SA only lasted 4 more overs. All out for 292.

Aussies won by 118 runs  :thumbsup.

Next up: Officialdom deciding on the Warner vs de Kock fracas.

We got 4 quick wickets after Tea thanks to some excellent reverse swing bowling to have them 6/183 and in trouble but de Villiers with help from Philander have steadied South Africa to give them a 20 run lead at stumps.

Aus  243
SA 7/263

Gutsy fightback by Khawaja & Mitch Marsh but Khawaja going just before stumps looks like being the killer blow  :P.

Aussies 5/180 ....... a 41 run lead.

Warner  13
Bancroft 24
Smith    11
S.Marsh   1
Khawaja 75
M.Marsh 39*
Paine       5*

Rabada 3/38

Dont think we will have to worry about Rabada for the remainder of the series

Forget his bump on Smith (who's batting abysmally BTW),  his send off of Warner was disgraceful

Made Warners send off and carry on of the de Villiers run out in the first test look like a game of hopscotch

Australia    243 & 239

South Africa   382 & 102/4

South Africa won by 6 wickets

Allowing SA to gain a 140 run lead in the first innings proved the difference in the end. If they had been forced to chase a target of 200 in the fourth innings then it would've got interesting.

SA 8/266 ....... Cummins 4/64

Cummins saved the Aussies crashing through SA's middle order after they were at one stage 2/220.

Can't stand cheats and not all teams can jump up on the pedestal.
But that was just stuffing stupid and outright cheating so dumb by the Aussie cricket team.
Really disappointed

Smith should be stripped of the captaincy and suspended.(blessing in disguise because he's a shyte captain anyway).

Bancroft and whoever else was involved should be suspended.

Lehmann should be sacked.

As a cricket tragic I am absolutely gutted and disgusted at what's happened.

I'll go steps further Dio. Lehman sacked. Smith never to play for our country again. Fan out all conspirators involved and minimum 1 year out of the game. I feel sorry for Bancroft - he was sucked into this by those in charge.

I just can't believe this. A national disgrace.

No offence to those from other parts of Aus (and the world) but I'd like to see Victoria secede from the rest of the country, at least with regards to cricket. I'm sick of seeing Victorians overlooked and put into the maybe pile. Our stocks fund cricket Aus as much as any other state, moreso than most, and we are constantly walked over.

Yep heads need to roll and I do kinda feel for Bancroft, sad situation where he wouldn't have the confidence to just say NO I'm not doing that.
