Sri Lanka stepped closer to giving former captain Mahela Jayawardene a winning farewell after Rangana Herath skittled Pakistan once more in the second Test in Colombo on Sunday. Pakistan, set a series-levelling target of 271 runs, slumped to 50-5 before plodding to 127 for seven by stumps on the fourth day at the Sinhalese Sports Club.

Left-arm spinner Herath, who claimed nine wickets in the first innings, grabbed four for 46 to destroy Pakistan’s fragile batting once again in front of some 5,000 screaming home fans. Herath, who came on to bowl the ninth over after seamer Dhammika Prasad had dismissed openers Khurram Manzoor and Ahmed Shehzad, struck his first blow with his eighth delivery.

Jayawardene, who ends his 17-year Test career after this match, held two smart catches in the slips off Herath to get rid of Azhar Ali and skipper Misbah-ul Haq. Herath then won a leg-before decision against Younis Khan to make it 50-5 in the 19th over, before Asad Shafiq and Sarfraz Ahmed stemmed the rot by batting an hour for their 55-run stand.

Shafiq was stumped off Herath for 32 and Abdur Rehman was leg-before to Dilruwan Perera, but Sarfraz remained unbeaten on a defiant 38. Sri Lanka will return on Monday to take the remaining three wickets that will enable them to sweep the series after winning the first Test in Galle by seven wickets.

Brief scores:

Pakistan 332 and 127 for 7 (Asad Shafiq 32, Sarfraz Ahmed 38;  Herath 4 for 46)  vs Sri Lanka320 and 282 (Upul Tharanga 45; Kumar Sangakkara 59, Mahela Jayawardene 54, Angelo Mathews 43; Wahab Riaz 3 for 76, Saeed Ajmal 3 for 89)
