AT THE start of the final day Pakistan looked favourites to win with only seven wickets to take. But they failed to make inroads in the first session of the day as both Kumar Sangakkara and Thilan Samaraweera played with authority making good use of their feet and thwarting the Pakistani bowlers. Danish Kaneria and Saeed Ajmal bowled to the best of their abilities yet weren't able to make any breakthroughs. Even with the new ball there weren't any wickets for them. Sri Lanka went into lunch at 262-3 and looked set to bat out for draw. Thilan Samaraweera who played well for his fifty fell soon after tea to Saeed Ajmal for 73 (143 balls, 11 fours). However captain Sangakkara led from the front and continued to defy the Pakistani bowlers from the other end. He put his head down and went about the job in a professional manner. Sangakkara who completed his 7,000 Test runs on day four not only completed his hundred but also played with minimum risk and found an able ally in Angelo Matthews. Pakistan's hopes of winning the Test faded fast and their bowlers were frustrated to the maximum by these two. Pakistani spinners bowled well and tried their heart out but it was Umar Gul, the lead bowler who disappointed by bowling quite a few full tosses and no balls when penetration was required of him. Matthews supported his captain with 64 notout as Sri Lanka ended with 391-4. Indeed it was a fine effort on part of Sri Lanka to bat it out for a draw when Pakistan looked favourites to win a face-saving. There were quite a few areas where Pakistan does not need improvement. With the series lost, they need application in batting and the penetration in bowling.
