Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford has said all-rounder Thisara Perera could establish himself in the Test side, if he can replicate the bowling form he showed in Saturday's ODI against Pakistan with more consistency.

If it was Perera's 6 for 44 that won the match for Sri Lanka, it was Dilshan's unbeaten 119 off 139 balls that set up the total that allowed Perera to apply pressure on Pakistan, which Ford described as a well-paced innings.

Sri Lanka had lost the first ODI by six wickets, after scoring 135 for 8 in the rain-affected, shortened game.

Following that performance, Ford said, Saturday's show was commendable.
