A phenomenal innings by Kusal Perera and a world-record last-wicket stand to win a Test took Sri Lanka to a sensational victory over South Africa in the first Test at Kingsmead in Durban on Saturday, with Proteas captain Faf du Plessis then having to deny that it was a choke.
It continues the curious trend of all the away sides winning games.

Kei Nishikori continued his unbeaten debut week at the Rotterdam Open with a 6-3, 6-2 defeat of Hungary’s Marton Fucsovics on Friday to reach the semi-finals on the back of a performance he described as “almost perfect”.
Both teams rallied from being behind on the scoreboard.
