Durban - Dean Elgar and Faf du Plessis shared a third-wicket partnership of 292 runs to put South Africa "A" in total control on the second day of their four-day match against Sri Lanka A at Kingsmead on Sunday.

South Africa finished the day on 425/6 for an overall lead of 255 runs after they had dismissed Sri Lanka for 170 on the first day.

Elgar (171 off 302 balls, 19 fours) completed his 16th first-class century and skipper Du Plessis (144 off 225 balls, 12 fours and 2 sixes) completed his eighth first-class century.

On the first day Rory Kleinveldt and Wayne Parnell had taken 7 wickets between them in 29 overs.

Sri Lanka were dismissed in only 41 overs which meant that Imran Tahir did not get the chance to bowl ahead of the Proteas’ tour of England.
