South Africa vs Sri Lanka

"The ball was swinging in the morning", he said.

Left-arm opening bowler Fernando took three for 49.

After numerous replays, television umpire Ian Gould decided Bavuma had narrowly failed to get his bat behind the crease. "Our pace bowlers are all a bit different so I'm sure one of them will figure out how to conquer the Sri Lankan batsmen", De Kock said.

It was a disastrous start for the Proteas, who found themselves one down with just three overs gone, as Dean Elgar nicked off off the bowling of Suranga Lakmal without scoring.

Sri Lanka head to South Africa on the back of two very bad performances in Australia in which they struggled badly with the bat after failing to deal with the fast tracks and pace bowling which saw them manage just 647 runs from four innings.

Temba Bavuma and captain Faf du Plessis rode out the early storm and gradually started to change the momentum in a 72-run partnership, which was ended in the last over before lunch when Du Plessis was caught down the leg-side by wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwella off Kasun Rajitha for 35.

Replays showed the ball had pitched in line and would have hit the stumps, which would have resulted in the original decision being overturned if a review had been allowed.

The lapse proved affordable, however, as Amla was caught at second slip off Lakmal for three before Fernando produced the ball of the day to bowl Markram for 11.

But recent reports about SuperSport's relationship with Cricket South Africa could explain why they chose to broadcast the bowling plans.

The resumption of play after lunch brought the fifth wicket, as Bavuma was removed in the most unfortunate fortune for a well-played 47 after a straight shot from his batting partner, Quinton de Kock ricocheted off bowler, Vishwa Fernando on to the stumps, with the non-striker short of his ground.

The embarrassing moment immediately had many social media users comparing it to the role TV cameramen played in exposing Australia's ball-tampering scandal last March. Sri Lanka lost Lahiru Thirimanne, caught behind off Dale Steyn for nought, but Karunaratne batted confidently to be 28 not out at the close, while new cap Oshada Fernando went on the attack when Du Plessis turned to spin bowling as the light faded to finish on 17 not out.

The Proteas will be looking to continue their good form in Test matches after their series whitewash of Pakistan when they face Sri Lanka at Kingsmead in Durban on Wednesday.
