Herath passes Vass

Left-arm orthodox spinner - Rangana Herath became Sri Lanka’s second-highest wicket-taker in Tests after going past Chaminda Vaas’ tally of 355 wickets during the second Test against South Africa at Cape Town.

Only Muttiah Muralitharan (800) now has more Test wickets than him for Sri Lanka.

Herath, who achieved the feat in just 77 Tests, has been in a staggering form for Sri Lanka since the England tour and has been taking wickets on a consistent basis.
