Watch SA v SL 3rd test day 1 full HD highlights today 1-12-2017, from New Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (South Africa) Thursday 12th January 2017. South has already won the test series because the tour match of Sri Lankans had been drawn, First test South Africa won by 206 runs. Second test South Africa won by 282 runs. Now the third and final test will start from today. K Rabada from SA is the most wicket taker from both teams with 14 wickets. VD Philander took 13 and RAS Lakmal from SL took 12 in the last two test matches. D Elgar scored 281 runs, Q de Kock 236 and SC Cook 206.
There is a dusting of green on the Wanderer’s surface, which suggests it will hold together nicely through the five days, and prevent Rangana Herath from becoming a major threat. There is a chance of rain on Friday and Saturday, but the forecast is good for the remaining days. Sri Lanka will likely keep the same XI. There is an outside chance Dushmantha Chameera will replace Nuwan Pradeep, but that’s only if Chameera has regained his rhythm, which was off in Port Elizabeth. Wayne Parnell will take Kyle Abbott’s place in the XI, and South Africa may also consider playing four quicks, to the exclusion of Keshav Maharaj.
Toss: South Africa win the toss and bat.
