Pakistan’s Saud Shakeel scored an unbeaten 161 runs on day three of the rain-hit Test match against Sri Lanka. At tea, Pakistan’s score was 389-8 with Shakeel and Naseem Shah having an unbeaten partnership of 43 runs. Shakeel reached his second Test century before lunch, helping Pakistan surpass Sri Lanka’s first innings score of 312. Despite Sri Lanka taking wickets in the second session, Shakeel stood his ground and surpassed his previous Test best score of 125 not out. He was dropped twice during his innings. Shakeel and Agha Salman had earlier rescued Pakistan from a difficult situation on day two, with a partnership of 177 runs. They played well against the Sri Lankan spinners, who caused trouble for Pakistan on the previous day. The rain delayed the start of play on day three, leading to a rearrangement of session timings.
