A modest Sri Lanka captain Rangana Herath should be a happy man after his team won the Test series 2-nil over Zimbabwe in Harare. The Sri Lankans won the second Test by 257 runs. After taking 13 wickets in the second Test, Herath said that he always tries his best at every match. He said that every single day the players are improving and he does just the same when representing the country.

Herath also won the man of the match award having taken a match winning eight wickets in the Zimbabwe second innings. This helped Sri Lanka finish the match in the first session of the final day.

When asked about when he intends to call it a day, Herath replied that he has no plans to hang up his boots yet.

“I will take it series by series and go on as long as my fitness is good,” said Herath.
Dimuth Karunaratne was adjudged man of the series for his contributions in both matches. He said that he was struggling during a series and after having performed well recently he had gained confidence to return to form.

Zimbabwe skipper Graeme Cremer said that credit should go out to the Sri Lanka team who played better with bat and ball.

“We have learnt some positives from this series and hope to do well in the shorter version of the game with West Indies and Sri Lanka as well,” quipped Cremer.
