Sri Lanka vs England Live Cricket Score, 1st Test, Galle

"I have only watched Keaton Jennings live in two test matches and he has got a hundred in both I must be his lucky charm!", former England great Allan Lamb said on Twitter.

Credits to some fantabulous performances from Jack Leach (2/41 and 3/60) and Moeen Ali (4/55 and 4/71) for uprooting the Lankan wickets in both innings of the contest.

The tourists triumphed inside four days in Galle, breezing past Sri Lanka by 211 runs after big centuries from debutant Ben Foakes and under-fire opener Keaton Jennings.

Sri Lanka were then bowled out for 203, leaving them 139 behind, falling to a spin attack led by Ali who took four for 66.

"We're hopeful it gets better in the next week, I can't see it getting any worse!"

"It was a very good wicket but our batting was below-par", Chandimal said, adding it was not the farewell that he and his team mates had imagined for Herath. In his last Test match, Herath picked up three wickets to end career with 433 wickets in 93 Tests.

"The main thing is, if we can win this game and the series, that will be a really good farewell for him".

Some teams had imposed "two-drink limits", he said, while others had introduced a ticketing system to stop alcohol flowing freely. Reacting to the announcements, the organisers of last week's Google Walkout said the pledges proved "collective action works".

England and Zimbabwe players have gained big in the latest ICC Rankings for Test players, released on Saturday. "We don't want to reveal all because we want him to be surprised", said Chandimal.

Left-arm spinner Jack Leach struck twice in the post-lunch session to help reduce Sri Lanka to 190 for five at tea as England inched closer to a comprehensive victory in the opening test on Friday. Joe Root had sent down a quick over so as to allow Ben Stokes to start the final over of the session in the nick of time.

Dilruwan Perera and Rangana Herath, playing his last test, finished with two wickets apiece.

He was soon joined in the dressing room by Karunaratne (26), who charged down the pitch against Moeen and drove it straight back to the off-spinner, gifting him his 150th test wicket.

Sri Lanka, who went down to the tourists 3-1 in the five One-day Internationals and also lost a one-off Twenty20 worldwide, are looking for redemption in the three-Test series starting on Tuesday. Angelo Mathews was the top scorer with 52 runs.

We need to regroup and looking forward to the next game.

When asked about the situation of the game when he came to the crease, Foakes said: "All I was thinking was to grind in and just make it hard for them to get me out basically".
