Pakistan vs Sri Lanka 1st Test: What a game of cricket we had! Pakistan were set a target of 136 runs to chase in final two sessions of Day 5 and it looked like Pakistan will go on to have a 1-0 lead in the Test series but Sri Lanka spinners, led by Rangana Herath, brought Sri Lanka back in the game and beat Pakistan by 21 runs. Pakistan were bowled out for 114 in the fourth innings with Herath picking up 6 wickets for 45 runs. Dilruwan Perera took three wickets for 46 runs. Pakistan lost five wickets for the score of 36 runs before Sarfraz Ahmed and Haris Sohail brought them back with a good stand. Once Sarfraz was dismissed by Dilruwan, it was all about getting the wicket of Sohail which Herath did. Sri Lanka celebrated the win when Dilruwan bowled Yasir Shah but that was called a no-ball. So Herath returned to get Yasir and the win. (FULL LIVE SCORECARD)
