"You have no idea what the pink ball has been doing in my dreams since Monday night", confessed a senior Pakistani batsman wishing anonymity, citing potential threats to his wicket. Openers Sami Aslam and Shan Masoon remained unbeaten on 30 and 15 respectively. "We never underestimate Pakistan, they are a really good side, especially in the last couple of series they have played really good cricket", said Chandimal, whose team will replace Pakistan at sixth in the world rankings with a series win.

Karunaratne played both spinners and pacers easily as he hit 14 boundaries in his century.
Debutant Sadeera Samarawickrama impressed during his short stay of 38 runs, hitting five boundaries and a six before he miscued a pull and was caught and bowled by pacer Mohammad Amir.
Abbas then had Suranga Lakmal for eight to finish with 2-100 while Shah ended the innings by dismissing Nuwan Pradeep for nought.
However, Pakistan's task was made harder by Mohammad Amir being ruled out of bowling for the rest of the game - and the forthcoming one-day series - by a stress injury in his shin. However, the left-armer could only manage three more overs before the pain flared up again.
