Kusal Perera hit an unbeaten 153 as Sri Lanka chased 304 to claim a stunning one-wicket win over South Africa in the first Test in Durban.
BBC Sports reports, Perera and Vishwa Fernando, who made six not out, added an unbroken 78 to rescue Sri Lanka from 229-9 on the fourth day.
The report says it was the highest last-wicket stand in a successful fourth-innings chase in first-class cricket.
This is Sri Lanka’s second win in 14 Tests in South Africa.
The final Test in Port Elizabeth gets underway on Friday.
