HIGHLIGHTS

  • Babar Azam also completed 10,000 runs in international cricket
  • Sri Lanka are leading by 40 runs in their second innings
  • Babar Azam and Naseem Shah put on 70 runs for the 10th wicket

Babar Azam scored his seventh Test century to make it even-stevens for Pakistan and Sri Lanka in the ongoing opening Test at the Galle International Stadium.

After bowling the hosts out for 222 in the first innings, Pakistan found themselves in early trouble following the dismissals of Abdullah Shafique and Imam-ul-Haq.

At Stumps on Day 1, Babar was unbeaten on one run along with Azhar Ali as his partner. On the second day, the visitors were pushed on the backfoot after being reduced to 85 for seven in 38.4 overs.

From there on, Babar went on to score 119 runs off 244 balls with the help of 11 fours and two sixes. Mohammad Rizwan scored 19 runs before Ramesh Mendis accounted for his prized scalp.

Yasir Shah and Hasan Ali scored 18 and 17 runs respectively and lent Babar support. After they got out, Naseem Shah and Babar stitched together a 70-run partnership for the 10th wicket. Pakistan were bowled out for 218, leaving Sri Lanka with a lead of four runs.

Prabath Jayasuriya, who was exceptional against Australia in the second Test, picked up a five-wicket haul and showed his class. Maheesh Theekshana and Mendis picked up two wickets apiece.

In their second innings, Sri Lanka have scored 36 runs from 11.5 overs. Mohammad Nawaz got the prized wicket of opposition skipper, Dimuth Karunaratne, who scored 16 off 29 with two fours.

Oshada Fernando and night-watchman Kasun Rajitha are the overnight batters for the home team. Shaheen Afridi and Agha Salman failed to make a breakthrough.
