Sri Lanka not only have batting issues, they have bowling issues as well. South Africa need to grab opportunities like this where they know opposition is hurt and just pounce on them, which is what India did in their 3 year No 1 period. They seized every home opportunities and made full use of it.

For Sri Lanka ODI series is OK, where they have an outside chance but for Test I dont see them winning even one session of a 3 test series

Yesterday was totally rained out. There was heavy rain in the morning and benoni drains very badly. Any other ground but benoni and boland bank park and they would gotten some play.

Not a good starts for sri lanka today.

SA inv 193/2. Reeza Hendriks got 66 and Dean Elgar 78. Stian van Zyl and Rille Rossouw at the crease on 29 and 15. Going at 4.16 per over. Fernando and Mendis with the wickets.

Sri Lanka did not get a start they needed as their Fast Bowler, Nuwan Pradeep was injured in the fourth over of his spell. He left with hamstring and is in doubt for first test.

Sri Lanka now only have 2 quickies that to in Matthews and Fernando

which is what India did in their 3 year No 1 period.

19 months. :)

----------

They seized every home opportunities and made full use of it.

Also, I wouldn't readily call a 1-0 "home" win against NZL over 3 tests as "siezing every home opportunity and making full use of it." That series is what marked the beginning of the end regarding India's #1 status.

----------

As for this tour, I don't see SL winning a test match, that's a certainty. Maybe a run for their (SA's) money in the ODIs, which again should be SA's to lose. 2-0/3-0 to SA in the tests and 3-2/4-1 to SA in the ODIs.

There you go. All over for Lanka then. They easily boast the weakest bowling attack among the top 8 test nations ATM .

Pradeep isn't exactly a huge loss. He's only played one test, returning figures of 0/110 off 28 overs against Pakistan.

Nuwan Pradeep Isn't a huge lost,
But we did Needed a much more good bowling attack.
Nuwan Kulasekara,Shaminda Eranga,Chaminda Vaas are the huge losses.
Why did the hell Vass retired,
He can still bowl, Ajantha Mendis is good.
But they need to get some much powerful Bowling attack,
Making the Debut of,
Sajeewa Weerokoon
Sachithra Senanayaka
and the other good spinners will do,

Well, Sri Lanka have bowled them for 357 and are 181 for 1 currently in 35 overs. Dilshan scoring good runs, he needed those. Is the pitch flat or they are really batting well :)

Well, I fell bad of jinxing Sri Lanka. They were going well on 197/1 before Jayawardhane was out and then Paranavirthana decided to retire out on 100. Good innings though from him. Bad light ruining the fun as Sri Lanka were looking to play positive cricket and that is what I expect from them

Dilshan is playing good,
Well, that's a rare news,
Everybody knows how to get him out,
He can't play Straight Drive or Play a normal Defensive Shot for a Straight Bowl.
