Sri Lanka have been in great touch this year as they won everything there was. This includes a memorable ICC World T20 2014 victory and a Test and a One-Day International (ODI) series victory in England. However, South Africa beat them in the ODI series and then took the lead in the Test series by winning at Galle. The pressure is on Sri Lanka to come back into this series and level things before they go on to face Pakistan. Follow Live Blog of Day Two of the 2nd Test between Sri Lanka and South Africa here
