Pakistan v. Sri Lanka

Pakistan v Sri Lanka Test Series in UAE 2013/2014

Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai: Wednesday 8 January 2014 10:00 (day 5 of 5)

Toss: Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bowl.

Result: Sri Lanka win by 9 wickets

Sri Lanka 2nd innings

End of Over 47 (5 runs)
Bowler: Saeed Ajmal
Sri Lanka: 137-1 (rr 2.91)

46.2
One Run
Ajmal to Sangakkara. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the front foot flick, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run. That is a crushing victory for Sri Lanka, who take a 1-0 lead into the final game of this three Test series. The victory was set up on the first day by a dominating performance from the Sri Lankan seamers. They bowled with excellent discipline in helpful conditions and from that moment on Pakistan were on the back foot. Jayawardene then consolidated with an excellent century on the 2nd day. Sri Lanka would have wrapped up the game with a day to spare but for Misbah's patient vigil but ultimately they could not undo the damage done on the first day. The last Test begins in Sharjah on Wednesday and that has always been traditionally a flat track. Pakistan will be hoping that their bowlers, and in particular, Ajmal can find some form there or they face a series defeat.

Wicket
OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Ajmal to Silva. Quicker length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, hit pad. That was given out on the field and replays show it was clipping leg stump. A small consolation for Pakistan as Sri Lanka will not record their first ever 10 wicket victory over Paksitan. That was an excellent knock from Silva and his third half century in his last three innings. Ajmal did him for speed there.
