at home but is yet to make an appearance in the other two formats.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed and Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal. "But we learnt a lot of things from that series as a team and as individuals", said Chandimal, who had a word of praise for the selectors for keeping their faith in the players. So I knew they will do their job in this session and I am really happy with the way we played. All those series wins have come against Pakistan.

The pacer, however, made amends for the blip as he took three wickets in a fiery spell on the third day on Sunday.

In the first innings, Wahab Riaz finished with a spell of 1-62 from 26 overs, after having picked up the crucial wicket of opener Dimuth Karunaratne, who missed out on a double ton, departing for 196.

"I think we just didn't play this series well and to say we didn't get the time to prepare is wrong - we did our preparations right".
