  • Print

SHARJAH, United Arab Emirates - Sri Lanka lost opening batsman Dimuth Karunaratne early in its second innings as it moved to 19-1 at lunch on the fourth day of the third and final test to lead Pakistan by 106 runs.

Karunaratne (8) chopped Mohammad Talha's short pitched delivery back onto his stumps when he completely mistimed the pull shot off the fast bowler under overcast conditions.

Kaushal Silva was six not out with Kumar Sangakkara unbeatren on five at the break.

Earlier Sunday, Pakistan scored 341 in its first innings, adding a further 50 runs to its overnight score of 291-6 as Rangana Herath (5-125) and fast bowler Shaminda Eranga quickly wrapped up the innings in just over an hour.

Eranga finished with career-best figures of 4-60.

Captain Misbah-ul-Haq, 36 overnight, made 63 off 113 balls and tried to prolong the innings by mostly keeping the strike to himself before he finally holed out in the deep after hitting a four and three sixes off Herath.

Misbah farmed the strike and added 25 runs with Saeed Ajmal, who remained scoreless, after Eranga's twin strike had reduced Pakistan to 300-8.

Eranga struck in his first over when he had Abdul Rehman caught behind before having Talha trapped leg before wicket to surpass his previous career best figures of 4-65 against Australia at Colombo in 2011.

No. 11 batsman Junaid Khan brought the deficit to under 100 runs when he lofted Herath for two big sixes but then couldn't clear Dinesh Chandimal at deep mid-wicket while repeating the same shot to give Herath his fifth wicket of the innings.
