GALLE, Sri Lanka: Rangana Herath grabbed 6-48 in Sri Lanka's seven-wicket victory against Pakistan on a remarkable last day of the first test on Sunday.

  
The left-arm spinner turned the game on its head when Pakistan, which trailed by 82 after the first innings, was bowled out for 180. Sri Lanka then needed 99 runs in a minimum 21 overs.
