Sri Lanka vs England 1st Test live Cricket Streaming Rangana Herath is playing his final Test
Chamari Athapaththu (Sri Lanka):Sri Lanka will also look up to their captain to lead from the front and get runs early in the innings so as to provide the middle order with some cushion. We couldn't give him a really good farewell in his last game, so we apologise for that. "We were consistent throughout the four days", England skipper Joe Root said.
"Chandimal's injury is grade one, and it will take 10 to 14 days". "And to be as consistent as that throughout a whole Test match, which is something we haven't always got right in the past, especially away from home, has been really pleasing".
"First innings, our batting was poor".
"From our position at lunchtime on the first day we've been in control of the whole game", Root told Sky Sports.
England posted 342 and 322 declared. An LBW appeal when Jennings was on 58 was turned down and Sri Lanka chose - erroneously it turned out - not to review.
Kusal Mendis added 46 runs with Mathews for the fourth wicket, but he too could not convert a good start into a big innings and fell for 45. But Jennings was firm at his end, and he banished the disappointment of a mediocre series against India by bringing up a half-century off 111 balls.
Set a gargantuan 462 for victory, the hosts ended the morning session on 98 for 3, after their openers had earlier batted out the first hour of the fourth day.
But both fell after attacking shots, with Kaushal leg before trying to sweep Leach for 30 and Karunaratne caught and bowled by Ali for 26 and skipped down the pitch for an attempted heave. Herath then returned to remove Root who offered a thin edge to wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella. Chandimal, who was nursing a groin strain, could miss the second test at Pallekele next week.
Joe Biden to lead 2020 Democratic race for White House
Trump said he "could fire everybody right now, but I don't want to stop it, because politically I don't like stopping it". Given the GOP hold on the Senate and White House , the chance of any of these things getting far seems close to zero.
Herath walked in to a standing ovation, and another when he was last man out for 5. Praises England for playing well. England hadn't won four previous tests here. Debutant Ben Foakes showed great application to share very vital stands with Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, and Adil Rashid and then the bowlers took over.
"Test cricket is grinding".
It was incredible to face their quality spinners.
"It won't sink in until afterwards, when I speak to family and stuff". The big thing for me is just making my debut, being able to say you're an England test cricketer.
In Sri Lanka's first innings, it lasted barely two sessions - 68 overs - in scoring 203. I might go to my club and may play some first-class cricket.
Thisara Perera and Rangana Herath, who was playing his final worldwide fixture, took two wickets each.
