With Quinton de Kock’s poor form also continuing, it appears that the Proteas will once again have to rely heavily on the veteran duo of Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla. Skipper Du Plessis was the top scorer for the visitors, scoring 79 off just 85 balls. Amla, the captain on South Africa’s last tour to Sri Lanka, wasn’t too far behind either, making 78 before he retired.
