Amir ruled out of Sri Lanka ODI series

Rangana Herath took a six-wicket haul as Lanka eked out a narrow 21-run victory in the first match after the first four days saw an even contest between both the teams in the opening Test.

Having lost the first Test last week, the hosts saw Sri Lanka run up 482 on day two, before closing on 0-51 in response.

Pakistan are hosting Sri Lanka in a full series consisting of two Tests, five ODIs and three T20Is. Pakistanhave never lost a Test series in the United Arab Emirates.

How do I View Live Score & Live Streaming of Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 2nd Test? He defused Yasir Shah judiciously again, routinely getting inside the line of the ball to work him towards square leg.

The sequence of events will raise questions about why he wasn't taken for a scan earlier and why he was allowed to bowl at all on the second day. Ironically, video replay showed the ball missing the stumps.

And just as things have started to fall apart for Pakistan, Sri Lanka have picked their game up. Sami Aslam fetched the first boundary of the day when he guided Gamage past the slip and the gully, and in the following over, he stepped down to Dilruwan for his second four. But, debutant Sadeera Samarawickrama scored a promising 38 in his first innings and shared a 68-run stand for the second wicket, taking the score to 131-2. Sri Lankan batting has put Pakistan under submission as their bowlers toiled hard on an unyielding Dubai stadium pitch.

In any event, Wahab collected himself at the tea break, and it was his discipline that helped keep Pakistan in the match through that Amir-less second session.

Aslam finished on 30 off 49 balls, which included three boundaries, while Masood remained undefeated on 15 off 59 deliveries, which included a solitary boundary.

Wahab has looked considerably less incisive than Hasan Ali, who got injured after the first Test in Abu Dhabi, and his ridiculously long 19th over was about the only highlight for him in Dubai apart from Dimuth Karunaratne's dismissal'. Six teams have tried previously, and six teams have failed, Sri Lanka included.
