Steadfast Karunaratne gives Sri Lanka edge

Steadfast Karunaratne gives Sri Lanka edge

At the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Saturday, Karunaratne's 196 paved Sri Lanka's way to a mammoth first innings total.

Playing without batting greats Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq for the first time in Abu Dhabi, the inexperienced batsmen saw red in the form of Herath, who stopped them from chasing down a modest 136-run target on a wearing fifth-day pitch with figures of 6 for 43. But after struggling through three overs, during which he looked visibly troubled and at one stage required an ice pack, he went off again.

A statement from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said that the fast bowler underwent MRI scans after complaining about pain in his shin and after undergoing the required medical procedure, he had been advised two to three weeks of complete rest.

According to a report in Cricbuzz, the 25-year-old has been taken for an MRI scan.

Sarfraz Ahmed, the Pakistan skipper, was confident his team staging a comeback.

Amir left the field in the afternoon session due to a shin injury that will prevent the paceman from bowling in the second innings and keep him out of the one-day worldwide series.

It is worth mentioning here that Sri Lanka is leading the two-match Test series 1-0. He bowled well in brief patches, though coaching staff were concerned with his inability to find fuller lengths. We played last season with the pink ball in domestic cricket but not the day and night.

Pakistan will also hope Asad Shafiq and Mohammad Amir lift their performances.

Karunaratne and opening partner Kaushal Silva (27) provided a solid platform for Sri Lanka with a 63-run stand before Pakistan hit back with three wickets in quick succession. And he has, since his return from a five-year ban, made a substantial contribution to the 50-over side, taking 30 wickets in 21 ODIs.
