South African batsman Dean Elgar has been reprimanded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after hitting his stumps in frustration during the closing stages of the one-off Test against Zimbabwe in Harare.
Sri Lanka took four wickets in the final session of the opening day of the first Test against South Africa in Galle to leave the match evenly poised after Dean Elgar had earlier reached his century with a six.
South Africa were made to work hard for their runs after electing to bat on day one of the second Test against Australia in Port Elizabeth, but ended it with their highest score of the series to date, closing on 214 for five.
Dean Elgar, who was called up as JP Duminy's replacement ahead of the second Test against Australia in Adelaide, is ready to bat anywhere in the order should he be handed a debut on 22nd November.
He is not alone in that regard - of the team that played in Brisbane four of the top six batsmen had previously opened the batting - but hopes his versatility can benefit the Proteas moving forward.
