Man-of-the-match Herath finished with a match tally of 14 wickets as Mahela Jayawardene bowed out of Test cricket with a victory on his home ground.

The tourists resumed on 127-7 with Sarfraz Ahmed (38) and Wahab Riaz (2) at the crease.

They added a further 24 runs before first-innings centurion Sarfraz was dismissed for 55 when he swept Chanaka Welegedara into the hands of Kumar Sangakkara at deep square leg.

Three overs later, Wahab went for 17 with Herath, who took nine wickets in the first innings, prompting a false shot and the top edge being pouched by Kaushal Silva at short cover.

With Junaid Khan absent after being hit on the head by a Dhammika Prasad bouncer on Saturday, the match was all over inside an hour.

Angelo Mathews’ side climb above Pakistan in the ICC Test rankings after the victory.

It was Jayawardene's 149th final Test, and his final run total of 11,814 makes him the seventh-highest scorer in history.
