Thilan ton in vain as Kallis guides South Africa to series win: 3rd Test, Day 4 (Cape Town)

A superb all-round performance by Jacques Kallis carried South Africa to a series-clinching 10-wicket win over Sri Lanka.

Thilan Samaraweera hit an unbeaten century but it was in vain as Kallis, having scored 224 in the South African first innings, claimed three for 35 to end the Sri Lankan second innings on 342 to take the series 2-1, it's first home win in 4 years.

South Africa 580 for 4 decl. (Kallis 224, de Villiers 160*, Petersen 109) and 2 for 0 beat SriLanka 239 (Dilshan 78, Philander 3-46, Steyn 3-56) and 342 (Samaraweera 115*, Kallis 3-35) by 10 wickets.
