85.1 - A Rashid to R Herath

Leg spinner half volley, outside off stump on the front foot reverse sweeping, to third man for 1 run, fielded by Stokes, by Foakes. What a way to finish your Test match career. Rangana Herath scurries through for the second but he's no young pup now and Stokes has a bullet throw right over the top of the stumps. Out by the smallest of margins with the bat on the line and England win by a huge margin of 211 runs.From start to finish the England team have been brilliant with bat and ball. Galle is usually a fortress for Sri Lanka but the heavy rain and lack of sun made the pitch less favourable to their attack and the spinners found it very difficult to break through. Along with that their batsmen did not perform as they would have hoped and giving up such a big lead after the first innings was always going to be trouble. Credit has to go to the two centurions, Ben Foakes and Keaton Jennings. In both innings England needed someone to step up and that is exactly what they both did.We now head to Pallekele for the second Test and Sri Lanka will need to make at least one change with Herath now retiring and the fitness of their captain Dinesh Chandimal also a worry. Join us on the 14th to see who comes out on top in the next game in the series.
