An unbeaten century by Dimuth Karunaratne neutralised the South African hazard on the launching day of the Test series in Galle, following the visiting assault burrowed their way throughout Sri Lanka’s middle order. Playing his 50th Test, Karunaratne was the only Sri Lankan batsman to score greater than 26 runs and showcased in five ventures of over 40 – the final stand of 63 using Lakshan Sandakan – to make sure that although Sri Lanka lost six wickets to 61 at a stage, they stopped the afternoon at top.
Kagiso Rabada appeared as the spearhead of this Southern African bunch, with 4 to 50 on a face which provided scant aid. He also outbowled both his seniors – Vernon Philander, who just delivered eight overs, and Dale Steyn, who shot one step nearer to breaking Shaun Pollock’s album as South Africa’s top Test wicket-taker. Two remain. Tabraiz Shamsi, the left-arm wristspinner that had been comprised alongside Keshav Maharaj, was another threat, which merely suggests it’s going to end up harder for batting as the game progresses.
That puts more worth about the runs Sri Lanka’s lower purchase supplied. Their two pairings runs to push on their complete. In 176 for 8, even 200 appeared remote, and South Africa will rue their inability to finish the tail off, particularly since they had an early opportunity to achieve that.
