As Sri Lanka somehow missed a golden opportunity to press for an outright win over Pakistan due to poor batting show in second innings, country's former players are still backing the team to lift the trophy.
"What a day #PakvsSL Fought hard @OfficialSLC Did lots of things right.. 119 runs is a lot of runs !!Backing you here!! Let’s take this home" wrote Russel Arnold on his twitter handle.
"Wow What a Test match in Dubai. If SL can get 1 wicket before new ball it will be a huge bonus" wrote Thilan Samaraweera.
Pakistan need 119 more runs to draw the series on the final day, with five wickets in hand.
