    Day 1 round-up: Pakistan took an early advantage after fast bowlers Junaid Khan and debutant Bilawal Bhatti bowled out Sri Lanka for 204 on Tuesday on the opening day of the first Test.

    Captain Angelo Mathews launched a counter-attack by hitting 91 off 147 balls with 15 fours to give the total some respectability before he was the last man to be dismissed.

    Pakistan were 46 for 1 at stumps with debutant Ahmed Shehzad unbeaten on 25 as Khurram Manzoor was run out in the last over. Khan (5 for 58) had his fourth five-wicket haul against Sri Lanka while Bhatti (3 for 65) made an impressive debut by claiming three wickets in eight balls after lunch, which started a dramatic collapse as Sri Lanka lost seven wickets for just 57 runs.
