South Africa – Sri Lanka 2nd Test

Share Button

Anrich Nortje gutted Sri Lanka’s middle order after Wiaan Mulder set a top-order collapse in motion, as South Africa skittled the visitors for 157 and moved into a commanding position at the Wanderers. Nortje frequently hit speeds of above 145kph on a pitch with steepling bounce at times, unsettling several Sri Lanka batsmen with his bouncer, and backing them into positions where they did not trust their defence against him. Many fell playing attacking shots, and Nortje claimed 6 for 56 – the best figures of his fledgling career.
SCORES: Sri Lanka batted first and made 157 in their first innings. In Reply, South Africa were 148 for 1 at the end of first day’s play of 2nd Test between Sri Lanka and South Africa. Today is the 2nd Day’s play.
