Anderson still has it


Cricket: Pace bowler James Anderson looks no closer to the finish line after posting yet another careerhigh in England’s second test against Sri Lanka.On Saturday, the 38yearold put the finishing touches to figures of six for 40 on day two of the test, his bestever return in Asian conditions.

That helped England dismiss its hosts for 381, with 110 from Angelo Mathews the standout.

Continuing its response on day three, England were last night 252 for five towards the end of the second session.

Captain Joe Root had made a second century in the series to be unbeaten on 136, and was at the crease with Sam Curran on 7. — AAP/Staff reporter
