Herath- test spinner

Veteran spinner Rangana Herath believes that Kusal Mendis who is 16 not out will be the key to Sri Lanka getting anywhere close to saving or winning the first Test against Pakistan being played at Abu Dhabi here.

 “Kusal he is the key. He needs to bat as much as he can. We also have Dickwella and Dilruwan and we need to get to a decent total,” he said.

Sri Lanka ended the fourth day on 69-4 to lead overall by 66 runs with six second innings wickets in hand going into the fifth and final day today.

Pakistan managed to gain a slender three-run lead after Herath had produced yet another top drawer performance with the ball.

Already the leading left-arm spinner in the game, Herath’s five wickets for 93 took him closer to six wickets from achieving 400 Test wickets.
