Proteas looks at a white face of embarrassing series – The Citizen


Proteas is on the verge of the probationary series of Probation series embarrassed after the fall of another batting on the second day of the second Test against Sri Lanka at Port Elizabeth on Friday.

Having led from 68 running after a fairly efficient performance with the ball, South Africa lost all those gains by slipping into a bad 128 all out in their second class.

He left the Sri Lankans with a target of 197, which was pulled down to 137 as they closed at 60/2.

Although the total number of forces in the second sheet would still send some wave of shock running, it is no longer a surprise.

Two years of preparing bowls friendly surfaces have eroded the Proteas bat's confidence.

They no longer tend to dig for long boats simply because they have been condensed to believe that one will never really feel anymore.

The next distribution could be very good in your last and that means that you have to take advantage of before the "inevitable" strikes.

That was particularly noticeable as Aiden Markram and Hashim Amla redundancies.

Markram found a midwicket short from a supply that should have gone to the fence, while his experienced team had found the edge after giving up a full-off drive that did not turn.

Quinton de Kock, a South African batting hero in this series, also caught her in a land that was not trying to try to turn Lakmal Suranga to her leg.

As a result, the Proteas reduced to a total of 90/3 in the long run.

Skipper Faf du Plessis appointed 50 untreated, but even played a non-criticized wift with the last man in the crew, just for the classification to be called no-no.

Yet, it was an example of boat thinking.

Given how tasty the bats are today, it's not surprising that the tail has shown no more than just this series.

Earlier, Kagiso Rabada led South Africa's bowling effort with fines of 4/38, focusing on hitting improvements and rewards.

Duanne Olivier supported him with 3/61, but lost control after a great start and dropped essential runs.

Redundant insulators for 154 should have set the home side in a good position.

That did not happen.
