Opener Dimuth Karunaratne scored a dashing century to guide Sri Lanka to cross 200 while losing just 3 wickets after dinner on the first day of the second and final day-night Test against Pakistan in Dubai on Friday.

Karunaratne remained unbeaten after his century and captain Dinesh Chandimal also contributed after Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat on a flat pitch.

Karunaratne and opening partner Kaushal Silva (27) gave Sri Lanka a solid 63-run start before Pakistan hit back with three wickets in quick succession.

Leg-spinner Yasir Shah provided his team with the much-needed breakthrough when he had Silva caught behind off a short delivery.

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.

Kusal Mendis played a rash drive off Shah and was caught in the slips for one.

Karunaratne cracked three boundaries in an Amir over and hit Shah for another to reach his sixth Test fifty.

Sri Lanka lead the series 1-0 after winning the first Test by 21 runs in Abu Dhabi.

This is the sixth day-night Test with a pink ball since Australia and New Zealand played the first at Adelaide in December 2015.
