Sri Lanka secure draw
Tour match, Kimberley: Sri Lanka (272-9 dec & 239-4) drew with South Africa A (483-8 dec & 220-9 dec)

Sangakkara played a typically aggressive innings
Sri Lanka ended their opening tour match on a positive note, batting out a draw with South Africa A at Kimberley.

Set a near-impossible 432 to win with just 70 overs available, the tourists were 239 for four when bad light brought an early end to the final day.

First innings centurion Marvan Atapattu again top-scored with 88, the bulk of his runs coming in a 96-run partnership with Kumar Sangakkara.

The wicket-keeper took just 105 deliveries over his 70, with 11 boundaries, before he was caught off the bowling of Robin Peterson.

Peterson collected figures of three for 103 in 22 overs, taking his match total to seven.

The left-armer also accounted for Russel Arnold, whose 20 runs in the match will raise doubts as to his new role as an opening batsman, and Mahela Jayawardene for 39.
