Dubai, United Arab Emriates: Opening batsmen Dimuth Karunaratne and Kaushal Silva hit half centuries Sunday and drove Sri Lanka to an emphatic 9-wicket victory over Pakistan in the second test to go 1-0 up in the series.
 

 
Karunaratne remained unbeaten on 62 while Silva fell for 58 as Sri Lanka reached 137-1 for its biggest win by wickets among 45 tests played between the two nations.
   
Resuming at 330-7, fast bowler Suranga Lakmal dashed Pakistan's hopes of putting up a fight with a career-best 4-78 before Pakistan was bowled out for 359 in an hour on the last day -- an overall lead of 136 runs.
   
Wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene equaled the Sri Lanka record of nine catches in a test match when he had Rahat Ali caught behind.
   
Sharjah will host the third test from January 17.
