At the start of day two, Pakistan were banking their hopes on early wickets, but instead their bowlers turned in an inconsistent performance and leaked runs in s Sri Lanka's early initiative. The visitors continued to add runs freely in the first session of the day. The overnight pair of Thilan Samaraweera and Tillekaratne Dilshan scored freely and uninhibited as none of the Pakistani bowler managed to make any impression as they scored at a rate of 4.62 per over to go into lunch at a commanding 452-4. Danish Kaneria proved ineffectual once again giving away plenty of runs and not troubling the batsmen - indeed it was not the way in which premier bowlers bowls. Clearly Pakistan bowling line is looking toothless as the Sri Lankans reduced them to chase leather. Umar Gul is the only bowler to do well but not consistently. Things didn't improve much in the afternoon either as Sri Lanka continued to pile on the runs. Samaraweera finally fell after reaching his second successive double ton. He was run out for a very well made 214 off 338 balls including 32 splendid fours. His partnership with Tillekaratne Dilshan yielded 207 for the fifth wicket as the Sri Lankans took a stranglehold on the match. Dilshan, in the meanwhile, continued to bat well from the other end as he completed his eighth Test hundred. He played at a brisk pace and reached his hundred of only 109 balls. The visitors reached tea at 566-7. However the Sri Lankan innings folded soon after tea once Dilshan was also runout for 145 off 170 balls including 21 fours. For Pakistan Umar Gul was the lone warrior taking 6-135 his fourth five-wicket haul in Test cricket. Sri Lanka made 606 in their first innings - the second successive Test in the series they have done so which reflects the mediocrity of Pakistani bowling. Pakistan openers made a confident start reaching 110-1 by the end of day's play. Khurram Manzoor was batting on 59 off 71 balls including 11 fours (his maiden Test fifty) while Salman Butt was needlessly run out just before the close after making 48 off 74 balls. Pakistan are still 496 runs adrift of Sri Lanka's first innings total. An uphill task lay ahead to bat out the next three days. They managed to do so in Karachi but doing it every time wont be easy. One thing that goes in Pakistan's favour is that the pitch is still playing well.
