Sri Lankan Cricket Captain Angelo Mathews said yesterday, that Kusal Mendis' batting and Rangana Herath's "all-round" performances constituted the positives from the 2 nil Test series defeat against England.
Herath claimed 7 wickets at an average of 43.28, and also hit 109 runs from No. 8 in the series.
Mathews said that "Herath was superb," given the fact that he is 38 years of age, he has backed the team with his all-round ability.
Mathews added that Herath was throwing himself all over the field, and that it was good to see the oldest man diving around and stopping boundaries.
