England vs Sri Lanka Live Cricket Score - 1st Test Match - Summary

End of Over : 85.1 SL: 250/10

So, that's it from us on this rather emotional day. Lots of memories from this Galle Test. Some sweet, some bittersweet, each to their own depending on which side they've been on. We move now to Pallekele where the second game will take place. It will begin at 1000 local (0430 GMT). Do join in for that. Cheers, folks!

85.1 W

OUT! It's all over! A bit of a sad end to Rangana Herath's international career. Tossed up outside off, Herath gets low to play the reverse sweep. It goes off the under edge past the keeper and the batsmen decide to come back for the second. Rangana is struggling on the second one, puts in a desperate dive as Stokes throws it back to the keeper who takes the bails off. It's taken upstairs and replays show that Herath is just short. So with that, ENGLAND WIN BY 211 RUNS! Their first-ever Test victory in Galle.
