Younus Khan Fails in 100th Test as Sri Lanka Take Control
Young off-spinner Tharindu Kaushal grabbed five wickets as Sri Lanka bundled out Pakistan for 138 on the opening day of the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo yesterday.
Seamer Dhammika Prasad chipped in with three wickets as the tourists collapsed in 42.5 overs by tea after skipper Misbah-ul Haq elected to bat on a fresh, bouncy pitch at the P. Sara Oval.
Sri Lanka, looking for a series-levelling win after losing the first Test in Galle by 10 wickets, were 70 for one at stumps and well set to build a big first innings lead.
Kumar Sangakkara was unbeaten on 18 and Kaushal Silva was on 21 after Dimuth Karunaratne was caught behind for 28 while trying to slash a wide ball from seamer Junaid Khan.
