  • Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test live Cricket Streaming Rangana Herath is playing his final Test

England thumped Sri Lanka by 211 runs inside four days at Galle without the rested Stuart Broad and Jonny Bairstow, who could be fit for next week's second Test after rolling his ankle while playing football.

England and Sri Lanka took a point apiece from their opening match at the Women's World T20, after heavy rain in St Lucia forced the abandonment of the first match at the Daren Sammy Stadium. England had a successful time in color clothes in the island nation.

Although Sri Lanka was well beaten in Galle, Herath - who intends to play on in first-class cricket - spoke with optimism about the team's future.

Rangana Herath - 5/10 - It was not the farewell display or the result he would have wished for, but removing Root in both innings in your final test is not bad a way to bow out from Test cricket.

At 103 for five on the first morning Joe Root's side seemed to be heading for more disappointment, but fine centuries in either innings from debutant Ben Foakes and opener Keaton Jennings provided the resistance and a three-strong spin attack flourished with 16 of the 20 required wickets.

Kaushal Silva was the first one to start the wickets count for England followed with his partner Dimuth Karunaratne.

They had reached 144 when Leach made another vital intervention, having Kusal Mendis (45) caught by Moeen.


Soon afterwards Angelo Mathews - dropped on 18 by James Anderson - went for 53, caught by Jos Buttler at midwicket with Ali again the wicket-taker.

This earned England it's biggest win against Sri Lanka in terms of runs, eclipsing a 137-run win at Lord's in 1991.

Instead, Moeen starred as his 4-70 took his match figures to 8-137 and secured England's first away Test victory since triumphing in Bangladesh in October 2016.

Credits to some fantabulous performances from Jack Leach (2/41 and 3/60) and Moeen Ali (4/55 and 4/71) for uprooting the Lankan wickets in both innings of the contest.

A brilliant century from Ben Foakes, who was also the Man of the Match on his debut, helped Sri Lanka gain a huge lead in the first innings. Unfortunately, Rangana Herath signed-off his global career in a losing cause and also he was the lastone to fall for the hosts in the match. "We will work very hard for that second Test match and hopefully back up a good performance".

Sri Lanka captain, Dinesh Chandimal said:It was a really good wicket, our batting was below-par and if you displayed such kind of a batting, you can't stay in the game.
