Rangana Herath's 13-Wicket Haul Helps SL Sweep Zimbabwe Test Series 2-0
Rangana Herath finished with 13 wickets as Sri Lanka completed a convincing 257run victory over Zimbabwe in the second Test to sweep the series 2- nil at Harare Sports Club.
The tourists went into the final day needing just three wickets to wrap up the match, and Herath required less than an hour to claim them as he finished with 8 for 63 in the second innings, bowling Zimbabwe out for 233.
Sri Lanka's captain finished with figures of 13 for 152 in the match, after his team also won the first Test on November 2nd by 225 runs.
The two teams will play each other in a one-day international on Monday, when a triangular series also involving the West Indies gets underway at the same venue.
