Rawalpindi: The return of Test cricket to Pakistan was somewhat spoiled by unfavourable weather conditions, with only one innings possible from either side in the Rawalpindi Test.

A full day's action was possible on Day 5 on Sunday, and Pakistan batsmen Abid Ali (109*) and Babar Azam (102*) capitalized to bring up their maiden tons at home.

For Abid Ali, the day was extra special as he became the first batsman to score a ton both on ODI debut as well as Test debut.

Earlier, Dhananjaya de Silva scored his sixth Test century.

Sri Lanka declared the innings at 308/6.

Day 4 had been abandoned without a ball being bowled.
