Pak vs Sri Lanka Test match: Sri Lanka at 227/4 on stumps

Yasir Shah then got Lahiru Thiramanna plumb in front to pick his 150th Test wicket.

Pakistan had the advantage in the first session with leg-spinner Yasir Shah taking 2-38, dismissing left-hander Lahiru Thirimanne for his 150th Test wicket as Sri Lanka finished the morning on 61-3.

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne was 81 not out at tea.

Yasir was the pick of the bowlers with two wickets, while Hasan claimed one.

Seamer Hasan Ali gave Pakistan the breakthrough in a session that featured a paltry two boundaries when Silva misjudged an incoming delivery.

But with a seventh Test century seeming inevitable, Karunaratne set off for a single when on 93 only for Chandimal to stay in his crease.

Speaking during the toss, Sarfraz said captaining Pakistan is a huge honour for him. The match is being played under new rules which were decided by the ICC. Sarfraz Ahmed leading Pakistan squad while Sri Lankan team is headed by Dinesh Chandimal.

He added that Azhar Ali will bat at No. 3 while Asad Shafiq will bat at No. 4.

Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st Test will be played at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi.

But Shah is the quickest spinner to the landmark as both Barnes and Waqar were fast bowlers.

But they will be without their key all-rounder and former captain Angelo Mathews, who has been ruled out of the first Test with a calf strain.

The Test is Pakistan's first since the retirement of legendary batsman Younis Khan and their most successful Test skipper, Misbah-ul-Haq.

Chandimal accepted that the previous series of Sri Lanka was not good as it should be, but he expected that his team will regain its lost form.
