Sri Lanka haven’t had the best of days on Day 3 as South Africa have dominated them from start to finish. Vernon Philander’s fifer was followed up by an exquisite 100 from Stephen Cook. Cook’s 100 run partnership with Dean Elgar followed by another one with Hashim Amla and the 74-run-stand between Faf du Plessis and Quinton de Kock has fuelled South Africa to a 432-run-lead over Sri Lanka.

We will have to wait and watch if they will declare overnight or keep batting on Day 4.
