Cricket BallSri-Lanka and South Africa battle each other in the 1st 5-Day Cricket Test at Galle International Stadium in Sri-Lanka from 16 to 20 July 2014. Play starts early for SA viewers, as Sri-Lanka is a few hours ahead of South Africa in the time zones, so it is daly from about 06:00 SA Time every day.

South Africa have just won the ODI Series by 2 – 1, their first ever in Sri-Lanka.

The score cards will be updated at regular intervals here on Rugby-Talk.

South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first.

South Africa started well on Day 1 and then slightly lost their way towards the end of Day 1. At Stumps on Day 1, South Africa were 268 / 5, after 91 overs. On Day 2 South Africa continued their strong form and declared with 9 wickets down on 455 / 9 after 166.2 overs, leaving Sri-Lanka to field 12 uncomfortable overs before the close of play on Day 2 and with Sri-Lanka ending on 30 / 0 (12 Overs).

On Day 3 Sri-Lanka was steadily losing wickets and after 60 Overs bowled in the Sri-Lankan 1st Innings they were 165 / 4 (60 Overs). At close of play on Day 3 they were reeling at 283 / 9 after 100 Overs.

On Day 4 the Sri-Lankans were all out for 292 after 104.5 Overs and South Africa in their 2nd Innings declared at 206 / 6 (50.2 Overs). The Sri-Lankan 2nd Innings is underway, a target of 370 set.

At Stumps, Day 4, Sri-Lanka was 110 / 1 (32 Overs), 260 runs needed to win the game. One now wonders whether the South Adrican captain, Hashim Amla, declared the South African 2nd Innings too early!

On Day 5 the South African bowling attack and specifically the pace attack, obliterated the Sri-Lankans.

South Africa won the Test comfortably, by 153 runs.

 

South Africa:

  • First Innings – 455 / 9 Declared (166.2 Overs)

  • Second Innings – 206 / 6 Declared (50.2 Overs)

Sri-Lanka:

  • First Innings – 292 (104.5 Overs)

  • Second Innings – 216 (71.3 Overs)

 

South Africa won by 153 runs

    Another 5 wicket haul, in that heat and on that pitch.
    Excellent bowling once again by him

    with this kind of spin there is no way we would want to chase 100 runs on day 5

    OK, so the follow-on has been avoided by Sri-Lanka, so that is out the window.

    Anyway, I have to go to Midrand… so chat later!

  • 107

    Tahir keeps wasting the flippen reviews

  • 108

    I understand we want to use the new ball with fresh bowlers… but we gave away too many easy runs in the last hour

  • 109

    4 overz left. Amla would not want us to bat one over tonight.

    Great ball from Duminy to get the wicket, he’s really getting some nice turn

    Did not watch any more play but it seems he and Tahir only made up numbers. Dale saves the day

  • 111

    110 @ superBul:
    Hi Super, yes, Dale was really outstanding. In that heat on a pitch not really conducive to pace, he stood out once again.

    Regarding Duminy and Tahir, yes, they didn’t really bag the wickets, but the amount of turn they produced surprised me, we are sort of used to our spinners not really getting spin.

    My one major gripe with Tahir is that he wasted both of our referrals. He gets overexcited and thinks every ball he bowls is worthy of a wicket

    Hello see SA declared on 206/6 leaving Sri Lanka 370 to get to win. Quite a positive bold declaration I think especially as just over 30 overs left today but have not followed closely so don’t know if or how much time could be lost to weather, bad light…

    Well done Proteas.

    Very good win.

    Amla 100% record as test captain :)

    Durban boytjie….

  • 129

    Very good win Proteas.
    Good for Hash to start with a win.

  • 130

    Well done Nama you called the win correctly, no need to worry as I was a bit at start of play, although it happened even sooner than you predicted Congratulations

  • 131

    Good win for the Proteas there by 153 runs. Very good bowling by man of the match Dale Steyn picking up 9 wickets in the match. See de Kock took 7 catches and made 1 stumping, added to his scores 51 and 36, so it looks like he is settling in quite well at the top level.

  • 132

    131 @ Bullscot:
    Missed one there it was actually 8 catches for de Kock in this test

  • 133

    @ Bullscot:
    Thanks.

    I thought we would need the new ball to finish them off but it was not needed in the end. Steyn is just such a champion. Barring injuries, he’ll end his career as the fast bowler with the most wickets in history. I have no doubt about that.

  • 134

    @ Nama:
    He’s already the bowler with the highest strike rate in history (at least 200 wickets taken).

    Faster and more economical than Shane Warne or Murali, or any of the other fast greats.

  • 135

    @ Stormersboy:
    He is just phenomenal, SB.

    A wicket every 42 balls that he bowls.
    100 wickets every 20 test matches averaging 5 wickets per test (only Murali is better).
    80 wickets on the sub continent – the most by any bowler from outside the sub continent, proving that he can bowl on any surface.

  • 136

    @ Nama:
    Yip. Plus he’s ours!

  • 137

  • 138

    Galle – Proteas bowler Dale Steyn has rated his match-winning performance in the Galle Test against Sri Lanka among his best…

    “I’ve played in some pretty tough conditions before, but this is right up there,” said Steyn after taking the man-of-the-match award.

    Like you’ve said SB, he is ours. Approve

  • 139

    In the meantime, England requires 319 runs to win against India at Lords. They’ve already lost one wicket. Going to be a cracker.

  • 140

    @ Nama:
    Ad by “ours” I mean he’s a Protea AND a Cape Cobra :D

  • 142

    I wonder how Englands best player Kevin Peterson must laugh at this circus.

    As India completed a 95-run victory 50 minutes before tea on the final day, it ended a run of more than three years without an overseas Test victory and left England befuddled and bereft as they contemplated a winless streak of 10 Tests and the continued failures of their senior players to contribute to a rapidly-changing landscape.

    England’s defeat, and the muddle-headed cricket they regularly played en route, will increase criticism of Alastair Cook’s captaincy despite repeated protestations from England’s hierarchy that he remained the man to lead them during a period of rapid change. As their innings ended to a farcical run-out, Cook and his coach Peter Moores, their dejection only half-hidden behind reflective sunglasses, were deep in conversation on the balcony.

  • 143

    @ superBul:

    Yeah. I wouldn’t like to be in Alistair Cook’s shoes right now. England will need to win the next 3 tests or win 2 and draw one. That’s a massive ask the way they’ve been playing recently. Can’t see them doing it. Particularly the way the Indians are playing.
    And it is recent England captains Hussain and Vaughan who have joined the chorus calling for Cook’s head. He’s in a bad space at the moment.

  • 144

    @ superBul:
    @ IAAS:
    What do they care, they are already in the hallowed cabal with India and Australia.
    Results don’t mean much if you are in bed with the right partners

  • 145

    @ nortierd:
    Imagine Lords without spectators

  • 146

    @ superBul:
    Win or lose, Lords will always be full, if just for the tradition and “bucket list” must watch venue :lol:

  • 147

    @ nortierd:
    Nortie, yes maybe .
    But their is so much top sport events nowadays if you dont “watch your wickets” you might wake up too late.

    Then again is winning once in a blue moon not more rewarding than winning every game

    Hahaha , i am lying now.
    If Wales pulled of that almost win against us the next 5o years of losing would not have mattered.
    Then again the New Zealanders are enjoying their 100% winning record just as much. Surely they are not tired of winning

  • 148

    @ superBul:
    “Then again the New Zealanders are enjoying their 100% winning record just as much. Surely they are not tired of winning”

    The All Blacks fear losing more than they get enjoyment out of winning.
    I’ve read a few AB player’s biographies, and the one thing that stands out, is that they can recall every loss, but the ones they won is sort of vague.

    That’s the legacy of the black jersey
