Opener Keaton Jennings ended his two-year wait for a second test century with a career-best 146 not out as England inched towards a comprehensive victory in the opening test against Sri Lanka yesterday.

England claimed their first away Test victory in 13 matches on Friday with a commanding 211-run win against Sri Lanka in Galle, with Moeen Ali claiming his second four-wicket haul of the game. With Herath's despairing dive to save himself from getting run-out which went in vain, Sri Lanka were bowled out exactly on 250 in the second innings and concede a lead in the three-match series.

"Jonny, fully fit, would have played this Test match, probably would have performed well, done well with the gloves and scored runs and we wouldn't be having this conversation", insisted Prior. "We have so much more hard work to do but to see so many talented players in the XI, or in the squad, or the different options we can go with is credit to the whole group".

England's Jack Leach successfully appeals to dismiss Sri Lanka's Kaushal Silva during the fourth day of the first test cricket match between Sri Lanka and England in Galle, Sri Lanka, Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

"Our batting was below par and, if you display that kind of batting, you can't stay in the game", Chandimal added.

"It's a bit of an emotional situation but everyone has to take a decision at the right time so I'm thankful for all the years that I've played and all the people who were behind me, especially my teammates and Sri Lanka Cricket". We have a real clear plan about how we want to get to be the number one side in the world.

Root, who only managed 35 and 3 with the bat himself, said he was "very proud" of his team, paying tribute to his "excellent" bowling unit and to some "crucial knocks" by England's batsmen.

Meghan eventually wore a tiara with platinum and diamond which was designed by Queen Mary, the current queen's grandmother. The royal insider however said the Queen wasn't having a bar of it and told Harry "she gets what tiara she's given by me".

"We've done our homework and made sure we came here knowing how we were going to try and approach things", said Root. "It's been a fantastic start to things".

The final result might have seemed nearly inevitable at the start of play, with Sri Lanka pursuing a world record chase of 462 or the equally unlikely prospect of batting two full days for a draw, but the scale of the achievement should not be underplayed. The ball earlier he was given out but reprieved on review.

After lunch Kusal Mendis hit Leach for four over his head but attempting a repeat the next ball spooned the ball to Moeen and departed for 46.

Chandimal, suffering from a groin injury that kept him off the pitch all of Thursday, was skittled by Leach for 11.

Karunaratne enjoyed a slice of luck on 16 when he edged Moeen, but Stokes grassed an easy catch at slip.

Last out was silver fox Rangana Herath, cricket's most successful left-arm spinner, run out for five in his swansong before retirement.
