South Africa




Good Afternoon everyone. Welcome to the MBM of the 3rd session of day 2 of the 4th and final test of the South Africa v Australia test series. Temba Bavuma was left stranded on 95* but played superbly well and any hope Australia had of squaring the series has surely gone.

South Africa scorecard:

Australia's bowling figures:

So a new era dawns. Matt Renshaw and Joe Burns return to the Australia fold at the expense of those who must not be named.

Vernon Philander to start proceedings. Renshaw facing, leaves the first ball.

Renshaw works off his legs for a couple and Australia are away. The talk is that this is a different Matt Renshaw to the one who last played for Australia. Apparently he's playing a lot more shots. He's been in great form in Sheffield Shield cricket. I thought he was unlucky to be dropped in the first place.

Edged just short of gully. 2 off. 2/0 Renshaw 2 Burns 0

Kagiso Rabada to share new ball duties. Joe Burns to face up for the first time.

Just the 87mph loosener for Rabada's first ball...

Defensive push into the off side and Burns is away.
