With another Test remaining in the series, Southee has a chance to go past former Pakistan captain Younis Khan (70), former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd (70) and former Australia captain Ricky Ponting (73). In the meantime, the 31-year-old has had the privilege of equaling Sachin Tendulkar, the former Indian cricketer.

The All Blacks will retain the number one spot in World Rugby after England ended Wales' 14-test unbeaten run overnight. "We've got processes for our performance and we are well aware of where we went wrong in the first half".
"New Zealand will be tough to beat". In these conditions, rather than giving away a lot of runs, we need to dry them up. Hence, Lockie Ferguson or some other quick bowler would have been a way better option for New Zealand.
Also, if you consider his batting, his technique is not very uptight and he can easily be found out on pitches which assist the spinners and the bat-pad can come into play instantly.
Ish Sodhi was on fire in the Global T20 Canada League and picked up eight wickets from just his first two matches. New Zealand will look to win against a weakened Sri Lankan side, but can not take their chances against the team which had recently beaten South Africa in South Africa.
