Galle, Sri Lanka: Speed bowler Dale Steyn took five wickets as South Africa seized control on the third day of the first Test against Sri Lanka on Friday. (Scorecard)
Steyn, 31, unleashed some fiery bowling without much help from a dry and flat track to finish with figures of 5-50, his 23rd five-wicket haul in Tests.
At stumps, Sri Lanka were 283-9, still trailing the visitors by 172 runs with just one wicket in hand. (Vernon Philander Fined by ICC for Ball-Tampering)
