SriLanka win first Test and stun Pakistan

Rangana Herath bowled a dream spell and took 4-15 and changed the course of th match completely.Pakistan where cruising along and it looked at the end of the third day that the match would end before the lunch on the day four.The famous saying that Cricket is a funny game was apt since the game end before the lunch on Day 4 but the result was quite unexpected as SriLanka pulled of an improbable win.

The Srilanka bowling unit was totally charged up with young Rangana Herath leading from the front.Mendis and Thushara chipped with 2 wickets each which helped them to reduce Pakistan from 71 for 2 to a mere 117 all out.This means that Srilanka go 1 up in the three match test series.

Srilanka lead the 3 match test series with 1-0
