Zeenews Sports Bureau
Colombo: Bad news. Rain has once again interrupted the proceedings for the time being.
Pakistan declared their innings after scoring 551 runs. In reply Sri Lanka lost Paranavitana (0) in the fourth over after which Dilshan and Sangakkara have added 70 runs for the third wicket.
Pakistan cross 500-run mark and there is no declaration yet. Misbah (45*) and Adnan Akmal (2*) are at the crease.
The weather seems to be all right at Colombo after the game was interrupted due to rain on the second day where only 44.2 overs were bowled.
It was an early breakthrough for Pakistan as the dismissal came in the second over of the day which was bowled by Randiv. Misbah worked the ball towards square leg off the back foot and he ran for a single, Dilshan had one stump to aim at and he doesn’t miss those chances.
