Abu Dhabi: Mohammed Hafeez and Ahmed Shehzad scored fluent half centuries as the first Test against Sri Lanka ended in a draw on the fifth day on Saturday.
Hafeez (80 not out) and debutant Shehzad (55) added 101 runs for the second wicket to take their team to safety after Sri Lanka pacer Suranga Lakmal dismissed opener Khurram Manzoor (8) early in the innings.
Pakistan reached 158 for the loss of two wickets when both the teams agreed to a draw with first-innings centurion Younis Khan (13 not out) being the other unbeaten batsman at the crease.
Shehzad was out leg before to Rangana Herath at the start of the final session and his attempt to overturn the umpire’s decision through a review also proved unsuccessful. (Reuters)
