Keshav Maharaj to Oshada Fernando. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot defending, to silly mid off for no runs, fielded by Maharaj. Well what a day's play we've had today. In total 18 wickets have fallen and the game is certain to finish tomorrow, presuming there are no interruptions. It's interestingly poised too. Can Sri Lanka get the last 137 runs required to win and become the first Asian side to win a Test series in South Africa? Join us again tomorrow morning to find out.

FOUR! Keshav Maharaj to Oshada Fernando. Stock length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control past deep cover for 4 runs. Well it's the penultimate ball of the day, it's well wide of off stump but the young Sri Lankan is not to be deterred. He drives on the up through the covers for four.

FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Kusal Mendis. Length ball, off stump on the front foot working, well timed past long on for 4 runs. That's all timing from Mendis. No effort whatsoever put into hitting the ball hard but it still went quickly to the boundary.

FOUR! Duanne Olivier to Kusal Mendis. Half volley, middle stump on the front foot flick, well timed in the air under control past deep mid wicket for 4 runs. That has raced to the boundary. Amazing how batsmen in this game have been completely beaten and then the very next delivery sent the ball flying away to the boundary.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Oshada Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot pushing, thick edge past third man for 4 runs. Not entirely convincing but that's four more to Fernando. He is happy to play at balls quite wide of off stump so I think Rabada will keep bowling that line.

FOUR! Kagiso Rabada to Oshada Fernando. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed past deep point for 4 runs. Glorious drive through the covers. That was by no means a half volley. Fernando leaned on the ball and caressed it to the cover boundary.
