Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir has been ruled out of the upcoming One-Day International series against Sri Lanka to be played in the United Arab Emirates.

Sri Lanka didn't enforce the follow on the third day of second Test at Dubai even after Pakistan was all out for 262 runs in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings score of 482.

Masood's opening partner, Sami Aslam, was on his way back to the pavilion the very next over as he was given out lbw off the bowling of Dilruwan Perera for 39. Ali hit six boundaries in his patient knock.

Asad Shafiq and Babar Azam failed to have an impact with the bat as they were dismissed by Suranga Lakmal and Rangana Herath for 12 and eight runs respectively.

The Central Pollution Control Board also supported the petitioners and emphasized the need to keep the decision of Ban. The ban on sale of firecrackers will apply till 1 November, CNN-News-18 reported.

Pakistan lost opener Sami Aslam in a shaky start to their tough 317-run target chase as they were 15-1 at tea on the fourth day of the second day-night Test in Dubai on Monday.

Riaz dismissed Sri Lankan skipper Dinesh Chandimal leg before for nought in the last over before close to give Pakistan a faint hope of upsetting the tables, but it will be an uphill task for their faltering batsmen to improve in the second innings.

On Day-2 of the second Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the world witnessed a freaky moment of play when Riaz missed his run-up and ended the delivery five times in a row.

Kusal Mendis, the highest scorer of the inning, scored 29 runs before being caught by Sarfraz. In his List-A career, Usman has 30 wickets at 26.63 with three four-wicket hauls.
