A maiden century by Pakistani opener Ahmed Shezad  gave Pakistan hoped of levelling the test series against Sri Lanka on day three of the  third and final test.

However, it was Sri Lanka that won the battle of patience as they were able to dismiss six Pakistani batsmen on Saturday. Pakistan resumed their first innings on an overnight score of 19 for no loss and were buoyed by a opening stand of 114 runs.

Kuram Manzoor who recorded his 7th test 50 today was the first Pakistani wicket to fall. Dilruwan Perera captured his test victim when he dismissed Azar Ali a short while later for 8 runs.

Misbah ul Haq fell to the bowling of Rangana Hearth for 36 runs. Opener Ahmed Shezad who scored his maiden century today missed out on reaching the 150 run mark as he was undone by Herath for 147.

At stumps on day three Pakistan were 291 for the loss of six wickets trailing Sri Lanka by 137 runs .
