Pakistan 11 runs from winning in Galle when rains halt the fight against SL
Wet weather in Galle on Wednesday stopped Pakistan from catching up to Sri Lanka’s record score of 342 runs, leaving the tourists just 11 runs away from winning. At the site in Galle, Pakistan was 331 for six with Abdullah Shafique on 154 and Mohammad Nawaz on 12. In 2019, Sri Lanka beat New Zealand by 268 runs in the fourth innings. Prabath Jayasuriya, a left-arm spinner for the home team, has taken four wickets so far. He is about to make history by becoming the first bowler to take five wickets in each of his first two Tests. He took 12 wickets in his first Test.
It was a win against Australia last week at the same place. He got six in each of their two innings. Pakistan started the day with 222 runs and 3 wickets, and Jayasuriya was involved in both of Sri Lanka’s umpire reviews. Mohammad Rizwan’s day got off to a great start when Ramesh Mendis hit him a boundary. He continued to look forward to the rest of the day by hitting singles and twos until Chamara Jayasuriya bowled him out for 40 runs. Rizwan, a wicketkeeper and batsman who used to play for the English county Sussex, couldn’t save himself, even after a review. This is Shafique’s best show so far because he has stayed strong and done a great job as the anchor.
