Watch PAK vs SL LIVE Cricket Match on Sony LIV

Yasir Shah (6-184 from 55.5 overs) led the way for Pakistan's bowling attack, his fifth five-wicket haul in as many Tests. It will be the first day-night Test that Sri Lanka will be a part of, and they can commemorate it by attaining a historic series win.

The second test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan will be played today at the Dubai global Cricket Stadium.This is the sixth day-night test match to be played with the use of a pink ball.

Pakistan middle-order batsman Azhar Ali has been rested for the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka beginning October 13 in UAE. Karunaratne deserved a double hundred during a marathon nine hour stay at the crease but he was unluckily dismissed, playing onto leg-spinner Yasir Shah just before dinner. Pakistan's joy after ending the mammoth 146-run partnership between Chandimal and centurion Dimuth Karunaratne was shortlived as Niroshan Dickwella's entry only made matters worse. Not only did he score runs but also displayed the elegance that is often a trademark of a left-handed batsman.

Karunaratne's superb innings of 196 came off 405 balls and included 19 boundaries and a six.

Earlier, Lanka got off to a steady start as Kaushal Silva and Karunaratne added 63 runs for the first wicket, frustrating Pakistan bowlers.

The hurricane center said it is "likely that some direct impacts will occur along portions of the coast by midweek". Steward said winds coming out of the Southeast by mid-week will dictate how close Maria comes to North Carolina.

As if that was not enough, Karunaratne put on 59 for the sixth wicket with Dilruwan Perera, who scored a polished 58. Herath's threat won't be driving away one bit, he'll remain the same.

With no other frontline spinner in the side, leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been forced to the bulk of the bowling.

Amir, Mohammad Abbas and Wahab Riaz, who was brought in for ailing young Hasan Ali, seemed to be struggling for swing and bounce.

That leaves Pakistan in a spot of bother to square the series after losing the first Test by 21 runs in Abu Dhabi and, more importantly, save their seven-year unbeaten series record in the United Arab Emirates.
