ABU DHABI: Sri Lanka is looking for a respectable finish of the match at the fifth and final day of 1st Test against Pakistan in Abu Dhabi as Kumar Sangakkara (161*) still at the crease with last recognized batsmen Prasanna Jayawardene (25*), while, Sri Lanka are 16 runs behind Pakistan's score. Click here for Pak vs SL 1st Test Day 5 live score.

Pakistan will try it's best to bowled out the Sri Lankan batsmen in the 2nd inning. Although, pitch is favoring the batsmen but it is predicted that it will also help the spinners at the final day.

Once again, it was Pakistani fielding which provided several opputunities to Sri Lanka batsmen. Pakistanis were slippery and sloppy in the field. Yesterday, they dropped five catches.

While, Kumar Sangakkara stood like a wall in between Pakistan's victory and Sri Lankan defeat. Mahela Jayawardene and Tilakaratne Dilshan failed again to score some runs. Sri Lanka's top scorer in the 1st inning Angelo Mathews (22) also became the victim of Pakistani pacer Umar Gul.
