Sri Lanka win toss and bowl first against Proteas

Despite South Africa's poor record in Durban Maharaj is confident of South Africa making a flying start to the two Test series

"The two new guys - we hadn't seen much".

Fernando got extravagant swing early in the day after new captain Dimuth Karunaratne won the toss and sent South Africa in, while Lakmal got steep bounce in an opening spell of one for six in seven overs.

"He (Bancroft) probably saw it two minutes after it happened and very smartly our cameraman focused on the coaching staff and we saw the coach (Darren Lehmann) get on the walkie-talkie to the player down on the field (Peter Handscomb), who ran on to speak with Bancroft".

"I think what surprised us was just the angle of their bowling and the skills they had", de Kock said.

Vishwa Fernando arguably owed his place in the team to the fact that three of Sri Lanka's leading fast bowlers were missing because of injury.

The visitors clearly on top after their bowlers kept South Africa to 235 but a big day ahead of them.

He said SuperSport have seven dedicated cameras that are instructed to follow the ball at all times during play - and said that is how they were able to catch Bancroft red-handed. The exceptions occurred at Kingsmead in the only two Tests Sri Lanka have played at the ground.

Ajax midfielder De Jong fit to face Real Madrid
But it started confidently and Tadic almost gave Ajax the lead, his 26th-minute shot hitting the post after beating Courtois. Gonzalo Higuain says Maurizio Sarri helped ease him into life at Chelsea with his "methods" and "words".

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 was affordable as Amla made only three before being caught low down at second slip by Kusal Mendis off Lakmal, who had an outstanding first spell of one for six in seven overs. Temba Bavuma and Faf du Plessis put on 72 for the fourth wicket before Du Plessis was caught down the leg side off Rajitha for 35.

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

Fernando and Kasun Rajitha (3-68) shared seven wickets as the hosts - Quinton de Kock (80) aside - struggled on a helpful pitch for bowlers. De Kock, batting at number six because South Africa picked five specialist bowlers, found himself batting with the tail.

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.

Opener Lahiru Thirimanne was the wicket to fall, caught by wicketkeeper De Kock for a duck off seamer Dale Steyn.

Steyn had become South Africa's highest Test wicket taker, eclipsing the previous record set by Shaun Pollock with 421 wickets.
