5. DIMUTH KARUNARATNE:
Continuing his fine form from the first test, Karunaratne made two half-centuries in the second test match against South Africa. He scored 53 runs in the first innings and another 85 runs in the second innings, for which he was adjudged as the Man of the Match.
He was the highest run-getter in the two Test match series, scoring 356 runs at an average of 119. Since he scored these runs in tough batting conditions, he was rightly chosen as the Man of the Series. Sri Lanka won the series 2-0 against South Africa.
