Fearless Sri Lanka stun South Africa in Kingsmead epic

In one of the most stunning run chases you will ever see, Sri Lanka have beaten the Proteas by one wicket in the first Test at Kingsmead. A remarkable 78-run 10th-wicket stand between Kusal Perera (153* of 200) and No 11 Vishwa Fernando (5*) got the visitors over the line as the Proteas fell to pieces on day four. Perera had earlier put on 96 for the sixth-wicket with Dhananjaya de Silva (48) that was equally important. Perera was nothing short of brilliant in one of the greatest knocks this country has ever seen in Test cricket.
