Centuries by Younis Khan and Pakistani skipper Misbah Ul Haq gave Pakistan a 123 run lead on Day 2 of their first test encounter against Sri Lanka.

The game which is being worked off at the Sheik Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi saw Sri Lanka being restricted to a first innings score of 204 runs. Pakistan who resumed their first innings on an overnight score of 46 for 1, failed to get off to a good start as they lost Mohammad Hafeez and Ahmed Shezad early on in the day.

However, a 217 run 4th wicket stand between Younis Khan and skipper Misbah Ul Haq ensured that Pakistan took the lead on day 2. Younis went on to score his 23rd test century.

His innings came to an end when he was undone by Shaminda Eranga for 136. Misbah Ul Haq meanwhile went on to score his 5th century in the longer version of the game and remained unbeaten on 105.

Pakistan ended Day 2 on 327 for 4, with a lead of 123 runs.
