Pakistan fight but SL in control
Younus Khan with 62 and Misbah Ul Haq with 53 came to the rescue with a steadying partnership as Pakistan appeared to be heading for a heavy defeat in the second Test against Sri Lanka in Dubai.
At stumps on the third day, Pakistan managed to reach 132 for three wickets, still trailing their opponents by 91 runs, with Younus and Misbah unbeaten at the crease.
Resuming on 318 for four, Sri Lanka were all out for 388 in their first innings in the morning, losing their last six wickets for 68 runs.
Pakistan's second innings started abysmally as left-arm spinner Rangana Herath dismissed opener Ahmed Shehzad at the stroke of lunch and paceman Nuwan Pradeep struck twice early in the afternoon to reduce them to 19 for three.
