Commentary
  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Lakshan Sandakan to Tabraiz Shamsi. Googly length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Sri Lanka's emphatic victory is confirmed by the review.

    16 wickets have fallen today and South Africa after an encouraging morning have gone hurtling to defeat inside 29 overs in the afternoon session. South Africa have recorded their worst score since readmission. Sri Lanka opened the bowling with Dilruwan Perera (6-32) and Rangana Herath (3-38) and apart from five balls from Lakshan Sandakan that was all they needed.

    South Africa will be massively disappointed with that batting display. Too many batsmen looked unsure of their defensive technique and gave it away with reckless shots.

    The opening day of this Test was fairly even, but today it was all about the hosts. Their spinners left the South African batsmen in a daze, unable to cope with the nagging accuracy and subtle changes. Captain Faf du Plessis did his best to hold things together, but the Proteas folded for a feeble 126 all out. In response, Dimuth Karunaratne continued where he left off yesterday evening, stroking his way to another elegant half century to keep the pressure on the visitors. All told Sri Lanka's lead is a daunting 272, leaving South Africa staring down the barrel of a Test defeat barring something miraculous.

  • 36.3 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Roshen Silva. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot working, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. Oh my word, how has that gone through? Shamsi gets one to spit from the rough and it misses the stumps by a whisker. The umpire says there was a little inside edge on the way through, de Kock looks completely bemused.

  • 34.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. That's loose from Mathews, driving airily but he gets away with it as the edge soars wide of any catchers. Rabada is just trying to get the ball to reverse and there is a slight hint of it.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to third slip, by Amla. Got him, Karunaratne is finally drawn into making a mistake and Amla clings on at a wide slip. The extra pace of Rabada tends to make batsmen play loose strokes and that is exactly what has happened here. The left-hander pokes away from his body and the edge flies to the only man in the cordon.

  • 31.4 - Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to backward square leg for no runs, dropped catch by Markram, fielded by Bavuma. Was that a chance? The ball flies quickly off the inside edge and it's basically past Markram before he can even react. He throws a hand out in hope but it parries away to safety.

  • 27.3 - Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot dropped, to short extra cover for 1 run, fielded by de Kock. Another half century for Karunaratne, what a match he is having. The left-handed opener is still yet to be dismissed and has taken his match tally to well over 200 runs. He is making it look simple on a surface that is anything but.

  • 27.2 - Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot working, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Markram.

  • 27.1 - APPEAL! Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Amla, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal, Maharaj is getting vicious turn out of the footmarks. Too much in fact for this LBW shout.

  • 23.4 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock ball half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. Now he drives back past the bowler with power and grace, this is an imperious display by Karunaratne. He doesn't look in any trouble at all out there and now he is really asserting himself against the bowlers.

  • 23.3 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump moves in front sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Paddle-swept fine, Karunaratne manufactures the ball into the gap with ease. He adjusted well there because the ball was slightly shorter than he expected, but still the opener was able to execute well.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock length ball, to leg on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, that's another ripping delivery from Maharaj to snare Mendis for a duck. South Africa will have some belief now as things were slipping away from them. This is another beauty, similar to the one that got Dhananjaya but this time Mendis is looking to prod forward. The ball dips and opens him up, though, and the umpire has no hesitation raising the finger. Mendis asks for the review but it's more out of hope than expectation, and it can't save him.

    We take drinks now for the final time today. They will taste much sweeter for the Proteas after that double-strike.

  • 21.4 - Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Markram.

  • 21.3 - Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, to leg no foot movement defending, missed to. Got him with a beauty, Maharaj lets out a roar in delight. This has drifted, turned and bounced to pass the outside edge and clip the off bail, a fantastic sight for any spinner. Dhananjaya might look back and wonder if he could've got further forward, the right-hander was stuck in the crease instead of looking to smother the ball. That will lift the spirits of the tourists late in the day.

  • 21.1 - Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Elgar.

  • 19.6 - SIX! Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long on for 6 runs. Bang, nailed it all the way for six. Dhananjaya spotted the flight early so skipped down with quick feet, and then hammered the ball resoundingly over the ropes. That's the kind of freedom you can bat with when your side is so far ahead in the match.

  • 19.5 - Keshav Maharaj to Dhananjaya de Silva. Stock length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Markram.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Keshav Maharaj to Danushka Gunathilaka. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track Slog, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket, by Rabada. He's given it away, that's an awful stroke by Gunathilaka. He never really looked settled during his innings and now a rush of blood has caused his downfall. Maharaj gave this one a bit of flight and the left-hander fancied smashing it out of the park, but could only skew it high into the air. Rabada tracked it well, making good ground to his left and then gobbled it up with ease.

    Tea time on Day Two in Galle with Sri Lanka stretching their lead to 186. South Africa came out needing early wickets but found the obdurate Karunaratne back in the groove, and they didn't help their cause by dropping Gunathilaka. It's been a perfect day for the hosts so far, meaning the tourists need a big response this evening.

  • 7.2 - Keshav Maharaj to Danushka Gunathilaka. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short fine leg for 1 run, dropped catch by Bavuma. Oh dear, nothing is going South Africa's way. Bavuma is normally the most reliable fielder in the world but he has dropped a sitter here, tumbling forwards at short fine leg and making an awful hash of it. It was a strange shot from Gunathilaka, played as if he didn't know the fielder was there, because he just scooped it into the air.

  • 7.1 - Keshav Maharaj to Dimuth Karunaratne. Stock ball back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Rabada.

  • 5.3 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Keshav Maharaj to Danushka Gunathilaka. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Huge appeal as Gunathilaka goes back to a ball he should be forward to. It rips off the pitch and cannons into the pad, but the umpire shakes his head at the appeal. The Proteas are in desperate need of early wickets so du Plessis has no choice but to review. It's a really tight one, but ball tracking shows umpires call on impact so the original call will remain.

  • 2.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, middle stump no foot movement pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. This is a moral victory for the bowler as he elicits a false stroke, but more importantly it's four runs to the total as the edge goes into the turf and down to third man.

  • 2.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot flick, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 1.3 - Dale Steyn to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, Spliced in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Philander. Gunathilaka is lucky to survive this, the ball just loops tantalisingly over the bowler's head.

  • 1.2 - Dale Steyn to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, to leg on the front foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Philander.

  • 1.1 - Dale Steyn to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off for 2 runs, fielded by Maharaj.

  • 0.1 - NEW BALL. FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Danushka Gunathilaka. Back of a length, middle stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Slashed powerfully behind square, that's how you kickstart an innings in style. Gunathilaka has license to bat freely with the hosts in such a strong position.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Suranga Lakmal to Dale Steyn. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, outside edge to first slip, by Mathews. That's a filthy swipe by Steyn, he loses his shape completely and virtually gifts his wicket to Sri Lanka. The tourists are all out for a paltry 126, meaning Sri Lanka have a monumental lead of 161 to take into the second innings.

    That was a pretty sorry batting effort by South Africa, unable to withstand the accurate spin bowling by the hosts. Faf du Plessis did his best with a stoic 49, but then was castled by the opposition captain as Suranga Lakmal nipped in with 3/21. Dilruwan Perera leads Sri Lanka off the field though, he was the pick with his 4/46. The Proteas will need to come out firing with the ball now if they want any chance of staying alive in this Test match.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Suranga Lakmal to Kagiso Rabada. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the back foot defending, missed to. Timber, Lakmal clatters the off stump once more as Rabada plays down completely the wrong line. The no-ball previous delivery has worked in the hosts favour, with the skipper getting a little nip back into the left-hander to clean him up.

    It's a very hot afternoon in Galle so time for the players to take a drinks break. South Africa still trail by a massive 164 runs with just one wicket remaining, meaning Sri Lanka are firmly on top in this contest.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, missed to. What a beauty, Lakmal gets in on the action in style. Du Plessis was fighting hard so it took something special to remove him, a gorgeous delivery that jagged back off the deck to clip the off bail after screaming between bat and pad. The South African skipper might have relaxed a touch against the seamer after spin had done all the damage so far, but there isn't much anyone could do about that. Sri Lanka are closing in on a massive first innings lead.

  • 49.6 - Dilruwan Perera to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 49.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Silva.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Vernon Philander. Off break back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to. The stubborn resistance has ended, Philander has to trudge off. Dilruwan has been swapping between over and round the wicket, and it is the latter angle that has provided the success. Big Vern was back in the crease and looking to work the ball square, and once he'd missed it always looked plumb. He decides to review after consulting with his skipper, but it can't save him. Perera gets his fourth wicket of the day, he's having a great time.

  • 49.3 - Dilruwan Perera to Vernon Philander. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short leg for no runs, fielded by Mendis.

  • 48.4 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge past third man for 4 runs. Edged at a perfect catching height but straight into the gap between the lone slip and gully. Lakmal has no one to blame but himself, he knows he should have had another catcher in there. South Africa starting to get the rub of the green now as this partnership frustrates the hosts.

  • 48.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, to second slip for no runs, fielded by Mathews.

  • 48.1 - FOUR! Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. Lakmal comes into the attack and you can almost sense the relief from du Plessis. He is much more comfortable against the fast bowlers, straight away getting into a great position to punch the ball through cover.

    What a morning session for Sri Lanka. They walk off for lunch with big smiles on their faces, having taken five South African wickets this morning to rip through the top and middle order. The Proteas were caught in a spin, unable to deal with the trio of Herath, Perera and Sandakan. Faf du Plessis and Vernon Philander have fought hard to put a stop to the carnage, but they still find themselves a long way behind at the interval.

  • 36.5 - Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, shy attempt by Gunathilaka.

  • 36.4 - Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, well timed to deep cover for 2 runs, fielded by Gunathilaka.

  • 36.3 - Suranga Lakmal to Vernon Philander. Length ball, outside off stump no foot movement defending, to silly point for no runs.

  • 35.5 - FOUR! Rangana Herath to Vernon Philander. Stock ball half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. Hammered through the offside, that's Philander's best stroke of the day so far. Herath gave this plenty of air, allowing Philander to get his foot to the pitch and drive with the confidence he wouldn't be beaten by the turn.

  • 35.4 - Rangana Herath to Faf du Plessis. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, well timed to mid off for 1 run, fielded by Lakmal.

  • 33.4 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Rangana Herath to Vernon Philander. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Another loud appeal and this time the finger goes up, Philander pays the price for going back to a fairly full ball. He was shaping to cut but the ball clearly hit his back pad first. We have a review though, Philander thinks he might have managed to get outside the line of off stump. And replays confirm he is correct, an excellent review by the tourists.

  • 31.3 - Rangana Herath to Vernon Philander. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 31.2 - APPEAL! Rangana Herath to Vernon Philander. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, bat-pad to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Gunathilaka, appeal made for L.B.W. Polite appeal, no one is quite sure whether that hit bat or pad first. In the end there is no review, but replays show it definitely hit pad first and probably would've been overturned. That's three times today Sri Lanka have failed to use a review when they could have done so successfully.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Dilruwan Perera to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, missed to. What a nut that is, unplayable delivery from Dilruwan as the procession of South African batsmen continues. This is the dream delivery for a right-arm offspinner to a left-handed batsmen - it drifts in to pitch on middle, and then turns violently to pass the outside edge and clatter into the off stump. Gorgeous to watch for everyone apart from du Plessis at the other end.

  • 21.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Quinton de Kock. Off break length ball, outside off stump down the track working, missed to first slip for no runs, shy attempt by Mathews.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lakshan Sandakan to Temba Bavuma. Chinaman length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, bottom edge to. Dragged on, Sandakan strikes second ball to leave the South African innings in tatters. It's a wild sweep from Bavuma, looking to hit the ball hard but only able to get a little bottom edge on it as the ball was very full. Probably not the right length for the shot in the end. At the other end, du Plessis can hardly believe what he is seeing.

    Phew, what an hour that was. All-action stuff in Galle as Sri Lanka take a firm hold on this Test match, courtesy of some superb spin bowling and ordinary strokeplay. The Proteas have time to regroup now as we reach drinks.

  • 20.1 - Lakshan Sandakan to Temba Bavuma. Chinaman back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by Dickwella.

  • 19.6 - FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Faf du Plessis. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep backward square leg for 4 runs. Swatted disdainfully behind square, du Plessis really needs to play a captain's knock here. He looks in the mood for it.

  • 19.5 - Dilruwan Perera to Temba Bavuma. Off break length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on for 1 run, fielded by Silva.

  • 19.4 - Dilruwan Perera to Faf du Plessis. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Herath.

  • 18.2 - APPEAL! Rangana Herath to Temba Bavuma. Stock length ball, off stump on the back foot working, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Dickwella, appeal made for L.B.W. Massive appeal again, this is getting silly. No review this time, although ball tracking shows it would've crashed into leg stump. An opportunity missed for the hosts there.

  • 18.1 - APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Rangana Herath to Temba Bavuma. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to first slip for no runs, by Mathews, appeal made for Caught. It's all happening in Galle, spin is wreaking havoc. Sri Lanka think there might be another inside edge on this one before it loops to Mathews at slip. They aren't as sure this time but take another punt on a review. The Proteas breathe a sigh of relief as replays show Bavuma is not out, and Sri Lanka lose a review.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Dilruwan Perera to Hashim Amla. Off break back of a length, outside off stump down the track working, bat-pad to short leg, by Mendis. Vocierfous appeal, the Sri Lankans are pleading with the umpire but he just shakes his head. Was there a little bit of bat or glove on this? We will find out as there is a review. Dilruwan fired this one through quickly, causing issues as Amla had taken a step down the pitch. At first look it seemed to balloon up off the pad, but replays show a thin brush of the inside edge before it is safely taken by the man under the lid. Classy as ever, Amla apologises for not walking as he didn't feel the edge. The Sri Lankans are running riot this morning, South Africa in a spin.

  • 17.5 - APPEAL! Dilruwan Perera to Hashim Amla. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot sweeping, hit pad to silly point for no runs, fielded by Mathews, appeal made for L.B.W. Big appeal but Amla managed to get outside the line as he went for that sweep.

South Africa are definitely looking to be more aggressive now, this is really positive stuff. Amla skips down and then thumps the ball resoundingly over the top.

  • 12.6 - FOUR! Rangana Herath to Temba Bavuma. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Repeat dose, wonderful batting.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Dean Elgar. Off break half volley, middle stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Mathews. The bucket hands of Mathews gleefully accept another catch, Sri Lanka are on fire this morning. That is a massive wicket for the hosts early in the piece, exposing the middle order of South Africa. It was very full, almost a yorker in fact, and the left-hander was looking to smother it but the ball turned viciously out of the footmarks to catch the edge. Real pressure on the visitors now.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Rangana Herath to Keshav Maharaj. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad to. Up goes the finger, Maharaj the nightwatchman can't last too long this morning. The wily Herath works his magic, getting this one to skid straight on and cannon into the pad. It's an easy decision for the umpire and the batsman walks straight off with no thoughts of a review. The hosts have their tails up as Hashim Amla strides to the middle.

Half an appeal but Sri Lanka aren't too vocal about it. Replays suggest that was plumb though, it would've been overturned with a review. Interesting.

    That was a thoroughly engrossing start to this Test series, and one which leaves things intriguingly poised heading into tomorrow. With the famous Galle fort looming over the ground from one end, South Africa must have felt as though Dimuth Karunaratne resembled another fortress at the crease. The left-hander was in prime form after returning from injury, solid in defense and confident in attack, helping him carry his bat for a sublime 158. At one stage it seemed as though Sri Lanka might fold for less than 200, but pesky lower order partnerships frustrated the tourists. There was plenty of spin on offer but it was Kagiso Rabada who was the pick of the bowlers, taking 4/50 including a ferocious double wicket maiden in the afternoon. The late wicket of Aiden Markram is a sign of the challenge to come for the Proteas, with their batsmen's techniques against spin coming into focus tomorrow.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Aiden Markram. Stock length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Mathews. Edged and gone, Sri Lanka strike late in the day and it's that man Herath. He is lethal in conditions like these, especially with a new ball in his hand. This is delightful bowling, drawing Markram into a defensive prod and getting the ball to rip enough to take the edge. Mathews completes the job at slip and Sri Lanka sense an opportunity for more before the day is done.

  • wicket: OUT! Stumped. Tabraiz Shamsi to Lakshan Sandakan. Googly length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, missed to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Finally South Africa finish off the innings. Sri Lanka's last two wickets have added over 100 runs and Dimuth Karunaratne has carried his bat for a sensational 158. Sandakan wanted to launch this out of the park but completely misread the googly, de Kock does the rest.

    Dimuth Karunaratne has become the fourth Sri Lankan to carry his bat in Test cricket with a terrific unbeaten 158 that has given the hosts a decent total. With a slow outfield and plenty of spin on offer, this will be tough work for South Africa after letting things slip a little towards the end of that innings. Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the Proteas attack, his 4/50 containing a double wicket maiden that ripped out the heart of the middle order.

  • 77.3 - FOUR! Dean Elgar to Lakshan Sandakan. Stock ball short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's a pretty ordinary delivery, Sandakan has plenty of time to wait deep in the crease and wallop the ball wherever he wants.

Has that carried to the man in the deep? It seemed as though Elgar had pulled off a remarkable catch but he instantly indicated he wasn't sure to the umpires. Karunaratne slapped it into the deep looking to up the ante, and the third umpire rules in his favour with the ball looking like it has touched the turf.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. What a snorter, Rabada gets his fourth with an aggressive short delivery. Lakmal was pinned on the back foot with nowhere to go, and in the end could only balloon the ball up off his glove. It's the simplest of simple catches for de Kock and the tourists will now be thinking about their batting with Sandakan the last man in.

    Drinks time in Galle. Dimuth Karunaratne continues to stand firm for Sri Lanka, and he is receiving some useful support from skipper Suranga Lakmal. South Africa will want to get batting in the not too distant future but they need to take two wickets first.

You can't bowl full tosses to a man who has just reached three figures. Karunaratne's eyes light up before he wristily thumps the ball through mid wicket. Easy pickings.

  • 54.3 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Chinaman length ball, middle stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long on for 4 runs. Fantastic stroke, a fitting way for Karunaratne to reach his century. The left-handed opener leans into a glorious drive that defies the slow outfield to zip to the fence.

  • 52.6 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Suranga Lakmal. Chinaman full toss, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. A rare boundary and something for the local crowd to cheer. Shamsi looks for some extra loop and flight but sends down a full toss that the Sri Lankan skipper belts into the gap at extra cover.

  • wicket: OUT! Run Out. Tabraiz Shamsi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Chinaman full toss, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid on, fielded by Philander, by de Kock. Oh dear, an awful run and Herath looks to be well short of his ground here. That's probably the first mistake Karunaratne has made all day, calling Herath through for a quick single when he isn't the fastest and the ball was hit quite hard to mid on. Philander fires in the throw and de Kock has the bails off in a flash, the third umpire confirms what the hosts feared.

  • 50.2 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Chinaman half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Shamsi.

  • 50.1 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot slog sweeping, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Swatted with insouciance, Karunaratne marches on towards a superb century. He might just kick up a gear or two now that he is running out of partners.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Dilruwan Perera. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Got him, nonchalantly taken by de Kock as Philander takes the edge first ball back into the attack. Dilruwan narrowly survived the LBW in the previous over but there is no doubt about this one, a clear snick before the keeper casually clutches it with his right-hand. The Proteas continue to pick up wickets regularly.

  • 46.6 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Dimuth Karunaratne. Chinaman back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to deep mid wicket for 2 runs, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 46.3 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Tabraiz Shamsi to Dilruwan Perera. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Shamsi is right on target first ball back, ripping one into the new batsman and smashing into his front pad. The finger is raised but Dilruwan got a long way forward there and wants to review. It looked good in real time but ball tracking says it was spinning too much and would've missed leg stump. Another successful review from the hosts.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Tabraiz Shamsi to Niroshan Dickwella. Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Amla. Snaffled at slip, Shamsi gets rewarded for a fantastic spell of bowling. He's had Dickwella in all sorts of bother in the last 40 minutes and now finally is able to take the edge. Dickwella couldn't fully commit to getting forward and pays the price, as sharp turn takes the edge and Amla accepts it with a smile.

    As Dickwella trudges off the field the rain begins to fall and the covers come on. That will make his dismissal all the more disappointing for the hosts, with South Africa now firmly on top on Day One. We'll keep our fingers crossed that this rain passes quickly and we can resume the action soon. In the meantime, tea will be taken a little bit early after a fantastic session for the tourists.

Chinaman length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. Another massive appeal, the South Africans are convinced this is out but the umpire is convinced otherwise. There was a noise on the way through, but it certainly wasn't an edge as replays show a clear gap between bat and ball. A wasted review by the tourists, but encouraging signs as Shamsi is causing Dickwella severe issues.

  • 38.3 - Tabraiz Shamsi to Niroshan Dickwella. Chinaman half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Philander.

  • 37.6 - FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, down leg side on the front foot glancing, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Neatly nurdled around the corner, Karunaratne uses the pace expertly as he carries on his merry way.

    Time for drinks in Galle, where South Africa have had a superb hour to rock the hosts. Two wickets in an over from Kagiso Rabada and one for Dale Steyn has left Sri Lanka with plenty of work to do. Dimuth Karunaratne is standing firm, but he needs to find someone to stick around with him.

  • 37.5 - Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Short, down leg side on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 37.4 - Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot driving, well timed to deep backward point for 3 runs, fielded by Elgar.

  • 37.1 - APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Kagiso Rabada to Niroshan Dickwella. Seaming away half volley, down leg side on the front foot working, hit pad to for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. Up goes the finger, Rabada is unplayable at the moment. Dickwella has reviewed this though, and he looks pretty confident. He fell over this full delivery slightly, closing the bat face as his head went to the offside. Ball tracking shows it pitched just outside the line of leg stump, so Dickwella survives by the skin of his teeth. The hosts breathe a big sigh of relief, that would've been a disaster to lose another at this stage.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Roshen Silva. Short, outside off stump on the back foot defending, inside edge to short leg, by Markram. Gobbled up by the man under the lid, Roshen Silva is gone for a two ball duck. Rabada is on fire in Galle, it's two wickets in three balls for him to start his spell in destructive style. Silva was looking to ride the bounce of this one but it got big on him, and Markram was alert to quickly react to the chance. The hosts are in some trouble now, the stoic Karunaratne powerless at the other end.

  • 35.2 - Kagiso Rabada to Roshen Silva. Short, outside off stump ducked, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. No looseners from Rabada to start his spell, he is right on the money first up to take the edge of Mathews' hesitant block. Steyn can take some credit for this wicket as well, he pushed Mathews back in the last couple of overs with some fiery short bowling, and as a result the batsman isn't as keen to get forward. Sri Lanka are in danger of wasting their decent start now as South Africa begin to flex.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Dale Steyn to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to mid on, by Rabada. Oh my word, what a tame dismissal that is. Test wicket number 420 for Dale Steyn as he closes in on the all-time record for South Africa, and he won't have had many gifted to him as easily as this. Mendis was just looking to clip the ball into the legside but he turns his wrists too early and the ball pops up for Rabada to take a simple catch. That's a really important breakthrough for the tourists, Mendis can be very dangerous.

  • 31.1 - Dale Steyn to Kusal Mendis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to deep backward point for 2 runs, fielded by Bavuma.

  • 29.5 - Dale Steyn to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Philander.

  • 29.2 - Dale Steyn to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Rabada. Fifty for Karunaratne, a really good effort on his return from injury. Sri Lanka have missed him at the top of the order. Now the left-hander will be looking to cash in on this start.

That's a big slice of luck for Karunaratne but he will pick up four more for his troubles. He was really rushed by Steyn on this occasion so can only get glove down the legside as he shaped to pull. On another day that could've looped into the gloves of de Kock.

  • 27.3 - FOUR! Dale Steyn to Dimuth Karunaratne. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. Prodded into the gap, Karunarante checked his stroke in order to stay in control of it. The extra pace of Steyn means it scoots to the boundary, the first of the afternoon.

  • 25.6 - FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Kusal Mendis. Stock ball full toss, off stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That's a tasty delivery for Mendis to tuck into on the verge of the lunch break, a juicy full toss that is duly dismissed to the mid wicket rope.

    That was a gripping session in Galle, a great start to this Test series with something on offer for everyone. The fast bowlers found some nip to start with, Kagiso Rabada able to make the breakthrough just before the hour mark after getting one to soar through and kiss the edge. Then the spinners came into play, with turn and bounce making things difficult for the batsmen. Tabraiz Shamsi produced the delivery of the morning, ripping one back through the gate to give the Proteas their second moment to celebrate. Dimuth Karunarante has shown there are runs to be made on this surface with a bit of determination, he will be the key wicket this afternoon.

  • 24.1 - FOUR! Tabraiz Shamsi to Kusal Mendis. Chinaman short, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Dragged down, Mendis is too good to miss out on the opportunity to release the pressure. The ball keeps a tad low but the right-hander is in a decent position to adjust and swat the ball into the gap.

What a ripper, straight through the gate to rattle the off stump. Gorgeous bowling by Shamsi, this is the kind of delivery he will have dreamt about last night. It's flighted to draw de Silva into the drive, but then it dips and spins violently to roar past the inside edge and spark South African celebrations. Kusal Mendis comes to the crease, this is a crucial little spell before lunch now.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Danushka Gunathilaka. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. Got him, Rabada does the trick for the tourists with a vicious delivery that really spits off the deck. Gunathilaka is drawn into a tentative prod as the ball rears up to kiss the edge through to de Kock. The Proteas needed that as the two left-handers were looking in control. Once again it is the young Rabada who does the business for his country.

  • 10.3 - Kagiso Rabada to Danushka Gunathilaka. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Bavuma.

  • 6.1 - FOUR! Vernon Philander to Danushka Gunathilaka. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, well timed for 4 runs. Nudged off the hip, that's gone fine and quickly to the boundary rope. This is a good start for the hosts, it looks a great pitch for batting.
