South Africa on course for victory after dismantling Sri Lanka

Quinton de Kock (101) completed his century as the Proteas posted a first-innings total of 392, before Vernon Philander (4-27) and Kagiso Rabada (4-37) took four wickets apiece to dismiss Sri Lanka in just 43 overs.

Despite their position of strength, South Africa opted against the follow-on and added a further 35 runs without loss before the end of the day.

Holding a 1-0 advantage in the three-match series, South Africa now appear certain to take an unassailable lead.
