Test wins for Sri Lanka and South Africa

BCCI Bangladesh

Puh, only seven apiece.

Rangana Herath became the 14th bowler to take 400 wickets.

Perera ended Sohail's fight by trapping him leg before and also had Shah but it turned out to be a no-ball, halting Sri Lanka's celebrations, eventually provided by Herath. In a last day thriller, it was the Sri Lankan side the prevailed.

The collapse started with the early wicket of Kusal Mendis, who was trapped leg-before wicket by Mohammad Abbas in the third over of the day.

"We have a few issues, especially in the fifth day when we come under pressure, " he said.

UAE's Mars Science City has museum with 3D printed sand walls
Now the government of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has revealed a plan to build a simulated Martian city in Dubai. The campus will also contain a museum dedicated to humanity's greatest achievements in space exploration.

Niroshan Dickwella remained defiant, however, and when Pakistan's batsmen then hit nearly immediate trouble it became clear the Sri Lanka wicketkeeper's unbeaten 40 could well be significant. There was, however, a mini revival, the only bright spot at that for Lanka batting as Niroshan Dickwella and Lakshan Sandakan stitched a crucial 34-run partnership. Herath noted there was assistance from the pitch late in the match, but he was feeling sore after a marathon bowling spell. We were surprised, but we thought before play started today that 160-plus would be a winning total.

Pakistan, meanwhile, came face-to-face with life post Misbah-ul-Haq and Younis Khan. Yasir had bowled with venom, turning his legbreak practically out of the next district, slipping in that slider that seemed no less destructive. The only match that ranks higher is the Mumbai Test involving Australia in 2004-05 when the spinners took 17 wickets at an average of 9.52. The remainder of the morning belonged more or less to Yasir.

Sri Lanka finally had the last laugh in the next over.

He is the first bowler to take a century of wickets against Pakistan, beating Indian paceman Kapil Dev, who fell one short with 99. Pakistan, understandably, had left for lunch with a strut.

"I'm on the groundsman's case", Du Plessis said yesterday after South Africa bowled out Bangladesh for 90 to complete a crushing 333-run win on the fifth and final day of the first Test at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom. This game, perhaps has had the strangest final five sessions at all. If a result appeared out of the question at that point, it appeared all but certain once the Sri Lankans had crumbled to 138 all out in their second innings. Then Pakistan took the match by the collar. The technology returned a verdict of "umpire's call", which no longer sees the unsuccessful team lose one of their two reviews per innings.
