Pakistan had scored 266 runs for a loss of four wickets on third day of the match against Sri Lankan first innings total of 419 runs.

Herath, a long-time nemesis of Pakistan, also completed 100 wickets in 20 Tests against them, during an innings in which only debutant Haris Sohail fought with some resolve for his 34 runs.

Most wickets after 84 Tests.

The Sri Lankan tweaker is the fourth fastest to the mark, beating the likes of Anil Kumble (85 Tests), Glenn McGrath (87 Tests) and Shane Warne (92 Tests).

Morgan has grown into one of the best halves in the league and Taumalolo might be the best player in the world full stop. They have instead been forced to move their final training session to Sydney's Jubilee Park in Kogorah.

After four days of tiresome cricket, this match saw a frenetic fifth day when 15 wickets fell for just 183 runs.

Herath hasn't been always at his best against Pakistan though.

A Test that was prefaced with a lament on both sides over the absence of heroes of the recent past was settled when a modern master took his 400th Test wicket, and bowled Sri Lanka to a stunning victory in the process.

Pakistan's chase started badly, losing wickets at 4, 7, 16 and 32 before limping to tea at 67-5 and setting up a tense last session. When you are getting old, it gets increasingly hard, it's a different feeling (on his 400 Test wickets). The first innings, after which only three runs separated the teams, now seems like a long set-up for what eventually became a gripping second-innings shootout. For a period when Sarfraz (Ahmed) and Haris (Sohail) were going on, it was looking good.

Sri Lanka scripted an incredible heist against Pakistan in the first test match at Dubai when they emerged victorious by 21 runs.

The fact Sri Lanka head to Dubai for the second match - and their first floodlit Test - on Friday knowing they can not lose the series is a remarkable effort on a number of counts. That put us under pressure.

Herath (6-43) opened the bowling for Sri Lanka and in his second over, he struck to remove Sami Aslam (2) and Lakmal (1-12) sent Azhar Ali (0) back when he nicked one to the keeper.

It was Pakistan's first test defeat in Abu Dhabi, one of the team's homes away from home while worldwide cricket is suspended in their country. Conditions are great for batting so, hopefully, we can build a few big partnerships and look to get a first innings lead. "As a team, we were below par in our performances [against India], but we have waited for this win and finally we got it. Credit goes to all the players".

Winning the series meant Kohli chose to rest Kuldeep, Bhuvneshwar, and Bumrah, replacing them with Axar Patel, Shami, and Yadav. Shikhar Dhawan has not been around for the Australia series which has played its part in Rahul getting a look in the squad.

This average of spinners in the second innings of the match is the second-lowest in Test history when they have taken at least 15 wickets.
