At 195 for 1, South Africa had made a near-perfect start to the Tests after the victorious ODI series, but Sri Lanka hit back with four wickets after tea to edge the day on a flat, dry pitch.

Dean Elgar became the first South Africa opener to make a Test hundred in Sri Lanka but his dismissal soon after tea kick-started the hosts' fightback.

Suranga Lakmal and Dilruwan Perera picked up 2 wickets each while Rangana Herath grabbed 1 wicket.

At stumps South Africa were on 268 runs for the loss of 5 wickets.
