Day 2 round-up: Dilruwan Perera and captain Angelo Mathews just missed centuries before Sri Lanka declared their first innings at a strong 428 for 9 against Pakistan on the second day of the decisive third Test on Friday.
Pakistan were 19 without loss at stumps and were in a tight corner to level the series after losing the second Test by nine wickets.
Perera made a brilliant 95 with 12 fours and two sixes and Mathews was out for a more pedestrian 91 with five fours and a six to quash Pakistan hopes of restricting Sri Lanka after it resumed from 220 for 5 overnight.
