SL vs PAK Live Score, Day 1: Sri Lanka eye speed in WTC Finals chase, Pakistan aim for historic series win – Follow SL vs PAK First Test Live Updates

Sri Lanka advanced to the Pakistan series after two contrasting results in Galle where they first lost to Australia by a wicked turner and then bounced back to hammer the visitors on Monday. Prabhath Jayasuriya returned the match with 12 wickets to hand Australia a mammoth defeat by an innings and 39 runs in the final match.

Jayasuriya, 30, was one of three Sri Lankan players, along with mystery spinner Mahesh Thekshana and all-rounder Kamindu Mendis, who received their first Test cap in the previous match after the team was hit by the Covid outbreak. Kamindu also made a mark in the series-equalling win with his brilliant 61 in a 133-run partnership with Dinesh Chandimal, who scored his maiden Test double century – 206 not out.

Former Pakistan captain Amir Sohail said the visiting batsmen will have to overcome their weakness against left-arm spin to succeed in the two-match series. “Both teams have grown up on spin wickets and have the hang of such pitches. But I believe Pakistan will have to work hard to make their impact and win this series.

The tourists, led by Babar Azam, have bolstered their spin attack with the return of veteran leg-spinner Yasir Shah to the Test squad. Babar himself has been in roaring form with the bat and recently scored 196 against Australia in the team’s home series, which they lost 1-0 in March. Openers Abdullah Shafiq and Imam-ul-Haq are also in the runs and Pakistan are far from a one-man army.

Sri Lanka announced an 18-member squad for the two matches on Thursday with Pathum Nisanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Jeffrey Vandersay and Asitha Fernando returning to the squad after recovering from Covid. Karunaratne admitted that Pakistan will be a tougher opponent than Australia in the two Tests but believes that playing in Gull for the third time in a row will be advantageous for the hosts.

“Pakistan is a strong team. (But) playing three games in a row is good for the team. We know how the situation has been in the last few matches. Pakistan does not have that chance. Big advantage for us. We have to turn it in our favour,” said Karunaratne.
