Whanganui Chronicle - - Sport -

CRICKET: Sri Lankan vet­eran Ran­gana Herath dis­missed two more Eng­land bats­men yes­ter­day to move past Sir Richard Hadlee on the tally of test cricket’s top wicket-tak­ers. Joe Root and Jos But­tler fell prey to his left-arm or­tho­dox guile in the open­ing test at Galle. In his 93rd and fi­nal test, Herath moved past Hadlee’s 431 wick­ets to sit on 433 in eighth-equal along­side Stu­art Broad.
