Day 2 round-up: Pakistan rode on centuries by Younis Khan and captain Misbah-ul-Haq to finish the second day of the first Test on a healthy 327 for 4 and 123-run lead against Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

Younis hit 19 fours and a six in scoring an unblemished 136 off 198 balls before he was bowled off an inside edge off Shaminda Eranga (2 for 63). Misbah ground out an unbeaten 105 off 250 balls with 13 fours and will resume the third day with Asad Shafiq unbeaten on 12.

Misbah's and Younis' 218-run stand in 4 1/4 hours has placed Sri Lanka in a tight corner as their bowlers struggled to contain Pakistan's two most experienced batsmen.
