South Africa’s middle-order batsman Faf Du Plessis was highly unfortunate to miss out on a well-deserved double hundred in the ongoing Boxing Day Test against Sri Lanka at the SuperSport Park on Monday.

Du Plessis was caught by his counterpart Dimuth Karunaratne on 199 in the 138th over of South Africa’s first innings. The former Proteas skipper has now become the 11th batsman in Test history to get out on 199.

Du Plessis was the top scorer for the hosts as they took a comprehensive lead of 225 in the first innings against Sri Lanka on the third day. At stumps, Sri Lanka were struggling on 69/2 with Kusal Perera unbeaten on 33 and Dinesh Chandimal on 21 not out.
