47.6 Perera strike, Raval fails to reach his century once again. Length on middle and leg, Raval was looking to work it on the leg side, gets an inside edge on to the pads that lobs towards short leg, Mendis accepts it gleefully, tumbling to his right 121/1

A RED LETTER MOMENT for Dilruwan: so often in the shadow of Murali and Herath

Profile

A classical offspinner with an easy, fluent action, Dilruwan Perera had been among Sri Lanka’s steadiest first-class performers, before being rewarded with the second spinner’s berth in the Test squad, in 2014. It was with the bat that he made his first impression in Tests: Perera came within five runs of scoring a century on debut, against Pakistan at Sharjah, but he asserted himself as a bowler soon enough. His second-innings five-wicket haul helped wipe Bangladesh out in Dhaka, less than two weeks later.
