South Africa vs Sri Lanka, 1st Test – SL 191-all out (59.2 Ovs)


Tea, Day 2: The frustration ends for the Proteas, but Lasith Embuldeniya and Rajitha in particular deserve a lot of credit. The former is just debuting, but he was there to fight blow after blow after blow. The Proteas kept peppering with bouncers, both got hit a number of times but they didn’t relent. They showed how the top-order should have fought. Kusal Perera’s blitz was also key to Sri Lanka getting closer but South Africa will be happy to have got a 44-run lead out of 235. Steyn missed his fifer, Elgar dropped one and denied him the fifth.
Rabada to Lasith Embuldeniya, out Caught by Steyn!! In the air and taken at mid-off. So there were some negative powers transferred in that punch of the gloves from Rabada previous ball. Full ball from Rabada, Embuldeniya stayed leg-side and wanted to loft over the top, sliced the ball than middling it. Lasith Embuldeniya c Steyn b Rabada 24(63) [4s-4]
