De Bruyn joins Jonty, and Herath's fourth-innings bounty

101 - Theunis de Bruyn's score, which equals the highest by a South Africa batsman in the fourth innings of a Test match in Asia. Jonty Rhodes made 101 too, but he was unbeaten against Sri Lanka in Moratuwa nearly 25 years ago. Temba Bavuma's 63 also makes it to the top five.

133 - Runs scored by de Bruyn in 11 previous Test innings, against New Zealand, England and Australia. Coming into the second innings of this Test, his Test average was 13.3, with a highest of 48 and eight dismissals for less than 15.

123 - The sixth-wicket partnership between de Bruyn and Bavuma, which is South Africa's highest in the fourth innings of a Test in Asia. The only other century stand for them in Asia also came at the same ground nearly 14 years ago, when Mark Boucher and Boeta Dippenaar added 101. In terms of balls faced, the de Bruyn-Bavuma effort is fifth-best for South Africa in the fourth innings in Asia.


12 - Number of fourth-innings five-fors for Rangana Herath in Tests. No other bowler has more than seven. In terms of fourth-innings wickets, Herath has 115, which is second only to Shane Warne's 138. Herath's average of 18.08 is fourth among the 19 bowlers with 50-plus wickets in the fourth innings, next only to Bishan Singh Bedi, Curtly Ambrose and R Ashwin.
