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
