Herath skittles Pakistan for dramatic win: 1st Test, Day 5 (Abu Dhabi)

Rangana Herath became the oldest player and fifth spinner to bag 400 wickets as his six-wicket haul steered Sri Lanka to a thrilling 21-run win over Pakistan.

The veteran left-arm spinner took 6-43 - for match figures of 11-136 - to help Sri Lanka dismiss Pakistan for only 114 in pursuit of 136 on the final day, a record low score for Pakistan.

Earlier, leg-spinner Yasir Shah took 5-51 - his 32nd five wicket haul in Tests - to dismiss Sri Lanka for 138 in their second innings.

Sri Lanka 419 (Chandimal 155, Dickwella 83) and 138 (Dickwella 40*, Yasir 5-51) beat Pakistan 422 (Azhar 85, Herath 5-93) and 114 (Herath 6-43, Dilruwan 3-46) by 21 runs.
