Sri Lanka vs Pakistan, 2nd Test Day 5 Live Score Updates: Skipper Babar Azam was unbeaten in Pakistan’s monumental 508 chase, but spinner Prabath Jayasuriya took two wickets on day five to help Sri Lanka smell victory in Thursday’s second Test. Jayasuriya got Agha Salman out for four just before lunchtime in Galle to either leave Pakistan with a whopping 320 to win, or ride out the last two sessions for a draw and 1-0 series win. The tourists were 188 for five with Azam hitting 76 after four wickets fell in the morning session. Pakistan resumed at 89. Off spinner Ramesh Mendis hit his first ball of the day to get Imam-ul-Haq behind, with the left-handed batsman adding just three to his overnight 46. Jayasuriya, who took one wicket on day four, shortened Mohammad Rizwan’s stay at 35 with his left arm spin. Fawad Alam lost one. The hosts are racing against the clock to knock out the opposition and even out the two-Test series with cloudy conditions and impending rain in the port city after poor light ended days three and four prematurely.
