Sri Lanka vs Pakistan, Second Test, Day 2 Live Updates and Live Score: Sri Lanka’s spinners struck three times in the second session on day two against Pakistan, including taking skipper Babar Azam’s scalp, to stagger the tourists on Monday. Pakistan, which led the two-match Test series 1-0, was 111 for four at tea in response to Sri Lanka’s first innings 378 and still trailing by 267 runs in Galle. Fawad Alam, on 18, and Agha Salman, on 13, struck at the break. Left arm spinner Prabath Jayasuriya threw Azam for 16 on a spinning pitch that caused the edge of the danger man’s bat to crash into the stumps. Imam-ul-Haq tried to rebuild the innings with Mohammad Rizwan, but Dhananjaya de Silva broke through with his off-spin to send Imam back at 32. De Silva takes over as captain in place of Dimuth Karunaratne, who did not take the field in the Pakistani innings due to back pain. (LIVE SCORING CARD)
