Cricket news - Live Cricket Score: South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test, Day 3, Port Elizabeth

South Africa need seven Sri Lankan wickets to win.

SRI LANKA CREATE HISTORY! Mendis and Fernando share an unbeaten 163-run stand to lead them to a 2-0 win over South Africa! They become the first Asian Test nation to beat South Africa in South Africa. What a Test it turned out to be. But on Day 3, Mendis and Fernando made it look exceptionally easy as they walked over SA with ease, picking up an eight-wicket win.

Mendis remained unbeaten on 84, while Fernando was on 85. That concludes a spectacular effort from Sri Lanka in the two-match series. They won comfortably in Durban and have done the same in Port Elizabeth. Hats off to the side that bounced back so well after they were recently drubbed in Australia. Thank you for your company through the two-odd days.

150-run stand between the two up now... Sri Lanka need 11.

EDGED AND DROPPED! Mendis handed a life. Was cut away to get the outside edge that flew to slip. Amla jumped and got a hand to it, but couldn't hold on. 31 to win.

Inching closer

Half-centuries for Mendis and Fernando... Sri Lanka now from touching distance of a win .The visitors are inching ever closer to what could be awe-inspiring victory. A couple of times Mendis and Fernando got away with mistimed lofts but the duo continued to play with a touch a bravado. Mendis stayed back and cracked a crunching cut off Maharaj. The tourists need less than 80...

100 up for Sri Lanka. They now need lesser than 100 to win. Can South Africa strike and slow things down?

First half hour done, and Sri Lanka have made a steady start. Still need just over 100 runs. Fifty-run stand up between Mendis and Fernando.

The teams are in the middle. The first hour is going to be crucial. Duanne Olivier to kickstart proceedings.

Hello and welcome to Day 3 of the second Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka. It's amazing how quickly this Test has progressed. We're just getting into Day 3 and a result is inevitable with Sri Lanka needing 137 to win, and making history, or South Africa needing 7 wickets.

As many as 18 wickets fell on Day 2, ending with Sri Lanka on 60/2. Given they are one batsman short, South Africa will need only seven more to level the series. Can they do it or will Sri Lanka prevail to become the first Asian side in history to bag a series win in South Africa? Join us in a bit to find out.
