Sri Lanka vs South Africa

Keshav Maharaj finally dismissed last man Herath for 35 to finish with nine for 129 runs, the best bowling figures for South Africa since its test readmission in 1992.

Till date, only Englishman Jim Laker (10/53) and former India skipper Anil Kumble (10/74) have picked all 10 wickets in an innings of a Test match.

Offspinners Dilruwan Perera (4-40) and Dananjaya (5-52) shared nine wickets between them and veteran Rangana Herath claimed the 10th. His effort is also the best against the Islanders by any opposition bowler.

Meanwhile, Hashim Amla reached 9,000 Test runs during second and final test against Sri Lanka on Saturday.

Sri Lanka were 151-3 in the second innings with Dimuth Karunaratne and Danushka Gunathilaka adding 91 runs for the first wicket.

De Bruyn and Temba Bavuma proved during their 123-run stand that Sri Lanka's rampaging spinners could be tackled with decisive footwork and proper application.

Sri Lanka lead the two-match series 1-0, having won the first test by 278 runs.
