It beaten Pakistan by 21 runs in first Test played in Abu Dhabi from September 28 to October 2. This match between the team Pakistan and Sri Lanka is touted as the much awaited and anticipated match which is making it an important match anyway.

Not only did Karunaratne play a watchful innings to give Lanka a steady start after the visitors elected to bat after winning the toss but he also anchored the innings from time to time to keep Pakistan at bay.

Starting off the day on 254/3, Sri Lanka only added 28 runs to their overnight score before captain Dinesh Chandimal was given out lbw off the bowling of Yasir Shah for 62, which came off 195 balls and included six boundaries.

It was not surprising, although, it achieved the win.
