Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Vernon Philander to Nuwan Pradeep. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, missed.

    It's all over with Vernon Philander taking the final wicket of Nuwan Pradeep and they take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. South Africa have been superb throughout this Test match with centuries from Quinton de Kock and Dean Elgar as well as 10 wickets for Kagiso Rabada. It has been tough for Sri Lanka with the batsmen finding it the most challenging against world class bowling but Suranga Lakmal has been their one shining light with six wickets in the match. We now move onto Johannesburg which will be even tougher for Sri Lanka but lets hope they can put up a bigger fight than they have shown so far.

  • 45.2 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Upul Tharanga. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot defending, thick edge to third man for 1 run. Rabada was striving for that wonder ball first up to Tharanga but the batsman played it ok and got four for it.

    Hello and welcome to Day Four. Sri Lanka have found this pitch a real struggle which is shown in the scoreline. They will resume today on 130-4 still requiring another 377 runs to win or to bat out two full days if they go for the draw. The main positive for them is that they have their two most experienced batsmen at the crease in Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal but with the South African bowlers fresh and bowling brilliantly it is not going to be easy.

  • 39.6 - FOUR! Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Sri Lanka survive to stumps, but significant damage has been done to their top order. Four wickets have fallen in their second innings, leaving South Africa with six left to take to wrap things up and seal the series. A fiery spell from Kagiso Rabada followed Vernon Philander's new ball double-strike, to leave the tourists tottering. Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal combined to weather the storm, bringing back memories of their rearguard effort at Chester-le-Street last year. They ended up losing that Test and it seems almost certain they will lose this one, but the desire and heart shown this evening will surely inspire their side. Suranga Lakmal is another man who can hold his head high, he took 4-69 earlier in the day to stall the Proteas progress in setting up a declaration. Despite ducks from Hasim Amla and Temba Bavuma, the hosts were still able to set a target of over 500. Back tomorrow for what, in all likelihood, will be the final day.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Kagiso Rabada to Dhananjaya de Silva. In-swinging full toss, to leg on the front foot flick, hit pad.

    Here we go again, Sri Lanka on the ropes. It was this time yesterday that they had an almighty collapse, another one looks on the cards here. Rabada is charging in, bowling extremely quick. He was aiming for a searing yorker but slightly overpitches it as de Silva misses the low full toss. He is hit in front of leg stump and up goes the finger. They think about a review but in the end de Silva trudges off. Ball tracking shows that would have in fact missed leg, so a rare poor decision from the umpire. An even worse decision not to review it though. Sri Lanka in the mire.

    Rabada's the man, he gets the breakthrough and dismisses Silva for the second time in the match. This was a real nasty delivery, rearing up at the batsman from just back of a length. Silva can only punch it off his glove, leaving Cook to run around from short leg and take the simplest of catches. The opener had really dug in well there, but the pace of young Rabada forces the wicket.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Kusal Mendis. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by Elgar.

    Got him, another Sri Lankan falls to a disappointing stroke. When will they learn to not drive Philander on the up? This is almost an action replay of his dismissal in the first innings at Port Elizabeth, the young man not learning his lessons. Elgar snaffles it at third slip and South Africa are well on the way to a resounding victory.

    Tea time in Cape Town, plenty happening in that afternoon session. South Africa played a wide array of strokes despite the regular wickets falling, eventually declaring with a lead of 506. The Sri Lankan openers weren't able to make it to the break unscathed, Vernon Philander castling Dimuth Karunaratne for six. Another long evening session ahead of us, the Proteas will be confident of making further inroads tonight.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Vernon Philander to Dimuth Karunaratne. In-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge.

    Timber, leg stump goes cartwheeling towards the keeper. Fantastic bowling from Philander, swinging lavishly back to the left-hander and catching a little inside edge on it's way to the sticks. It was a real loose shot from Karunaratne, looking for a big booming drive. Not a percentage stroke against the new ball.

    Philander drifts onto Karunaratne's hip, that's exactly where he likes them. He clips with a flourish to the fence at square leg.

  • 51.5 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Full toss, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Flicked to the mid wicket rope and that'll do for the Proteas. Faf calls in his troops, time for them to get to work with the ball. The lead is 506 and there is still a lot of time left in the game. Surely just a matter of time for South Africa to take ten wickets and go 2-0 up in the series. Sri Lanka will want to at least show more backbone than they did in the first dig, and put some overs into the hosts bowling attack.

  • 51.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Back of a length, outside off stump down the track Slog, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs.

    Violent swipe from Philander, effective too. Just about manages to clear Herath at mid on, any other fielder would have had a chance of a catch but not the diminutive spinner.

  • 51.3 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Chandimal, appeal made for Caught.

    Big appeal from behind the stumps, not much from the bowler though. Mathews says let's have a look upstairs. Nothing on the edge though, correct decision was made by the umpire.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal.

    Little edge and taken, Sri Lanka continue to chip away at South Africa. A touch of extra bounce from Kumara, and de Kock's slash gets a thin edge through to the keeper. Impressive pace once again from the young bowler.

  • 46.2 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Keshav Maharaj. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Shot. Maharaj played a few of these in the first innings, he's very strong with the back foot punch. This is crunched to the rope.

    Sloppy from Sri Lanka. It was a powerful drive from de Kock but the fielder at cover puts in a tame attempt at stopping it. Lakmal the guilty man.

    Lakmal gets his fourth, it's that channel again on a fifth stump line. Du Plessis was looking to push into the offside for a quick single but gets an edge through to Chandimal, who takes it diving to his right. No declaration as of yet from South Africa.

    Just slightly back of a length and de Kock is waiting for it, hitting a rasping pull shot in front of square. The fielder in the deep doesn't have far to go but it is hit so well he can't get there.

    The charge is well and truly on, the crowd is getting into this. Du Plessis thumps a drive with extreme power, and the placement is spot on.

  • 40.4 - FOUR! Rangana Herath to Quinton de Kock. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Languid swing of the arms from de Kock, nails it over mid wicket. Picks the gap with perfection too for his first boundary.

  • 40.3 - Rangana Herath to Quinton de Kock. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump down the track driving, to cover for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 40.2 - Rangana Herath to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, off stump no foot movement pushing, to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by Silva.

  • 39.6 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs, mis-fielded by de Silva.

    Faf continues to look for runs, guiding this into the gully region. The fielder can only palm it away and it goes for four, he really should've done better.

  • 39.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Kumara, fielded by de Silva.

  • 39.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Glorious from du Plessis, Newlands roars in delight. Driven on the up, he just stands and admires it as the ball rockets to the fence.

  • wicket: OUT! Run Out. Rangana Herath to Temba Bavuma. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, to mid off, direct hit by de Silva.

    Bavuma takes on the fielder at mid off, there is a direct hit and this looks close. The third umpire is called for. Bavuma put in a big dive to try and make his ground but the bat bounced up as a result, it's in the air as the bails come off so he is gone. Great fielding by de Silva to hit the sticks, he's a gun fielder for the tourists. Quinton de Kock to the crease.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Suranga Lakmal to JP Duminy. Yorker, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad.

    Fired in full and straight, Duminy gets blocked off trying to move the bat around his pad and is plumb LBW. Success for Sri Lanka on the verge of lunch. Duminy has a chat with his skipper and then tries to ask for a review, but umpire Tucker says they have taken too long so no review allowed. Not sure it would've mattered anyway, that looked dead. The only question was whether it had pitched outside leg but ball tracking shows it was a top decision.

    So an exciting end to the session as Sri Lanka took their fourth wicket of the day. Under normal circumstances that would be a great mornings work for them, removing the Proteas top four batsmen, but they are so far behind in the game that it just delays the inevitable declaration. Suranga Lakmal was outstanding, further proving his quality with three high class wickets. The hosts will probably look to increase their scoring rate further in the afternoon, and then unleash their bowlers.

  • 37.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to square leg for 1 run, shy attempt by Silva.

  • 36.5 - FOUR! Rangana Herath to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control past long off for 4 runs.

    Positive intent from du Plessis, getting well down the pitch and smashing this over Herath. Not perfectly timed, otherwise it would've sailed for a maximum, but a healthy chunk of willow on it.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Dean Elgar. Arm length ball, outside off stump down the track working, outside edge to slips, by Mathews.

    Herath strikes third ball, Elgar departs. Lovely bowling from the left-arm spinner, deceiving the batsman in the flight. Elgar was down the pitch looking to clip to leg but the ball dipped on him and went straight on to catch the shoulder of his bat. It loops to the skipper at slip who grabs it with a smile.

  • 30.2 - Rangana Herath to JP Duminy. Stock length ball, off stump down the track working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Karunaratne.

  • 27.6 - FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to JP Duminy. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs.

    This was bound to happen. Duminy rubs salt into the wound by lacing a drive through extra cover for four.

  • 27.5 - Nuwan Pradeep to JP Duminy. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 27.4 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Nuwan Pradeep to JP Duminy. Seaming in back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    Another beauty from Pradeep, this one nips the other way to wrap Duminy on the pads and up goes the finger. Duminy was late on the shot due to the previous ball seaming away. He asks for a review, height could be an issue. Yes, too high says ball tracking so even more frustration for Sri Lanka.

  • 27.3 - FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to JP Duminy. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, outside edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Chandimal, dropped catch by Karunaratne.

    Oh no, things really aren't going well for Sri Lanka. Pradeep produces his best ball of the day to take Duminy's edge, but keeper and first slip watch it sail between them, neither attempting the catch. Either one could've and should've taken it, but Duminy survives to bat on. Comical stuff from the tourists.

  • 26.5 - FOUR! Dhananjaya de Silva to Dean Elgar. Off break back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past third man for 4 runs.

    Super stroke to go to a half century, waiting and then guiding this very late. It's almost in the wicketkeeper's gloves by the time he plays a deft late cut to the boundary. What a series Elgar is having, Newlands applauds his efforts. He'll have one eye on getting a second century in the match.

    This shot is becoming a trademark of Duminy, a flowing drive with plenty of grace.

  • 23.6 - Nuwan Pradeep to JP Duminy. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Chandimal.

    Cracking delivery from Pradeep beats the edge to take us to drinks. Lakmal's double wicket maiden stalling the Proteas progress slightly but their lead is already approaching gargantuan. Elgar continues to look hungry for runs.

  • 22.5 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Dean Elgar. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Elgar showed in the first innings he is strong on the pull, Kumara hasn't got the message yet though as he digs this one in halfway down. Plenty of time for the opener to dismissively swat it well in front of square, he looks in imperious form.

  • 22.4 - Lahiru Kumara to JP Duminy. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 22.3 - Lahiru Kumara to JP Duminy. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Herath.

  • 21.6 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to JP Duminy. Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Well that's one way to get yourself off a pair, sheer arrogance from Duminy. It was marginally too short from Lakmal and the left-hander was onto it in a flash, shovelling it over mid wicket.

  • 21.5 - Suranga Lakmal to JP Duminy. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Herath.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal.

    And another, what an outstanding over from Lakmal. Similar to the first dismissal, this is a beautiful delivery. A tight line forcing Amla to play, curving away to kiss the outside edge. This time it is Chandimal with the catch, and that is something for Sri Lanka to cheer. Amla gone for a duck, much to the disappointment of the Newlands crowd his poor form continues.

  • 19.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Kumara.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Stephen Cook. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Karunaratne.

    Gone, caught at first slip. Cook had been vigilant in leaving Lakmal well alone all morning, but now the bowler is able to draw him in by tightening up the line to off stump. A little movement off the deck and the outside edge flies at a nice height for Karunaratne. Lovely bowling from Lakmal, not too much the batsman could do about that. That ends a lean Test match for Cook.

  • 16.3 - Lahiru Kumara to Dean Elgar. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to deep backward point for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

    A short break in play as Kumara sorts out some issues with his boots. The over rate was atrocious yesterday, already today it is slow.

  • 13.3 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Stephen Cook. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs, fielded by Silva.

    That will be stumps. On a day with howling winds at Newlands, South Africa huffed and puffed, and then blew Sri Lanka away. There was a whirlwind of atrocious shots from the tourists which didn't help their cause. Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada both helped themselves to four wickets apiece, as Upal Tharanga top scored with a paltry 26. That came after Quinton de Kock went to a superb century in the morning, pushing the hosts to a domineering 392 in their first innings. They were batting again by the close, Faf du Plessis electing not to enforce the follow-on, the openers having little issue in stretching the lead to 317. One of the most one sided days of Test cricket you are likely to see, as a rampant South Africa take control of the series.

    Big appeal from the tourists but this looked high at first glance, the umpire thinks so too. Mathews rolls the dice and asks for a review, but it comes to nought as ball tracking shows it was going over the top.

  • 10.1 - Lahiru Kumara to Dean Elgar. Full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Kumara.

  • 9.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Stephen Cook. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 9.5 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Stephen Cook. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot working, leading edge past third man for 4 runs, dropped catch by Mendis.

    Luck for Cook and frustration for Lakmal. The batsman was squared up, looking to play to leg but prodigious seam movement takes the edge. Mendis at second slip flings himself to his right but can't hold on one-handed. Would've been an early contender for catch of the year if he had managed to cling on. To make matters worse the ball shoots away to third man for four.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Nuwan Pradeep. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis.

    There we go, Philander finishes it off. Simple line and length, outside edge, gobbled up by Faf at slip. What a session for South Africa, they have run through Sri Lanka to dismiss them for 110. Philander and Rabada both finish with four, Maharaj played a superb supporting role to get two. Cook and Elgar charge off the field, so no follow-on enforced.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Vernon Philander to Lahiru Kumara. In-swinging length ball, off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms.

    Bowled him, Kumara inexplicably leaves one that crashes into leg stump. Philander ripping through the lower order at Newlands, the end is nigh for this Sri Lankan first innings.

  • 41.6 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Lahiru Kumara. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past long on for 4 runs.

    Classic tail-end batting from Kumara, clearing the front leg and having a big heave. It pays off, he's off the mark with four.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Suranga Lakmal. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Amla.

    Everything going South Africa's way now as Lakmal falls for a duck. Lovely bowling from Philander, in the channel drawing the batsman in and finding the edge. Elgar at third slip manages to palm it up and Amla takes the resulting dolly.

  • 40.3 - Vernon Philander to Suranga Lakmal. Seaming away length ball, off stump no foot movement defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Philander.

  • 40.2 - Vernon Philander to Suranga Lakmal. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Maharaj.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Vernon Philander to Rangana Herath. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad.

    Third appeal in a row off Philander and it's third time lucky for South Africa. He has slightly adjusted his line each time and this one traps Herath plumb in front. Herath asks for a review but that can't save him, the ball going on to clip the bails according to ball tracking. Excellent bowling from Philander to take us to drinks.

  • 38.6 - APPEAL! Vernon Philander to Rangana Herath. In-swinging back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    This one a much more vociferous shout from Philander, but the same response from the umpire. Possible heading down leg again, no review from Faf. Ball tracking says it would've just clipped leg.

  • 38.5 - APPEAL! Vernon Philander to Rangana Herath. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    Another half appeal but this is heading past leg stump.

    Loose from Philander, allowing Tharanga to help himself to four more through the offside. Left-handers love it there, room to free the arms and cut with power.

  • 36.2 - APPEAL! Vernon Philander to Upul Tharanga. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock.

    The procession continues, Chandimal the latest to play a rash shot and perish for it. No need to play at deliveries like this but the Sri Lankan was inexplicably throwing the kitchen sink at it. A thin edge finds a jubilant de Kock, and this has become an awful collapse.

  • 32.3 - Kagiso Rabada to Dinesh Chandimal. Back of a length, down leg side no foot movement flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 32.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Dinesh Chandimal. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, off stump down the track flick, hit pad.

    The spinner strikes again, what a job Maharaj is doing for his side. The batsman looking to repeat his flick over mid wicket is deceived slightly in the flight, meaning de Silva is wrapped on the back pad. The umpire raises the finger even though he was a long way down the pitch. They ask for a review but it is proven to be a great decision. Sri Lanka's top five all back in the shed now and not many runs are on the board.

  • 31.5 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, to silly point for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 31.4 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs.

    Super strokeplay, the fact that he used his feet previously causes the spinner to drag his length back, allowing him room to cut.

  • 31.3 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Elgar.

  • 31.2 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock ball back of a length, to leg on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Amla.

  • 31.1 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Aggressive intent from de Silva, using his feet and then his wrists to get his first boundary.

  • 29.6 - Keshav Maharaj to Dinesh Chandimal. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.

    Lovely drift from the spinner, almost trapping the batsman LBW but an inside edge saves him.

  • 28.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Pure quality from Chandimal, just a defensive push but it pings off the middle of the blade and speeds away for four.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis.

    Got him, Rabada on fire at Newlands. This was an effort ball, some extra pace behind it causing Mathews to fence at the ball away from his body. A healthy nick flies at head height to du Plessis who grabs it with glee. Another poor stroke from the skipper there. Sri Lanka in some real bother now as wickets have tumbled either side of tea.

  • 26.6 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Kagiso Rabada to Dhananjaya de Silva. In-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    Big appeal, that stayed very low as Mendis was caught on the crease. South Africa take a punt on a review but this looked to be heading down leg. Ball tracking confirms it was a good decision from the umpire and the hosts lose a review.

  • 26.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Dhananjaya de Silva. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot flick, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, run save by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to point, by Bavuma.

    What a start after the break. Not the greatest delivery from Rabada, short and wide, asking to be hit. Karunaratne climbs into it but can only slap it to a diving Bavuma who takes a screamer. That's 50 Test wickets for Rabada, great stuff from the young fast bowler. Perfect start to the final session of the day for the hosts.

  • 24.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Rabada.

  • 23.6 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Bavuma.

    There we go, that is Tea. A vital strike from the spinner in that over, that changes the complexion of the match a touch. The tourists had shown plenty of grit up to that point but Kusal Mendis' reckless stroke will leave them frustrated. Plenty of overs after the break, more determination needed from the batsmen.

  • 23.5 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Duminy.

  • 23.4 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed to short extra cover for no runs, run save by Duminy.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, top edge in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Duminy.

    Mendis gives it away, he won't want to see a replay of that shot. Looking to repeat his previous strike, this time gets a thick top edge that hangs in the air for an age. Duminy settles under it and pouches it safely. Huge wicket for the Proteas just before the end of the session.

  • 21.4 - SIX! Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control over deep mid wicket for 6 runs.

    Wow, where has that come from? Mendis decides attack is the way to go and launches into a slog sweep. It flies with the wind behind it, all the way for a maximum.

  • 21.3 - Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball half volley, middle stump down the track flick, well timed to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Bavuma.

  • 21.2 - Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Bavuma.

  • 20.6 - Wide Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Bouncer, outside off stump ducked, to fine leg for 5 runs.

    Too short, the bouncy wicket takes it out of de Kock's reach meaning it's five extras to the total.

  • 20.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Rabada.

  • 20.4 - Kagiso Rabada to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot flick, to fine leg for 1 run.

    Mendis off the mark from his 13th delivery, swivelling on a rare loose one from Philander to pick up four.

  • 18.6 - FOUR! Kyle Abbott to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Karunaratne releases some of the building pressure with a free swing of the arms, a languid cover drive that goes all the way to the rope.

  • 18.5 - Kyle Abbott to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Kaushal Silva. Seaming in back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge.

    Extra bounce does for Silva, Rabada the man to make the breakthrough. Silva is only a short man and can't get on top of this as the ball jagged back into him. It hits high on the bat and drops onto the base of middle stump, South Africa delighted with that. Newlands roars back into life, cheering on their side.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Lahiru Kumara to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming in back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, inside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal.

    Kumara wraps things up to finish with six wickets, an impressive display from the young quick. This nipped back to catch the inside edge of Rabada's bat, safely gobbled up by Chandimal with the gloves. That is the seventh catch the Sri Lankan wicketkeepers have taken between them.

    So the Proteas fall just short of 400 but they will be delighted with that total. Quinton de Kock came out blazing this morning, stroking his way to a fantastic century. He fell soon after but Keshav Maharaj continued to throw the bat, ensuring the hosts scored at a decent rate. Lahiru Kumara finished with extraordinary figures of 6-122 as South Africa were all out for 392. It's time for lunch now at Newlands.

    A change of ends for Kumara pays dividends immediately as he finds Philander's outside edge. A beaut of a delivery, moving away just enough off the deck. That means he gets a maiden five wicket haul in Tests, well bowled young man. An exciting prospect for Sri Lanka moving forward.

    Edged and gone, de Kock can't go on after reaching three figures. A lapse of concentration perhaps after getting to the milestone. It was a cracking delivery from Kumara though, just leaving the left-hander slightly from around the stumps. A thin outside edge just about carries to the keeper, and Sri Lanka get their eighth wicket.

  • 100.3 - Lahiru Kumara to Vernon Philander. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 100.1 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs.

    Newlands erupts, a century of supreme quality from Quinton de Kock, his third in Tests. This certainly wasn't his best shot to bring it up as he chopped it past his stumps to fine leg, but he won't mind one bit. He's made batting look easy, it's almost as if he's been playing on a different surface to the rest of his side. A moment to remember for the young left-hander.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Kyle Abbott. Stock ball back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal.

    Turn and bounce, edged and gone. Simple as that, Herath strikes early. He didn't even appeal actually, not sure he heard the edge but the umpire certainly did. Abbott has to depart after doing a good job last night, on the back foot he gets a little tickle on it through to the keeper.

  • 91.1 - Rangana Herath to Quinton de Kock. Stock length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Karunaratne.

    No messing around from de Kock this morning, he's into his work right away. He hammers a gorgeous cover drive into the gap and the ball rockets to the fence.

  • 89.6 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Kyle Abbott. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Raucous cheers to end the day from the home crowd, as Abbott finishes things in style. It was the double bluff from Kumara, setting the field for a bouncer and aiming at the base of the stumps. It's slightly off pitch though and Abbott is able to wack it through the legside and to the rope.

    That will be Stumps on Day One, after a fascinating start to international cricket in 2017. South Africa will certainly be the happier of the two sides, especially after losing the toss and having a little wobble before lunch. Under the shadow of Table Mountain, Dean Elgar played through most of the day akin to the landform, seemingly unmovable from the crease. He went to a career best after reaching his sixth Test century, only to nick behind late on. Quinton de Kock joined him in an enterprising partnership, with the wicketkeeper scoring a swashbuckling half century of his own, taking the wind out of the tourists sails. Lahiru Kumara showed some raw talent, taking three wickets during some fiery spells, but went at more than five an over along the way. Back tomorrow to find out how the Proteas lower order can hold up with the bat, and whether their quick bowlers can cause some havoc on a green wicket.

  • 89.5 - Lahiru Kumara to Kyle Abbott. Short, down leg side ducked, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 89.4 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Kyle Abbott. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    Abbott with a stroke Tendulkar would be proud of. A serene drive races to long off.

  • 88.2 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Kyle Abbott. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs.

    Lovely bowling, this decks back into Abbott and catches the inside edge. It misses the stumps by millimeters and rushes away to the fence. Frustration for Lakmal.

  • 88.1 - Suranga Lakmal to Kyle Abbott. Short, outside off stump swayed away, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

    Half an appeal from Sri Lanka but this just didn't look right. Well, Mathews decides to review anyway. A bit of a punt from the skipper, a roll of the dice late in the day. Plenty wrong with this LBW though, impact outside the line and going over the top.

  • 87.5 - Angelo Mathews to Quinton de Kock. In-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for no runs, fielded by Kumara.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Mendis.

    Edged and gone, beauty from Lakmal. He is very good with a new ball in hand. Angled across the left-hander and a bit of nibble off the surface, a thin edge is snaffled by Mendis with the gloves. Such is Elgar's desire for runs that he is seething with himself for getting out. He should be proud though, it's been an outstanding knock, putting his side on top in this contest.

  • 84.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 83.4 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Angelo Mathews to Quinton de Kock. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    Big appeal and up goes the finger. Gentle in-swing from Mathews, wraps de Kock on the pad in front of all three. The batsman asks for a review, it will be about ball tracking as there was no inside edge on that. Missing leg stump, unbelievable. Newlands lets out the biggest cheer of the day, Sri Lanka are gutted. The visitors really needed that, but de Kock gets a reprieve with a well used review.

  • 82.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    Elgar moves to a career best score with yet another masterful punch down the ground. The new ball speeds away over the lush outfield, straight as a dye and into the fence. That also takes the partnership past 100, at a decent run rate too. This could well turn out to be a match defining collaboration between Elgar and de Kock.

  • 82.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Quinton de Kock. In-swinging half volley, middle stump on the front foot driving, to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Mathews.

  • 82.1 - Suranga Lakmal to Quinton de Kock. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the back foot working, leading edge to gully for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

    Inches short of gully, the new cherry not quite carrying off the leading edge.

  • 80.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot defending, to gully for no runs, shy attempt by de Silva.

    Big mix up with the running, the batsmen seemingly meeting for a chat halfway down the wicket. It's all smiles in the end though as de Kock scampers back and is safely home. Almost a disaster there.

  • 80.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

    de Kock shouted for two as he played the shot, but even he is surprised with the timing as the ball scurries to the rope. Perfect placement meant no fielder could get close.

  • 79.5 - Dhananjaya de Silva to Dean Elgar. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot working, to long on for 1 run, fielded by Herath.

    Gorgeous little late dab from de Kock, a terrific way to go to a half century. He's been in fluent form this evening after a little luck early on. Worrying signs for the visitors.

  • 66.6 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past third man for 4 runs.

    That was a real mixed bag of an over from Kumara, showing his lack of experience. This is short and wide, de Kock tucks in and wallops a cut to the boundary.

    And now it's de Kock's outside edge, unbelievable. Pitched up by the bowler, inviting a drive and the batsman obliges. A healthy edge sails through where a third or fourth slip could've been.

    Oh this is close. Lakmal probing away outside the off stump manages to find de Kock's inside edge. The ball narrowly misses leg stump and rushes away to the fine leg fence. Very fine margins involved there.

    Huge appeal but a shake of the head from the umpire. Mathews fancies a review, that looked close. It was angled into the left-hander, de Kock looking to work across the line. Ball tracking shows impact was well outside the line of off stump, so not out remains and the visitors lose a review.

  • 62.1 - Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to gully for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Temba Bavuma. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to fine leg, by Tharanga.

    Another wicket for Kumara, an important strike for the tourists. Bavuma had looked busy during his short stay, but he has to depart now. It was dug in short by the young quick, rushing Bavuma as he looked to take it on. Bavuma was in an awful position to play a pull shot, and in the end could only scoop it to fine leg.

    The first shot of authority from Bavuma, using his feet to skip down and plant Herath over the top. It bounces just inches inside the rope, four to the total.

    Tea time in Cape Town. Another hard fought session at Newlands, Sri Lanka kept South Africa in check, not allowing the run rate to rise too much. They only picked up the one wicket, however, Faf du Plessis edging the evergreen Rangana Herath to slip. This game still evenly poised going into the evening.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Faf du Plessis. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to slips, by Mathews.

The dropped catch didn't deter him from going after this one, a floaty delivery that dipped and spun a little to take the edge. Mathews gobbles it up at slip and Sri Lanka celebrate. I'm sure Tharanga breathes a sigh of relief as well.

    Lunch time at Newlands after a fantastic morning of cricket. The session went one way and then the other as the two sides fought for supremacy. Suranga Lakmal struck an early blow, having Stephen Cook caught behind for a duck in the opening over of the day. Hashim Amla and Dean Elgar dug in to weather the storm, before Lahiru Kumara produced an over to remember. His double wicket maiden lifted the tourists spirits, meaning their lunch will taste a whole lot better.

  • 24.5 - Lahiru Kumara to Dean Elgar. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, well timed to deep backward square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Lakmal.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to JP Duminy. Short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Mendis.

    Kumara gets another, what an amazing over from the young man. Sri Lanka are absolutely delighted as Duminy falls for a duck. This was short and nasty with some extra bounce, Duminy was looking to ride it but it got big on him and caught his glove down the legside. Mendis had to dive full length to his right, stuck out a hand and the ball lodged in the webbing of his glove. Outstanding catch to back up a fantastic over.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lahiru Kumara to Hashim Amla. Seaming in length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, missed.

    Bowled him, great time for Sri Lanka to strike. Just as I say things are calming down a touch the young tearaway brings one back into Amla and demolishes the stumps. It was full and fast, pitching around off stump and Amla thought he could repeat his previous boundary. The ball jagged back in to go between bat and pad, smashing into middle and off. Kumara is really pumped up out there, bowling at impressive speeds.

  • 21.6 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by Fernando.

  • 21.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 21.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs.

    Easy as you like from Elgar, just a wristy clip that skips away to the rope. All of a sudden things looking a bit simpler for these batsmen as the lateral movement dies down a touch.

  • 21.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Silva.

  • 21.2 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to square leg for no runs, fielded by de Silva.

  • 20.6 - FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Hashim Amla. Half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs.

    Amla at his imperious best, worrying signs for the tourists as he looks to start 2017 in style. This was in the slot, a half volley, and he thumped it down the ground with a flourish.

  • 20.5 - Lahiru Kumara to Hashim Amla. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Tharanga.

  • 17.4 - FOUR! Angelo Mathews to Dean Elgar. In-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs.

    Lovely from Elgar, punishing the bad delivery from Mathews to take the partnership past 50. The Newlands crowd give their loudest cheer of the day in appreciation.

  • 14.2 - FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Hashim Amla. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Shot of the day, dismissive from Amla. He slapped it with nonchalance to the cover rope, the timing perfect. Not much foot movement from him, it was all about the hands through the ball. Beautiful to watch.

  • 14.1 - Nuwan Pradeep to Hashim Amla. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 12.6 - Nuwan Pradeep to Hashim Amla. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed to point for no runs, fielded by Lakmal.

    Time for drinks in Cape Town after a fascinating first hour. Lakmal got Sri Lanka off to the perfect start, having Cook caught behind in the first over. Since then Elgar and Amla have battled hard to minimise the damage. Plenty on offer for the bowlers but the batsman able to stick around with some application and concentration, Test cricket at it's best.

  • 12.1 - FOUR! Nuwan Pradeep to Dean Elgar. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs.

    Elgar looking to expand his game slightly now, driving on the up through the covers. It wasn't perfectly timed as he took one hand off the bat, but it was enough to reach the rope on this carpet-like outfield.

  • 11.6 - Angelo Mathews to Hashim Amla. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to extra cover for no runs, fielded by Herath.

    Superb over from the captain, asking questions of Amla every ball.

  • 10.6 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs.

    Expertly done by Elgar, just a defensive push but the timing is impeccable so he will get four. He's showed his quality so far this morning, playing compactly and waiting for opportunities to score.

  • 10.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Dean Elgar. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, well timed in the air under control to deep square leg for 2 runs, fielded by Kumara.

  • 8.1 - APPEAL! Suranga Lakmal to Hashim Amla. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to slips for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W.

    Cracking delivery from Lakmal, bringing one back into Amla to wrap him on the pads. There is a huge appeal but Rod Tucker, standing in his 50th Test, shakes his head. Good decision from him, the impact was marginally outside the line of off stump. Mathews realises this and decides not to review. Good signs for the tourists though.

    Glorious drive from Amla as he lays into this overpitched delivery. That's his first boundary of the day and it's vintage Amla.

    A stroke of authority from Amla, driving on the up after getting in a nice stride. The ball pulls up just short of the rope and they run three.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Stephen Cook. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Mendis.

    Edged and taken, what a start for Sri Lanka. Lovely shape from Lakmal from back of a length, drawing Cook into a tentative prod. It was a bit of a nervous shot from the opener, looking to feel bat on ball early on, he didn't need to play at it. The ball just does enough to kiss the outside edge which is safely pouched behind the stumps. That is just what Mathews wanted after inserting the Proteas.
