(With the series levelled 1-1 the third Test of the contest is expected to be a humdinger. All the good work done by Mitchell Johnson in the first Test had been equalled by Dale Steyn in the second. Catch live cricket scores of the match in our live blog below)

Play has been called off for day two with Australia still going strong, led by an inspiring knock from Michael Clarke, who is batting on 161. JP Duminy’s four wicket haul proved to be the lone bright spot for the Proteas, with figures of 4 for 73. Australia are 494/7.

Australian spin legend Shane Warne,  who joined the squad ahead of the final Test was caught napping while his buddy Michael Clarke was flourishing on the second day afternoon.

  Meanwhile, Australian journalist Jim Maxwell shares this on Twitter…  


The proceedings on the second day have been halted by rain, and the umpires decided to call for an early tea break. Read the second session report here.

Michael Clarke brings up his 150 in style, pulling Kyle Abbott just over the man at mid wicket for a boundary.
Michael Clarke and Shane Watson are looking good and its Lunch on Day two. Clarke is growing in confidence since his hundred and Watson has looked in solid touch since the start.
Michael Clarke crawls to his hundred after being tied down by Kyle Abott for about 24 balls while Steve Smith is going strong, playing some fine shots on both sides of the wicket.
Play has resumed on the second day with Australian batsmen starting off on a cautious note. Michael Clarke took two runs off Vernon Philander to open the account for his side this morning.

Hello and welcome to the live updates of the second day’s play of the third Test between South Africa and Australia at Cape Town. David Warner hit a century and captain Michael Clarke battled his way back into form as Australia dominated the first day of the series-deciding third and final Test against South Africa at Newlands on Saturday.

Warner put a week of controversy behind him and hit a sparkling 135 off 162 balls in an Australian total of 331 for three.  Clarke, who twice needed treatment after being hit, went past 24 for the first time in 12 Test innings to make 92 not out on a day when South Africa lost strike bowler Dale Steyn with a hamstring injury midway through the afternoon, AFP reported.
