Suranga Lakmal and part-time spinner Dhananjaya de Silva shared seven wickets to cause a major Standard Bank Proteas second innings collapse and give Sri Lanka a wonderful chance on Friday of winning the Test Series at St. George’s Park.

Kagiso Rabada and Duanne Olivier had earlier also shared seven wickets to give the Proteas a lead of 68 runs on the first innings but, as they have done throughout the series, Sri Lanka continued to match the home side punch for punch to dismiss the Proteas for 128 runs and set a victory target of 197.

De Kock again holds South African innings together

South Africa produced an uncanny replica of their first innings batting effort in the first Castle Lager Test match against Sri Lanka at Kingsmead when the second Test match got under way at St. George’s Park on Thursday.

The end result was that they got dismissed for 222 runs compared with the 235 they made in Durban. This is, however, a contest between two struggling top-orders and they were still well in the game at the close of play with Sri Lanka on 60/3 still trailing by 162 on the first innings.

Kusal Perera guides Sri Lanka to incredible 1-wicket win

Kusal Perera played one of the most significant innings for Sri Lanka outside the sub-continent to get his side over the line for a one-wicket victory over the Proteas in the first Test match at Kingsmead on Saturday.

In plain statistics Perera (153 not out off 200 balls, 12 fours and 5 sixes) scored more than half the 304 runs needed for victory and shared an unbroken 10th wicket partnership of 78 with Vishwa Fernando who stuck it out during a time when the Proteas could take the second new ball in the final few overs to finish on 6 off 27 balls.
