    OUT! Caught. Rangana Herath to Dale Steyn. Stock length ball, outside off stump down the track driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to long off, by Gunathilaka. Herath ends with six. Steyn jumps out the crease again, nowhere near the pitch, and the connection isn't good this time. Sliced, and off the bottom end of the bat. Long on runs round to take a comfortable catch and finish off the match.

    A great fighting effort from South Africa today, with a pleasing maiden century from Theunis de Bruyn, but they were always going to be on the losing side after their first innings display. The hosts are experts in these conditions, on these pitches. Very tough for any touring side. An improvement from the first Test, but still a good beating handed out by Sri Lanka. They take it 2-0.

    SIX! Rangana Herath to Dale Steyn. Stock length ball, off stump down the track driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. Steyn is going to have some fun as well. He waltzes out the crease, and dispatches Herath over mid off. Hits the rope on the full.

    FOUR! Dilruwan Perera to Lungi Ngidi. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. Agricultural. Classic number eleven bashing. Goes with the spin, and mows it away to cow corner.

  • 85.2

    OUT! Caught. Dilruwan Perera to Kagiso Rabada. Off break length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to first slip, by Mathews. Extra bounce off the new ball, and the outside edge is taken from Rabada's defence. Loops up to Mathews at first slip, who snaps it up with ease. A decent knock from Kagiso, looked promising. Very simple dismissal to end his stay.

    Rangana Herath to Dale Steyn. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Herath.

  • 84.5

    OUT! Bowled. Rangana Herath to Theunis de Bruyn. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to. He's a genius in these conditions, is Herath. Rags the previous delivery miles past the outside edge. With that in the back of de Bruyn's mind, he withdraws the bat on this ball expecting a similar amount of spin off the surface. Rangana plonks it in the same spot, but get the ball to run on with the arm. Skids through to uproot the off stump, and send de Bruyn on his way.

  • 84.1

    FOUR! Rangana Herath to Theunis de Bruyn. Stock ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot sweeping, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. Deft touch to paddle the ball very fine, and it trickles into the rope to bring up a tremendous century. His first in Tests, and this innings will have definitely earned him a spot in the team for the foreseeable future.
