Sri Lanka will not only look to square the series against Pakistan but also earn crucial ICC World Test Championship points when the two Asian giants meet in the second match starting Sunday (July 24). The match was originally scheduled to be played in Colombo, but the ongoing political and economic crisis in the island nation forced it to be moved to Galle, where Pakistan won the first Test by four wickets. The second and final SL vs PAK Test will be telecast live. Also, follow live scores HERE and ball-by-commentary HERE. (More Cricket News)

In the first match, Sri Lanka won the toss and opted to bat first. Thanks to a measured 76 from veteran Dinesh Chandimal, the hosts reached 222, and they took a four-run lead in the first innings despite Babar Azam's brilliant, shepherding 119 even. Prabath Jayasuriya claimed a fifer.

Sri Lankan then set a target of 342 runs with Chandimal once again top scoring for the hosts with a classy 94. But his innings was overshadowed by an epic knock from Abdullah Shafique, who remained not out on 160 off 408 balls as Pakistan completed the chase on the final day.

Pakistan are now third in the ICC Test Championship table with 58.33 PCT, behind South Africa (71.48) and Australia (70). Sri Lanka are sixth with 48.15, behind India (52.08) and the West Indies (50).

Expect another intense clash in the second Test.
