Dale Steyn took three quick wickets to hand South Africa momentum in the second Test against Australia in Port Elizabeth on February 23, 2014. Australia entered the final session on Day Four with their score at 141 for one. They are chasing a 448-run target.
Australia had lost the wickets of Alex Doolan (5) and Shaun Marsh (0) after tea. Morne Morkel had dismissed Doolan and Vernon Philander got Marsh out LBW on the first ball.
Then Steyn came into the attack and struck thrice quickly. Michael Clarke was the first to go for one as he edged an out-swinger to Faf du Plessis at second slip.
Steven Smith was then out first ball LBW. The ball was at a good length and coming in. Smith missed the line and the ball struck in-front of middle and leg-stump.
Steyn then bowled a fast in-swinging yorker to uproot the stumps and dismiss Brad Haddin for one. Australia were left at 166 for six after 53 overs.
