Sri Lanka in South Africa Test Series - 1st Test

South Africa v Sri Lanka

South Africa won by an innings and 81 runs

Overs 0-50

4.5

Steyn to Sangakkara, no run, beaten first up by a Steyn pearler. The same delivery that has had Tharanga in all kinds of trouble. Sanga looks to cover the line and misses as it slips past the outside edge.

4.6

Steyn to Sangakkara, 1 run, Sanga is away, steering a length ball wide of gully.

Sri Lanka 12/1   KC Sangakkara 1* (2b)

5.1

Philander to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga's turn now. Horror start for Sri Lanka. Vernon did this a lot against Australia, getting the ball to rear up from a length, without seeming to put much effort into it. Did that hit one of those verdant patches? Sanga was committed to playing at it, and once it got big on him he was in big trouble. The outside edge lobs easily into second slip's hands.

KC Sangakkara c Kallis b Philander 1 (3m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 33.33

Sri Lanka 12/2   KC Sangakkara 1 (3b)
Overs 0-50
