Silva, Jayawardene carry Sri Lanka to 132-3

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- Opener Kaushal Silva and Mahela Jayawardene carried Sri Lanka to 132-3 at lunch on Thursday's second day of the second test against Pakistan.

Silva was unbeaten on a patient 40 while Jayawardene was not out on 19 as Sri Lanka moved within 33 runs of Pakistan's first innings of 165.

The pair added 44 runs after Pakistan's seamers had struck twice inside the first hour. Rahat Ali got his first success of the series when he had Kumar Sangakkara (26) leg before wicket and Dinesh Chandimal (12) threw away his wicket by needlessly pulling a delivery from Junaid Khan (2-36).
