Sri Lanka plays its first day and night test cricket match from today against Pakistan.


Spinners will have a key role to play in the second Test between Sri Lanka and Pakistan – the first to be played by Sri Lanka under lights with a pink ball at the Dubai International Stadium today. Play is due to commence at 3.30 pm Sri Lankan time and end at 10.30 pm Sri Lankan time.

In the first Test at Abu Dhabi which Sri Lanka won by 21 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the two-match series, spinners took 26 of the 39 wickets to fall to bowlers and it is unlikely with the present state of the Dubai pitch that Sri Lanka will want to change their three-prong spin combination of Rangana Herath, Dilruwan Perera and Lakshan Sandakan.
