Spinner Rangana Herath thrived as Sri Lanka’s stand-in captain, taking 8-63 to seal a 257-run win over Zimbabwe in the second Test on Thursday and a 2-0 series sweep.
Herath finished with 13 wickets in the match after replacing injured regular skipper Angelo Mathews as the Sri Lankan captain for this tour.
Continuing on 180-7 and still needing 311 runs to win, Zimbabwe didn’t last long on the final day of the series, just 13 overs, with Herath taking all three wickets.
Herath had Craig Ervine caught for 72 to get rid of the home team’s last established batsman and Sri Lanka made it five straight Test victories after a 3-0 whitewash of Australia at home in August.
