Left-arm bowler Rangana Herath, 40, bowled his final delivery in Test cricket during the third day of Sri Lanka’s first Test against England in Galle on Thursday.
He ended his 93-Test career with 433 wickets at an average of 28.07 and a strike rate of 60. He will be officially retired after conclusion of the match.
He has now moved up to eighth position (jointly with Stuart Broad) in the list of highest wicket-takers in Test cricket history. Muttiah Muralitharan, Shane Warne, Anil Kumble, James Anderson, Glenn McGrath, Courtney Walsh and Kapil Dev are named above Herath and Broad in the list.
Until retirement from limited-overs cricket, Herath had played 71 ODIs with 74 wickets and 17 T20Is with 18 wickets.
