Second Test, South Africa vs Sri Lanka, Colombo 2006
Sri Lanka wrap up series victory
Aug 08, 2006Sri Lanka survived a thrilling finish in Colombo as they beat South Africa by one wicket to wrap up a 2-0 series win.
Starting the final day on 262-5 needing 352 to win, the hosts lost their wicket-keeper Prasanna Jayawardene early when he was lbw to Andrew Hall. Skipper Mahela Jayawardene and Farveez Maharoof then took Sri Lanka to 341-6 before Jayawardene edged to Herschelle Gibbs at first slip after making 123. Hall took two more wickets before Lasith Malinga hit the winning run. It was Sri Lanka's highest fourth-innings run chase - and the sixth highest successful run chase in the history of Test cricket. It was also only the 11th victory by one wicket in Test history. Muralitharan's 22 wickets in the two matches were enough to win the man-of-the-series reward.
