South Africa produced a resolute display of batting on Day 3 and continued with that in the opening session of Day 4 to snatch the game completely from Australia’s desperate clutches. Quinton de Kock and Vernon Philander added to the already heavy lead and Keshav Maharaj also scored some key runs to hand Australia a whooping 539 to win.

In reply, Australia lost sets of wickets in quick intervals to be four down with the help of some excellent Temba Bavuma fielding and then Kagiso Rabada’s sensational spell late on. At close, Australia were 169/4 and still need 370 to win – an improbable task on the final day.
