Rangana Herath: Sri Lankan legend

November 9, 2018 11:11 pm

Ranaga Herath ends his career third in the list of most 10-wicket hauls in Test cricket, behind Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne. He picked up 398 of his 433 Test wickets after turning 30.

Rangana Herath’s last act came on Day 3 of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle when he bowled his final delivery in Test cricket to Keaton Jennings. In his last Test, Herath could pick up only one wicket but that doesn’t erase the phenomenal numbers he racked up in his illustrious career. As age finally catches up with Islander, Herath ends his career with more wickets than any other slow left-arm spinner in Test cricket, eighth on the all-time list. His figures in his final innings read: 2-59 in 23 overs.
