Inept team management needs better planning to win second Test

The Sri Lankan seamers, expected to make life hard for the Pakistan batsmen under the lights with the pink ball in the final session, turned out to be ineffective.

Dimuth Karunarathne's fighting 196 lifted Sri Lanka's spirits on Day Two of the second Test at Dubai. Pakistanhave never lost a Test series in the United Arab Emirates.

These all are some terms of the Pakistan vs Sri Lanka match which is maintain its stranglehold. They have won five and drawn four in the UAE since the 2009 terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus forced them to play home matches outside of Pakistan. That said, it will be interesting to see if Sri Lanka face any difficulties in adapting to the nuances of a day-night Test. Another sweep and a single off Dilruwarn brought up the fifty-run partnership just minutes the stumps but Sri Lanka wasted a chance to finally make a breakthrough.

He arrived with the team for the second day and came on to bowl in the 11th over of the afternoon. This is the same Sri Lankan side that lost 9-0 to India across formats but Dinesh Chandimal, in his first Test series as full-time captain, has whipped the team into shape.

It was not surprising, although, it achieved the win. Herath's threat won't be dissipating one bit, he'll remain the same.

It will be the terms with the post-Mis-You era, but there's no way around it. We played last season with the pink ball in domestic cricket but not the day and night.

Ali - the backbone of Pakistan's batting line-up - has become the eighth batsman to complete 5,000 runs in Test matches. The same XI could take the field in Dubai, hopefully, it can have a record intact.

That leaves Pakistan, already struggling with the ball in this Test, a bowler short going ahead - with only one specialist spinner and with Wahab Riaz enduring his own problems at one stage with his run-up.

Angelo Mathews missed the first Test, has now been ruled out of the second in spite of his injury.
