The 22-year-old right-hander done 147 in usually his second Test as Pakistan scored 6-291 during tighten on a third day, still trailing by 137 runs behind Sri Lanka’s initial innings sum of 9-428 declared.

Pakistan mislaid Sarfraz Ahmed for five, held behind off spinner Rangana Herath in a final over of a day. Misbah-ul Haq was dominant on 36.

With dual days remaining, and Pakistan lagging good behind, it will be tough pulpy to make a result, with Sri Lanka happy with a draw.

While Pakistan struggled for runs, it was a noted day for immature Shehzad.

He combined a discerning 56 for a fourth wicket with Misbah.

Pakistan, trailing 1-0 in a three-match array after losing a second Test in Dubai by 9 wickets, managed 150 runs in a initial dual sessions after resuming during 0-19, losing opener Khurram Manzoor (52) and Azhar Ali (eight).

Sri Lanka mostly employed a six-man leg-side margin as a bowlers done runs tough to come by, with Pakistan adding usually 23 in a initial hour’s play.

But Shehzad, who done 55 in a drawn initial Test in Abu Dhabi, speeded adult things in a final session, assisting Pakistan to make 122 in a dual hours though for a detriment of 4 wickets.

Shehzad reached his hundred with a integrate towards cover off spinner Dilruwan Perera, holding 230 balls to strech a three-figure mark, with 7 fours. His second fifty came off 80 balls.

Shehzad was finally bowled off a retreat brush opposite Herath. He batted for 339 minutes, strike 12 fours and a six. He put on 114 for a opening wicket with Manzoor.

Manzoor fell shortly after lunch as he attempted to peek a leg-side smoothness from paceman Shaminda Eranga though usually managed to snick it to wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene.

He strike 4 bounds during his 125-ball innings.

Ali, forsaken for a initial dual Tests, battled for 27 deliveries and over after circumference off-spinner Perera to trip for his initial Test wicket.

Both Manzoor and Ali challenged a umpire’s decisions though finished adult wasting both Pakistan’s referrals.

Experienced batsman Younis Khan didn’t final prolonged possibly as he fell held behind off Herath for 17. Herath had a best total among Sri Lankan bowlers with 3-88.

Eranga had 2-53 while Perera took 1-71.
