Day 4 of the second test between Sri Lanka and South African concluded on Sunday with Sri Lanka in the driving seat.

When stumps were called early July 27 evening owing to the poor light, the Proteas were on 38 for the loss of one wicket.

Sri Lanka declared their second inning earlier Sunday having posted 229 runs for the loss of 8 wickets, holding a commanding lead of 369.

Kumar Sangakkara notched up another career statistic, scoring his 50th test half century scoring 73 runs.

Skipper Angelo Matthews chipped in with 63, his 16th test half century. Chasing a target of 369, the Proteas were struck an early blow when Alviro Peterson was caught at silly mid-off off the bowling of Rangana Herath.

The Proteas require another 331 runs with 9 wickets in hand.
