2:11pm Welcome back! Almost time for the chase. If you want a recap of the first innings, I've put up a little report here

1.28pm Sri Lanka didn't have a great start with Lungi Ngidi getting rid of the openers cheaply but Oshada Fernando and Kusal Perera took the side to 99 before Imran Tahir broke the stand, getting the latter caught-behind. Oshada was run-out but Kusal Mendis and Dhananjaya de Silva took the side to 195 for 4 in the 37th over and Sri Lanka were looking good for 300. But Tahir came back to get both batsmen out as Sri Lanka lost last six wickets in 36 runs. Tahir says he hasn't seen this much spin from the Wanderers wicket but it should play better in the second half. We will be back soon with the chase, stay tuned.
