South Africa vs Australia 3rd Test Day 2: South Africa were pushed on the back foot in the last half an hour of the day when Nathan Lyon took on the Proteas bowling attack. He scored an aggressive 38-ball 47 to provide some resistance to Australia who were left struggling at 175/8. Earlier, riding on Dean Elgar’s unbeaten 141, South Africa posted 311. In reply, Australia got off to a good start when Cameron Bancroft and David Warner compiled 43 for the first wicket before Warner was sent back by Kagiso Rabada after his off-stump was sent for a toss. Australia kept on losing wickets at regular intervals and were dominated thoroughly by the Proteas. But courtesy, a cameo from Lyon and a sensible batting display from Tim Paine ended Australia’s day at 245/9 and they now trail by 66 runs.
