Pakistan defeats Sri Lanka in 2nd Test

Naseem Shah’s maiden 5-wicket haul allowed Pakistan to secure the game in just 3 overs on Day 5:

Pakistan defeated Sri Lanka in a historic Test match at National Stadium Karachi. The home side won the game by a huge margin of 263 runs as Pakistan’s first home Test series came to an end. It took barely 3 overs on Day 5 of the 2nd Test for the hosts to secure the 3 wickets which were keeping them away from a series victory against Sri Lanka by 1-0.

In the first innings of the 2nd Test, Pakistan opted to bat first but the entire team collapsed on just 191 runs. Babar Azam scored 60 runs for 96 balls, while Asad Shafiq contributed 63 runs for 126 balls. Sri Lanka’s Lahiru Kumara and Lasith Embuldeniya both claimed 4 wickets each for their team.

Sri Lanka would have suffered the same fate as the home side in their first innings but Dinesh Chandimal and Diruwan Perera’s gutsy batting brought Sri Lanka on 271 runs with a lead of 80 runs. Dinesh Chandimal scored 74 runs from 143 deliveries and Dilruwan Perera added 48 runs from 84 balls.

Mohammad Abbas and Shaheen Shah Afridi led the bowling attack for their team. Mohammad Abbas claimed 4 wickets for 55 runs in 27 overs, while Shaheen Shah Afridi claimed his maiden 5-for in National Stadium Karachi.

In Pakistan’s second innings, the same team that lost all their wickets on 191 runs amassed a mammoth total of 555/3 in their second innings. Pakistani openers Shan Masood and Abid Ali took a stand of a whooping 278 runs, the second-highest in Pakistan’s history of cricket.

Shan Masood scored his 2nd Test hundred and finished his inning on 135 runs from 198 deliveries. Abid Ali, the star of the game, scored his second consecutive century in the 2nd Test match of his career. He scored 174 runs from 281 balls before getting lbw by Lahiru Kumara.

Pakistan’s skipper Azhar Ali celebrated his 16th Test hundred, his 1st in the past 12 months, and finished his innings on 118 runs for 156 balls. Babar Azam, Pakistan’s best batsman, also scored his 4th Test hundred and 2nd consecutive one after his unbeaten 102 against Sri Lanka in Rawalpindi Test.

Thus, all top 4 batsmen scored single hundreds and it was only the second time in all history that such an event took place. The first time was when India faced Bangladesh in 2007 and the top 4 batsmen of India scored hundreds.

After Babar’s ton, Azhar Ali declared the innings on 555/3 and Sri Lanka had to chase 476 runs to win the match and secure the series.

Sri Lanka struggled from the start after they lost 5 of their wickets for just 97 runs. The match looked way out of their reach at this point but opener Oshada Fernando shared a 104 runs partnership with wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella to take Sri Lanka across 200.

Oshada Fernando scored his maiden Test hundred and lost his wicket after scoring 102 runs for 180 balls. Niroshan Dickwella celebrated his 14th Test half-century and finished his innings on 65 runs.

After losing both of them, the visitors lost the remaining wickets by 212 runs and lost the 2nd Test by 263 runs. Naseem Shah claimed his first 5-for in his 3rd Test match.

Abid Ali named “Player of the Series” as Pakistan secures the Test series against Sri Lanka by 1-0:

Abid Ali was named the “Player of the Match” in both Tests and also the “Player of the Series” for his 321 runs in 3 innings with an average of 160.5. He fully utilized the chance he received after waiting for so many years and first-class matches. He has now proved to everyone that he is, without a doubt, a very talented player. We only hope that he keeps up his performance in the matches to come.

OUT! L.B.W. Naseem Shah to Vishwa Fernando. Half volley, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. The morning has barely begun but Pakistan have already wrapped up the Test match. Three wickets in as many overs with two for Naseem Shah which takes him to five overall. The youngest player to ever take that many in a Test. Full and straight did the trick for him with Vishwa not wanting to get in line against the extreme pace.A brilliant victory for Pakistan back on home soil and they deserved it after fighting back from their below-par effort with the bat on day one. To come back from a first innings deficit and win by such a margin is outstanding. Credit has to go to their batsmen in the second innings and then the bowlers to wrap up the match in style. Sri Lanka will be hurting after not being able to make their lead count but the one shining light was a maiden ton for Oshada Fernando who looks like a good find for them.That is the series wrapped up and it has been a very enjoyable one. Hopefully Pakistan fans have a lot more opportunity to see cricket back home in the future.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Lasith Embuldeniya. Short, down leg side ducked Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. It's day 5 and it is likely that there is going to only be one result. Pakistan have taken full control of this match in the last couple of days and with only three more wickets remaining they are well on their way to a historic Test win. Most of the work yesterday was done by the impressive Naseem Shah and he will eyeing up a maiden Test five-wicket haul. For Sri Lanka they have to hope Oshada Fernando can continue his fantastic performance and hopefully pull off something magical.The dream start. No looseners from Naseem as he is right on the money with a sharp bouncer. Embuldeniya gets himself into an awful tangle and feathers a glove to the keeper. It needed the review but Pakistan got the result they wanted. Hat-trick ball coming up.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Pakistan are just able to sneak in another over before stumps and one ball was all they needed. Perera drawn into feeling at a ball he could easily have left. Naseem Shah's extra pace will do that to a lot of batsmen over the years. Oshada Fernando remains unbeaten on 102 and Sri Lanka need another 264 runs to win. Pakistan are closing in on a very emotional series victory in their first series on home soil since 2009. Join us tomorrow.

Sri Lanka will be delighted with their days work, after losing the toss they've worked hard and been rewarded. Pakistan will be disappointed with their effort though, 6 wickets lost to bowled/lbw dismissals and the last 6 wickets falling for just 24 runs.

Start of Pakistan Innings. Hello and welcome to the start of the second Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. After a soggy affair in Rawlpindi the two teams move on to Karachi in the hope of better weather and better fortune. In times gone by Pakistan have had a tremendous record at the National Stadium and they'll be looking to replicate that on their return to the venue. The report from the pitch is that there is some live grass on the surface and there might be early help for the seamers, something which has been traditional in Karachi pitches of years gone by. The hosts have won the toss and will bat, it's all setup nicely for a good encounter.

OUT! Bowled. Shaheen Afridi to Lahiru Kumara. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. That will end the innings. Shaheen goes back to aiming at top of off stump and hits his target. Sri Lanka are all out for 271 but they have got a very handy lead of 80 runs. Dinesh Chandimal was the stand-out batsmen with 74 while Dilruwan Perera played a gem for his 48. With the new ball nipping around and the light slowly fading this will be a tricky period for the openers. A good start for Pakistan is crucial.

APPEAL! Shaheen Afridi to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. An excited Shaheen begs his captain to take the review. Azhar gives in even though it doesn't look too convincing. Hit high on the back thigh with ball-tracking showing that the ball would be clipping the top of the stumps.

OUT! Caught. Haris Sohail to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to backward point, by Khan. The part-timer has broken through with tea just around the corner. Pakistan were starting to get frustrated with runs flowing and too many loose deliveries and then the wicket comes from an unlikely source. Not the greatest ball either, Chandimal's eyes lit up, yet he slapped it straight to point. A hundred was there for the taking.

Plenty of wickets fell yesterday as both the spinners and seamers found something in the surface. Pakistan's total of 191 didn't look great but the three late scalps they took late on has brought them back into the game. A couple more this morning and they will be well and truly on top. Lots of work for the experienced Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal to do and Sri Lanka will be backing both of them to score big. This morning session is going to be crucial.

Azhar Ali is unbeaten on 57 which is a welcome return to form. They are 315 runs ahead and Sri Lankan have a mountain to climb with two days left in the contest. They can take heart though that the track is very good for batting and they will need to show some steely resolve to not lose this match. Join us again tomorrow.

OUT! L.B.W. Naseem Shah to Vishwa Fernando. Half volley, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to. The morning has barely begun but Pakistan have already wrapped up the Test match. Three wickets in as many overs with two for Naseem Shah which takes him to five overall. The youngest player to ever take that many in a Test. Full and straight did the trick for him with Vishwa not wanting to get in line against the extreme pace.A brilliant victory for Pakistan back on home soil and they deserved it after fighting back from their below-par effort with the bat on day one. To come back from a first innings deficit and win by such a margin is outstanding. Credit has to go to their batsmen in the second innings and then the bowlers to wrap up the match in style. Sri Lanka will be hurting after not being able to make their lead count but the one shining light was a maiden ton for Oshada Fernando who looks like a good find for them.That is the series wrapped up and it has been a very enjoyable one. Hopefully Pakistan fans have a lot more opportunity to see cricket back home in the future.

OUT! Caught. Naseem Shah to Lasith Embuldeniya. Short, down leg side ducked Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. It's day 5 and it is likely that there is going to only be one result. Pakistan have taken full control of this match in the last couple of days and with only three more wickets remaining they are well on their way to a historic Test win. Most of the work yesterday was done by the impressive Naseem Shah and he will eyeing up a maiden Test five-wicket haul. For Sri Lanka they have to hope Oshada Fernando can continue his fantastic performance and hopefully pull off something magical.The dream start. No looseners from Naseem as he is right on the money with a sharp bouncer. Embuldeniya gets himself into an awful tangle and feathers a glove to the keeper. It needed the review but Pakistan got the result they wanted. Hat-trick ball coming up.

Pakistan are just able to sneak in another over before stumps and one ball was all they needed. Perera drawn into feeling at a ball he could easily have left. Naseem Shah's extra pace will do that to a lot of batsmen over the years. Oshada Fernando remains unbeaten on 102 and Sri Lanka need another 264 runs to win. Pakistan are closing in on a very emotional series victory in their first series on home soil since 2009. Join us tomorrow.
