Making their way back to the dressing room as the drizzle intensified, Pakistan's players must have wondered how on earth they lost the Test match after scoring 451 in the first innings. Whether it was their Test-match rustiness or an outcome of over-caution in their second innings, Pakistan simply didn't maintain their standard of play over five days. Against a team as buoyant as Mathews' Sri Lanka, you cannot afford to do that. Over the following days, Pakistan's spirits were further dampened by news of Saeed Ajmal being reported for a suspect action. It is a cliche that Pakistan are at their most dangerous when they have their backs to the wall, but Misbah-ul-Haq's team will have to ...

Sri Lanka hang on for thrilling draw 16 June 2014, 19:46 The First Test between England and Sri Lanka finished in a thrilling draw after the hosts grabbed six wickets in the final session of the fifth day at Lord's on Monday. James Anderson bowled his heart out to finish with 4-25, but the match went down to the wire when the ninth wicket fell off the first delivery of the final over as Rangana Herath was given out caught behind off Stuart Broad. Replays showed the ball coming off his glove after the hand came off the bat handle, but Sri Lanka did not use one of the two reviews they had in hand. Last man, Nuwan Pradeep, saw out three deliveries, and was then trapped in front by Broad. The batsmen immediately reviewed the decision, and a huge inside edge was evident on Hot Spot, resulting in the call to be overturned. The final ball was edged, but fell short of second slip. Earlier, the match was sliding inexorably towards a draw on Monday, with the tourists still 226 runs short of an unlikely victory when ...
Eng bolstered by Ballance maiden ton 15 June 2014, 19:42 Gary Ballance scored his maiden test century to help England extend their lead to 390 at stumps on the fourth day of the First Test against Sri Lanka at Lord's on Sunday. Earlier, Sri Lanka seamer Shaminda Eranga took three wickets in quick succession as England collapsed. England were 117 for five in their second innings at tea, a lead of 239, after Eranga had dismissed Sam Robson, skipper Alastair Cook and Ian Bell. Left-arm spinner Rangana Herath followed up by removing Joe Root, whose unbeaten 200 had been the cornerstone of England's first innings 575 for nine declared, and debutant Moeen Ali. Gary Ballance was 25 not out and Matt Prior 13 not out. A docile pitch had so far largely frustrated both attacks in the first match of this two-test series. But Eranga defied the sluggish surface with a dynamic spell of three wickets for three runs in 21 balls after lunch. Cook was caught behind for 28 before Australia-born Robson completed an unsuccessf ...
England v Sri Lanka, 1st Investec Test, Lord's, 2nd day Root double-ton exhausts Sri Lanka The Report by David Hopps June 13, 2014 Dip your bread, Joe Root will have been told since childhood on days like this. Like Oliver Twist, he dipped his bread and then asked to dip it some more. Sri Lanka did not possess a bowler with the capability to scold him. The outcome was that he became the fourth-youngest England batsman to hit a double-century, a poster boy for a new generation. This was a bountiful Lord's batting surface and the Sri Lanka attack had serious limitations, but Root's response over eight-and-a-half hours was impeccable. There was a uniformity in his progress. He reached his hundred just before the close on the first day. His 150 followed from the last ball of the session, another clip through midwicket, an area where he was highly productive, this time off the left-arm spinner Rangana Herath. Herath, too, was lapped for the runs that brought up his 200, an immediate declaration, and an infecti ...
"Rangana Herath, following in a fine tradition of portly Sri Lanka cricketers, continues to tweak after lunch. Slip, short leg, short cover, with the gum-chewing Plunkett doing all he can to get the ball away. Dance, swipe, block, heave. Four through mid-wicket from the final ball." God, I've missed the amusing text commentary of the test cricket on BBC Sport website :-)
SL VS ENG 4th ODI England won the toss & elected to bowl first. Dinesh Chandimal and Rangana Herath are replaced by Kusal Perera and Ajantha Mendis..!!
England v Sri Lanka, 4th ODI, Lord's Teams news Angelo Mathews suggested Lahiru Thirimanne will be given a longer run at opener after the last match, but they may be tempted to bring in Kusal Perera into the side, displacing Thirimanne down the order. The visitors will hope to play two spinners, but have Thisara Perera in reserve if the conditions are more suited to quick bowling. Sri Lanka (probable): 1 Tillakaratne Dilshan, 2 Lahiru Thirimanne, 3 Kumar Sangakkara (wk), 4 Mahela Jayawardene 5. Dinesh Chandimal, 6. Angelo Mathews (capt.), 7. Ashan Priyanjan, 8. Nuwan Kulasekara, 9 Sachithra Senanayake, 10 Rangana Herath/Thisara Perera, 11. Lasith Malinga Pitch and conditions The recent T20 double header saw the wicket go very slow for the second 40 overs and several Championship matches have seen some low first-innings totals but Lord's wickets for internationals are generally excellent.

Sri Lanka introduce Rangana Herath into the attack LIVE SCORE
Rangana Herath bowled Sri Lanka into the semi-finals of the World T20, taking 5 for 3 against New Zealand:
31 March 2014 would be remembered as a day in T20 international cricket when three 'lands' crashed out of the World Cup - England, Holland and New Zealand. Meanwhile, Holland became an associate team that trashed three teams out of the tournament - Zimbabwe, Ireland and England. And indeed this day would be remembered for magical figures of Rangana Herath. PS - Masjid dha de, Mandir dha de, dha de jo kucch dainda Par kisi da dil na dhain, Rab dilaan vich rehnda. (Demolish temples, demolish mosques, demolish anything you want. But never demolish a heart - Almighty resides there) - Bulle Shah.

Herath fifer takes Sri Lanka into semis March 31, 2014 10:08 pm A remarkable spell of bowling by left arm spinner Rangana Herath (3.3-2-3-5) saw Sri Lanka pull off a remarkable 59-run victory against New Zealand to book their berth in the semifinals of the ICC World Twenty20 tournament. Playing his first match of the tournament proper, the spinner remarkably claimed five wickets for three runs as New Zealand managed only 60 in 15.3 overs. With the victory, Sri Lanka joined South Africa in the last four from Group One. New Zealand began their chase one batsman short after all-rounder Corey Anderson dislocated a finger trying to take a catch. Herath took four wickets in his first three overs to leave the Kiwis reeling at 29 for five in the eighth over. Kane Williams (42), the only Kiwi batsman to manage double digits, tried his best to offer some resistance but could not stop New Zealand from folding for their lowest total in 20-over cricket. Leading Sri Lanka in the absence of Dinesh Chandimal, who served ...

Pakistan v Sri Lanka 2013-14 Pace attack's image has transformed - Lakmal Sri Lanka's pace attack arrived in the UAE with a poor reputation, but two Tests into the series, they may have already transformed their image, fast bowler Suranga Lakmal believes. Lakmal, Shaminda Eranga and Nuwan Pradeep had been instrumental in the Dubai victory that has seen their team achieve an unassailable series lead, having taken seven wickets for 132 between them in the first innings of that match. Fast bowling had appeared Sri Lanka's most conspicuous frailty before the series, and Rangana Herath's left-arm spin expected to be the major attacking threat, yet it is on the fast bowlers' tireless efforts that the team has achieved the biggest advantage in the field.

Younis, Misbah centuries spur Pakistan to 327-4 Pakistan rode on centuries by Younis Khan and captain Misbah-ul-Haq to finish the second day of the First Test on a healthy 327-4 and 123-run lead against Sri Lanka on Wednesday. Khan hit 19 fours and a six in his 23rd Test century, an unblemished 136 off 198 balls, before he was bowled off an inside edge off Shaminda Eranga (2-63). Misbah ground out an unbeaten 105 off 250 balls with 13 fours and will resume the third day with Asad Shafiq unbeaten on 12. Misbah's and Khan's 218-run stand has placed Sri Lanka in a tight corner as their bowlers struggled to contain Pakistan's two most experienced batsmen. Sri Lanka twice missed dismissing Misbah on 69 when Mahela Jayawardene dropped a sitter, and on 76 they didn't go for a TV referral when fast bowler Suranga Lakmal (1-84) could have earned an lbw verdict after onfield umpire Richard Kettleborough of England turned down a strong appeal. Sri Lanka started off well by claiming two wickets inside the first *** . ...
Cricket: Ton-up Younis, Misbah defy Sri Lanka in First Test AFP - 56 mins ago Younis Khan hit a brilliant hundred and Misbah-ul Haq a chancy fifty as Pakistan established a lead on the second day of the First Test in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday. Younis was unbeaten on 103 for his 23rd hundred and Misbah was 74 not out as Pakistan reached 251-3 at tea in reply to Sri Lanka's first innings total of 204. Pakistan now lead by 47 runs and with Younis and Misbah sharing 168 for the unbroken fourth wicket stand, Pakistan look for a match-winning edge. Younis hit spinner Rangana Herath for his 13th boundary to complete his hundred, taking just 47 balls for his second fifty runs. He has also hit a six. Younis equalled Javed Miandad's record of 23 centuries, the third highest for Pakistan in the list topped by Inzamam-ul Haq (25) and Mohammad Yousuf (24). Misbah had luck on his side as he was dropped by Mahela Jayawardene when on 69, as he tried to paddle sweep Herath and the fielder moving to leg-slip failed to hold an ...

Rangana Herath has 200 test wickets 169 in ASIA!! :P 136 at HOME!!! :P 51 vs PAKISTAN!!! :P
Sri Lanka recovered from an absolute rut to give their innings some respectability through Angelo Mathews’ controlled aggression. Otherwise it would have been a bizarre total. If Pakistan’s comeback was mind-blowing then Sri Lanka’s collapse was pathetic. Junaid and Bhatti made the Lankan batsmen to toil but there had been some poor shot selection by the Lankan batsmen. I blame the Lankan officials for not giving enough importance to Test cricket for this. So far, this year, they have played just 3 Test matches which is absolutely unacceptable. How badly the arena of Test cricket missed the magic of Mahela and Sangakkara! If you have noticed Mahela’s presence at the crease then you would have seen how shaky he was with the bat. Why? It was nothing but lack of playing Test cricket. Again, the kind of stroke Sanga executed, which brought his downfall, was sure to remain on the ground rather than in the air only if Sanga had played enough of Test cricket. No matter how bigger a legend you are if you ...
Too many retirements The year 2013 dawned and starred at the death of Tony Greig, Michael Hussey’s retirement announcement, change in ODI rules and the historic India-Pakistan series. Little did it know that more heart-breaks await. Summing up From an Australian collapse to an Australian victory. That pretty much sums up cricket in 2013. The cricketing year 2013 was a complete package – a whole load of retirements, double Ashes, South Africa becoming the top Test nation, an Australian collapse and revival, IPL and CLT20 continues, match fixing, corruption, several greats inducted into ICC Hall of fame, count down to the 2015 World Cup and many more. Recap A lonely walk to the middle amidst emotional spectators at a distance and a salute to the pitch in his own style, Sachin Tendulkar departed the arena emotionally. His farewell speech left a lump in every fan’s throat. 24 years, 200 Tests, 100 international centuries, 34000 runs and many more achieved by this little man. 2013 – a year of retiremen ...

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Talha will get the chance make up for nearly five years of disappointment in the First Test against Sri Lanka in Abu Dhabi. Talha made his debut in March 2009 in a Test against Pakistan in Lahore which had to be abandoned when the visiting team's bus was attacked by terrorists. Talha is is joined in the Pakistan line-up by recalled fast bowler Umar Gul and all-rounder Mohammad Hafeez whose three centuries in the one-day international series in the UAE against Sri Lanka earned him his call-up. Gul is back in the Pakistan Test picture for the first time since the series with South Africa in February and had been out with injury until the ODI series with Sri Lanka. Injured fast bowler Mohammad Irfan misses out against Sri Lanka for the Test series but has travelled to the UAE to do rehabilitation work with physio Dale Naylor after suffering a hairline fracture to his hip bone. Pakistan's batting will revolve around the experienced pair of Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan while the ...
First Test: Pakistan have won the toss and elected to field first. Ahmad Shahzad and Bilawal Bhatti making their debuts. Mahela Jayawardene and Rangana Herath back in the Sri Lankan line up.
The Rangana Herath v Saeed Ajmal dynamic has already been played down by the teams, but, with two of the finest spinners in the world about to play on responsive surfaces, it is the most exciting head-to-head of the tour. The last time they played in the same series, they ended up as the top wicket-takers, with the same number of wickets. Herath had the better average and economy rate, but Ajmal struck in fewer deliveries. The Sri Lankan spinner weaves a web and waits for his prey to entangle themselves in it, while the Pakistan bowler steals close and pounces. It is a collision of slow-bowling philosophies, and it has the potential to be the defining factor in the series.
First Test between Pakistan and Sri Lanka tomorrow in Abu Dhabi. Here are some stats for you courtesy Cricket South ASIA - Kumar Sangakkara averages a staggering 89.23 against Pakistan, and 95.5 when Ajmal is part of the Pakistani bowling line up. - Ajmal has dismissed Sangakkara only 3 times in 9 tests. - Pakistan have won the two most recent test matches in Abu Dhabi, and drawn the other two. - Rangana Herath has picked up 51 wickets against Pakistan - the most he has picked up against any opposition. - Last six tests between Pakistan and Sri Lanka: Pak won 1, SL won 1, Drawn 4 - Sri Lanka's front line bowler Suranga Lakmal averages 65.75 in tests per wicket. He has never taken more than 4 wickets in a test match.
Ace Sri Lankan spinner Rangana Herath is hoping lack of Tests will not affect his bowling in the first of three Tests against Pakistan starting in Abu Dhabi from Tuesday.
Bangladesh Cricket Review 2013: 2013 starts with BPL-2 where winner was Dhaka Gladiators. BPL-2 was a positive Tournament during the Matches.

THIS DAY 30TH DEC THAT YEAR 2011 Sri Lanka's First Test win in South Africa ended a spell of a year and a half without a victory in the format - since Muttiah Muralitharan retired. After losing by an innings in Centurion, Sri Lanka arrived in Durban, where they put up 338 in the first innings, in the face of an inspired performance by debutant fast bowler Marchant de Lange, who took seven wickets. South Africa collapsed in their reply, to the unlikely left-arm pace and spin pair of Chanaka Welegedara and Rangana Herath, Kumar Sangakkara scored his first hundred in the country, and South Africa then fell in a heap again (Jacques Kallis got his first pair in Tests), losing by 208 runs.
The 35-year-old left-armer is seen as Sri Lanka's answer to Pakistan's off-spinner Saeed Ajmal in the Tests but Rangana Herath said he was not concerned with the hype.

Sachin Tendulkar was the last remaining player who made his Test debut in the 1980s. You're right about Shivnarine Chanderpaul- he made his Test debut in March 1994, and reached 150 caps in Mumbai just as Tendulkar reached 200. Only six other men who have played Tests this year made their debuts in the 1990s, and one of those (Ray Price) has also announced his retirement. The others are Jacques Kallis (Test debut in 1995-96), Mahela Jayawardene and Harbhajan Singh (both 1997-98), and Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan (both 1999-2000).

The first match on Sunday at the same venue was rained off, with the Black Caps on 13-1 off 4.2 overs in reply to the home team's 288-9.

Winning start key - AB 2013-10-29 Sharjah - South African captain AB de Villiers vowed to attack Pakistan for a winning start at the opening one-day match in Sharjah on Wednesday despite his team being down two key playmakers. The Proteas are missing both star batsman Hashim Amla and spearhead Dale Steyn for the first two matches of the five match one-day series. But De Villiers insists his team are brimming with confidence, especially after they managed to square the Test series 1-1, winning the second showdown in Dubai by an innings and 92 runs. "We didn't have much time for preparation so its really up for us mentally to get prepared but it's important to have a good start, get used to the conditions and adapt as quickly as possible and attack them in areas where they are not strong," said De Villiers on Tuesday. "Dale needed some rest but hopefully he will join us in good stead," said De Villiers of the paceman who returned home for rest but will be available from the third match in Abu Dhabi on Novem ...

In the ICC test rankings for bowlers, there are only 4 spinners: Rangana Herath, Saeed Ajmal, Graeme Swann and R Ashwin. Which is your favourite and why?
No logic in opposing use of two new balls in ODIs It looks like a classic case of trying to fix something that is not broken. It is understood the subcontinent lobby is not happy with the two new-ball rule for one-dayers and tried its best for a recommendation to get it scrapped at this week’s ICC Chief Executives Meeting in Dubai. Their fear is that it affects spinners, their strong point. One wonders if these Boards consulted their bowlers. Good chance, they didn’t. The opposition ironically comes at a time when slow bowlers are dominating in the 50-over game, the proof being the ICC ODI bowlers’ rankings where four in the top-five are spinners. Big advantage India are said to be the biggest opponents of the rule, when their spinner, Ravindra Jadeja, is No 2 in the rankings. West Indies’ Sunil Narine is No 1, Pakistan’s Saeed Ajmal is third and Sri Lanka’s Rangana Herath fifth. England’s Steve Finn is in the only pacer in the top five, at fourth. For the BCCI, the fact that their biggest o ...
Team and Match Preview Continue: Kandurata Maroons One of the last teams to make it to the tournament, Kandurata hogged the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The sordid saga involving Kumar Sangakkara and the officials of Sri Lanka cricket (SLC) were the major news items across the cricketing world. An angry Sangakkara blasted the officials while reaffirming his loyalty to his home team. With a host of talented internationals in their fray and pitches which should help their style of play, it will be no surprise if the team turn out to be the dark horses of the tournament. With quality in their ranks such as Sangakkara himself, and the presence of young heads like Lahiru Jayaratne and Shehan Jayasuriya, Kandurata will quietly fancy their chances. The Stars: Kumar Sangakkara, Upul Tharanga, Nuwan Kulasekara, Ajanta Mendis and Rangana Herath.
Sangakkara up against his IPL team: Match Facts September 17, 2013 Start time 2000 (1430 GMT) While this match represents a Champions League debut for Kandurata Maroons and Sunrisers Hyderabad, both teams will know just how vital it is to hit the ground running in what could potentially be a short tournament for either side. Both teams need to win at least two of the three qualification matches to have a strong chance of making the main draw. This will be the first time these sides face each another, so Kumar Sangakkara will play an influential role in providing some insight on the inner workings of Hyderabad. Thisara Perera can also shed some light on Kandurata, as a number of his compatriots make up the roster. Both teams have strong bowling departments that include several international players. Kandurata possess some of the best T20 players in the world, and feature a spin attack which includes Rangana Herath, Ajantha Mendis and Suraj Randiv, backed by the ever-dependable Nuwan Kulasekera.

Sri Lanka pulls off a massive victory beating India by 161 runs in the West Indies Tri-Nation Series Tuesday. India won the toss and set Sri Lanka to bat at Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica. Mahela Jayawardena with 107 and Upul Tharanga with a massive 174 out of 159 balls took Sri Lanka to 348/1 setting a formidable target for India. India in reply was bundled up for 187 in 44.5 overs with Rangana Herath taking 3 wickets and Lasith Malinga and Sachithra Senanayake each taking two wickets.

Match Commentary Monday 17 Jun, The Oval Mitchell Johnson looked good with the ball today, picking up 3 wickets for 48 runs from his 10 overs. Xavier Doherty bowled with good control to concede just 30 runs from his 10 overs, however Australia will be perhaps more worried than pleased with the amount of turn he was getting, given that Rangana Herath is in the opposition ranks. If Sri Lanka manage to restrict Australia to 164 runs or less, they will go through top of Group A. A classy 84 from Mahela Jayawardene propels Sri Lanka to a decent total of 253 here at The Oval. The veteran looked in fine form, rarely offering a sniff of a chance to the Australian attack. His 50 run stand with Dinesh Chandimal came from just 46 balls and he provided real impetus to the innings. You would feel that that this total is chaseable but the problem for Australia is that they to do it in 29.1 overs if they wish to progress to the semi-finals.

England v Sri Lanka, Champions Trophy, Group A, The Oval. England target semi-final berth. Match Facts June 13, 2013, The Oval Start time 1pm (1200 GMT) England were too rigid, too slow and too one-dimensional at Edgbaston - probably why they thumped Australia by 48 runs. The familiar concerns over England's shortcomings were rolled out at lunch on Saturday, only to be wheeled away at the close. England have a knack for getting it right on the night, particularly in ODIs at home, and should they get the job done against Sri Lanka, they will be in the semi-finals. The scaremongering will emerge again over England's batting - how will they survive Lasith Malinga's toe-crushers? How will they find a way to score from Rangana Herath, who put England in a spin last March? They've never seen Sachithra Senanayake before. Their blasters with the bat are no good against slow bowling. You can see it is quite easy to descend into debilitating nervousness about the England line up. But England have their plans, Engla ...
CADRIFF: New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka by one wicket in a dramatic Champions Trophy group A match in Cardiff on Sunday. The Black Caps messed up a simple chase of Sri Lanka's 138 all out and were reduced to 122-8, before the last-wicket pair of Tim Southee and Mitchell McClenaghan saw them through in the 37th over. eft-arm seamer McClenaghan set up the victory with 4-43 after Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat, but Malinga stole the thunder with 4-34 that almost secured his team an improbable victory. The dramatic win helped New Zealand end a six-match losing streak against the Sri Lankans and claim full points in their first match of the eight-nation tournament. New Zealand were cruising at 48-1 when Sri Lanka hit back with three wickets for one run in the space of eight deliveries. Malinga triggered the collapse with a full toss that crashed into Kane Williamson's pads. Umpire Rod Tucker upheld an appeal for leg-before. Ross Taylor was leg-before to spinner Rangana Herath for zero, before Martin ...
Rangana Herath comes in early. Can he do what Dan Vettori did in his first over? One slip in place
ICC Champions Trophy Preview: Buoyant New Zealand gear up for Sri Lanka's spin trial. Cardiff: New Zealand are preparing to face a spin barrage from Sri Lanka when the two sides meet in the Champions Trophy in Cardiff on Sunday. New Zealand go into the tournament after a morale-boosting 2-1 one-day series win over hosts England, but Brendon McCullum's side know Sri Lanka will throw up new challenges. "We could conceivably be facing 30-35 overs of spin," Black Caps coach Mike Hesson said ahead of the group A game. "We need to be proactive against it." Sri Lanka's spin attack includes four capable tweakers in Sachitra Senanayake, Jeevan Mendis, Rangana Herath and Tillakaratne Dilshan. Unorthodox slow bowler Ajantha Mendis was not picked for the tournament. With sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga and steady seamer Nuwan Kulasekara also in the ranks, Sri Lanka have their options covered for what are expected to be good batting conditions in Cardiff. India and South Africa played a high-scoring match at the ...
2013 Champions Trophy: Meet the teams Sri Lanka: The men from the island nation, who were joint winners in 2002, are playing under a new captain- Angelo Mathews. In Mahela Jayawardene and Kumar Sangakkara- the men who preceded Mathews, it can be said that the Lankans have the ‘proper’ batsmen to handle the heat in England. Lasith Malinga is pretty much the most dangerous bowler in world cricket; and Nuwan Kulasekara’s nagging line and length should come in handy. They kick off their campaign against New Zealand on June 9. Squad: Angelo Mathews (captain), Dinesh Chandimal, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kusal Perera, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Lahiru Thirimanne, Jeevan Mendis, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath, Nuwan Kulasekara, Shaminda Eranga, Sachithra Senanayake, Chanaka Welegedara.
A true Devan/A symbol of simplicity The man who stepped into Murali's shoes May 30, 2013 Around 2.30pm on July 2, 2009, Rangana Herath was preparing to go to the gym on a day off from training with Surrey. Had he left without his phone half an hour earlier, he might still be kicking around the first-class circuit. Sri Lanka might still be awaiting their First Test win since Muttiah Muralitharan's retirement. Their biggest away win in 13 years might never have transpired. He remembers the day clearly, and the call he feels changed his life. Murali had damaged a tendon while training ahead of Kumar Sangakkara's First Test at the helm, and he had suggested to the new captain that Sri Lanka fly Herath in as cover. They were both on the line when Herath picked up. Sangakkara made the proposal. "Ranga, there's a Test match in Galle, not tomorrow, but the next day… Can you make it?" Thirteen thousand kilometres away, there was only ever going to be one answer. "I didn't even think about the fact that not only ...
