Dimuth Karunaratne scored his 8th Test century at 103-Not Out, against South Africa, a short while ago.
South Africa paceman Kagiso Rabada led an inspired bowling attack to put Sri Lanka in trouble at 161 for six on day one of the opening Test in Galle on Thursday.
Opener Dimuth Karunaratne, the most comfortable of Sri Lanka’s batsmen, was not out 80 off 132 balls when rain stopped play in the second session, forcing the umpires to call for early tea.
Karunaratne, who completed his 15th Test half-century early in the afternoon session, has kept alive Sri Lanka’s hopes of posting a respectable total.
