150.5OUTClarke to M Morkel, out M Morkel Run Out!! So South Africa have finally ended their first innings after five sessions. Flighted delivery on the stumps, Morkel flicks it to mid-wicket and looks for a quick single, Steyn simply turns his back and Smith's throw was right in front of the stumps for Haddin to whip the bails off in a flash. Morne was just short of his crease there. M Morkel run out (S Smith/Haddin) 1(4)423/10
149.4OUTLyon to Duminy, out Lbw!! Lyon picks up his 5th Test fifer with that wicket! Flighted delivery from round the wicket, Duminy goes for a reverse sweep trying to get some quick runs, he misses and is struck plumb in front of middle and leg, the umpire raised his finger immediately and Duminy reviews in vain. Anyway, a gutsy, gritty knock under pressure from the left-hander. Duminy lbw b Lyon 123(231) [4s-14]420/9
148OUTLyon to Parnell, out Caught by Haddin!! Lyon ends the session with the wicket of Parnell. This was looped up outside off, Parnell seeks to go big but fails to make proper connection. Parnell is undone by the turn as he nicks it off to Haddin, who takes a sharp catch. Lyon is quite pleased. Parnell c Haddin b Lyon 10(37) [4s-1]413/8
144.4FOURWarner to Duminy, FOUR, length delivery outside off, keeping low as well, Duminy looks to drive but he toe-ends it, the ball sneaks through the keeper, very fine. Bonus runs for the hosts403/7
140.4OTHERWarner to Parnell, no run, good length delivery outside off, Parnell pushes at it and gets beaten. Haddin goes up for a caught behind appeal instantly. Snicko reveals that there was no proof of an edge and rules it in favor of the batsman. So, the on field call remains394/7
139.2FOURLyon to Duminy, FOUR, a fighting ton for Duminy, well played! This is also his first at home and third overall. This was flighted delivery on off, Duminy sweeps it powerfully, the ball travels to the deep square leg fence. He has a giant grin on his face. He eases the helmet off his head and salutes the crowd as well390/7

57OUTM Morkel to R Harris, out Caught by du Plessis!! South Africa finally manage to bowl Australia out. So they can enjoy a 177-run lead now. Full delivery outside off stump, Harris goes for the drive and gets a thick edge, second slip moves to his left and takes a good catch above head height. The ball was flying but he did well to cling on. R Harris c du Plessis b M Morkel 26(26) [4s-4 6s-1]246/10
56.5FOURM Morkel to R Harris, FOUR, gets the line wrong and Harris makes him pay big time. Full on the leg stump with not much of protection in front of square on the on-side, Harris flicks well and sends it to the deep mid-wicket fence246/9
55FOURM Morkel to Siddle, FOUR, oh that's a good hit from Siddle. He picked the fullish delivery from the stumps and literally whipped it very fine, the man at fine leg isn't square to win the race. Handy runs these for Australia235/9
53.3FOURPhilander to R Harris, FOUR, South Africa will have to be careful not to leak some easy runs. Good length delivery outside off stump, Harris swings hard and gets a bottom-edge that goes through the vacant third slip region. Australia wouldn't mind them228/9
53.2SIXPhilander to R Harris, SIX, okay, no more pondering about the follow-on, Australia have avoided it and Harris does it in style. Short of a length delivery on the off stump, Harris pulls it in the air and clears the deep mid-wicket fence224/9
52.5OTHERM Morkel to Siddle, no run, Robin Peterson, the man at leg gully was convinced that Siddle hit it and he asked his skipper to review, but in the end, the short ball down the leg side didn't touch anything. Turns out to be a bad call from the fielder there218/9

63.4FOURSiddle to Duminy, FOUR, beautifully driven by Duminy. It was bowled very full by Siddle, Duminy gets on the front foot and caresses the drive between extra-cover and mid-off268/5
61.4FOURSiddle to Duminy, FOUR, cracking shot! It was full on middle and off, Duminy comes on the front foot and lofts it to the long-on fence for his first boundary256/5
61.1FOURSiddle to Amla, FOUR, elegant shot by Amla. It was a good length delivery on middle and leg, Amla leans on the front foot and clips it to the deep mid-wicket fence251/5
57.3FOURSiddle to Amla, FOUR, Siddle offers some width and pays the price for it. It was a slightly back of a length delivery outside off, Amla just leans forward a touch, opens the face of the bat and slaps it to deep backward point235/5
57OUTLyon to de Kock, out Caught by Clarke!! A soft dismissal for de Kock. It was bowled slightly short by Lyon, de Kock looks to cut and gets a thick outside edge and the ball travels safely into the hands of Clarke at first slip. de Kock c Clarke b Lyon 34(58) [4s-3]231/5
51.5FOURR Harris to Amla, FOUR, what a way to bring up this 21st Test ton! It was a fuller ball outside off, Amla creams the drive to the square third man fence. It is also his 5th against Australia215/4

73.4OUTElgar to Lyon, out Lbw!! Elgar has got the last wicket to fall. Lyon is the man to go, he looks stunned, so are the men in yellow in the dressing room. Celebrations begin in the SA camp. This was tossed up on middle and off, Lyon was on the back-foot as he looked to defend and missed, the ball struck him in front of middle and off. Was there an edge on that? Well, it does not really matter now. Replays are in, and Hot-Spot shows a flicker on the bat before hitting the pad. Lyon can't review either, he stares in disbelief. What an end to the Test match. Lyon lbw b Elgar 0(4)216/10
72.1OUTDuminy to Chris Rogers, out Chris Rogers Run Out!! Tragedy for Australia, will SA wrap it up tonight? This was tossed up and on off, Rogers gets forward and drives it towards mid-off, decides to take on Petersen's arm, the fielder had just one stump to aim at, he makes a direct hit and Rogers has to walk back. South Africa are chuffed to bits, the Aussie camp looks shocked. Smith went up to a disconsolate Rogers and shakes his hands. Chris Rogers run out (A Petersen) 107(237) [4s-12]214/9
71FOURSteyn to Chris Rogers, leg byes, FOUR, looks to evade the bouncer but he's hit on the helmet. The ball goes over the keeper to the fence214/8
69OUTSteyn to R Harris, out Lbw!! An effort ball this from Steyn. Really swung this good length delivery back in sharply, Harris is on the back foot to defend, he misses and the ball thuds into the pads in line with middle and leg. Umpire Dharmasena took ages to give the decision. He put his finger up and then Harris reviewed it. Unfortunately for him and Australia, Hawk-Eye says the ball will just hit the top of leg. Boy! That extra half an hour is doing wonders for South Africa! R Harris lbw b Steyn 6(29) [4s-1]209/8
68.3FOURSteyn to R Harris, FOUR, down the leg side, Harris just glances it on its way to the fine leg fence209/7
67.4FOURM Morkel to Chris Rogers, FOUR, fullish delivery outside off stump, Rogers pushes with an angled bat through cover-point, he says 'no' to Harris who looks to run, the ball runs away to the fence205/7
