HIGHLIGHTS

  • Babar Azam has also completed 10,000 international cricket runs
  • Sri Lanka is leading with 40 runs in their second inning
  • Babar Azam and Naseem Shah made 70 runs for the 10th match

Babar Azam scored his seventh Test century to be the equal rider for Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the Inaugural Test taking place at Galle International Stadium.

After bowling with the hosts 222 in the first inning, Pakistan struggled early after Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq were sacked.

At Stumps on Day 1, Babar went undefeated with Azhar Ali as his teammate. On day two, the guests were pushed with their feet after being dropped to 85 for seven of 38.4 passes.

Since then, Babar has gone on to score 119 runs of 244 balls assisted by 11 quads and two sixs. Mohammad Rizwan scored 19 runs before Ramesh Mendis captured his prized scalp.

Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali scored 18 and 17 runs respectively and loaned Babar’s assist. After they went out, Naseem Shah and Babar combined 70 times as partners for the 10th wicket. Pakistan was eliminated in round 218, far ahead of Sri Lanka with the lead in four rounds.

Prabath Jayasuriya, who excelled against Australia in the second test, took a 5 and showed his class. Maheesh Theekshana and Mendis picked up two wicks each.

In their second inning, Sri Lanka scored 36 runs from 11.5 passes. Mohammad Nawaz earned the appreciation of the opposition captain, Dimuth Karunaratne, who scored 16 out of 29 with two quadruped kicks.

Oshada Fernando and night watchman Kasun Rajitha are the ones who score overnight for the home team. Shaheen Afridi and Agha Salman failed to make a breakthrough.
