Karunaratne missed out on a maiden Test double-century when he played on to a delivery from Wahab Riaz, who earlier took six attempts to bowl the fifth ball of an over before finally getting his run-up right.
At one point, he managed to fetch one boundary per over for four successive overs as Karunaratne at the other end went past his highest Test score. The same XI could take the field in Dubai, hopefully, it can have a record intact.
Ali - the backbone of Pakistan's batting line-up - has become the eighth batsman to complete 5,000 runs in Test matches. So there are no grounds for a triumphant Sri Lanka to alter their combination either.
