Sri Lanka hand South Africa a Test series whitewash

Rangana Herath took six wickets as Sri Lanka completed a 199-run win over South Africa to sweep the two-test series with a day to spare. The veteran spinner snared 6-98, including the vital wicket that broke up South Africa’s 123-run sixth-wicket stand just before the lunch interval on Monday.

Well done to the team for giving South Africa an absolute thrashing.
England next challenge (for tests).

Team needs to look at that middle order though. At least Angelo and Roshen good decent hit on day 3 albeit against a demoralised team going through the motions.
Roshen and Dickwella need more runs under their belt. Technique and temperament maybe need to be looked at.

Need to keep those fast bowlers that did well in the Caribbean in the loop and playing some sort of cricket prior to overseas tours too if conditions and selections going to be similar against England.

Otherwise great stuff by team and slowly improving and getting better and better in Tests after that horrible home series to India
