South Africa scored 286 runs in their first innings all out in 98.5 overs. Sri Lankan bowlers do so good job, RAS Lakmal took five wickets in 27 overs with 63 runs.
N Pradeep and HMRKB Herath took two wickets each of them. Q de Kock contributed 37 runs and out then it was 98.5 136.3 kph, cleaned up! Fantastic delivery to end the innings. Pradeep gets his yorker in from around the wicket, spears under de Kock’s bat as he tries to jab down and the off stump goes flying. Great sight for Pradeep 286/10.
Sri Lanka scored 181 runs in 57 overs with the run-rate of 3.17 which is good but they lost seven wickets. Yesterday because of bad light and dark clouds play had been stopped when almost 20 overs were still remaining. FDM Karunaratne opener od SL team gone with scoring five runs, JK Silva contributed 16 runs, MDKJ Perera scored 7, BKG Mendis gone with duck.
AD Mathews captain himself played good and scored 39 runs and out when 31.1 139.8 kph, edged, taken at third slip! That will help lift Rabada. A loose poke from the Sri Lanka captain. It was full, quite wide outside off, Mathews pushing well away from his body and the edge is grabbed low down by Elgar 94/5.
