Sri Lanka bundled out for 96; Pakistan require 317 to level series

Following a questionable decision not to enforce the follow-on, Sri Lanka was bowled out for a meager 96 runs leaving Pakistan a stiff target of 317 runs to level the three match series. 

Wahab Riaz was the pick of the Pakistani attack bagging 4 wickets for 41 runs. Riaz mustered a fiery spell picking up wickets at regular intervals. 

None of the Sri Lankan batsmen were able to settle on a difficult pitch resulting in poor decisions and easy wickets. A late cameo by Niroshan Dikwella who blasted 4 boundaries in quick succession helped Sri Lanka pose an imposing target for Pakistan. 

Pakistan will look to their talented openers and captain to muster a win to level the three match series at one a piece.
