Pakistan claw back

Having suffered two days of batting horror,Pakistan have done well by curtailing the Sri Lankan's to 240.

In fact they have established some sort of control over the second test, by overhauling Sri Lanka's lead. They have done themselves proud by taking a 28 runs lead for the loss of 1 wicket.

Undoubtedly a superb debut century by Fawad Alam went a long way in helping Pakistan gain ascendancy.

By their stellar batting Pakistan have given themselves a chance to equalise the equation. If Pakistan bat in the same vein tomorrow, they will surely put the fragile Sri Lankan batting under pressure.

Remember, the Sri Lankan batsmen have done nothing much in the last three innings. So it stands to reason that they will crumble under the pressure of chasing a huge score on a 5 th pitch.

Now all that Pakistan have to do is to bat well and score at a fast clip.

Will that happen?

If Pakistan get a 300+ lead, they are in a good position to square the series.

Yes a lead of say 300 will set up the match.
