    Lakshan Sandakan to Faf du Plessis. Left-Arm Leg Spin length ball, off stump on the front foot working, to square leg for 1 run, fielded by Perera.

    South Africa have completed a commanding victory in the First ODI against Sri Lanka in Johannesburg, cruising to their target just two wickets down and with lots of overs left in the bank. The total of 231 all out made by the tourists never looked like it was going to be enough and a serene partnership of 136 between Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis made sure of that fact. The South African skipper went on to make an unbeaten 112, his eleventh ODI century, as The Wanderers cheered him on in the afternoon sunshine. Sri Lanka made the mistake of dropping him early on and that sucked the energy from their performance, with the bowlers and fielders all looking fairly flat. Earlier in the day, Imran Tahir was excellent with the ball on a dry surface - his spell of 3/26 was as parsimonious as it was threatening. Sri Lanka contributed to their own downfall with the bat with soft dismissals costing them dearly, although Oshada Fernando played some eye-catching strokes on debut before Kusal Mendis' half century. They will need to improve on that in the Second ODI on Wednesday which takes place at Centurion.

  • 37.6

    FOUR! Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Slower length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Not the cleanest strike we've seen today but du Plessis picked his spot well. The end is nigh in Johannesburg.

  • 37.5

    FOUR! Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Fractionally short and du Plessis pounces on it in a flash. Crashed away with impunity, he is obviously seeing it pretty well now.

  • 35.4

    FOUR! Vishwa Fernando to Rassie van der Dussen. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. This just sits up begging to be hit and van der Dussen doesn't miss out. He virtually had time to ask his captain at the other end where he should hit it because it was so slow.

  • 35.3

    Vishwa Fernando to Faf du Plessis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, to short third man for 1 run, shy attempt by de Silva. There it is, an eleventh ODI century for Faf du Plessis elicits roars of delight from The Wanderers. It's been a serene innings by the Proteas skipper, taking the sting out of the Sri Lankan attack and finding the boundary regularly. Other than the one chance he gave early on he's been fantastic this afternoon.
