Sri Lanka "hold nerve to edge" South Africa .
In the above sentence what idiom is used and what is the meaning of the same ?
"To hold your nerve" means to remain confident, to not allow the excitement of the occasion make you nervous and make you play badly. Some people "lose their nerve" on important occasions and don't perform at their best.
"To edge" in a sporting context usually means to "beat by a small margin".
So the Sri Lankan team remained confident and didn't get nervous and, as a result, they beat the South African team by a small margin (I assume a small number of runs if this is cricket).
