South Africa lost opener Dean Elgar before heavy rain stopped play on the fifth and final day of the series-deciding second Test against Sri Lanka on Monday. Elgar was dismissed by off-spinner Dilruwan Perera in the truncated start-stop first session that saw the visitors add 17 runs off seven overs. Quinton de Kock, promoted up the batting order, was batting on 28 with first-innings centurion and skipper Hashim Amla on four at the break. The hosts, who posted 421 in their first essay, had bowled out South Africa for 282 in their first innings to gain a 139-run lead.
