A disappointing end to Pakistan's day there. The openers had got their team off to an ideal start but some excellent fielding by the Sri Lankan captain ensured the visitors' brief stint with the ball today didn't go fruitless. The pitch is still an excellent one for batting though, and the in-form Younis, who's in next, will look to take full advantage. Pakistan still need a further 297 to avoid the follow-on but if the pitch plays the way it did today, they'll bank on getting there without too much difficulty. That's all for now though, join us tomorrow to see who wins the battle of the bats in the first innings. Until then, it's goodbye from Siddhartha Talya on the commentary and Binoy George from the scoring desk. Adios!

As a result of the firing in Lahore where several Sri Lankan players were injured, the match, and therefore the tour, has been called off. You can track developments in our breaking news blog

Saad: "I think Pakistan finally has some decent options for the opener's spot for the first time since the mass exodus to the ICL now that Khurram Manzoor and Nasir Jamshed have surfaced with good form and techinque."
