Sri Lankan bowlers bundled out South Africa for their lowest total in recent years, winning the first Test match on day three by 278 runs on Saturday in Galle stadium.

 

Offspinner Dilruwan Perera's career-best of six for 32 helped Sri Lanka top the two Test match series after the visitors were bowled out for 73 runs.

 

The hosts made 190 all out in their second innings to set a target of 352 for South Africa to win.

 

South Africa's lowest total of 79 runs was against India in 2015.
