Sri Lanka vs South Africa Test series Match 1 Day 3: LIVE Score, Match Commentary, Updates


This was Sri Lanka’s day as we saw a good game in that final session from the home team.

Sri Lanka had South Africa dismissed for 126 of the first two sessions, with Dilruwan Perera taking 4/46. The visiting batsmen were largely disappointing, apart from captain Faf du Plessis, who scored 64-runs in the partnership with Vernon Philander for the sixth wicket.

However, Sri Lanka weren’t done yet. Their batsmen managed to extend the lead to 272, despite Keshav Maharaj’s 3/37. They’ll hope to add a lot more to that on the third day.
