Pakistan displayed a dominant performance in the second Test against Sri Lanka, with an impressive batting partnership and a superb bowling display. Leading the series 1-0 after their victory in the first Test, the Men in Green are looking to extend their lead in the two-match series.
A Record-breaking Batting Display
In a remarkable display of aggressive batting, Pakistan’s Babar Azam-led side scored a century in just 100 balls, making it the fastest hundred by a Pakistani team in the 21st century.
Naseem Shah and Abrar Ahmed Shine
The national team’s bowlers, Naseem Shah and Abrar Ahmed, delivered an outstanding performance, bundling out the home side for a mere 166 runs.
The standout feature of the match was the outstanding partnership between Abdullah Shafique and Shan Masood, who put up a stunning 108-run partnership before Shan was dismissed for 51 runs off 47 balls. Abdullah, currently batting on 71, is poised to make a big score and provide Pakistan with a substantial lead in the first innings.
Series Lead and Maiden Double-century
Having won the first Test by four wickets at Galle, Pakistan is determined to maintain its winning streak, with Saud Shakeel having scored his maiden double-century in the previous match.
