Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st Test Day 2 Highlights Today 29 Sep 2017

Watch Pakistan vs Sri Lanka cricket highlights today on 29-9-2017. PAK vs SL first Test day 2 highlights. Sri Lankan batting has seen worst of times during the recent series against India. Now they face Pakistan’s bowling which demands extra layer of professionalism to face and play. Yesterday Sri Lankan batting faltered in the start but soon they recovered and courtesy Karunaratne and Chandimal’s efforts, they have gained good position in the first Test.

Sri Lanka had threatened to collapse again, going to lunch at 61 for 3, but the century stand between Karunaratne and Dinesh Chandimal raised them out of danger. Niroshan Dickwella then added a finishing spark to the day, hitting 42 off 63 balls, and Sri Lanka reached a comfortable – if not quite safe – 227 for 4 by stumps.

The day had begun with so much promise for Pakistan – Yasir striking twice in that first session – but the bowlers could not manage a breakthrough in the second session. Hasan was intense in a seven-over burst of reverse-swing before tea, but though he drew an outside edge from Chandimal, and an inside edge from Karunaratne, a dismissal did not come. Late in the day, Chandimal was given out lbw for 58 when he shouldered arms to Mohammad Abbas, but that decision was overturned on review. Pakistan also burned their own reviews trying to get Yasir another wicket. Under the new rules, reviews are not replenished after 80 overs, so they are at the mercy of the umpires for the remainder of this innings.
