GALLE – England's Ben Foakes made a memorable debut to help tourists recover from the terrible platform and reach 321 eight wickets against the first test against Sri Lanka on Tuesday.

In England, rolling out ten with two and then 103 in five, though the 200th seemed difficult, but Foakes forged 50-plus stands If Buttler and Sam Curran drag them back to the competition.

Foakes, replacing the injured Jonny Bairstow on the sidelines, was in battle with 87 stumps when he was impressed with his strike when his eyes remained visible.

Jack Leach was on the other side 14 when tourists had been in the last two sessions.

Earlier, England had made a convincing recovery to retire after Alastair Cook retired after Captain Joe Root decided to hit first to avoid getting the final inning in spin-friendly mode.

The early strike by Suranga Lakmal, however, overturned his first test of top level order without the Great England of England who left the international arena in September.

The opening Rory Burns (nine) was disappointed with his test debut and Moeen Ali was not genuinely promoted to three because Lakmal claimed two balls.

Root denied Lakmal's hat-trick and started the reconstruction work, initially with running speed, with Keaton Jennings.

GOLDEN HERATH

Sri Lanka lost both of their criticisms of 12, but it was a golden arm of 40-year-old Rangana Herath who dropped Root's 62 seat in Jennings.

Herath, when his teammates guarded before the 93rd and final attempt, yorked advanced Root to claim his 100th wicket spot where he made his test debut in 1999.

Root hit five lines smoothly 35 before paying for his negligence.

Dilruwan Perera (4-70) rejected Jennings 46 and Ben Stokes for seven other players, clean bowling for both left-handed players.

Buttler and Foakes were rationally abandoning a very aggressive blow that had been tilted out of England during the morning and combined with the sixth wicket for a 61-year-old.

Even as Perera dismissed Buttler's 38, Foakes collected 88 at Curran, which hit three to six before falling to 48, while Adil Rashid gave a quick fire 35 in order.
