Rangana Herath Becomes 4th Fastest Bowler to Take 400 Test Wickets

PTV Sports Pakistan vs Sri Lanka Live Streaming first Test Day 3

Nuwan Pradeep (0) was the final batsmen to be dismissed when Hasan Ali (1-21) castled him with only Niroshan Dickwella (40 not out) showing some fight in helping Sri Lanka post 138 and set a target of 136 runs for Pakistan in the final innings. The technology returned a verdict of "umpire's call", which no longer sees the unsuccessful team lose one of their two reviews per innings.

Following those dismissals, Sri Lanka appeared the likelier side to lock the match down.

Before lunch on day four, Pakistan was trailing the Sri Lankan first innings total of 419 by 79 runs with two wickets intact.

For the home side to clinch the Test, they perhaps need Sarfraz to play a substantial knock.

After four days of tiresome cricket, this match saw a frenetic fifth day when 15 wickets fell for just 183 runs.

Speaking about the Sri Lanka's second innings, the coach said that he believed that one good inning from top order would taken Pakistan to the finish-line, but unfortunately it did not happen.

His Mercedes team-mate and title rival Nico Rosberg had collided with Sebastian Vettel at the start and fallen to the back.

Chasing a target of 136, Pakistan never got going and the combination of Herath and off-spinner Dilruwan Perera took advantage of a tired and sluggish fifth-day pitch to send the hosts packing for the just 114 runs.

It was not to be though as in the very next over, Herath trapped Abbas lbw for a duck to hand Pakistan their first loss in Abu Dhabi.

Meanwhile Sri Lankan spinner Rangana Herath achieved a colossal feat during the game.

Sri Lanka, who resumed at 69-4, lost their last six wickets for 69 runs.

Rangana Herath has become the first left-arm spinner to notch 400 wickets in test cricket.

In the process, he lifted his career tally to 101 test wickets against Pakistan and 400 overall.

Shortly after the incident occurred, passengers on board the flight posted images of the damaged engine on social media. One video shows material hanging from the engine as the plane flies on above the ocean. "It was a whiplash moment".

It was then left to Shah who on consecutive deliveries dismissed Perera for six and then had Herath caught by close in fielder to complete his fourth consecutive five wicket haul in as many Tests.

Rangana Herath became the 14th bowler to take 400 wickets.

Pakistan are 5/4 with Sky Bet for victory, Sri Lanka can be backed at 4/1 and the draw is on offer at 6/5.

- This is also Sri Lanka's smallest margin of win.

Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed called the defeat "disappointing".

Herath was named Man of the Match, and said: "I have no idea (why he takes wickets against Pakistan)".

The visiting Australian team will be playing for "pride" in the remaining series, as stated by Australian opener David Warner . Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav put on 78 for the fourth wicket until Adam Zampa got some revenge on his chief tormentor.

Dilruwan Perera replaced Dickwella and took 33 balls to get off the mark. I was so happy with the remarkable achievement (400 wickets). We'll try and bounce back in the next game.
