Sri Lanka vs England Live Cricket Score, 1st Test, Galle

Rangana Herath claimed his 100th scalp in Galle with Joe Root’s wicket

Sri Lanka's Rangana Herath celebrates with Kusal Mendis and captain Dinesh Chandimal after taking the wicket of England's captain Joe Root

England had secured a first innings lead of 139 and on Thursday an unbeaten 146 by Keaton Jennings, his first century since a ton on his 2016 debut, allowed Root to declare at 322 for six.

"We knew we were going to have to work hard and there'd be periods we'd have to be very patient and trust our plans, and the fact we managed to do that and see it work is really pleasing".

Sri Lanka's Kusal Mendis plays a shot as England's wicketkeeper Ben Foakes watches during the fourth day of the first test cricket match between Sri Lanka and England in Galle, Sri Lanka, Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

England's debutant man-of-the-match Ben Foakes described it as a surreal moment in his career and added that his earlier tours to Sri Lanka helped him read the conditions better."It's been a surreal few days for me and it feels like a dream". If the pitches look drastically different we can adapt to that with a different XI.

Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath, playing his last test, finished with two wickets apiece.

The Englishmen are now having an outing in Sri Lanka for a complete series that includes five ODIs, one T20Is and three Tests.

JACK Leach made the breakthrough for England and then claimed another two wickets as the tourists beat Sri Lanka by 211 runs to claim their first overseas Test win in more than two years.

Dhananjaya de Silva was dismissed in the last over before lunch for 21 as Ben Stokes found the outside edge of the bat and the catch was snapped up by Root at first slip.




Kaushal was leg before sweeping Leach for 30 and Karunaratne skipped down the pitch and was caught and bowled by Ali for 26.

After the break Kusal Mendis hit Leach for four over his head but attempting a repeat the next ball skied the ball to Ali, departing for an otherwise impressive 46.

Karunaratne enjoyed a slice of luck on 16 when he edged Moeen, but Stokes grassed an easy catch at slip.

Jos Buttler smashed a quick 35 before being caught off Herath while Foakes belted out 37 before falling to spinner Akila Dananjaya. Nasser Hussain's men lost by an innings in 2001 while the last time England played there, in 2012, Herath bagged 12 to spin them out of the contest. From 2011 the support from my wife, kids and my immediate family members, I really appreciate the support and without that I don't I could have got to where I am right now.

"The seamers might not get the praise they deserve throughout this game, they built a lot of pressure".

We need to regroup and looking forward to the next game.

"It is very disappointing with the way we got out - getting out to the traps they set".
