South Africa will look to produce a dominant series display against Sri Lanka, starting with the first Test in Port Elizabeth on Monday, to build on last month’s triumph in Australia. Even without leading trio AB de Villiers, Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, the hosts are expected to defeat their island opponents who have lost eight of their 10 previous tests in South Africa. A 2-1 series victory in Australia in November boosted morale for Faf du Plessis’ side, who were badly beaten in India 13 months ago and then lost a home series to England during which captain Hashim Amla stepped down.
