Watch Sri Lanka vs South Africa 2nd Test day 2 highlights. S Africa vs Srilanka cricket highlights today. SL vs SA highlights. Angelo Mathews would be a touch disappointed after the first day of the second Test against South Africa. In spite dominating the first two sessions of play, the visitors has loosened the grip as the Proteas got almost 300 on the board with losing 6 wickets.
Dean Elgar and Quinton de Cock has done the bulk of the scores to give some relief to Faf du Plessis as his team lost 5 wickets for 169 runs only at a certain point of the game. Elgar and the attacking wicket-keeper Quinton de Cock had a century partnership for the sixth wicket. It was the 6th hundred for Dean Elgar. Losing the opening partner Stephen Cook for a duck, Elgar worked very hard to stay calm and anchor the innings for his team.
Hashim Amla continues his bad form with getting another decent start that couldn’t end up in a big innings. This no.3 was clean bowled off a Lahiru kumara delivery after scoring 29 runs. JP Duminy was dismissed five balls later in that very over by Kumara.
Captain Faf du Plessis had a solid and steady start. He played 119 balls to score 38 and departed by offering an easy catch to Mathews off Rangana Herath. Temba Bavuma is yet to make an impression in international cricket went for only 10 after playing 31 balls.
Lahiru Kumara was the standout bowler for the visitors with his 3 wickets. But he was pretty expensive considering the format of the game as he conceded more than 5 runs an over. Suranga Lakmal was decent with his pace deliveries as he claimed 2 wickets for 69 runs in 21 overs. Rangana Herath is the other wicket taking bowler with 1 for 34 runs. The Proteas are 297 for 6 after day one with having Quinton de Cock 68* and Kyle Abbott in the crease.
