Centurion: Allan Donald, South Africa's bowling coach, believes Sri Lanka will struggle to make a contest out of the remaining two Test matches in the series. The visitors were blown away by an innings and 81-runs in Centurion, being bowled out for under 200 in both innings, and Donald said that although they have a quality line-up, things will not get any easier for them.
"What they have in the tank and what they bring to the party on a different surface will be different but if we're going to bowl like we are at the moment, and the wickets have helped, it's going to be tough for them to come back into this series," he said. "We'll make sure of that."
South Africa's attack benefitted from a green top in Centurion and Donald expects another "bouncy" track in Durban, without "too much lateral movement." Conditions have been so tailor-made to suit the attack that Graeme Smith the batsmen may be "hoping for a flatter wicket" in the near future.
