Dilruwan wrecks South Africa: 1st Test, Day 2 (Galle)

Sri Lankan spinners led by Dilruwan Perera (4-46) wreaked havoc to put South Africa on the mat in the 1st Test.

South Africa were bowled out for 126 -- their lowest Test in Sri Lanka after Perera, Herath and Sandakan spun a web around the visitors who were 51-6 at one stage.

Having established a lead of 161, Sri Lanka quickly set about driving home their advantage with Dimuth Karunaratne posting 60 as Sri Lanka ended on 111-4.

Sri Lanka 111-4 (Karunaratne 60, Mathews 14*) & 287 (Karunaratne 158*, Rabada 4 for 50) lead South Africa 126 (du Plessis 49, Perera 4-46) by 272 runs.
