Video - Ranatunga On Winning A Test In England

Should Angelo Mathews lead Sri Lanka to victory at Headingley, he would emulate Arjuna Ranatuna, who tells us in this exclusive interview how 'great' it is to win a Test in England.

Ranatunga led the side to a Test win at Lord's in 1998 and he says this is one of most treasured memories from the game, apart from winning the World Cup in 1996.

He argues that it was important for Sri Lanka to play Tests against top teams like England, and that he feels 'hurt' that Sri Lanka now play only two Tests against England rather than three, which they did for a time.

At The Oval in 1998, Ranatunga scored 51 before Muttiah Muralitharan took nine wickets in England's second innings to set them on course for a 10-wicket win.
