Sri Lanka needed 78 runs for an unlikely win over South Africa when they lost their ninth wicket. But Vishwa Fernando held his own against the strong South African bowling attack with Kusal Perera exploding at the other end.
The diminutive Sri Lankan paced his innings to perfection to steal a one-wicket win and remained unbeaten on 153.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to this monumental effort:
‘’Sri Lanka has answered their fans and critics in style. Proud of you guys let’s continue the momentum. Congratulations Dimuth and the team. Kusal you are a star. Lost for words watching this historic win.’’
‘’One of the greatest Test matches in the recent past. #SAvSL Made for great viewing too.. Well done to both the teams.’’
