England vs South Africa, 2nd T20: Jason Roy's controversial dismissal mars series-levelling Proteas win
Jason Roy's bizarre dismissal turned the second T20 international's South Africa's way as the Proteas won by just three runs at Taunton on Friday
South African batsman AB de Villiers is close to retiring from Test cricket in order to extend his time in limited-overs formats, a media report said on Sunday.
South Africa coach Russell Domingo says his side will have to show patience on what is expected to be a slow wicket at St George’s Park for the first Test against Sri Lanka starting on Boxing Day.
That coach Russell Domingo was forced to field a question about the captaincy of the South Africa team was testimony to the impact Faf du Plessis had on the series.

South Africa coach Russell Domingo has said that a couple of crucial partnerships and performance of the spinners were the key to India's success in the fourth ODI here.

The offspinner claimed AB's wicket for the second time in Cuttack en route to becoming the highest wicket-taker for India in the format.
Aware but not in awe of Indian batsmen's command over spinners on home turf, South African coach Russell Domingo today said the Proteas would rely on their pace battery to rattle the formidable home line-up in the upcoming cricket series.
