Pakistan vs. Sri Lanka, second test, day three Live Cricket Scores And Updates: Despite Pakistan batsman Agha Salman scoring a valiant 62 on Day 2, spinner Ramesh Mendis claimed three wickets to put Sri Lanka in control of the second Test on Monday. Tourists Pakistan, who are now ahead of Sri Lanka by a score of 1-0 in the two-game series, finished day two at 191-7. Salman held off the bowling onslaught with his first Test fifty before succumbing to left-arm spin from Prabath Jayasuriya in the waning stages of play before stumps were called. Salman was caught at slip thanks to a drifter that Jayasuriya threw at the right-handed batsman.

On day three, he anticipates the lower order to start firing. Salman added, “It’s cricket, and it happens. The way the partnership was going, we wanted to see out the day and come back tomorrow to start afresh. He said, “Disappointed, but we still have enough batters who can take advantage of the circumstance and add to the total.” In real-time.
