The second test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka has entered in a tight situation. On the second day, Pakistan were all out on 170 in reply of Sri Lanka’s 279. Although Mohammad Asif gave Pakistan a sharp edge by taking 6 wickets for 44 runs in his 23 overs, he was unable to get support from other bowlers. Inzamam was confident to get 100 plus runs lead in first innings but Pakistani batsmen yet again repeated their tubmling act. This time an opening pair of Akmal-Farhat was introduced which did a 57 runs partnership. At lunch on day 2, Pakistan were 73 for 2 and ended with 170 all out later in the day.

In Sri Lankan second innings Asif again came to rescue, this time he got support by the other medium pacer, Abdul Razaak. Sri Lanka were all out for 73 in 24.5 overs. Mohammad Asif bowled his career best 11 wickets for 71 runs in both innings of the match. Abdul Razzak took 4 wickets in the second innings.

Pakistan has got a target of 183 runs to win this test match.
