Moeen Ali's four wickets helped England take a 139-run first innings lead but the spin all-rounder could not justify his promotion to number three for the second time in the match.
KEATON JENNINGS kickstarted his England career with a diligent, unbeaten century against Sri Lanka, helping his side establish an impregnable position in the first Test at Galle. Angelo Mathews scored his second fifty of the match and Kusal Mendis contributed 45 runs to the cause but the rest of the batting order could not hold up and bundled out for 250 runs.
"It's a really hard day for us because we all know how much Rangana has done for the team and Sri Lankan cricket", said Chandimal in the post-match presentation.
Less than three overs later Karunaratne decided he would take the aerial route against Moeen, an ill-judged scheme that saw him club a firm return catch back at the off-spinner.

Chandimal, suffering from a groin injury that kept him off the pitch all of Thursday, was skittled by Leach for 11.
Dhananjaya de Silva, after a confident start, was caught at first slip by skipper Joe Root off Stokes in the last over of the morning session for 21.

"When you play Test cricket, you need to understand how people are going to get you out - even at club cricket you need to understand that", Hathurusingha said. They have had tremendous support here, with 5,000 England fans in Galle, and they did a lap of honour after their victory which was nice.
They struck regularly throughout the day, and though Sri Lanka's batting performance was an improvement on their first innings effort, England were never unduly troubled. "For a guy to come in on his debut and play an innings of that substance is exactly what we're after, for him to stand up and deliver", Root said.
Playing his final test, left-arm spinner Herath drew the England captain out and bowled slightly wide to induce an edge that safely nestled into Niroshan Dickwella's gloves.
