That Target was way out of reach for South Africa. SL should have kept it interesting. A score between 270-300 could have kept SA interested. Now they are just blocking.

Last 10 ovs 7/0 RR 0.70

I guess the nr. 1 ranking is really important.

Good to see three specialist spinners in Herath (left-arm orthodox), Perera (off-spin) and Mendis (leg breaks) in the side.
All picked for bowling, not as allrounders who can bowl a bit.

Brings back memories of Bedi, Prasanna and Chandra.

Saving a Test is an awesome art. Many a teams look like fools while doing so.

In the post lunch session SL bowled 47 overs!!!
And SA scored 49 runs during that period, losing 2 wickets.

Session winner -> South Africa.
SL is desperate to break though, SA not allowing them to.

19 overs to survive for SA. Recently SL won when they got Jimmy on last ball of the game. They are favorite atm I think.

10 now. I'm going to take a shower which hopefully doesn't turn into a jinx for South Africa. Sometimes showers = lots of wickets.
