England thrash hosts Sri Lanka in first Test

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

England had secured a first-innings lead of 139 thanks to a century on debut by Ben Foakes - man of the match - and a formidable spin attack led by Ali and assisted ably by Leach and Adil Rashid restricting Sri Lanka to 203 in reply.

"It was a very good wicket but our batting was below-par", Chandimal said, adding it was not the farewell that he and his team mates had imagined for Herath.

"We played some really good stuff".

"Chandimal's injury is grade one, and it will take 10 to 14 days".

'Credit goes to England, they played some outstanding cricket.

"I have only watched Keaton Jennings live in two test matches and he has got a hundred in both I must be his lucky charm!", former England great Allan Lamb said on Twitter.

"We're really proud of him and really proud of the rest of the guys".

"When you play Test cricket, you need to understand how people are going to get you out - even at club cricket you need to understand that", Hathurusingha said.

Kaushal Silva and Dimuth Karunaratne had denied them for more than an hour for a 51-run stand and might well have batted the entire session had they focused on defence rather being tempted into more aggressive strokes. Dhananjaya de Silva, for example, was out in the over before lunch on day four - an over that began just in the nick of time, but might not have done so had Sri Lanka's batsmen delayed during the previous over that Joe Root delivered specifically to speed up the match.

Last out was silver fox Rangana Herath, cricket's most successful left-arm spinner, run out for five in his swansong before retirement. Sri Lanka failed to give him a winning farewell but the cricketer made sure that England earned the final wicket to seal the last game of his career.

Mathews hit three boundaries in his patient 52, silencing questions about his fitness and running between the wickets, but fell to Moeen off the first ball after the tea break.

In between, Leach had bowled captain Dinesh Chandimal with a gripping beauty, and Moeen had enticed Niroshan Dickwella into edging to slip, where Stokes took the first and best of his three catches, making up for an easier chance he'd dropped earlier in the day. He was followed into the pavilion by Akila Dananjaya for 8.

England's varied attack, which features three seamers and three spinners, probed persistently through the morning as captain Root employed attacking field placements.
