Pakistan did not go into the Test series against Sri Lanka as favourites. This was specifically because they had not won a Test series in Sri Lanka in nearly a decade. But, it must be said they put up a fantastic performance to pull off a memorable series triumph.

Pakistan's batting veteran Younis Khan starred with an unbeaten 171 as the visitors registered a historic victory, chasing down their highest ever total, that of 377 set by Sri Lanka at Pallekele.

Pakistan have grabbed the initiative in the opening Test following a solid batting performance on Day 2 to move into a first innings lead. Having bowled out the Proteas for a modest total of 249, Pakistan are sitting pretty at 263 for 3.
