Kolkata to host opening Test against Sri Lanka

We had the ability to chase that target. "Unfortunately we lost early wickets and could not recover, so there are lessons to be learnt which we will learn". Had one [batsman] played a big knock in the first innings, we would have got a bigger lead. "Had we done that, we would not have been in this situation". Had we done that, things would have been different.

Azhar said the plan was to bat positively in the chase.

"In the fourth innings and on the final day, whatever the target you get it's not easy to score".

Herath became the first left-arm spinner to take 400 Test wickets, and finished with a match haul of eleven dismissals in Abu Dhabi.

"Well those were different conditions", Azhar told reporters on Wednesday.

Herath exposed the new batting line up of Pakistan, playing without their batting greats Younis Khan and Misbah-ul-Haq for the time since they retired in May this year. Even I have got out for him some six times.

"We will do our best to be more positive against Herath", said Ahmed. Over the years, sometimes we have dominated him and at other times he has made his presence felt.

Rangana Herath picked up his 400th Test wicket.

This would be the third full Test series the allrounder has missed in the last 12 months.

"I think it was a team decision and I back it", he said.

They have won five and drawn four series in the UAE ever since the 2009 terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan team bus forced them to play home matches out of Pakistan. He is supportive to me and the players, with what he has learnt from cricket. "They need me at No. 3 to adjust the middle order".

The second Test, which will be a pink-ball, day-night affair, will start in Dubai on Friday.
