Inzamam's nephew in Pakistan squad for Sri Lanka ODIs

De Silva to skipper 'A' team

When on 143 he completed his 3,000 runs in 44th Test. Kumar Sangakkara leads the table of highest Test run getters for Sri Lanka, amassing 12,400 runs in 134 Tests while his long-time partner Mahela Jayawardene has 11,814 runs in 149 matches.

Sri Lankan Left-handed Dimuth Karunaratne has steered his Side to a solid position in Second Test against Pakistan as the Islanders ended Day 1 at Dubai with 254 runs for 3 on Friday.

There is so much to play for in the second and final Test in Dubai. The visitors probably surprised even themselves by what happened in Abu Dhabi.

What wasn't surprising, though, was how the win was achieved. Rangana Herath dependably delivered the goods on the final day so he is emerging as a first left-arm spinner to bring up 400 Test wickets in history. Also, Pakistan panicked in the face of pressure - not for the first time. It will be the Pakistan batting unit which can counter the opposite team. Amir hurt his right shin during the opening day's play of the day-night Test. They kept him under observation overnight and paid a price for their decision on the second day when Amir walked off the field in the first session. It beaten Pakistan by 21 runs in first Test played in Abu Dhabi from September 28 to October 2. So when the panic button shouldn't be pressed.

"The Champions Trophy team has been retained except Azhar Ali, who has been rested for the ODI series to gain full fitness, said Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief selector Inzamam ul Haq".

Angelo Mathews missed the first Test, has now been ruled out of the second in spite of his injury.

SQUAD: Dhananjaya De Silva (captain), Charith Asalanka (vice-captain), Sadeera Samarawickrama, Roshen Silva, Sandun Weerakkody, Ron Chandragupta, Shehan Jayasuriya, Dasun Shanaka, Wanindu Hasaranga, Amila Aponso, Malinda Pushpakumara, Chamika Karunaratne, Lahiru Kumara, Vimukthi Perera, Asitha Fernando and Kasun Rajitha.
