Thilan spares Sri Lankan blushes: 2nd Test. Day 1 (Durban)

Thilan Samaraweera and Dinesh Chandimal steered Sri Lanka out of trouble while Mahela Jayawardene joined the 10,000-run club.

Samaraweera and debutant Chandimal constructed an impressive 111-run sixth-wicket partnership to lift Sri Lanka out of danger after Marchant de Lange, South Africa's new fast bowler, had ripped out three of Sri Lanka's leading batsmen.

Sri Lanka 289 for 7 (Samaraweera 86*, Chandimal 58, de Lange 4-60). 2nd Test.

Day 1 (Durban), Dec 2011
