  • Lunch was called after only 7.5 overs of play due to intermittent rain; Sri Lanka were 222/5 at lunch.
  • Shaheen Afridi was the only bowler to strike on day 2 by dismissing N. Dickwella on 33 at the hands of Babar Azam.


 De Silva’s batting was the highlight of the day who managed to score fifty despite unfavorable conditions after narrowly surviving a caught-behind by Naseem Shah in 72nd over.

Rain was the obvious enemy on Day 2 and fans took to Twitter to vent their anger.

Meanwhile, Pak captain Azhar Ali indulged in some fan servicing during the rain-induced pause.
