Rangana scalps 14 as SL win

Colombo: Former captain Mahela Jayawardene was given a fairytale send-off in his last Test match as Sri Lanka eased to a 105-run victory that completed a 2-0 series sweep over Pakistan on Monday.

After ripping through the Pakistan order the previous evening, Sri Lanka were forced to wait for nearly an hour before capturing the last two wickets with Ranagana Herath claiming his 14th victim of the match to dismiss the visitors for 165 in their second innings.

Wahab Riaz was the last man out for 17 when he top-edged a delivery from Herath to cover that Kaushal Silva held on to despite colliding with Kumar Sangakkara, who was also attempting to catch the ball. Junaid Khan did not bat due to injury.

Earlier, Chanaka Welegedara dismissed the last front line batsman when Sarfraz Ahmed, having completed his fourth fifty in as many innings, attempted to sweep the paceman from outside.
