The lefty speedster Muhammad Amir was able to make his first breakthrough of the series while it was mostly the spinner Yasir Shah, who proved to be difficult for the batsmen. He bowled 29.3 overs and removed two batmen. It was Karunaratne, who proved to be headstrong for Pakistan. Silva provided a good support to Karunaratne and was able to score 27 while the debutant Samarawickrama also made a handy score of 38 runs before being caught and bowled by Amir.

Karunaratne has already hit three quality hundreds in this year. He fell short of a hundred by only seven runs in the first test match and was run out. A lot of hopes relied on Chandimal and the skipper is doing a brilliant job in the absence of Matthews. It was the opening stand which steered Sri Lanka towards a decent and sturdy day 1 total. The debutant Samarawickrama seemed to be strong at the pitch and played decent shots off Yasir Shah. The bowler also treated the debutant hostility. Sarfraz moved Amir forward against the batsman and Samarawickrama fell prey to the speedster, getting removed at 38 off 35, an innings that included 5 fours and a six.
