Pakistan in trouble after Silva�s century

By The Assam Tribune

GALLE, June 19 (AFP): Sri Lanka�s bowlers ripped through Pakistan�s top order in dramatic fashion to leave the tourists struggling on the scheduled third day of the first Test here today.

After opener Kaushal Silva hit 125 to lift Sri Lanka to 300 in the first innings, Pakistan collapsed to 35-3 in reply before a partial recovery saw them to 118-5 by stumps.

Asad Shafiq was unbeaten on 14 and Sarfraz Ahmed was on 15 when rain forced play to end early with the tourists trailing by 182 runs with five wickets in hand.
