Rangana Herath to retire after first England Test

22 Octobre, 2018, 21:27 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion

Kamindu, 20, bowled right-arm off-breaks to the left-handed Eoin Morgan and left-arm spin to the right-handed Joe Root when England played a 50-over warm-up game against a Sri Lanka Board XI earlier this month, with the youngster getting through eight overs for 37 runs.

Never one to extract prodigious turn off the pitch like Sri Lankan spin great Muttiah Muralitharan could do, Herath relied more on his unrelenting accuracy and subtle changes of pace and flight of the ball to trouble batsmen. Among now active bowlers, he has the third best tally - behind James Anderson [564] and Stuart Broad [433] - on the bowlers' list.

Watch the one-off Twenty20 worldwide between Sri Lanka and England live on Sky Sports Cricket from 2pm on Saturday - the fifth and final ODI is live on Sky Sports Cricket from 9.30am on Tuesday.

Galle will host his last match, the same venue where the left-arm spinner had made his Test debut a whopping 19 years ago. With 430 Test scalps already ahead of his final game, Herath will go down in Test history as the most successful left-arm spinner. For most of his career he was overshadowed by Muralitharan, who took 800 Test wickets before retiring from the format in 2010 - also at Galle.

Thisara Perera, who led Sri Lanka's limited-overs teams in fits and starts towards the end of previous year, has been named captain, in the continued absence of Angelo Mathews in limited-overs cricket.

Even as Herath's habit of consistently taking wickets from 2011 has carried on all the way through to 2018 - 352 wickets since then - fitness has been an area of concern. At home at least, they are doing well in the Tests.

That the 100-Test milestone will remain unachieved is in no way a blight on a fabulous career accentuated by persistence and grit. No bowler has also taken as many as his 230 wickets after turning 35.
