Pakistan vs Sri Lanka (PAK vs SL) 1st Test Day 5 Highlights: The return of Test cricket to Pakistan was somewhat spoiled by unfavourable weather conditions, with only one innings possible from either side in the Rawalpindi Test. A full day’s action was possible on Day 5 on Sunday, and Pakistan batsmen Abid Ali (109*) and Babar Azam (102*) capitalized to bring up their maiden tons at home. For Abid Ali, the day was extra special as he became the first batsman to score a ton both on ODI debut as well as Test debut.
Earlier, Dhananjaya de Silva scored his sixth Test century. Sri Lanka declared the innings at 308/6. Day 4 had been abandoned without a ball being bowled. Pakistan finished their innings at 252/2 in 70 overs, to be behind Sri Lanka’s score by 56 runs.
