A cricket video for Cricket World TV about the latest cricket news as we discuss Sri Lanka beating Pakistan by 209 runs in the first Test match in Galle.
Pakistan were set a record score of 510 to win but were bowled out for 300 despite a valiant effort on the final day and it was Sri Lanka who produced a record. Never before had they beaten Pakistan by so many runs in a Test and they did so having dominated the game throughout.
Kumar Sangakkara batting hit 199 not out in Sri Lanka's first innings, Tillakaratne Dilshan scored a century and a half-century while Suraj Randiv picked up seven wickets in the match.
Pakistan never recovered from being dismissed for 100 in reply to 472, meaning half-centuries on the final day from Younus Khan and Asad Shafiq were in vain.
The second Test in Colombo begins on 30th June.
