And without Chandimal and Matthews, probably their best two bats. Great win

I've seen Kusal Perera bat a few times and thought he was going to waste his incredible amount of talent he has. Bearing in mind he's a very good keeper but lost his place to Dickwella. Good to see Kusal showing his true ability. His six hitting is very reminiscent of his hero Jayasuriya.

These finishes just cant be replicated in white ball.. cracking last days drama.

SA really have declined badly. Great win for SL after being hammered in the previous two series. Steyn and Oliver bowled way too short too often but hey ho. Great entertainment

Sri Lanka having SA in trouble again. The batting is not good enough - Theyre struggling without AB

The likes of Amla are past their best and bavuma isnt good enough

De Kock is playing beautifully though. Just needs someone to stay with him for a bit.

I hate that Amla seems to be past his best now! I used to love watching his style....quality!

With the quota system and a number of quality players leaving,  it is just a matter of time before SA become an average team from the great team they used to be...

On the other hand, good to see SL and WI teams becoming stronger. It is good for international cricket overall.. Hopefully the WC will see close games without too many one sided affairs..

Highly unfair on SL for us to be talking of SAs supposed decline - they just hammered India, the worlds number 1 side not that long ago. SL were simply amazing. Period.

Taking nothing away from SL, in fact really good to see them play at a level that no one saw coming.

Regarding the SA vs Ind series, remember that De Villiers was still there playing for SA. De villiers played crucial knocks in both the tests that SA won. In the third test where De Villiers failed in both innings, Ind won. So he makes so much difference. If he was playing in this series rather than hammering bowlers in the local T20 leagues, the end result could have been different. But again, it is not SL who have asked De villiers to retire or asked SA to come up with their quota system. So they deserve every credit!!
