Sri Lanka loses last 6 wickets in 35 runs before the opening round ends a comfortable victory
South Africa 302 (Elgar 127, van der Dussen 67, V Fernando 5-101) and 67 for 0 (Markram 36 *) beats Sri Lanka 157 (Perera 60, Nortje 6-56) and 211 (Karunaratne 103, Ngidi 4-44)
Even if Sri Lanka gained momentum on the second day, it wasted within the first 90 minutes of the third day, and South Africa’s Quick hunted relentlessly, losing 35 runs of the last six wickets.Very easily, there was a joy Dimus Carnaratone It was the first 100 in South Africa, but it soon fell into despair.
Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Luthho Sipamla each produced menacing spells to keep Sri Lanka from exceeding 62 in the morning session, with only 67 in South Africa. They were hurt towards the target with 13 overs on both sides of the lunch, all 10 wickets intact, sealing the 2-0 series victory.
There was a mild hope that Sri Lanka would set a tricky goal as it started crediting after an effort the afternoon before. In particular, Carna Ratone was definitely visible early on. He started in 1991, has entered the first century outside Sri Lanka since 2017, and has hit four times in a row for the third time of the day to enter the tenth century as a whole.
However, he was occasionally plagued by the bounces that Norche was causing rapidly. This extra bounce caused his fall at 103. The batter tried to hit it into the leg side, and the ball sailed from the top to the hand of the square leg.
Overnight partner Nilsoshan Dikwella was much less secure during the innings and played in the next match. Ngidi’s ball swelled from the front edge and tried to move his foot. He was out for 36 years, but the rest of the ticket gates went on quickly. Dasun Shanka spooned Wiaan Mulder in the middle. Wanindu Hasalanga made a surprisingly terrible wave against Sipamura and bowled. Then in his next over, Simamla claimed two wickets left in the space of three balls.
Ngidi finished 4 to 44 and was excellent in the third session on the second day. Sipamla chose three and continued the habit of clearing the bottom of the series. However, it was the main ticket gates of Carnaratne in Norche that shook the game in favor of South Africa.
After that, Dean Elgar and Aiden Markram confidently put South Africa on track with a five-over pre-lunch. Mark Lamb, who made up the majority of the strike, had one horror when he edged Vishwa Fernando low towards Slip Cordon. Kusal Mendis jumped in to make something that looked like a good catch at first, but replays showed that he could have touched the ball for a short time. The third referee did not rule it out in the end.
After the break, the pair enjoyed cruising towards their goal. Elgar’s batting was particularly good, not 27-31. Mark Lam finished undefeated 53-36.
Sri Lanka may get very mild encouragement from the fact that it made South Africa two bats for the first time in three games at the Wanderers, and the fact that two 211 were the best totals at the venue. However, the overall mood of the tour is one of the frustrations that many of their best players were injured and can be scraped as hard as they had on previous domestic test tours. I’m disappointed that I didn’t.
