Default 1st test Pak vs SL Day 2

Pakistan is in commanding position in 1st test match against Sri Lanka after day two.
Score
Pakistan 327 for 4 (Younis 136, Misbah 105*) Sri Lanka 204 Pak lead by 123 runs.
The two times Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan had batted together against Sri Lanka before, they had added 130 and 100. Today, they improved that stat further with a 218-run stand for the fourth wicket that flattened Sri Lanka after an encouraging start, and gave Pakistan a solid first-innings lead. The partnership came at a crucial juncture when the game was in the balance and ensured Pakistan took a firm grip of the Abu Dhabi Test. During its course, Younis scored his 23rd century - and sixth against Sri Lanka - while Misbah, unbeaten at the end of the second day, crossed the 100-mark for the fifth time in Tests.

Default 1st Test Pak vs SL Day 3

Sri Lanka 204 and 186/4 (Silva 81, Sangakkara 55, Junaid 2-46) Pakistan 383
SL lead by seven runs
Bilawal Bhatti and Junaid Khan picked up three wickets late on the third day to put Pakistan in a dominant position at stumps on third day despite Sri Lanka being able to erase the first-innings deficit. Bhatti removed the experienced duo of Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene in successive deliveries, while Junaid dismissed the set Kaushal Silva off the last ball of the day to put a win within sights.
A 99-run second-wicket stand between Sangakkara and Silva was reviving memories of Sri Lanka's second-innings fightback two years ago when a double-century from Sangakkara helped them wipe off the 314-run deficit and save the Test. It was a similar determined response from Sri Lanka after conceding a 179-rub lead. Sangakkara was unfazed and Silva was accumulating runs at his own pace,both going past their half-centuries.
But after late strike from Junaid and Bhatti Sri lanka are now 7 runs ahead with 6 wickets.

Default 1st Test Pak vs SL Day 4

Sri Lanka 204 and 420/5 (Mathews 116*, Chandimal 89) Pakistan 383 SL lead by 241 runs.
Angelo Mathews scored a career-best 116 to fashion a remarkable turnaround for Sri Lanka in the Abu Dhabi Test after they had conceded a 179-run lead to Pakistan in the first innings. He added 138 for the fifth wicket with Dinesh Chandimal, who missed out on his third Test century, and a further unbeaten 96 with Prasanna Jayawardene to transform a delicate situation on the fourth morning into, possibly, a match-winning one. Only thrice before have Pakistan been able to chase down a target in excess of 241, Sri Lanka's current lead.
The Pakistan bowlers managed a solitary wicket in the entire day and, for most parts, appeared innocuous with the pitch hardly providing assistance to seamers or spinners. Saeed Ajmal's figures of 42-10-96-0 - the most overs he has bowled without picking up a wicket - highlighted the bowlers' misery.

Default 1st Test Pak vs SL

Sri Lanka 204 (Mathews 91, Junaid 5-58) and 480/5 dec (Mathews 157*) Pakistan383 (Younis 136, Misbah 135) and 158/2 (Hafeez 80*, Shehzad 55)
Result Match is drawn.
Mohammad Hafeez made the most of his good batting form, and a benign pitch, to score a fluent half-century that helped Pakistan earn a comfortable draw in Abu Dhabi after being set a target of 302 from 67 overs. His 101-run stand with Ahmed Shehzad, in 31 overs, effectively closed the door on Sri Lanka after Suranga Lakmal had provided an early breakthrough. Hafeez was unbeaten on 80 when the teams decided to shake hands, right at the start of the mandatory overs.
Angelo Mathews was declared as the man of the match for his excellent performance in both innings as he scored 91 and 157 in 1st and 2nd innings respectively.

Default 2nd Test Pak vs SL Day 1

Sri Lanka 57/1 Pakistan165 (Manzoor 73, Herath 3-26) trail by 108 runs.
Pakistan opener Manzoor batted with good judgement in the middle of a largely empty stadium but there were jitters at the other end. They made it to lunch on 57 for 1 only because two edges were dropped - one chance causing Mahela Jayawardene to split his webbing and go off the field for the day - and several seaming deliveries beat the outside edge. The crash began early in the second session, though: Pakistan slumped from 78 for 1 to 165 all out, with the Sri Lankan quicks claiming the first seven wickets.
Perhaps Mathews had decided to bowl because Pakistan had been routed for 99 the last two times they batted first in Dubai, or because the team batting second had won three out of five Tests at the venue. After Sri Lanka's bowlers had vindicated his decision, his batsmen began to do so as well. With Pakistan's quicks not seaming the ball as much at the start, Sri Lanka's batsman added 57/1 and claimed strong position over match.

Default 2nd test Pak vs SL Day 2

SL 318/4 (Mahela 106*, Silva 95) Pak 165 (Manzoor 73, Herath 3-26)
SL lead by 153 runs.
Mahela Jayawardene and Kaushal Silva did not put on a show - there weren't many people at the stadium to entertain anyway - but their exercise in restraint, self-preservation and gradual accumulation was exactly what Sri Lanka needed to consolidate the advantage earned by their fast bowlers on the first day. Silva fell five short of a maiden century and Jayawardene left his sublime shots on the shelf until the final session, when he was his usual hard-to-contain self and reached his first hundred in ten Tests to give Sri Lanka a strong chance of a series lead.
Pakistan's fast bowlers did not err too much in their line and length, but the sizeable seam movement that had played a prominent role in undoing their batsmen was nowhere to be seen on the second day. Saeed Ajmal operated with parsimony,but Pakistan needed incisiveness to defend their total of 165, and his spell of 27-9-45-0 extended his wicket drought to 76 overs.

Default 2nd Test Pak vs SL Day 3

Pakistan165 (Manzoor 73, Pradeep 3-62, Herath 3-26) and 132/3 (Younis 62*, Misbah 53*) Sri Lanka 388 (Mahela 129, Silva 95) Pak trail by 91 runs.
Sri Lanka were a wicket away from breaking Pakistan after lunch on the third day of the second Test in Dubai, but they could not take it. Having conceded a first-innings lead of 223, and then slumped to 19 for 3 in the second, Pakistan were on the brink. Their old guard dragged them back from it. Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq batted with focus and not flash to whittle the deficit below 100 but because of the spectacular top-order failure their job was far from done. Their 113-run association that spanned 41.1 overs, but Sri Lanka were still a wicket away from breaking Pakistan.Lanka's position of comfort in this match was largely due to Mahela's century, during the course of which he passed Steve Waugh to move to No. 8 on the list of highest run-scorersin Tests. He added only 23 to his overnight score but ensured his team's strong grip over match.

Default Pak vs SL 2nd Test

SL 388 (Mahela 129, Junaid 3-102) and 137/1 (Karunaratne 62*) Pak 165 (Manzoor 73, Herath 3-26) and 359 (Misbah 97, Lakmal 4-78)
SL win by 9 wickets.It had rained for most of the night in Dubai and the floodlights were switched on to brighten a gloomy morning, but there were no alarms for Sri Lanka once play began on time on the fifth day. They won this Test of attrition by bowling clinically to polish off the Pakistan tail, and then their openers guarded against any slip-ups in a chase of 137 by playing watchfully and taking liberties only after the contest had been killed. The weather was Sri Lanka's only concern, as clouds gathered and dispersed through the day, but there was not a drop of rain and the winning runs were scored in sunshine.
The 9-wicket victory vindicated Angelo Mathews' unprecedented decision at the toss - he was the only captain to want to bowl first in six Tests at this venue. It also added weight to the argument for batting second in Dubai: teams that did so have won four out of six.
