Yasir's five-for restricts Sri Lanka to 138

03 October 2017

Herath also etched his name in the record books as he became the first left-arm spinner and second Sri Lankan spinner after Muttiah Muralitharan to take 400 Test wickets.

Herath opened the window of opportunity for Sri Lanka. Azhar Ali didn't last long as he eked out an edge to the 'keeper off Suanga Lakmal.

Then came the stand that, perhaps, changed the course of this Test: 50 runs added for Pakistan's ninth wicket gave this Test the direction that over 750 runs scored in the match previously couldn't give.

The fact Sri Lanka head to Dubai for the second match - and their first floodlit Test - on Friday knowing they can not lose the series is a remarkable effort on a number of counts.

The veteran left-arm spinner took 6-43 - 11-136 in the match - to scupper Pakistan, set a modest 136-run target, for just 114 on a tired fifth day Sheikh Zayed Stadium pitch.

US dominating Presidents Cup
On the 15th and final hole of the match, Reed wanted to - we guess - motivate Spieth to hole his approach shot on the short par 4. The two South Africans had won four matches at the 2015 Cup, and provided the lone victory for the Internationals on Thursday.

From Sri Lanka, Rangana Herath bagged 6 wickets while Dilruwan Perera took 3.

Azhar's defiant knock lasted more than five hours and included four boundaries, but with his dismissal Pakistan's hopes of building a lead faded. Aslam, recalled after being dropped from the West Indies tour on disciplinary grounds earlier this year, was trapped leg-before by off-break bowler Dilruwan Perera.

It was Pakistan's first test defeat in Abu Dhabi, one of the team's homes away from home while global cricket is suspended in their country.

Abbas reviewed the decision immediately, but it was no use replays showed that the ball was pitching in line and going on to smash into off-stump. "Rangana and I went to him and told him, "Don't worry, there will be more runs, just one ball, and bowl the right areas", he said. There are some batting issues in our team and we were put under pressure. It's not easy to come back like he did.

Sarfraz: Win and loss - it's always a part of the game, but we should have won this match. "If we do that, we'll do well".

Maye Musk is Covergirl's new face at 69
In recent years, CoverGirl has made it a company-wide priority to promote diversity and expand our definition of "beauty". Everyone who says age is just a number is totally right - and one model has taken it upon herself to prove that point.

Sri Lanka opener Karunaratne had helped rescue his side from 61 for three before a mix-up with Dinesh Chandimal saw him sent him packing after a fourth-wicket stand of 100.

Chandimal also thanked the selectors for boosting the team's confidence.

"The credit goes to all the players".

"Dickwella was outstanding in the second innings to get us close to the 140-mark".

"We knew once we got that much, we have our legend [Herath] here. Everyone put their heart and soul into the practices, and the management put lots of hard work in".

In July, Simpson was granted parole after serving almost nine years behind bars. Once released, he'll be subject to parole supervision until September 2022.

"They played some really good cricket and I'm sure this can continue throughout the series". Actually I am ageing and when you get old, you feel soreness.
