LIVE CRICKET STREAMING OF PAKISTAN vs SRI LANKA

Pakistan had a tough Australian tour where they lost everything they played including 2 Test Matches, And now its time for some home games, and that too after 10 years. Sri Lankan team finally agreed to come and play the TEST matches in Pakistan, First Test Match is scheduled to be played on 11-Dec in Rawalpindi. It is notable that Pakistan lost the ODI and T20 Series to a much lesser Sri Lankan team a month back when Sri Lanka toured Pakistan, But all the main seasoned players opted out of that series sighting security reasons. Now Sri Lanka is touring with their full-strength team. Pakistani Coach and Cheif Selector have said they will not take this series lightly and will toil hard to beat the Lankans in Test Matches.

Pakistan vs Sri Lankan series is also a part of the ICC TEST CHAMPIONSHIP, Pakistan will be playing 2 Test Matches against Sri Lanka. Lets see if Pakistan can produce their A-game in their own back yard.

Dhananjaya de Silva to Babar Azam. Off break yorker, down leg side on the front foot defending, to short mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Karunaratne. Handshakes all round and that will finish what has been a frustrating Test match for all involved. The crowd were excited to finally see Test cricket back in Pakistan but the rain had something to say about that. Today though both sets of players put on a show with centuries from Dhananjaya de Silva this morning before the debutant Abid Ali reached the same mark along with Babar Azam. Maybe not the most thrilling of matches but hopefully things will be a lot different in Karachi next week.

Mohammad Abbas to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Ali. Sri Lanka opt to declare to give their bowlers a run out and try to find some rhythm. Good decision with the next match just around the corner. Wonderful scenes from this morning as Dhananjaya finally made a century after beginning his innings on day one. Sri Lanka posted a decent total and now it's over to their bowlers. There will be some nerves around in the Pakistan camp as Abid Ali pads up for the first time in Test cricket. Perfect situation for him though with no pressure and he can take his time.

We have had four frustrating days watching the rain and then bad light intervene but right now the sun is shining and cricket will be played. A result is not likely to be on the cards unless something drastic happens. Dhananjaya de Silva though will be eyeing up a sixth Test hundred as he resumes on 87 not out. Maybe both teams can use today as batting and bowling practice before the next Test in Karachi.

The light has deteriorated, and off the players go. Very frustrating.Stumps on day three in Rawalpindi. A bitterly disappointing day. Just 32 balls were able to be bowled. Too wet and too dark. It is hard to see any result apart from a draw now, but hopefully the last couple of days can provide some entertainment.Hello and welcome to a wet day four. Another delayed start after a lot of overnight rain. Plenty of work for the groundstaff to do before we see any play today.Disappointing news for everyone at the ground. There is too much water on the outfield and the umpire's have made an early decision to call it off. Join us tomorrow for the final day to hopefully see some play.

FOUR! Shaheen Afridi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Glorious drive from Dhananjaya. He has picked up from where he left off. He lunges forward, and creams the ball through the covers for four.

Shaheen Afridi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by Khan. Welcome to day three in Rawalpindi, where unfortunately the weather has not improved from yesterday afternoon. The covers are on, it is cold, and it does not look like there will be any play soon. A real shame for Pakistan with the return to Test cricket in their home. Hopefully there will be some better news soon.Good news. One session lost, but the players are going back out. What will the day's play bring us today?

Shaheen Afridi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Rizwan. That is very frustrating. This time the light has stopped play. Too dark for the umpires' liking. It will be a miracle if it gets any lighter for the rest of the day, but hopefully that won't be it.Unfortunately that will be it for the day. Just a little over 18 overs were managed. A mixture of rain and bad light has scuppered the action. Pakistan picking up one wicket in that period, and Dhananjaya is still unbeaten on 72. Join us again tomorrow morning, for hopefully more cricket on show.

OUT! Caught. Shaheen Afridi to Niroshan Dickwella. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to gully, by Azam. Shaheen strikes! Pakistan were desperate for that. A nothing shot from Dickwella. He plays a long way from the body, lazily driving, and a thick outside edge is found. Excellent take at gully by Babar. It went sharply but he held on with both hands.

Mohammad Abbas to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Abbas. Welcome to day two in Rawalpindi. A seesaw day yesterday, but the overall match situation now is fairly even. The inconsistency of both teams results in some very entertaining Test cricket, and no one can predict what will happen in the next few sessions. It is a cold and overcast morning in Pakistan, so it could be bowler friendly early on this morning. Sri Lanka will want to sneak up to a score of over 300 to give them a nice cushion, but the hosts will be confident of skittling them out quickly. Hopefully the rain can stay away today, and we can get in some exciting action.

Mohammad Abbas to Niroshan Dickwella. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Abbas. The light has diminished and it is too dark for the players to get back on, so that will be stumps. A very topsy turvy day. Sri Lanka started the better, Pakistan came roaring back in the afternoon, and it was pretty even in the evening. The hosts may have the slight edge after losing the toss, but both sides are still well in the contest. Quite a few overs lost today, so it will likely be an earlier start tomorrow morning to make them up. Join us then to see the intriguing battle continue.

APPEAL! Shaheen Afridi to Dhananjaya de Silva. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Azam, appeal made for L.B.W. The bowler is really interested in this. Angled in from round the wicket, and Dhananjaya gets beaten on the inside edge. Too high to be considered for LBW. Clearly not out.

OUT! Bowled. Mohammad Abbas to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, missed to. What a peach from Abbas! Unplayable really. Chandimal plays down the line, it jags away off the deck, and slides past the outside edge. The off stump gets pegged back, and that's Pakistan's fourth of the session. Brilliant bowling.

OUT! Caught. Usman Shinwari to Kusal Mendis. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Rizwan. Shinwari has deserved that. A first test wicket for him. Round the wicket, shaping it away from the right hander, and Mendis goes feeling for this away from the body. Played with hard hands, and a healthy edge carries through to the keeper with ease. A typical dismissal for Kusal. Sri Lanka in trouble now.

Perfect session for the visitors. There was some doubt of what to do at the toss, as it was very overcast this morning, but Karunaratne chose correctly in batting first. There's been a hint of movement in the air, but nothing off the pitch. Both opening batsmen have been superb, and given the bowlers nothing. It looks pretty flat, so it could be a long day for Pakistan.

Start of Sri Lanka Innings. Welcome to the first of two Test Matches between Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka have won the toss in Rawalpindi and elected to bat first. Exciting times for all cricket fans today, but in particular a historic moment for the hosts, as international Test cricket is returning to the country of Pakistan after a ten year absence. After not being in this part of the world for so long, the 22 yards will be a bit of an unknown. Neither team will know how it will play, it is also very overcast this morning, and that will all add to what should be an intriguing start to this game. It is hard to say who the favourites will be, but the hosts might have the edge with the home crowd on their side. Hopefully we have a cracking five days ahead of us.

Handshakes all round and that will finish what has been a frustrating Test match for all involved. The crowd were excited to finally see Test cricket back in Pakistan but the rain had something to say about that. Today though both sets of players put on a show with centuries from Dhananjaya de Silva this morning before the debutant Abid Ali reached the same mark along with Babar Azam. Maybe not the most thrilling of matches but hopefully things will be a lot different in Karachi next week.

OUT! Caught. Kasun Rajitha to Shan Masood. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to extra cover, by Chandimal. Can you believe it? The friendliest of full tosses outside the off stump and Masood has lobbed it straight to the fielder. He is in shock at not managing to find the gap or being able to keep it on the floor. Surely Pakistan can't mess this up.

APPEAL! Kasun Rajitha to Shan Masood. Yorker, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to gully for 1 run, by Perera, appeal made for Caught. Outstanding diving catch at gully. Perera is at full length and Sri Lanka think they have an early wicket, although it looks to have bounced first. That's what the umpire's decide before sending it upstairs. None of this matters in the end as Rajitha has overstepped.
