Aamir ruled out of Lanka ODI series

De Silva to skipper 'A' team

Sri Lankan opener Dimuth Karunaratne hit a career best 196 which left Pakistan fighting to avoid defeat in the second day-night Test in Dubai on Saturday.

Lahiru Gamage gave Sri Lanka their first breakthrough while Dilruwan Perera, Suranga Lakmal and Rangana Herath latter dismissed one batsman each. The match, second of the two-game series, is Sri Lanka's first day-night Test with the pink ball.

Pakistan's ODI series against Sri Lanka gets underway in Dubai on Friday. 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.

Sri Lanka won the first Test 21 runs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. He defused Yasir Shah judiciously again, routinely getting inside the line of the ball to work him towards square leg. Mohammad Aamir, since he returned to worldwide cricket in January 2016, has bowled 821.3 overs collectively across all three formats in global cricket, third-most by a fast bowler after Kagiso Rabada (896.3) and Josh Hazlewood (846.1). Captain Dinesh Chandimal can take a little credit as well - two of the wickets in this period came from overturning umpires' decisions, via reviews.

Amir picked up a stress-related injury of his right shin and has been advised rest for the next two to three weeks. He passed fifty for the second time in the series just after the tea break, before edging Mohammad Abbas behind, finishing with 52 off 53 balls. The sound of timber pumped up the bowler as the left-hander became his first wicket in Test cricket. Having come to the crease roughly halfway through the first session, Dickwella did as Dickwella does - heaving Yasir Shah over the legside off his ninth ball, before punching Amir through the covers soon after.

Where to watch second Test match?

Rangana Herath managed to score an unbeaten 27 as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 482.

Twenty-year-old Charith Asalanka, an off-spinning all-rounder who led Sri Lanka Under-19s last year, will serve as De Silva's deputy.
