Subject : Chandimal scores ton as Sri Lanka frustrate Pakistan bowling
Skipper Dinesh Chandimal scored a sure-footed hundred to keep Sri Lanka’s resistance strong in the face of Pakistan’s bowling in the opening session on the second day of the first Test at Abu Dhabi on Friday. Pacer Hasan Ali dismissed Dickwella for 83 earlier to finally end a longstanding fourth-wicket partnership, as Sri Lanka batsmen continued to frustrate Pakistan bowling on another slow day of play. Sri Lanka were 295-5 after Dickwella departed, as Pakistan looked to make use of some green patches to build pressure, without much result.

Hasan Ali in action during the Test

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne fell seven runs short of a deserved century as he anchored Sri Lanka´s fightback on the opening day of the Test on Thursday. The left-hander was run out for 93 but helped his team recover from a precarious 61-3 to reach 227-4 at close after Sri Lanka won the toss and batted on a greenish Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch. Karunaratne added an invaluable 100-run partnership with skipper Dinesh Chandimal, as Pakistan failed to break through with the second new ball. Chandimal was given leg before to Yasir Shah on 42, a decision which was overturned on review. Shah returned figures of 2-59 at the end of day’s play but didn´t get much turn from the pitch while seamer Hasan Ali took 1-58.
