South Africa had resumed at 267 for six.
Maharaj edged an away swinger to wicketkeeper Dinesh Chandimal to give Lakmal his fifth wicket and Abbott was run out after a mixup with Quinton de Kock.
Quinton de Kock was last man out for 37, trying to keep the strike and playing across the line of a yorker from Pradeep. But the hosts hit back almost immediately as Philander and Abbott ripped into their batting. Both gained appreciable movement through the air and off the pitch as three wickets fell in the first eight overs before captain Mathews joined a patient Kaushal Silva
Herath 20-4-48-2, Dhananjaya de Silva 3-0-12-0.

to add 39 runs for the fourth wicket. Silva was the only one of the top four in the Sri Lankan batting order to show a solid defensive technique in tricky conditions.
But he made only 16 off 108 balls before he was leg before wicket to Philander, who produced a ball that cut back after a succession of deliveries that left the batsman.
Mathews, who needed treatment after a rising delivery from Philander struck his right forearm early in his innings, made 39 off 69 deliveries before pushing at a ball from Rabada to be caught at third slip. — AFP
