Sri Lanka, who lead 1-0 in the three-match series, have not lost a Test at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo since 2004 and have won six of their last 11 matches there.
But Misbah-ul Haq, returning as Pakistan captain after missing the first Test in Galle due to a one-match ban for slow over-rates, was unfazed by the hosts’ ominous record at the SSC. “We know Sri Lanka play well at home, they know the conditions well. But this is a new Test match and both sides will go out there to win.”
