South Africa surpass 400 runs following Vernon Philander loss

Jean-Paul Duminy leads South Africa's attack as they reach 414-8 at tea on day two of the first Test against Sri Lanka.

South Africa have made steady progress in the afternoon session on day two of the first Test against Sri Lanka by reaching 414-8 at tea in Galle.

Quinton de Kock struck a maiden Test half-century before getting dismissed just one run later as the Proteas reached 331-7 at lunch.

Jean-Paul Duminy took charge of South Africa's attack, but lost his partner Vernon Philander (27), who was dismissed for an lbw following a delivery from Angelo Mathews, who claimed his first wicket of the Test.

Morne Morkel came to the crease, but Sri Lanka's bowlers were able to slow down the run-rate as the 29-year-old hit just nine from 22 balls.

Morkel will return to the crease for the evening session alongside Duminy, who is unbeaten on 72.
