Upul Tharanga eased the pressure on his place with 92 and contributed to an opening stand of 79 but it was Jayawardene the crowd had come to see, and they were left disappointed after he fell cheaply to Saeed Ajmal.
The spinner was permitted to play and bowl despite being reported to the ICC for a suspect action following the first Test, but was overshadowed on the day by seamers Junaid Khan and Wahab Riaz who shared the other seven wickets.
