Herath clips Kiwi wings

GALLE, Nov 17, 2012 ,Reuters

Sri Lanka spinner Rangana Herath continued his love affair with the Galle International Cricket Stadium as he took five for 65 to help dismiss New Zealand for 221 on the opening day of the first Test on Saturday.

The left-armer's effort was his fourth five-wicket haul in eight matches at the venue and means 40 of his 159 Test wickets have come here.

New Zealand struck back late with Tim Southee dismissing Sri Lanka debutant Dimuth Karunaratne leg-before wicket for nought as the home side reached nine for one at close of play.

Herath dismissed New Zealand's top-scorers, Brendon McCullum (68) and Daniel Flynn (53), and was well supported by seam bowlers Shaminda Eranga (three for 51) and Nuwan Kulasekara (two for 31).
