Mathews, Silva consolidate Sri Lanka's lead
Kaushal Silva's 80 and 77 from Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews helped Sri Lanka finish the second day of the second Test with a lead of 166 runs.
The hosts will, however, be disappointed with a few of their dismissals on the day, which held them back from a more dominating performance.
For Pakistan, Yasir Shah was the best bowler, picking up 5 for 95 - his second, successive Test five-for - and crossing a few personal milestones on the way.
Mathews was the common thread between two partnerships that stabilised Sri Lanka after wobbles had threatened to erode the advantage of a lead.
