Dubai: Pakistan coach Dav Whatmore on Monday said that losing the toss was key to his team's defeat to Sri Lanka in the second Test in Dubai as a low first innings score proved to be decisive.

Sri Lankan captain Angelo Mathews won the toss and decided to bowl first, getting Pakistan out for a paltry 165.

Sri Lanka, led by Mahela Jayawardene's 129, posted 338 to gain a big 223-run lead. Pakistan fared better in the second innings to score 359 but it only provided a meager 137-run target for their opponents.
