    SA will play 5 ODI, 1 T20I and 2 Tests against SL. The first test is set to begin today.

    Excited to see Steyn back in the team and I hope he performs well.

    Srilanka won toss bats first more rains in forcast later on
    Steyn/rabada/Philly/Shamsi and Maharaj formidable southafricann attack

    Srilanka minus chandimal (out of series ) probably first team in history of cricket who play test without Coach ( suspended)

    SL won toss bats first without their batsman skipper and Coach.Once again Bowler Skipper -- Lakmal lead Lanka.

    Good luck steyn as he is near milestone for SOA

    Both SL openers are Left handers.

    Karunaratne as solid as wall despite Srilanka lost 3 wickets in 4 ball including Mendis (24) Matthews and Roshan silva after Lunch

    SL 142 for 5
    Karunaratne 69 not out.
    Rabada 3 for 28.

    ( Karunaratne's recent stint (168 and 74*) with SLA, in un-official test,gained him test selection )

    Dale Steyn equals Shaun Pollocks most Test Wickets for South Africa - 421 - One more needed for the Phalaborwa Express :clap

    Congratulation Karunatane for brilliant century SL 214 for 8
    32 overs still need to be bowls but I think rains took too much
    Down time.

    Shamsi looks decent and effective test bowler first time.i wish rabada take last two wicket.

    I think he needs one more wicket to equal Pollock after he got his first wicket today. Before the start of match, he needed 2 wickets to equal the record.

    This is just sad. South Africa a top team getting crumbled like this. South Africa desperately needs some serious spin playing players. Would be interesting if they can save this one or not.

    Elgar better player vs Spin gone stumped.Amla gone in the 8th over.16 for 2

    28 for 4 but worst just happened as markram become Herath's
    422th test wicket, one more than DS (421)

    31 for 5
    36 for 6

    I always rate Dilruwan perera very high as top spinner on helpful track.i remember his debut test were he hits 95 vs best bowling of Pakistan
