On day one of the ongoing second Day-Night Test against Sri Lanka, Amir had hurt his right shin and returned to the dressing room towards the close of play on Friday. This was the second time he had left the field in between the day's play.

When Pakistan resumed at 51-0, paceman Lahiru Gamage who took his first wicket in Test cricket, bowling Shan Masood through the gate after the opener had made 16.

Sri Lanka won the first Test 21 runs at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. Then he struck Chandimal in front with a ball that would have gone on to clip the top of leg stump.

However, after beating Pakistan at their home venue, the Lions are in great confidence in second match.

The only extended wicket-free patch of day three came in the second session, as Azhar and Sohail made 71 runs in each other's company.

Imam scored 848 runs at an average of 49.88 last season, with three hundreds including a double-century for Habib Bank Limited. Karunaratne started to make partnership with different players and gave his wicket in 6th in number which means, he played with five different players in the match though he was an opener. Karunaratne appeared exhausted after facing 405 balls and hitting 19 boundaries and a six.

England's Alec Bedser had six consecutive tests with five-wicket hauls in either inning of the Test.

At dinner, Lanka were 174-3, with both Chandimal and Karunaratne holding fort. Chandimal took a little while to get adjusted to the conditions as he scored just one run off the first 23 deliveries he faced.

Wahab Riaz, in one of his wonderfully intense bursts, uprooted three batsmen while conceding only 10 runs, as Yasir Shah and Mohammad Abbas took one wicket apiece.

Amir, Mohammad Abbas and Wahab Riaz, who was brought in for ailing young Hasan Ali, seemed to be struggling for swing and bounce. "We never underestimate Pakistan, they are a really good side, especially in the last couple of series they have played really good cricket", said Chandimal, whose team will replace Pakistan at sixth in the world rankings with a series win.
