    Less than half an hour to go. A must win game for Pakistan. Lose this one and the series belongs to Sri Lanka.
    Coming back after his one match ban will be the captain Misbah to try and get this team to show a little bit of fight.

    Misbah loses the toss. Sri Lanka will have a bowl first.
    Big blow as Guls ankle injury is confirmed. Aizaz Cheema comes in as his replacement. Ayub drops to the bench allowing Misbah back in.

    Openers walk in to the middle. Big test for these 2 after a miserable first game. Need a positive start.

    A bit of movement for the bowler immediately.

    Single taken off the last ball of the over. A bit hesitant. Still a bit edgy from the last game. Need to calm the nerves

    Single for Hafeez and that brings Taufeeq Umar on strike for his first ball

    Off the mark too with a single. 3/0 after 2 overs. So far Nothing to show that this pitch will cause much problems for the batsmen.

    Taufeeq a little more aggressive this morning. Taking a few steps and then playing an aggressive shot. Positive intent.

    Bit of a slash from Taufeeq, misses the ball. No movement of the feet at all

    Just a couple to Taufeeq in that over off the last ball. Good, probing over from Kalu. Taufeeq moves in to double figures now

    Good start from Pradeep, causing a few problems already for Hafeez

    Both batsmen have faced the same amount of delevieries. Taufeeq is on 15 and Hafeez on 3

    Hafeez a little bogged down at the moment. Looking to grind out an innings

    Edged by Hafeez but played that's played with soft hands and falls well short of 2nd slip.
