Perera's innings also the highest by a Sri Lankan in a successful 4th-innings chase. Previously: 143*, Aravinda de Silva, v Zim, 1998-99.

Perera the 3rd player to make more than 50% of a successful 4th-inns chase of 300+ runs. Greenidge, 214* out of 344-1, WI v Eng, Lord's 1984. Butcher, 173* out of 315-4, Eng v Aus, Leeds 2001. Perera, 153* out of 304-9, SL v SA, Durban, today. Batting at 5. Unfeasible.

Certainly the greatest 6 not out I've ever seen

That was one of the most incredible passages of cricket I've seen. Kusal Perera rockets into the catalogue of greatest Test innings. The record for highest 4th-innings 10th-wicket stand to win a Test has been smashed. Was 57, now 78.

It's so romantic, I've even changed the second Z in my surname to a far more erotically-charged S...

An 8-for, and two 50+ scores, in a Test series: Albert Trott Vinoo Mankad Tony Greig Ian Botham (twice) Roston Chase. Chase is also the only player to take an 8-for but no other wickets in a Test series.

Before last week, Jimmy Anderson had been hit for six inside the first 10 overs of a Test innings only 4 times in 146 matches (Jaffer, 2007; Fleming 2008; Gayle 2009; Watson 2013). John Campbell has now done so in successive innings.

Since 2000, that's 3rd best balls/six figure of the 173 players with 10+ sixes in Tests, behind Southee and Afridi

West Indies' top 3 all out in the 40s - only the third time that a top 3 have all been out in the 40s in a Test innings (after Zim v SL, Harare 1994-95; India v Eng, Delhi, 1963-64).
