Another day of delays and interruptions due to poor weather conditions allowed only 34.2 overs of play on the second day of the first unofficial Test between Sri Lanka A and Pakistan A at the Asgiriya Stadium in Kandy.
Play did not get underway till 2.15pm, whereupon Sri Lanka A added 51 runs to their overnight 35 for 1, before suffering the all-too-familiar middle-order collapse. Within a matter of 14 minutes and 13 balls Sri Lanka A lost the wickets of Ian Daniel, Michael Vandort and Russel Arnold to slide to 89 for 4.
The captain, Jehan Mubarak, was in need of a big innings, and he and Malintha Gajanayake survived the next half-hour against some testing bowling, before the light was offered to the batsmen, soon after Gajanayake had survived a confident lbw shout against Asif.
Weather permitting the match is scheduled to resume tomorrow at 10 a.m.
