Sri Lanka turns down Pakistans invitation for Test cricket

As for the second session?

A six-member delegation of Sri Lanka Cricket arrived in Pakistan this month to review the country's security situation ahead of the two-match Test series under the ICC World Test Championship.

After waiting almost four hours for the skies to clear and the ground to dry at P Sara Oval, the Black Caps lost the toss, and then saw Sri Lanka's batsmen start turn good fortune into good results to reach 71-1 at tea. Karunaratne and Lahiru Thirimanne handled the hint of movement on offer with a degree of confidence.

De Grandhomme got Mendis caught behind on a seaming delivery outside the off stump and Watling gloved the catch.

His misery ended when he pushed a William Somerville delivery and was caught at extra cover by skipper Kane Williamson.

Club Brugge Make Breakthrough In Victor Wanyama Chase
Standard.co.uk understands that the Belgian club are willing to offer £8m to sign the 28-year-old Kenya worldwide but Tottenham want £11m.

Both teams made one change from the first test with New Zealand bringing in seam bowling all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme for specialist spinner Mitchell Santner. Karunaratne had three shots run away through the slips for four - saved by his soft hands - and survived a decent lbw shout which was shown to be going over the stumps.

De Grandhomme then extended his value when play resumed after another delay after tea.

Only 36.3 overs were possible after early rain and a wet outfield caused a delayed start and bad light resulted in an early finish. With a tinge of grass on offer and moisture seeping in, the opening pace duo could have bowled better.

In October 2017, Sri Lanka played a T20 match in Lahore for the first time since a terror attack near the same venue in March 2009.
