Adelaide: Nov 25, 2012

South Africa will look to push for a win  on the fourth day after Australia were left struggling at 111 for five at the end of third day’s play at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday.

Rory Kleinveldt led yet another fight back by South Africa on the third day of the second Test against Australia at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday as the hosts closed on 111-5 in their second innings, leading by 273.

The Proteas endured a torrid morning session with the bat after resuming on 217-2 with high hopes of challenging Australia’s formidable first innings score of 550, AFP reported.

But five wickets tumbled for the addition of just 17 runs as the tourists collapsed to 250-7, still 300 in arrears.

An eighth wicket stand of 93, featuring an injured Jacques Kallis batting at number nine, restored some respectability to the innings with Faf du Plessis looking as assured and confident as any Proteas debutant in recent years during a stylish, yet resilient, innings of 78 from 159 balls with 13 fours and a six.

Brief Scores: Australia 550 and 111 for 5 (David Warner 41, Ed Cowan 29; Rory Klienveldt 3 for 14) lead South Africa 338 (Graeme Smith 122, Faf du Plesis 78; Ben Hilfenhaus 3 for 49) by 273 runs.
