Karunaratne puts Sri Lanka in strong position in 2nd test

Opener Dimuth Karunaratne compiled a brilliant century to put Sri Lanka in a commanding position at 254 for three on the opening day of the second day-night Test in Dubai on Friday.

The left-hander was unbeaten on 133, adding 118 for an unbroken fourth-wicket stand with skipper Dinesh Chandimal (49 not out) after Sri Lanka won the toss and batted on a flat Dubai Stadium pitch.

Karunaratne batted with authority and style to reach his seventh Test hundred off 197 balls, hitting Mohammad Amir for two consecutive boundaries to complete three figures.

He batted for 381 minutes, hitting 15 boundaries and a six.
