Gaul. Abdullah Shafiq’s 160 not out helped Pakistan beat Sri Lanka by four wickets in the first Test here on Wednesday, after the record goal. Despite the political and economic crisis in Sri Lanka, this series of tests is being organized. Shafiq, who took advantage of the lifeline, hit six fours and a six in his innings on 408 balls. Shafiq was lucky to score four runs when a credible play-befor appeal against him was rejected. Dhananjay de Silva lost his catch on his own ball on the score 135, while his catch was also missed on the score on 151 runs.

On the fifth day, the start of the match was delayed due to rain after lunch, while Pakistan needed 11 runs more to score. At the start of the match, Pakistan scored 344 for six after losing the wicket from Hasan Ali (05). Earlier in Galle, Sri Lanka had achieved 268 runs against New Zealand in 2019. Shafiq added 71 runs to the fourth wicket with yesterday’s undefeated batsman Mohammad Rizwan to ease the way to reach the goal of 342 runs. Rizwan scored 40 runs before the delivery of Prabath Jayasuriya. At this point, Pakistan had to make less than 70 runs as they had six wickets left. Sri Lanka rejected Agha Salman (12) in the last over before lunch. Protests against inflation and corruption also took place a few hundred meters away from the stadium during the test. Further massive protests broke out in the capital Colombo, forcing Sri Lanka cricket officials to move the second Test from Colombo to Galle, from Sunday.
