Perera comes good with bat to put Sri Lanka in driver's seat

Wednesday, July 11, 2021

Thisara Perera followed his four wickets with 75 off 86 balls as Sri Lanka seized control of the final Test against Pakistan on Tuesday. Pakistan, seeking a series-levelling win, paid for sloppy fielding as Sri Lanka recovered from a middle-order collapse to make 337 in their first innings on the third day.

The tourists, trailing by 111 runs, were 27-1 in their second knock by stumps, losing opener Taufeeq Umar for four, leg-before to Nuwan Kulasekara.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 226 & 27/1;

Sri Lanka 337 (Samaraweera 73, Perera 75; Junaid 5/70)
