Sri Lanka in historic win over England
Posted on June 24th, 2014

Sri Lanka clinched their first ever Test series victory in England by winning the second and final Investec Test match by 100 runs at Headingly yesterday.

Sri Lanka, which captured five English wickets for 57 runs on Day Four, dismissed England for 249 in the penultimate delivery of the last over of the day in a thrilling Test match. Skipper Angelo Mathews played his best Test knock of 160 with Sri Lanka setting England a daunting 350-run target.

This test victory gives Sri Lanka victory in all three formats of the game as Sri Lanka won the one-off Twenty20 by nine runs at The Oval and followed it with a 3-2 win in the One International Series.

Sri Lanka beat England by 10 wickets in a one-off test against England in 1998.

    It was a nail biting finish. Congratulations to the Sri Lankan team.

    Nowadays fundamentalists also play cricket with their dirty long beards hanging ugly. This is disgusting and is an insult to the game. Every player must present themselves clean and appropriately shaven.

    But it is compulsory in Sri Lankan universities. Only in Sri Lanka we have this Law imposed by terrorist.
