SA guts Aussies in historic home series victory

Before falling Markram became the second quickest batsman to get to 1000 Test runs- in terms of number of days from debut

By contrast, South Africa completed their biggest victory over the Australia in tests by runs, and sealed their first home series win over the demoralised visitors since 1970.

Australia lost the last two tests by 322 runs and then an even more humiliating 492 runs, underlining how much morale disintegrated after the cheating scandal, and maybe how much of a challenge it's going to be to rebuild for a cricket team regarded as the best in the world over the last 30 years.

After losing the opening Test in Durban, South Africa needed one of their big-match performers to step up in the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

On South Africa, Paine added: "They were outstanding". So, now the 4th and final Test has started earlier in 30th March, 2018 and so, according to the latest news, Australia chasing target at Johannesburg. "We have potentially had our heads in the sand over the last 12 months that if we continue to win we can act and behave how we like and the Australian public will be OK with that".

That contest was ironically South Africa's most-recent home Test series win over Australia. So, all three have punished and ruled out from the current squad. "I'm pretty sure it's going to come out in the next couple of days but I haven't put pen to paper, so I can't give you any further update", a non-committal Morkel said during the press conference on Tuesday (April 3) following South Africa's landmark victory in the fourth Test. In the match, once again Proteas won the toss and made a decision to bat first. At the start of the four-game series against Australia, when he announced that it will be his last worldwide assignment for the Proteas, not many expected him to have a great swansong, especially in light of the arrival of Lungi Ngidi.

At the time the album dropped, she posted other images from the same shoot showing a model that is definitely not Brophy. However, one of the interview's highlights was her reason to not give adult family members Christmas gifts.

The outcome was mixed, with South Africa admitting surprise at the "docile" nature of the Australian team who succumbed to such an embarrassing defeat. They scored full 488 runs in the first innings and before the declaration, they lost all wickets. The three highest run-scorers of the series were South Africans.

"I asked the doctor what is the worst that can happen and I was happy to do it", he said.

The former Aussie leg-spinner reckons that following the ball-tampering scandal, a lot of opportunities will be coming for the players to prominently grab them.

On his way to career-best figures, 50 Test wickets against Australia and 204 Test scalps, Philander removed Tim Paine (seven), Pat Cummins (0) and Chadd Sayers (0) before Nathan Lyon's (nine) run-out ended proceedings.

Hashim Amla may have had a poor series by his standards, but he still chipped in with a valuable half-century in Cape Town that went a long way towards giving the hosts the ascendency in that match.
