Mohammad Amir ruled out of Pakistan ODI series against Sri Lanka

De Silva to skipper 'A' team

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

The second Test has started in 6th October, 2017 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai which is a day night match.

Sri Lanka, a surprise victor of the first Test in Abu Dhabi, can become the first team to beat Pakistan in a Test series in the United Arab Emirates if it doesn't lose this second match. Now, team Pakistan needs to secure the series by winning the match and to ensure it, they need to make a long partnership but day by day, the pitch nature will change and bowlers would get favour.

Test batsman Dhananjaya De Silva will lead a 16-man Sri Lanka A squad on the tour of West Indies starting next week. Karunaratne appeared exhausted after facing 405 balls and hitting 19 boundaries and a six.

When on 143 he brought up his 3,000th run in his 44th Test, the 12th Sri Lankan to reach that milestone. "We all know Rangana is a legend so I am sure he will be a really good asset for this game as well", said Chandimal of his match-winner, who took his 400th Test wicket in Abu Dhabi.

England's Sydney Barnes holds the record for most consecutive five wicket hauls with seven in as many Tests. Mohammad Aamir, since he returned to global cricket in January 2016, has bowled 821.3 overs collectively across all three formats in worldwide cricket, third-most by a fast bowler after Kagiso Rabada (896.3) and Josh Hazlewood (846.1).

Karunaratne added 146 with skipper Dinesh Chandimal (62) for the fourth wicket before another 88 were put on for the fifth between him and Niroshan Dickwella, who made a rapid 52.

Karunaratne and Dilruwan Perera kept the scoreboard ticking with a 59-run stand before Karunaratne's time at the crease came to an end when he was four runs short of his maiden double hundred.

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

Karunaratne played both spinners and pacers easily as he hit 14 boundaries in his century.

Shah and Abbas mopped up the tail.

Amir left the field in the afternoon session due to a shin injury that will prevent the paceman from bowling in the second innings and keep him out of the one-day worldwide series.
