Sri Lanka bat first against Pakistan as Haris Sohail debuts

Sri Lanka were 61-3 off 28.1 overs at lunch.

Chandimal put on a 100-run stand for the 4th wicket with Karunaratne and a 66-run unbeaten stand with Niroshan Dickwella, who remained unbeaten on 42.

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne scored a brilliant 93 before getting run out while their captain Dinesh Chandimal scored 60 runs in the 184 balls he faced.

"We did quite well in the first hour, but lost two wickets after that".

Karunaratne refused to lay the blame for his run out exclusively on his skipper. "Can't say entirely his fault, partly mine too", said Karunaratne, adding, "a total of 350 or 400 would be great".

The 31-year-old dismissed Lahiru Thirimanne leg before for nought in the first session to reach the milestone in his 27th Test match, equalling the mark of illustrious countryman Waqar Younis.

Interpol approves Palestinian membership bid
A page on the Interpol website listed Palestine as a member since 27 September 2017. The Solomon Islands was also voted in as a new member of Interpol.

Karunaratne had a solid opening stand of 34 with Kaushal Silva before paceman Hasan Ali provided Pakistan with the breakthrough. Australia's Sydney Barnes holds the record as the quickest to 150 Test wickets, achieving the figure in his 24th Test at Durban in 1913.

Hasan bowled Silva for 12 as the batsman played on to an inswinging delivery.

Shah then had Thirimanne trapped leg before for a duck and Kusal Mendis caught behind for 10 to leave Sri Lanka in a spot of bother.

After the trophy unveiling, Sri Lankan Captain Dinesh Chandimal expressed that his side has an advantage due to Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan's absence in Pakistan playing XI after their retirement. On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be looking to bounce back from a 3-0 Test series whitewash at the hands of India.

Umpire ian Gould was ill and couldn't take the field with Richard Kettleborough taking his place and Ahsan Raza becoming the TV umpire.
