Uncapped Imam-ul-Haq in Pakistan squad for Sri Lanka ODIs

Uncapped Imam-ul-Haq in Pakistan squad for Sri Lanka ODIs”

Paceman Wahab Riaz took three wickets in a fiery spell but Sri Lanka were still in the driving seat after the third day of the second day-night Test in Dubai on Sunday.

Dilruwan went on to score 58 off 76 balls, which included seven boundaries, before Sri Lanka began to lose wickets in a hurry.

Pakistan have never lost a Test series in the UAE since making it their adopted home in 2010. Now, team Pakistan needs to secure the series by winning the match and to ensure it, they need to make a long partnership but day by day, the pitch nature will change and bowlers would get favour. That said, it will be interesting to see if Sri Lanka face any difficulties in adapting to the nuances of a day-night Test. He defused Yasir Shah judiciously again, routinely getting inside the line of the ball to work him towards square leg. Having failed to score off 14 of the 17 balls Wahab bowled to him after he got to 190, Karunaratne poked at a short delivery that came back slightly off the seam.

Digging a bit shows that these images are also correlated with a device referred to as "google-home-tiny" in the app's code. According to Walmart's listing, the Google Home Mini will be available October 19.

And just as things have started to fall apart for Pakistan, Sri Lanka have picked their game up. Ironically, video replay showed the ball missing the stumps.

He arrived with the team for the second day and came on to bowl in the 11th over of the afternoon.

Angelo Mathews missed the first Test, has now been ruled out of the second in spite of his injury.

But it also said that "getting to a zero emissions future will require more than just battery-electric technology". The company also pledged to start producing hydrogen fuel cell vehicles for commercial or military use in 2020.

All these individual pieces have combined to form a nightmare for Pakistan where the fast bowlers look far from effective, one spinner bowls 50 overs or more and part-timers bowl far too many overs. Karunaratne appeared exhausted after facing 405 balls and hitting 19 boundaries and a six.

Test batsman Dhananjaya De Silva will lead a 16-man Sri Lanka A squad on the tour of West Indies starting next week. "Amir will not bowl in the ongoing Test match at the Dubai Cricket Stadium but would be available to bat". Sami Aslam and Shan Masood are still in field for the team.

Moreover, Sadeera's inclusion can be a blessing in disguise for Sri Lanka as Lahiru Thirimanne has not done so well in the recent past.
