The last three Tests there have been draws. But with Sri Lanka requiring a win there to level the series, perhaps the groundstaff have produced a surface more akin to what first-class teams regularly encounter at SSC. There can be a little help for the seamers early on at the venue, but Sri Lanka will hope for plenty of turn as well,South Africa have, in contrast, appeared settled and at ease in Sri Lanka, both on and off the field. The reserves have been for light jogs around Galle.
