    Sri Lanka have won the toss and will bat first

    Two changes for Sri Lanka. Lahiru Gamage in for Lakshan Sandakan and Sadeera Samarawickrama is making his debut, in for the injured Lahiru Thirimanne.

    For Pakistan, Wahab Riaz is in for Hasan Ali

    Good swing for Amir on the first 2 balls.

    Lets hope they get a few wickets with the new ball

    What an over first up by Amir... deliveries like that make you love his bowling.

    But its all useless if he doesn't get wickets.

    Bowlers are struggling. SL hitting boundaries at will.

    Should have selected Asghar.

    We're dominated from the get go. Seems like we've lost this test match with the toss, and now the series, boys time to move on...

    I don't know why this Abbas looks so ordinary to me. Wicket to wicket type of bowler, nothing special.

    SL has a plan, specially against Yasir. They're hitting boundaries is his every over.

    I reckon they're taking risk against him, hitting a boundary and playing 5 dots wouldn't put pressure on any bowler. Not to mention, he's spinning big today.

    After that 2nd wicket partnership, Pakistan has pulled things back nicely. Runs are not coming with high frequency now. Should keep a tight leash from here. Bowl as many dot balls as we can, put pressure and they're give wickets.

    This Kusal Mendis guy will cost me the fantasy league. Massive mistake. And now since I have removed Shafiq as well, he will troll me by getting a hundred. :(

    And yes, I removed Amir too, and now he's going to get 10 wickets this game.

    Congrats to Firdous in advance.

    Best friend Asad bowls more these days than Harris Sohail who's a genuine part time bowler.
