Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to field first in the second test against Pakistan at the SSC grounds Colombo.

Misbah-ul Haq returned to lead Pakistan after missing the first Test in Galle due to a one-match ban for slow over-rates. Middle-order batsman Mohammad Ayub was dropped to accommodate the skipper.

The tourists, trailing 1-0 in the three-match series, suffered a blow when frontline seamer Umar Gul was ruled out with an ankle injury. He was replaced by fast bowler Aizaz Cheema.

Sri Lanka retained the same side for the match at the Sinhalese Sports Club that won the Galle Test by 209 runs.

Teams:

Sri Lanka: Mahela Jayawardene (Capt.), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Tharanga Paranavitana, Kumar Sangakkara, Thilan Samaraweera, Angelo Mathews, Prasanna Jayawardene, Suraj Randiv, Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara, Nuwan Pradeep.

Pakistan: Misbah-ul Haq (Capt.), Mohammad Hafeez, Taufeeq Umar, Azhar Ali, Younis Khan, Asad Shafiq, Adnan Akmal, Saeed Ajmal, Abdur Rehman, Junaid Khan, Aizaz Cheema.

    Mahela made two bad decisions in two tests? But he is the great Captain for Srilanka.
