  • wicket: OUT! Caught. NOT OUT changed by umpire to OUT after REFERRAL. Duanne Olivier to Lahiru Kumara. Seaming away short, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to short leg, by Cook. <br><br> Up in the air and taken by short leg. Massive appeal, the Proteas are convinced this is out but the umpire disagrees. Faf fancies a review. On first replay it seems like it just came off the shoulder of Kumara, but on second look there is a little flick of the glove beforehand. So this will be overturned, good review by South Africa. They move one wicket from finishing things off.
  • 41.1 – Duanne Olivier to Lahiru Kumara. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to third man, by Duminy. <br><br> Parnell gets his third wicket to end this partnership and take him to career best bowling figures. He owes a lot of that to Duminy for another super catch. Tharanga was looking to continue the boundary-fest but got a thick top edge on his pull shot. Duminy turned and sprinted from gully towards third man, and then put in a full length dive to take the ball two-handed over his shoulder. Incredible catch.
  • 40.5 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Parnell.
  • 40.4 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Duminy.
  • 40.3 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 40.2 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Short, down leg side on the back foot hooking, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 40.1 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Short, to leg on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. <br><br> This is a really entertaining knock from Lakmal. Probably for the first time in the series, Faf has a bit of thinking to do in the field. This was a nailed pull shot, well in front of square.
  • 39.6 – Duanne Olivier to Upul Tharanga. Seaming away back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 39.5 – FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Upul Tharanga. Seaming away half volley, to leg on the front foot flick, leading edge in the air uncontrolled past deep backward point for 4 runs. <br><br> Runs really flowing at the Wanderers. Tharanga was looking to go legside but a leading edge sends the ball flying through point. A salmon-like diving Bavuma can’t quite pluck it from the air so the ball races to the fence.
  • 39.4 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control to long off for 3 runs, fielded by Philander. <br><br> That is a new career best for Lakmal. A swashbuckling innings.
  • 39.3 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to cover for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 39.2 – Duanne Olivier to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, down leg side on the front foot working, to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Parnell.
  • 39.1 – Duanne Olivier to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Olivier.
  • 38.6 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed back to bowler for no runs, dropped catch by Parnell. <br><br> Wacked back at Parnell, he gets a hand to it but can’t hold the catch. Probably as tough as they come, barely any time to react. It is technically a chance but really he’s saved four runs.
  • 38.5 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Seaming away back of a length, middle stump on the back foot pushing, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 38.4 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, to mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Rabada.
  • 38.3 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 38.2 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. <br><br> Oh yes, that is right out of the screws. Driven sumptuously through extra cover. This partnership just beginning to frustrate du Plessis.
  • 38.1 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Short, outside off stump swayed away, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 37.6 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 37.5 – FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Half volley, outside off stump on the back foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep extra cover for 4 runs. <br><br> Boom, spanked through extra cover. It was pitched up but he managed to flay it away off the back foot, Lara-esque but right-handed.
  • 37.4 – FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot hooking, top edge in the air uncontrolled past fine leg for 4 runs. <br><br> Lakmal on the hook shot now, not where he intended but he’ll get four more for his top edge. It was a bit of a dirty swipe really but they all count.
  • 37.3 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to point for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 37.2 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, to extra cover for no runs, shy attempt by Philander, fielded by Parnell.
  • 37.1 – Duanne Olivier to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Philander.
  • 36.6 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Cook.
  • 36.5 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, mis-timed to point for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 36.4 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. <br><br> Lakmal is clearly intent on going down swinging at the Wanderers. He takes on this bouncer and gets enough willow on leather to get it to the mid wicket rope.
  • 36.3 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, to point for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 36.2 – Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 36.1 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Bavuma.
  • 35.6 – Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump backing away cutting, top edge in the air uncontrolled to third man for 2 runs, fielded by Duminy.
  • 35.5 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Length ball, off stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep square leg for 4 runs. <br><br> Shot, Lakmal certainly likes to take on the bowlers. This is whipped off his pads Pietersen-style with sublime timing.
  • 35.4 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> You’ve got to feel for the lower order here, coming into bat against fired up bowlers on a helpful surface. Lakmal thrusts his bat in front of his face in self preservation, the ball comes off the shoulder and sails over the slips for four.
  • 35.3 – Kagiso Rabada to Suranga Lakmal. Back of a length, outside off stump no foot movement pushing, mis-timed to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 35.2 – Kagiso Rabada to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Bavuma.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Rangana Herath. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved in the air uncontrolled to gully, by Bavuma. <br><br> The carnage continues in Johannesburg, Parnell strikes. This was quick and at the throat of Herath as it jumped viciously from short of a length. He could only punch it away towards gully where Bavuma takes the easiest of catches. Three wickets to go for South Africa.
  • 34.5 – Wayne Parnell to Rangana Herath. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 34.2 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, inside edge past fine leg for 4 runs. <br><br> Too straight from Parnell, easy pickings for Tharanga.
  • 34.1 – Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Parnell.
  • 33.6 – Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Yorker, off stump on the front foot working, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Philander.
  • 33.5 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. <br><br> Scythed away by Herath, he always looks to score no matter the situation.
  • 33.4 – Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, Gloved to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 33.3 – Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Half volley, wide outside off stump on the front foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • 33.1 – Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Short, outside off stump ducked, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 32.6 – JP Duminy to Upul Tharanga. Quicker ball half volley, middle stump on the front foot defending, back to bowler for no runs, fielded by Duminy. <br><br> Tea time at the Wanderers. Another session of extraodinary bowling from South Africa, and a moment of extraordinary fielding to go with it. All four of their quicks tasted success this afternoon, battering their way through the Sri Lankan top order. Faf du Plessis took one of the best slip catches you will ever see in the midst of it all. With the tourists still 171 behind, it is highly likely the hosts will wrap up the series whitewash this evening.
  • 32.5 – JP Duminy to Upul Tharanga. Off break length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.
  • 32.4 – JP Duminy to Upul Tharanga. Off break half volley, off stump on the front foot defending, to cover for no runs, fielded by du Plessis.

  • 31.4 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot Steer, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. <br><br> A hint of width allows Tharanga to guide this to the third man rope. Once again he finds himself batting with the tail in a difficult situation.
  • 31.3 – Kagiso Rabada to Upul Tharanga. Back of a length, down leg side on the back foot glancing, hit pad to leg gully for no runs, fielded by Cook.

  • 30.4 – APPEAL! Vernon Philander to Upul Tharanga. In-swinging length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, hit pad to gully for no runs, fielded by Bavuma, appeal made for L.B.W. <br><br> Strangled appeal but too much swing from Philander would’ve taken it past leg.

  • 30.2 – Vernon Philander to Rangana Herath. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Cook.

  • 29.6 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep extra cover for 4 runs. <br><br> Tharanga off the mark in style, hammering a drive with a lovely straight bat.
  • 29.5 – Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Short, outside off stump on the back foot pulling, Gloved to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Parnell.
  • 29.4 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Rangana Herath. Seaming away length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Over the top, very close. Du Plessis can’t quite pull off a repeat of his earlier heroics, the ball just out of reach this time as it flew off Herath’s outside edge.
  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, missed. <br><br> Timber, Rabada bang on target. He’s around the wicket and brings this back through the gate of Karunaratne’s flat-footed drive, the ball striking the top of middle stump. This match is quickly moving towards completion.
  • 29.2 – Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away bouncer, outside off stump ducked, to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 29.1 – Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away short, off stump on the back foot glancing, Play and Miss (Leg Side) to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Amla. <br><br> It was only a matter of time before Philander bagged himself a wicket. He must’ve passed the edge at least 20 times this innings, on this occasion the ball kisses it and is swallowed by Amla at first slip. Again the batsman was forced to play, not a whole lot he could do. South Africa surge towards a victory within three days.
  • 28.5 – Vernon Philander to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, off stump on the back foot pushing, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Rabada. <br><br> A half century for Karunaratne, well played. He gets some warm applause from the Sri Lankan dressing room and the Johannesburg crowd.
  • 28.4 – Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Out-swinging length ball, off stump down the track pushing, inside edge to fine leg for 1 run, fielded by Olivier.
  • 28.3 – FOUR! Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. <br><br> And again, almost a carbon copy of the previous stroke. Chandimal looking in good touch.
  • 28.2 – FOUR! Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Out-swinging half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. <br><br> Gorgeous stroke to take Sri Lanka past 100. Chandimal with a little shimmy before putting the full face through the ball, thumping it to long off.
  • 28.1 – Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, inside edge to mid wicket for no runs, fielded by Cook.

  • 27.4 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, well timed past deep cover for 4 runs. <br><br> Short and wide, just where he likes it. Karunaratne slaps a cut shot in front of square to take him one run short of a half century.
  • 27.3 – Kagiso Rabada to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to Angelo Mathews. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, top edge to slips, by du Plessis. <br><br> What a stunner, early contender for catch of the year from Faf du Plessis. He is mobbed by his team, they realise what a special moment this is. It was short and wide from Olivier, certainly not his best delivery, but some extra bounce found the top edge of the blade as Mathews looked to cut hard. The ball flew fast and high, seemingly destined for a boundary, but a leaping du Plessis had other ideas. He jumps high and sticks out his right hand, the ball nestling in it perfectly while both feet were in the air. Outstanding grab.

  • 22.5 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. <br><br> Another high quality stroke, straight out of the textbook for Test batting. Playing the ball under his head, a compact drive races to the rope.
  • 22.4 – Wayne Parnell to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming in length ball, middle stump on the front foot working, inside edge to short leg for no runs, fielded by Cook.
  • 22.3 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. <br><br> Short and wide, Karunaratne gets on top of it and places it into the gap at backward point. Super stroke.

  • 21.5 – FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Dimuth Karunaratne. Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. <br><br> Chunky drive from Karunaratne, the ball zips to the long off rope. I don’t think he was trying to hit it that straight but he’ll be happy with the result. The left-handed opener is looking a touch more comfortable out there now.

  • 20.5 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Dimuth Karunaratne. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, thick edge in the air under control past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Width on offer, Karunaratne’s eyes light up and he slashes hard. It doesn’t come out of the middle of the willow but it is safe enough over gully.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to Dhananjaya de Silva. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by du Plessis. <br><br> Edged and snaffled by the safe hands of du Plessis at second slip. The debutant strikes with a lovely delivery. Off stump line with a hint of away movement, de Silva has no choice but to play at it but he does so tentatively. A healthy edge flies low to the left of the skipper and he makes no mistake. The Wanderers roars in delight.

Back of a length, off stump on the back foot glancing, hit pad to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. <br><br> A polite enquiry from the Proteas as to whether there was some glove on this. A shake of the head from umpire Oxenford, it just clipped the thigh pad.

  • wicket: OUT! Bowled. Wayne Parnell to Kusal Mendis. In-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot cutting, bottom edge. <br><br> Chopped on, there’s the breakthrough. Parnell goes for a couple of boundaries and then gets his man. Mendis was looking loose and care free, in the end that brings his downfall. Parnell finding some swing back into the right-hander, cramping the cut shot and finding a little bottom edge that sends the ball into the off stump bail.
  • 12.4 – Wayne Parnell to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • 12.3 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Kusal Mendis. Seaming in back of a length, down leg side on the back foot Fended, Gloved past fine leg for 4 runs. <br><br> Nasty delivery into the ribcage. Mendis manages to get a little glove on it to divert it to the fine leg rope.

Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to third man for 1 run, dropped catch by Elgar, fielded by du Plessis. <br><br> Parnell comes into the attack and finds an outside edge first ball, it flies low and fast between second and third slip. Elgar dives but can’t cling on. Tough chance but he will be disappointed because he’s a great slip catcher. A life for Karunaratne.

Seaming in length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, inside edge in the air uncontrolled to silly mid on for no runs, fielded by Philander. <br><br> Mendis’ drive results in an inside edge onto pad, the ball loops into the legside but away from the fielders.

  • 10.6 – Vernon Philander to Kusal Mendis. Out-swinging length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep cover for 1 run, fielded by Rabada. <br><br> I like this intent from Mendis. He doesn’t find the middle of the bat on this occasion but the aggression is there as he scoops this over cover for a single.

  • 8.6 – Vernon Philander to Kusal Mendis. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the back foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock. <br><br> There’s been a real concerted effort post-lunch from Mendis to both play some shots and use the crease more to upset Philander’s line and length. He is also staying very legside of the ball. It’s an interesting approach and great to see the young man thinking about his game plan so much.

Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot, shoulders arms to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock. <br><br> Lunch time at the Wanderers. South Africa once again showing their utter dominance in that morning session, running through Sri Lanka’s middle and lower order seemingly with ease. With Vernon Philander having the ball on a string and Kagiso Rabada extracting vicious bounce, the tourists batting was understandably frail but disappointingly so. They were asked to follow-on, and already find themselves one wicket down. If this match was a boxing bout the referee may well have called it off long ago. Sri Lanka need to defy odds and logic to mount a comeback from here.

Ripsnorter first up from Rabada spits from back of a length to take Silva’s glove on the way through to de Kock, who just sticks out a glove. The ball sticks in the webbing and Silva is gone for a first ball duck. Not much the batsman could do about that, unplayable delivery. The Proteas are on the charge, they sense blood. This match could well be over today.
  • 0.6 – Vernon Philander to Dimuth Karunaratne. In-swinging back of a length, to leg on the back foot glancing, to fine leg for 2 runs, fielded by Rabada. <br><br> First runs of the match for Karunaratne, he gets off the pair.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught & Bowled. Wayne Parnell to Nuwan Pradeep. Back of a length, to leg no foot movement pushing, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled back to bowler, fielded by Parnell. <br><br> There we go, Parnell finishes the demolition job. Pradeep ungainly pushes one back to the bowler who completes an excellent take diving forward in his follow-through. The umpires just confirm with the TV umpire that it carried, and are satisfied with the result. So Sri Lanka have been destroyed by the Proteas, making just 131. Mendis was the top scorer with 41. The South African openers haven’t charged off the field so I suspect the follow-on has been enforced. No confirmation as of yet though.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to Upul Tharanga. Seaming away length ball, middle stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Elgar. <br><br> They are dropping like flies now, South Africa are absolutely ruthless. Olivier doubles his wicket tally, going across the left-hander with the angle and a little bit of nibble. Tharanga pushes at it with hard hands, presenting Elgar with a catch as simple as they come at third slip. Extra bounce meant it took the shoulder of the blade. The end is nigh now, du Plessis will surely be considering enforcing the follow-on.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Wayne Parnell to Suranga Lakmal. Half volley, off stump no foot movement driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to short extra cover, by Rabada. <br><br> Gone, as simple as pie. I think Lakmal may have had delusions of grandeur after that previous boundary. This is pitched up and he drives with little footwork or timing, scooping a simple catch to Rabada close in on the offside. Parnell picks up his first wicket on return to Test cricket.

  • 41.2 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past long off for 4 runs. <br><br> Glorious drive, Tharanga at his elegant best. This was by no means a half volley but he is still able to get in a big stride and put the full face of the bat through the ball.
  • 41.1 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Upul Tharanga. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep backward point for 4 runs. <br><br> Overpitched by Parnell and Tharanga climbs in, slashing hard backward of point.

Half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. <br><br> Tharanga expanding his game now that he is left to bat with the tail. This is a free swing of the arms, gracefully sending the ball over the covers for four.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Duanne Olivier to Rangana Herath. Short, down leg side on the back foot pulling, top edge in the air uncontrolled to backward square leg, by Cook. <br><br> First Test wicket for Duanne Olivier. What a moment for the young man, he’ll have been thinking about his dropped catch yesterday but all will be forgotten now. This is short and fast, cramping Herath for room. Herath tends to be a compulsive puller and hooker, as he shows here looking to take it on. A top edge loops behind square and is safely pouched by Cook. Olivier is mobbed by his teammates, a moment he’ll never forget. That takes us to drinks after a perfect first hour for South Africa. Sri Lanka in the mire.

Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot Steer, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Herath is always exciting to watch when he has the bat in hand. He steers this with an open face, the ball coming off the outer half of the willow and running away to the rope. That will encourage Parnell though, not the most convincing stroke.

  • 37.4 – APPEAL! Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Vernon Philander to Upul Tharanga. In-swinging length ball, to leg on the front foot working, hit pad for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. <br><br> Huge shout but that was just doing too much I think. Lavish swing back into the left-hander wraps Tharanga on the pad, Faf likes it though he wants to review. Ball tracking confirms this was missing the leg stump comfortably, so it confirms the good decision from the umpire. South Africa lose their second review.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. <br><br> What a sensational catch, Quinton de Kock has pulled off a screamer. Fantastic line and length from Rabada, drawing another edge from Mathews that is heading towards first slip. De Kock senses that it isn’t going to carry to Amla so dives across one-handed and gets his right mit on it. It almost pops out but he manages to keep hold of it much to the delight of the bowler. All of that done with his weaker hand as well, amazing athleticism. Sri Lanka are reeling now, just 100 on the board and they don’t have a whole lot left in the shed.

  • 35.4 – APPEAL! OUT changed by umpire to NOT OUT after REFERRAL. Vernon Philander to Angelo Mathews. Seaming in back of a length, off stump on the back foot working, inside edge for no runs, appeal made for L.B.W. <br><br> Big appeal and up goes the finger, Philander strikes again. That looked to be plumb LBW. He has been going away from the right-hander and now bring this one back in. Mathews asks for a review, he doesn’t seem too confident though. Well, actually Mathews might be in luck here, it seems he got the tiniest of inside edges on the ball. Even the umpire is astounded. So this will be not out, excellent review for Sri Lanka, they couldn’t afford to lose their skipper.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Dinesh Chandimal. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. <br><br> Got him, any early strike for Philander. This is his bread and butter, a tight off stump line with some away movement in the air and off the pitch. The batsman unsure whether to play or leave and in the end flirting with it and nicking off. Philander is just irresistible in these conditions.
  • 30.6 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Length ball, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. <br><br> Much better from Mathews, waiting for Rabada to straighten his line and then flicking it away with a wristy flourish.

  • 30.4 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Angelo Mathews. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Mathews has a tentative push well away from his body, no need to play at these deliveries.

Back of a length, to leg on the back foot defending, to mid on for no runs, fielded by Olivier. <br><br> The umpires have decided the light has deteriorated to the point where play cannot continue. It is looking pretty gloomy at The Wanderers so understandable. That will be a relief for Mathews and Chandimal, some respite from the barrage of the four South African quicks. Hopefully we can get some more play tonight. <br><br> Conditions are yet to improve so play has been called off for the day. A familiar story for the Sri Lankan batsman, unable to resist some probing bowling from Vernon Philander and raw pace from Kagiso Rabada. They find themselves with a long way to go just to avoid the follow-on, which South Africa might be more keen to enforce in this game with weather around. The tourists were excellent this morning, Nuwan Pradeep in particular bowling an outstanding spell, but it says a lot of the Proteas dominance on the opening day that they are still well ahead in this game. Join us tomorrow to see if the visitors can graft their way to a decent first innings total. <br><br> Good morning and welcome to coverage of Day Three of the Third Test between South Africa and Sri Lanka in Johannesburg. The action yesterday from The Wanderers was a microcosm of the series as a whole. The tourists bowling attack toiled away and produced some superb spells but ultimately allowed the Proteas to an above par total, and then their top order never looked comfortable against the likes of Vernon Philander and Kagiso Rabada. It will largely be up to captain Angelo Mathews and his deputy Dinesh Chandimal to rescue this innings and drag Sri Lanka to something respectable. That will not be easy on a wicket offering pace, bounce, swing and seam, leaving them staring down the barrel of a whitewash.

This is really tough for the tourists, Philander is landing the ball on a sixpence and moving it both ways. He is beating the bat with ease multiple times an over. The light continues to deteriorate though, so Mathews will realise he might not have long left to survive tonight.

Seaming away back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. <br><br> There’s an edge, Rabada strikes. Perfect start to the session for South Africa. It was back of a length and Silva just pushed at it slightly, a disappointing shot from the opener. A feather of an edge is gathered by de Kock and thrown up in celebration. Rabada threatened before the break and now he gets rewarded.

Another good session for Sri Lanka, backing up their excellent work this morning. They polished off the South African innings and have made a solid start with the bat. Vernon Philander got Dimuth Karunaratne for a four ball duck, but since then Kaushal Silva and Kusal Mendis have dug in to resist the Proteas. There were a few heart-in-mouth moments but they have deserved a little luck. A long evening session ahead, where the hard work will have to continue for them to drag themselves back into this match.

  • 10.3 – FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Kusal Mendis. Short, outside off stump on the back foot Fended, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> In the gap again, between the gully and slips.

Short, off stump on the back foot pulling, well timed in the air under control over fine leg for 6 runs. <br><br> What a stroke, Mendis latches onto a short one and just helps it on its way over fine leg. He had one leg in the air as he played the shot, calypso-style.

  • 7.1 – Wayne Parnell to Kaushal Silva. Back of a length, to leg on the back foot dropped, to silly point for 1 run, shy attempt by Parnell. <br><br> This is a suicidal single, almost a catastrophe for the tourists. Silva sells Mendis down the river here, but Parnell misses with his kick aimed at the stumps.

In-swinging half volley, down leg side on the front foot flick, well timed past fine leg for 4 runs. <br><br> Philander looking for the in-swinger but drifts too straight, allowing Mendis to wristily flick to fine leg. Not often you get bad balls from Philander so Mendis does well to capitalise.

  • 5.4 – FOUR! Wayne Parnell to Kusal Mendis. Seaming away back of a length, down leg side on the back foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Mendis off the mark but it was a moral victory for Parnell. Squaring him up and finding the leading edge, the ball flies at head height between gully and third slip. Du Plessis brings a man in to fill that gap now, but the horse may well have already bolted.

  • 4.2 – FOUR! Vernon Philander to Kaushal Silva. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, thick edge in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. <br><br> Silva drawn into a loose shot because Philander is moving the ball both ways. Luckily for Sri Lanka this flies safely enough over gully, but that shot will definitely encourage the bowler.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Vernon Philander to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by de Kock. <br><br> No doubt this time, there is a definite edge on that. Safely pouched by de Kock and Karunaratne is gone for a duck. Perfect line and length from Philander, forcing the batsman to play and zipping the ball away from him. A thin nick through and the Proteas are jubilant, as is The Wanderers crowd.

Seaming away back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, missed to wicketkeeper for no runs, by de Kock, appeal made for Caught. <br><br> Is that an edge? The South Africans are convinced but the umpire is unmoved. An instant review from du Plessis, his team are already celebrating with high fives. Replays show no contact though, it’s an excellent decision from the umpire.
  • 0.1 – NEW BALL. Vernon Philander to Dimuth Karunaratne. Seaming away back of a length, off stump on the back foot, Left to wicketkeeper for no runs, fielded by de Kock.
  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Out-swinging back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, thick edge in the air uncontrolled to third man, by de Silva. <br><br> There we go, the innings comes to an end with de Kock falling in a similar vein to Parnell. It was wide and there to be hit, the batsman obliged but could only slash it to de Silva at third man. Sri Lanka will be mightily pleased with their work so far today but the Duminy and Amla partnership yesterday means the Proteas are still in control. De Kock was the next highest scorer with 34, proof that this is a difficult wicket to start on. Philander, Rabada and company will hope to get on a roll with the ball this afternoon with tough conditions for batting.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Lahiru Kumara to Wayne Parnell. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, mis-timed in the air uncontrolled to deep backward point, by Tharanga. <br><br> Slapped to the man in the deep, what a way to go. This was wide and Parnell threw the kitchen sink at it, and ended up scooping it straight to the fielder on the rope. The thin Highveld air helped that carry to the deep, the fielder almost made a mess of it but clung on. Kumara gets rewarded for his hard toil. Not the greatest shot from Parnell but understandable given the match situation.

  • 121.5 – Nuwan Pradeep to Wayne Parnell. Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot driving, outside edge to third man for 3 runs, dropped catch by Karunaratne, fielded by de Silva. <br><br> Edged and put down, inexplicably there is only one slip in place and Karunaratne has to dive but can only palm it away. Would’ve been a simple catch for second slip if there was one in place. Parnell survives and runs three to take him to a career best.

Back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot defending, to short extra cover for no runs, fielded by Silva. <br><br> Time for lunch in Johannesburg. What a session we have had, the game moving along at a rate of knots. It was slow going for the first hour, the Sri Lankan bowlers beating the bat with what seemed like every other delivery. Eventually they started to find the edge and take their catches, Nuwan Pradeep the main destroyer taking four wickets in a spell, including centurion Hashim Amla. South Africa are still in a strong position due to their hard work yesterday and their bowlers will surely be salivating thinking about getting to bowl in these conditions, with the ball doing all sorts.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Vernon Philander. Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, Gloved to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal. <br><br> This time Philander is gone, no doubts about this one. Pradeep is bowling the spell of his life here, this is another beaut, a really unplayable delivery. It jags off the wicket and takes off to tickle Philander’s glove through to Chandimal who takes it easily.

In-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot Fended, Gloved to wicketkeeper for no runs, by Chandimal, appeal made for Caught. <br><br> Gloved down the legside and up goes the deadly digit from the umpire. An instant review from Philander though, so this will go to the third umpire. Replays show it has hit the glove but it wasn’t holding the bat at the time, so an excellent review by Philander who is clearly aware of the law. The decision is overturned.

  • 108.3 – FOUR! Lahiru Kumara to Quinton de Kock. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. <br><br> Too straight and de Kock whips it away with sumptuous timing through the legside.

Out-swinging back of a length, off stump on the back foot defending, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal. <br><br> Gone, Pradeep gets another and it’s the big fish of Amla. Another jaffa from Pradeep forcing the batsman to play and taking the edge. It’s going towards first slip but wasn’t going to carry to the man, so Chandimal dives across and sticks out a glove. The ball sticks in his right mit, excellent catch from the keeper. The tourists are having a great spell after drinks.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Temba Bavuma. Out-swinging half volley, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Silva. <br><br> And another, Pradeep is on fire and Sri Lanka are exuberant now. More movement for the bowler draws Bavuma into pushing away from his body with hard hands, something that can only end badly for the batsman. An edge flies quick and high to third slip, Silva taking a super grab above head height. Bavuma’s struggles continue, he has had a lean series.

  • wicket: OUT! Caught. Nuwan Pradeep to Faf du Plessis. Seaming away back of a length, off stump on the back foot pushing, outside edge to slips, by Mendis. <br><br> Got him, Mendis makes amends at second slip. That was an unplayable delivery from Pradeep, moving prodigiously off the seam to square up du Plessis. The outside edge flies to Mendis, who gobbles it up. That was a tougher catch than the one he dropped earlier, but that will be forgotten now as the tourists celebrate. Absolute ripper from Pradeep.

  • 100.6 – Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot dropped, to point for 5 runs, shy attempt by Kumara, overthrow by Kumara. <br><br> Quick single, risky. Kumara charging in from point only has one stump to aim at but can’t strike the target. Amla would’ve been comfortably gone, but instead the ball scurries away for overthrows.

  • 100.4 – Suranga Lakmal to Faf du Plessis. In-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, hit body to short extra cover for no runs. <br><br> Ouch, du Plessis is down on his haunches. This was a nasty delivery from Lakmal, zipping in and boucing up to strike the South African skipper in the stomach. He’s a determined character though, he’ll be fine in a moment. Just a little winded perhaps.

Beautiful bowling from Lakmal, forcing du Plessis to play and doing enough to take the edge, but Mendis spills it in the cordon. It wasn’t a difficult one, it seemed like he had it in both hands but the ball broke free. Lakmal looks devastated, he’s deserved a wicket this morning. Sri Lanka really not helping themselves in the field.

Out-swinging length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Chandimal. <br><br> Edged and taken, finally Sri Lanka find the outside edge. Mathews and Lakmal must have beaten the bat at least a dozen times this morning, now the ball just kisses the edge. It wasn’t picked up by the umpire initially but Mathews is aware and reviews the not out decision. Replays show a thin nick so the decision is overturned. Olivier’s first foray into Test batting comes to an end, but he did his job last night.

Today will be remembered for the outstanding performances of two men, JP Duminy and Hashim Amla. They came together mid-way through the morning session after Sri Lanka removed the openers in quick succession. Duminy was quickly into his stride, peppering the boundary rope with a series of elegant drives. That allowed Amla more time to settle, and after being dropped just before lunch, he looked back to his graceful best. The Johannesburg crowd was treated to some vintage shots from the bearded batsman, rediscovering his mojo on the way to an unbeaten century in his 100th Test. The partnership ended on an epic 292 late in the day, but that still left the Proteas in complete control. With Amla still at the crease, you suspect there is more punishment to come for the tourists in the field tomorrow.

Seaming away length ball, off stump on the front foot defending, outside edge to slips, by Mendis. <br><br> Edged and gobbled up at slip, Duminy falls late in the day. A little lapse in concentration perhaps as he prodded at the ball going across him, well taken by a diving Mendis at second slip. Some late respite for the tourists after a long day of toil. Duminy takes the applause of the crowd on his way off, it was a fantastic knock from the left-hander.

  • wicket: OUT! L.B.W. Verified by umpire after REFERRAL. Angelo Mathews to Stephen Cook. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, hit pad. <br><br> Big appeal and up goes the finger, that was as plumb as plumb can be. Mathews just angling this into the right-hander and Cook played all around it, hit on the front pad smack bang in front of all three. He decides to review but that seems optimistic. It was very close to being a front foot no-ball but Mathews just has something behind the line, so the decision will stand. An important breakthrough for the tourists brings Hashim Amla to the crease in his 100th Test.
