Pacemen Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel took four second innings wickets apiece to help South Africa beat Sri Lanka in the first Test of a two-match series.

Sri Lanka were set 370 to win in Galle but they struggled with the bat, with South Africa winning by 153 runs.

Steyn removed the two openers and, despite 76 from Kumar Sangakkara, the hosts were dismissed for 216.

Morkel finished with 4 for 29 and Steyn with 4 for 45 as South Africa took a 1-nil lead in the two-match series.

The victory provided Hashim Amla - the first permanent non-white captain of the Proteas - with a win in his first Test as skipper.
