Younus Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq steadied the Pakistan second innings with an unbroken 113-run stand, after their team appeared to be heading for a heavy defeat by losing three quick wickets on Day 3 in the second test against Sri Lanka in Dubai.

Meanwhile, earlier in the day, resuming on 318 for four, Sri Lanka were all out for 388 in their first innings in the morning, losing their last six wickets for just 68 runs.

Mahela Jayawardena commenced from where he left off on Day 2. However, he kept loosing partners on the other end.

Angelo Matthews was the first to fall Friday as he was sent back to the dresser for 42 runs.

Junaid Khan got the better of Prasanna Jayawardena as he was bowled out for nine runs.

A mix-up between the wickets cost Rangana Herath as he was undone for six runs.

Mahela Jayawardena who showed no remorse to the Pakistani bowlers was dismissed for 129 runs.

Sri Lanka were eventually bowled out for 388 runs.

Pakistan who commenced their second innings trailing by 223, started abysmally as left-arm spinner Rangana Herath dismissed opener Ahmed Shehzad at the stroke of lunch and Paceman Nuwan Pradeep struck twice early in the afternoon to reduce them to 19 for three.

That brought Younus, who completed his 28th half century in tests, and captain Misbah together and the pair went about carefully in their rescue mission.
