Day 4 of the third Test at Cape Town witnessed a dramatic ending as Australia were bowled out for 107 and South Africa won the Third Test by a massive margin of 322 runs. Chasing a daunting target of 429, Australia began on a good note as openers Cameron Bancroft and David Warner forged a 50-run stand. But after Tea, it all went wrong for the Kangaroos as they fell like nine pins. Morne Morkel was the star of the show as he returned with figures of 5/23. For his match figures of 9/110 Morkel was awarded the man of the match.
Earlier, South Africa extended their lead closer to 400 on day four of the third Test against Australia. They lost both overnight batsmen AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock but were in a very strong position. Australia, who were hit by ball-tampering controversy last day, had a disturbing news again on Sunday when captain Steve Smith was handed a one-match ban due to yesterday’s controversy. Tim Paine was leading team in the third Test and had to suffer a disappointing loss in his first outing.
