Karunaratne carrying his bat, scoring 158*.
Wow!

He's turning out to be a pretty decent opener for Sri Lanka.
Ok, his Test average is still only 36, but in these times, that's not too bad for Sri Lanka.
This is his 50th Test, he's got 3344 runs.
So he and Brathwaite are pretty close to each other in stats right now.
Both have 8 Test hundreds.

Steyn 420 Test wickets, Herath 419 Test wickets - both playing this game. :-)
Shaun Pollock holds the alltime record for South Africa with 421 wickets.

SA 73 all out!
Wow!
And that, after their 126 all out in the first innings.

What's with South Africa in sub-continental conditions?
Ok, this is Galle, so you can expect drama - but even by SA standards, this is pathetic.
Wasn't Amla at least supposed to be good in these conditions?
Even he has completely lost it now.

10-fer for Dilruwan Perera in this game. Herath has 5 for the match.

Herath goes ahead of Pollock and Steyn in this game.

Next target is Richard Hadlee (431), then Kapil Dev (434).

I think that's where Herath will stop (assuming he gets that far).
