In a brilliant second innings featuring batting prowess and intelligent bowling, Sri Lanka posed a formidable 482 on the back of Dimuth Karunaratne’s 197. Yasir Shah was the pick of the Pakistani attack bagging 6 of the Lankan wickets.

Well constructed knocks by Dinesh Chandimal and Niroshan Dickwella aided Sri Lanka as they bludgeoned a tired Pakistan outfit.  

Sri Lanka’s tail clung on for 12.2 overs after dinner, but Pakistan allowed them only 21 further runs, before claiming the three final wickets, to bring Sri Lanka’s innings to a close at 482. As has been the case through this Test, Yasir Shah was Pakistan’s primary weapon.

When he had No. 10 Lahiru Gamage stumped, he became the first spinner in Test history to register five-wicket hauls in five consecutive Tests. He would have Nuwan Pradeep caught at gully as well, to finish with 6 for 184 from 55.5 overs in total.
For Sri Lanka, Rangana Herath produced his usual lower-order fun, employing several reverse sweeps to moderate effect, and dusting off his trademark swivel-pull to the quick bowlers. He finished on 27 not out, off 72 balls. Nos. 8, 9 and 10 did not make it out of single figures.
