Sri Lanka set to win a historic test

Sri Lanka were dismissed for 96 in the third innings of the test against Pakistan in the ongoing test at Dubai {DSC}. At the end of the fourth day of the test Pakistan had scored 198 for 5 and need 119 runs to win the test. If Sri Lanka wins this test, it  would provide the fourth  occasion of a team winning the test after being dismissed all out for a total less than 99 in  the third innings of a test. Two wins of these three occasions were in 1888  and 1896 respectively and  third win was in 1902. Thus if Sri Lanka carves a  win in this test, the win in this category of stats will be after 115 years.
