Perth: Dec 3, 2012

Australia will aim to put up a strong batting display, as they will resume at 40 for no loss, ion the fourth day of the third and final Test match against South Africa.

Earlier on the third day,  AB de Villiers scored a scintillating innings of 169 runs off 184 balls as South Africa were finally bowled out for 569 by Australia on day three of the third and final Test at Adelaide. Australia were 40 for 0 at stumps and 592 runs behind with six sessions to go.
 
de Villiers brushed aside his recent poor form by using every unorthodox shot possible in his innings that included a whopping 21 fours and three sixes at a strike-rate of 91.84. His first century since January this year came off three consecutive reverse-sweeps off Nathan Lyon as he silenced his critics in style. A chunk of his runs came in the deep mid-wicket and long-off areas of the pie where he smacked six fours and all three of his hits over the fence.

After getting the Proteas’ lead past the 600 mark, he made some room to go for a big heave over extra cover off Mitchell Starc, but managed to find the edge that went straight to keeper Matthew Wade.
 
Brief Scores: South Africa 225 and 569 (Hashim Amla 196, AB de Villiers 169; Mitchell Starc 6 for 154, Mitchell Johnson 4 for 110) lead Australia 163 and 40 for 0 (David Warner 29*) by 592 runs
