DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Sri Lanka fast bowlers exploited ideal seaming conditions to bowl out Pakistan for 165 on the first day of the second cricket test on Wednesday.

Nuwan Pradeep, who had three wickets in his previous four tests, led the attack with 3-62 as only opening batsman Khurram Manzoor (73) stood out before edging to Suranga Lakmal (2-45).

In a sensational collapse after lunch, Pakistan lost five wickets for 71 runs to limp to 128-6 at tea.

Then left-arm spinner Rangana Herath (3-26) polished off the tail and gave Sri Lanka the early advantage.

Pradeep had the wickets of opener Ahmed Shehzad (3), Mohammad Hafeez (21) and Sarfraz Ahmed (7), and Shaminda Eranga (2-25) broke the backbone by removing first test century-makers Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq in the space of seven deliveries.
