7:48 am on 12 January 2014

Pakistan have thwarted Sri Lanka's victory bid on the fourth day of the second cricket Test in Dubai.

Skipper Misbah-ul Haq led Pakistan's resistance with a gritty 97 to help Pakistan to 330 for seven at stumps, before bad light and drizzle ended play 15 overs before schedule.

Pakistan are leading by 107 runs with a full day's play remaining.

Sri Lanka was dismissed for 388 in their first innings.

The first Test was drawn.
