Dinesh Chandimal century boosts Sri Lanka against Pakistan

Dinesh Chandimal century boosts Sri Lanka against Pakistan

That stand between Haris Sohail - who became the first Pakistan debutant to get a fifty batting at No. 6 or lower since Asad Shafiq - and Hasan Ali came off just eight overs at a scoring rate of 6.25.

1 - Rangana Herath became the first left-arm spinner in Test history to take 400 Test wickets. He added 79 for the third wicket with Asad Shafiq who made 39 to take the figth to Sri Lankan three-pronged spin attack.

All it did, as it turned out, was delay both the inevitable defeat for Pakistan, as well as Herath becoming the first left-arm spinner to take 400 wickets in Tests. Herath has dismissed Azhar in each of the seven innings in his last five Tests against Pakistan.

He said: "Coach, I prefer to stop myself, otherwise I risk to have a bad injury". "It's a simple tactical decision". I like players who are used to thinking about the team and are used to thinking about "us", not "me".

It took nearly four days for the first 20 wickets of the match to fall and then only a little over a day for the next 20 dismissals as Pakistan crumbled to quality spin an hour or so into the final sessions of the match. "We should have chased this target", said Arthur, who saw Pakistan slide to a 10th defeat in 16 Tests since he took over past year.

It was an innings of ultimate patience and extreme concentration levels as the 28-year old skipper put Sri Lanka in the driving seat. The first two innings of this Test took 11 sessions to complete. Every young player goes to talk to him about his bowling and experiences. But, upon closer inspection, it was revealed that Dilruwan had overstepped and Yasir was given another opportunity to lead Pakistan to victory.

But veteran Herath (six for 43) and his fellow finger spinner Dilruwan Perera (three for 46) had other ideas.

He threatened to poison 20 jars of baby food if stores didn't pay the $11.8 million - equal to 10 million euros - by Saturday. Police have nevertheless alerted people buying groceries to be aware of suspect packaging which may have been tampered with.

Herath grabbed a five-wicket haul in each innings (5/93 and 6/43) to finish with 11 wickets in the match which saw Sri Lanka defend 135 runs in an exciting contest on the final day of the first Test. Credit goes to people like Dickwella and Karunaratne.

Replying to a question by Geo News, Arthur stated that Pakistan had needed only one stable partnership to reach the target. Dickwella was unbelievable in the second innings, he got us to the 140 mark. The second Test - a day-night affair - starts in Dubai from Friday. "It took me a long time (to make runs), but that is how you play on this pitch and I'm happy". "We all know Pakistan are a very good team. I've played almost 20 Tests, maybe that's why", he said.

Asked how long he would like Herath to play in his side, given he is nearing 40, Chandimal made a little wish.
