Pakistan lose three wickets before lunch

Pakistan are 59-3 at lunch after Sri Lanka's Dhammika Prasad and Rangana Herath struck in the opening session of the first Test match in Galle.

Two wickets from bowler Dhammika Prasad have helped Sri Lanka get off to a positive start to the first Test match with Pakistan.

After a delayed start, Prasad struck in the second over of the day to bowl Ahmed Shehzad for four runs, and it wasn't long before he picked up his second wicket of the morning.

Khurram Manzoor had struggled to three off 18 balls before he was trapped in front of his stumps to leave the tourists on 19-2.

Azhar Ali and Younis Khan put on 37 for the third wicket before Rangana Herath bowled Ali for 30, but Pakistan batted out the remainder of the session to end on 59-3.
