Scorecard

Sri Lanka A offspinner Sachithra Senanayake picked up the five Pakistan A wickets to fall on the fourth and final day of the drawn first unofficial Test in Galle.

Pakistan A had started strongly, with Test batsman Khurram Manzoor and Under-19 World Cup captain Azeem Ghumman adding 91 runs. Senanayake dismissed the duo in successive overs, setting off a mini-collapse and suddenly, Pakistan A were stuttering at 124 for 5. However, Aamer Sajjad and wicketkeeper Naeem Anjum ensured there were no further wobbles, sharing an unbroken 98-run partnership. After both batsmen reached their half-centuries, the match was called off. Senanayake finished with 5 for 40, his 17th first-class five-wicket haul.

Sri Lanka A declared their innings once captain Thilina Kandamby completed his 12th first-class century. After play over the first three days was marred by rain - only 87 overs were bowled - 70 overs were possible on the last day.

The second and final unofficial Test starts in Hambantota from September 15.
