Hello all! Thomas Frost back for the 3rd session of the 4th day of the 3rd test between South Africa and Australia. Australia 47/0 chasing a world test record 430 to win. Not too much happening for South Africa. The odd ball has misbehaved but not a lot for Australia to worry about...on the pitch anyway!

In case you haven't heard Steve Smith has been fined 100% of his match fee and banned for 1 game. Cameron Bancroft fined 75% of his match fee and given 3 demerit points. Some saying it's not harsh enough. Ball tampering is a level 2 offence and a 1 game ban is as harsh as they could be under the guidelines.

Keshav Maharaj to open proceedings after tea. Bit of turn immediately.

Warner down the wicket, slight leading edge evades Maharaj. 2 off. 49/0 - Target 430 Warner 27 Bancroft 22

Kagiso Rabada to bowl from the other end.

FOUR - Full, tailing in, draws Bancroft forward, loose drive, inside edge passed the stumps to the fine leg boundary. Lucky boy,

4 off. 53/0 - Target 430 Warner 27 Bancroft 26

Maharaj continues. Wide half volley that Warner doesn't put away.

Warner using his feet, turns, hits the pads, half an appeal but outside the line. Warner plays an aerial drive that drops short of at Faf at cover. FOUR - Overpitched and wide, Warner advances, gets to the pitch, takes it on the full and hits through the covers. 4 off. 57/0 - Target 430 Warner 31 Bancroft 26

Rabada continues to Bancroft, beats the outside edge first ball.
