South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test
South Africa ,STUMPS! Sri Lanka lost the big wicket of Perera just on the brink of stumps, ending the day on 60/3. It was a fascinating day of cricket that saw 13 wickets fall. After bowling out Africa for 222, Sri Lanka got off to a steady start, but then lost three wickets as roared back into the contest. Sri Lanka was led by Thirimanne’s unbeaten 25 and will resume Day 2, trailing by 162.
BOWLED HIM! Olivier with the wicket. Beautiful from him to get Oshada Fernando, who inside-edges a ball angling in onto his stumps. Sri Lanka lose their second. Departs for a duck.
ALL OUT! South Africa are all out for 222. Fernando has his third wicket, and that caps off a brilliant, spirited performance from the visitors. Dickwella catches Olivier behind the stumps to wrap up proceedings. After the start, they kept South Africa under constant check. They faced resistance from Markram, du Plessis and de Kock, with three substantial partnerships, but found ways to come back and pick up wickets. Rajitha and Fernando finish with three apiece. Join us in a bit for Sri Lanka’s innings.
BREAKTHROUGH IS HERE! De Kock cannot believe it. He has to go for 86 (off 87) – bowled by Dhananjaya de Silva. Sri Lanka once again strike when the partnership is building and South Africa seems to get a move on. Big wicket.
