Amla seems bereft of form but waging a tough mental battle to stay out there. Ten innings since a half century but just drove a nice four to move to 10 from 42.

104/2 with the enigma at the other end playing a lovely cover drive to reach a fluent 47

100 for Duminy too. A nice fluent one too. He'll face harder attacks but a ton is always a great feeling, no doubt.

Amla has conquered his form issues a little and is attacking now, on 58.

214/2. Sri Lanka running out of ideas.

Congrats to Amla. Superb comeback in his 100th test after a lean period. Well played.

South Africa are all over these SL batsmen at the moment. 55/2 but the bat is being consistently beaten by philander, rabada and this new chap Oliver who himself just dropped a difficult return catch

A well directed bouncer from rabada that mendis couldn't get on top of, and a loose drive outside off by de silva bring then tourists down to 70/4. South Africa with their tails up.

Matthews on 5 and chandimal yet to score. If these two don't dig in as their two best batsmen Sri Lanka could be looking at being forced to follow on

That was brutal!!!

Inside 3 days.
In fact, still 36 overs left on Day 3.

SL hopelessly outplayed in all 3 Tests.

This newcomer Olivier looks good.
Of course, he needs to be judged against stronger opposition but not at all a bad start by the debutant.

SL was really poor. Not that I expected the results to be different - but surprised they collapsed so badly!
