South Africa had a disappointing opening day of the first Test against Australia but brought things to level after Day 2. The Test stood evenly poised at that stage. Now, after Day 3, things hinge towards the visiting side with them closing play at 390/6 and in the lead by 388 runs.

The day belonged to JP Duminy and Dean Elgar who struck 141 and 127 respectively to dominate the first two sessions of play even though JP was dismissed right before Tea.

The final session saw Australia restore some pride and even create a chance to dismiss the visitors on the day itself but Faf du Plessis (32), Quinton de Kock (16*) and Vernon Philander (23*) snatched that momentum from them.
