    Sri Lanka reach 120-2 at lunch in first test

    KARACHI: Kumar Sangakkara and Malinda Warnapura hit half-centuries to help Sri Lanka reach 120-2 by lunch on the opening day of the first Test against Pakistan here on Saturday.

    Sangakkara was unbeaten at the break on 51 with skipper Mahela Jayawardene on five not out after Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat on a flat pitch.

    Warnapura earlier steadied the innings with a brisk 48-ball 59 to help his team recover from the early loss of debutant opener Tharanga Paranavitana, who was dismissed for a first-ball duck.

    Pakistan''s frontline paceman Umar Gul struck with the fourth ball of the innings when he forced left-hander Paranavitana to edge into the slip where Misbah-ul-Haq took a smart catch.

    Warnapura and Sangakkara added 90 for the second wicket before first-change Yasir Arafat provided the breakthrough. Warnapura, who hit nine boundaries, edged Arafat to Haq who held a low catch in the slip.

    The 32,000-seater National Stadium wore a deserted look as policemen outnumbered the spectators in the first session of the Test, the first in 14 months that Pakistan has participated in.

    Sri Lanka reach 248-3 at tea in Karachi test

    KARACHI: The Sri Lankan top order indulged themselves to reach 248 for 3 by tea on the opening day in first test against Pakistan here at National Stadium on Saturday.

    Default Pak-Sri Lanka Test Series: Second day’s play under


    Pak-Sri Lanka Test Series: Second day’s play underway

    KARACHI: The second day’s play of the first test of Pak- Sri Lanka test series is in progress at the National Stadium here.

    Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s all claims of preparing a sporting wicket fell flat at he end of the first day play yesterday, as Pakistan team was caught in its cobwebs. The visiting team batsmen Jayawardene and Samaraveera’s undefeated centuries enabled Sri Lanka to pile up a huge total of 406 runs for the loss of three wickets, when the bell was drawn on first day. Jayawardene made record-breaking century emerging as the 10th batman of the world, who scored century against all test playing countries.

    Pakistan defence strategy of fielding seven batmen and four specialist bowlers on a batting wicket threw the host team on the back foot on the very first day.

    At the end of the first day Samaraveera scored 130 on 155 balls, while the captain Mahela Jayawardene made 136 runs and both of them were on the crease. The two batmen alone piled up 229 runs in their 4th wicket partnership.

    Default Sri Lanka amass 644 against Pakistan in first Test


    Sri Lanka amass 644 against Pakistan in first Test

    KARACHI: Mahela Jayawardene struck his first double-century outside Sri Lanka - his fifth overall - while Thilan Samaraweera went past 200 for the first time in his Test career to put the visitors in a rock solid position in the first Test.

    They further strengthened their position by dismissing Salman Butt shortly before stumps on the second day here at the National Stadium while debutant opener Khurram Manzoor (18) and captain Younis Khan (0) were still at the crease.

    The two batsmen set a Test record for the fourth wicket with a 437-run stand against Pakistan, eclipsing the previous record of 411 runs set by England''s Peter May and Colin Cowdrey against the West Indies at Birmingham in 1957.

    Jayawardene ended on 240 and Samaraweera 231 and both fell in successive overs before tea on the second day,

    Later, Sri Lanka declared their first innings at 644-7, their best ever total in a Test against Pakistan in Test.

    Tillakaratne Dilshan was out in the last over before tea for nought, leaving Prasanna Jayawardene unbeaten without scoring at the break.

    The overnight pair of Jayawardene and Samaraweera batted through all but two overs in the first two sessions before Pakistani bowlers were rewarded with three wickets for an unchanged score of 614.

    Jayawardene fell when he miscued a sweep shot off spinner Shoaib Malik and was caught one-handed by diving wicket-keeper Kamran Akmal behind the stumps.

    The Sri Lankan skipper hit 32 boundaries during his 531-minute stay at the crease. Samaraweera was bowled by leg-spinner Danish Kaneria after hitting 31 boundaries during his 457-minute innings.

    Resuming at 406-3, the pair also beat Sri Lanka''s previous best fourth-wicket stand in all Test cricket of 240, set by Asanka Gurusinha and Arjuna Ranatunga against Pakistan in Colombo in 1986.

    They then took Sri Lanka past their highest Test total against Pakistan, overhauling the 528 they scored at Lahore in 2002. Samaraweera also improved his previous highest Test score of 142 against England at Colombo in 2003.

    Pakistan may loose if they loose early wickets, but can trust Younis
