South Africa v. Sri Lanka 2019

The first test just finished and was probably one of the best test matches I have ever seen. SL won by 1 wicket, but seemed to be out of the game from day 2 onwards. Included an all time great batting innings by Kusal Perera with 153* and a 78 run partnership for the final wicket.

Anyone else get a chance to see it? or have thoughts on the overall match/innings and where it may fall historically?

It would have to be one of the greatest innings of all time. Successfully chasing 300+ is a feat of its own, particularly with an unbeaten century and last wicket stand, but doing so against South Africa at home on a low-scoring pitch against a bowling attack with Rabada and Steyn is incredible.
