Amir ruled out of Sri Lanka ODI series

"But when six of the top seven batsmen all witness the same thing, there has to be some action".

Pakistan still have plenty of work to do to if they are to level their two-Test series with Sri Lanka after the tourists racked up 482 on day two thanks to Dimuth Karunaratne's brilliant 196.

"You have no idea what the pink ball has been doing in my dreams since Monday night", confessed a senior Pakistani batsman wishing anonymity, citing potential threats to his wicket.

The Sri Lankan seamers, expected to make life hard for the Pakistan batsmen under the lights with the pink ball in the final session, turned out to be ineffective.

Chandimal followed his 155 not out in the opening Test with another confident innings, collecting five boundaries as the Sri Lankan pair blunted Pakistan's bowling attack.

"This is not the first time; Pakistan has lost on many occasions, chasing a meagre target to bag victory", he said, adding that the team would come back to the Dubai Test match.

The match is also the first day night test played by Sri Lanka.

Karunaratne continued to make Pakistan suffer with Amir departing for a scan after bowling only three overs, working the ball into the leg side with great skill and countering the threat of Yasir as the aggressive Dickwella played his shots at the other end.

As if that was not enough, Karunaratne put on 59 for the sixth wicket with Dilruwan Perera, who scored a polished 58.

At the close of the day, Karunaratne (133 n.o.) and captain Dinesh Chandimal (49) were at the crease, sharing an unbroken stand of 118 for the fourth wicket.

He batted for 381 minutes, hitting 15 boundaries and a six.

Abbas then had Suranga Lakmal for eight to finish with 2-100 while Shah ended the innings by dismissing Nuwan Pradeep for nought. He managed to bowl just three overs in the day.
