7:50 am on 21 July 2013

Kumar Sangakarra has celebrated his 350th one day international appearance with a career-best 169 as the Sri Lankan cricket side crushed South Africa by 180 runs in Colombo.

His innings was the third-highest by a Sri Lankan in 50-over cricket and came off 137 balls, with 18 fours and six sixes.

It carried the home side to 320 for five, a total South Africa never threatened as they were bowled out for 140 inside 32 overs.

The second one day international will be on Tuesday.
