Elgar drops anchor as South Africa build big lead

When And Where To Watch South Africa vs Australia 4th Test Live Coverage On TV Live Streaming Online

The only negative thing that could be said of South Africa on the second day was the inability of the lower order to help get Temba Bavuma his second Test ton.

Australia toiled in the field, but Josh Hazlewood, Cummins and Sayers couldn't make further inroads before lunch as the Proteas reached the interval on 88/1, with Markram reaching a fourth Test half-century in 90 balls.

Earlier in Sydney, deposed vice-captain Warner said he realised he may never play for Australia again as he tearfully apologised over the ball-tampering scandal.

Aside from the wicket of opener Markram, the home side has looked relatively untroubled on the Wanderers pitch that has variable bounce and some sideways movement for the bowlers to exploit. Burns, returning in extreme circumstances after being dropped after another Australian batting debacle against South Africa in Hobart 16 months ago, stretched for a Rabada outswinger and fell victim to a smart catch from Faf du Plessis moving across from second slip.

The new opening pair of Matt Renshaw (8) and Joe Burns (4) did not last long, while Peter Handscomb - preferred in the line-up to 12th man Glenn Maxwell - chopped onto his stumps for a first-ball duck.

Lyon had his third wicket nine overs later when Vernon Philander's hoick was caught on the mid-wicket rope by Khawaja and Australia had renewed hope of a quick finish.

Khawaja played with great composure, finding the boundary with glorious drives and looking comfortable until he was strangled down the leg side off Philander.

The Marsh brothers were skittled in quick succession, Mitch Marsh (4) dragging Morne Morkel back onto his off-stump. Australia's cricket reputation was torn apart as details emerged of the three players' plot to cheat by roughing up the ball with a piece of sandpaper hidden in a pocket, and their lying to cover up some of the details. Aussies skipper Paine's 62 represented his top score since he returned to the Australian side at the beginning of the Ashes. Paine wheeled around in discomfort and at the end of the over was assessed by the team physio before bravely playing on.

Chadd Sayers was also drafted in for a Test debut in place of injured paceman Mitchell Starc, out with a stress fracture in his leg.

Paine, 33, has required seven operations and three bone grafts since his bad finger break in the 2010 T20 exhibition game and even had to change his grip, unable to hold the bat the way he once did.

First Test Australia won by 118 runs. But their bowling was too inconsistent.

Australia were feeling the pressure when Markram and de Villiers took South Africa to 247-2, setting the crowd off with the tampering taunts. Cummins bowled sharply but the hosts have already built a 401-run lead, with Faf du Plessis' biggest concern at the moment being the timing of his expected declaration on day four.
