Arrow **Sri Lanka's Tour of South Africa|3 Tests, 3 T20Is, & 5 ODIs|Dec 26th 2016 - Feb 10th 2017**

South Africa, buoyed after their series triumph in Australia, are now under leadership from the man who led them to that: Faf du Plessis.

Judging from his captaincy tactics, he is by far one of the most extreme in decision making...result-oriented, etc.

Sri Lanka will switch back to their regular skipper, Angelo Mathews taking over from Rangana Herath and Upul Tharanga.

They have an uncapped player in their squad, Vikum Sanjaya.

Will be looking forward to the competition between Kagiso and Kusal...2 players that I very much admire in the cricketing world. Although Kusal's average is not world class at the moment, I am hopeful that it will rise after this series...in both Tests and ODIs.

First day of the series...

SA are batting first...currently on 195/3

JP Duminy continuing his good form with another fifty, with him at the crease is captain Faf

Low-scoring match so far...

SL, replying to SA's 1st innings total of 286, are 181 for the loss of 7 wickets...their top order was rattled by the fast men of SA...Philander accounting for 3 of those wicket...Kyle Abbott with 2, and Maharaj and Kagiso with 1 apiece.

Disappointed to see Kusal Mendis out for a duck. I hope he comes back stronger in the second innings.

A good match building at Port Elizabeth

Soumya needs to take notes from Mathews. Taskin needs to take notes from Lakmal. Litton needs to study Cook's discipline to see how far he can go in intl cricket as well, with just limited skills and lots of discipline - both are beasts in domestic circuit,Cook much more so of course.

Watching SL chase down 488.

Mathews and Mendis at the crease....the technique of Mendis is solid.

They need another 350.

Mendis with the sweep against Maharaj, earned him a boundary.

The partnership is going at a good rate between Mathews and Mendis....getting the boundaries and rotating the strike.

49 off 51balls.

This is excellent by these two....good rotation of the strike, and hitting the odd ball for a boundary.

Mathews 25 (29)
Mendis 42 (65)

Kagiso going at more than 4 an over after 14 overs.

He looked tired.

Mendis on 47*

A very good delivery to dismiss Kusal

With a field set for the hook shot, Rabada went around the wicket and bowled a short delivery that was vicious, expecting Kusal to fall for the trap, the batsman saw that and went to play cheeky shot that would have gone over 2nd slip's head for a boundary...but he was undone by the pace of Kagiso, and got a faint nick that went to the jubilant Quinton de Kock.

Brilliant cricket I witnessed this morning...excellent captaincy.

One thing about Dean Elgar's centuries: they way he gets to them is not pretty, but he get its done.

His sixth century this one was...

He reminds me of Graham Thorpe

Probably end of the road for him.
But test cricket is his bread and butter.

Sri Lanka struggle away from home.
Only sub con side to be decent in S Africa is India.
These players are young maybe next time.
