Srilanka won the first test match on the last day of the test match.
Two hours of poor batting undid three days of excellent work for Pakistan in the first Test in Galle, and they now have the uphill task of needing to win two back-to-back Tests to take the series, or win one and draw the other to ensure their record of not losing a series in Sri Lanka remains intact
Sri Lanka have won their last 4 Tests at the P Sara Oval stadium , two of them were against Bangladesh. Their overall record here is six wins and two losses, one of which was against Pakistan.

Pitch and conditions
The pitch is hard and has a bit of grass on it, and should have good bounce.
Spinners have done well at this venue, and they can look forward to some assistance from the track from the fourth day onwards.
It has been hot, humid and mostly cloudless over the past three days, but the forecast is predicted rain over the next week.
“If you see the history of Pakistan cricket, if we have lost one match we come back in a very big way. I have enough confidence in these boys, that they have the courage and the character to come back.”
Intikhab Alam, the Pakistan coach
“When you win one, you always have that edge for the next game, but it’s a new Test and a new start. What happened a week ago will really not matter when the first ball is bowled.”
