Today is the fifth and final day of the first ever Sri Lanka Pakistan day/night Test, being played in Abu Dhabi.

Chasing a target of 317 to win the Test and level the series, the Pakistanis were on 198 for 5 at stumps on day 4 yesterday.

An unbroken partnership of 146 between Asad Shafiq and Sarfraz Ahmed have set the tone in favour of Pakistan.

By stumps, Shafiq had cruised to 86 off 141 balls. Sarfraz was on 57 off 113.

They had each earlier given chances off successive balls, to Mendis at short leg, but the catches - both very difficult - were grassed.

But that was when Shafiq was batting on 26, and Sarfraz on 22. No one imagined then, that the missed opportunities would cost Sri Lanka so much.
