Angelo Mathews hopes to see a reaction from Sri Lanka in the third Test with South Africa after they were comprehensibly beaten in Cape Town on Friday.
"It was pretty much a flawless performance".
Cape Town - Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis has praised his team for their clinical performance against Sri Lanka in the second Test at Newlands.
"[It was an] fantastic performance from KG [Rabada]. He's an extreme talent for us and he's going to be very valuable for us in future".
Sri Lanka were 130-4 in their second innings at stumps on Day 3, chasing the mammoth 507-run target set by South Africa.
Resuming the day at 130/4, the visitors lost Dinesh Chandimal (30) and Upul Tharanga (12) a few overs into the day's play, which triggered a lower-order collapse.
"It's disappointing to repeat the same mistakes over two Test matches", Mathews said.
Since South Africa's readmission to worldwide cricket in 1991 the sides have met in only two- or three-test series.
"You need long hours of concentration against a quality attack like South Africa".
Opener Dean Elgar battled through seam-friendly conditions to score a century as South Africa reached 392 in its first innings despite losing the toss and being asked to bat first.
De Kock hung on again after Suranga Lakmal gloved a well-directed short ball from Rabada, leaving Keshav Maharaj (1-64) and Vernon Philander (1-64) to take a wicket apiece as Rangana Herath was stranded on 35 not out.
"For an opening batsman to get a hundred on a wicket like that was great batting, and there was great bowling from our bowlers", Du Plessis said.
Sri Lanka's 19-year-old speedster Lahiru Kumara grabbed six South African wickets as he ended up with a match-bag of seven scalps. "Just those moments in the game, every time we stood up and it's always someone difference, which as a captain is the most pleasing thing".
South Africa won the first Test in Port Elizabeth by 206 runs and will be seeking a whitewash of the series in the third Test at the Wanderers in Johannesburg from January 12 till 16.
