Last night everyone went to bed thinking that Pakistan will win their first test match in two and a half years.
Go to bed that is.
I stayed up all night in anticipation of a Pakistan win.
97 to get, 8 wickets in hand, Yousuf and Butt at the crease; who would have thought that the Pakistani batsmen had other things on their minds.
Sri Lanka have all but closed this test and I guess its time to go to bed.
I know Stani and many others will be looking to slit my throat for pointing out that Sri Lanka had not won a test against Pakistan at home since 1986.
But a fact is a fact. It was true.
So the win, which was supposed to be a first for Pakistan in two and a half years, will now in all probability be a first for Sri Lanka in 23 years!
A bit historic for them I guess.
Sri Lanka never looked like winning this game; Pakistan was on top from the moment Younis Khan called right at the toss.
All the way till this morning.
Tushara and Herath bowled brilliantly and the Pakistani batsmen had no answer for the swing and spin.
But there is no excuse for Pakistan's slide from 71-2 to 86-7.
They blew it!
