Century for Markram, despite nearly running himself out getting the final run. de Kock has a swashbuckling 50.

Mitch Marsh sneaks Markram out and with Starc back in to clear up the tail, this match might now be over by close.

Good days cricket though the ending was a bit of a farce. Pity about the deVilliers run out or Australia could have been sweating a bit.

That usually means "acting like a Pom, Kiwi or Indian" but not sure what Roo actually meant lol

Good to see you took something positive out of the game !
The thought of Australia "sweating a bit" must have been tantalising !

(had it been England bowling it would have been a "brilliant bit of fielding", at least ! lol

SA have shown good fight to get to the final day after all. Chances are that it will be all done within the first few overs of the first session of course, but fighting for 300 deserves some credit. Markram looks useful, doesn’t he?

Midnight say -
"The only mitigating factor is that it was a very good toss for the visitors to win."

Any toss is a good one to win, and winning it does not always give the advantage.
Think - Recent Ashes tour, how many times did Root win the toss and lose the match ?
Three of the four losses I think.

Yeah. The talk about him having scored 'soft' runs must surely be dispelled now. Doesn't come much tougher than that.

Mr De Kok might have irked him by playing well, scoring valuable runs.
Or he may have looked sideways at him at the wrong moment.
Warner is a narky NSW prik, unlike Usman Khawaja who seems cool under pressure, lol

Of course the captain has to make the correct decision.

Sometimes though, conditions mean it's a no-brainer, and a big advantage to the winner.

SA certainly pushed harder than many thought, but Starc is a huge weapon at both ends of the innings.

As for Warner, he is the quintessential brainless bogan.

I like him better this way, than that new-age reverend Warner we've had to deal with. That was boring AF.

Indeed, for SA after that 2nd innings it would have been a game of if only's.
That deVilliers run out may or may not have been brilliant fielding but it was a brainless piece of running, there was just no run there.

second test begins in 4 days. should be a corker and very heated. this series will either go two ways, south africa will either come back strongly and the series will be competitive, or aus are going to absolutely slaughter them for the remainder of the test.

I think much will depend on the toss in the next match - SA need to win it and bat and get some runs on the board. If not, I can see the same happening again.

Agree, although it is interesting to note that Lyon wasn't a factor in the fourth innings.
