South Africa have reached 58 for the loss of two wickets in their second innings at the end of the second session on Day Three of the second Test against Australia.

 

After Australia’s first innings ended at 246, South Africa lost their captain early again, as Graeme Smith again lost his wicket to Mitchell Johnson in the fifth over of the innings. He was clean-bowled round his legs by the Australian paceman.

 

Dean Elgar and Hashim Amla then carried the innings till the 12th over before Peter Siddle got Elgar’s wicket. Faf du Plessis then joined Amla in the middle.

 

South Africa know that they have a good chance of winning this Test match, and will be wanting to strengthen their position by the end of the day.

 

Earlier in the day, Australia’s first innings collapsed for 246 as none of their batsmen, except for David Warner (70) and Steven Smith (49), who showed some resistance. Other than them, none of the Australian batsmen could withstand the pace and swing of the Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn and Wayne Parnell.

 

Morkel was the pick of the bowlers for South Africa as he picked up three wickets for 63 runs.

 

Brief scores:

 

South Africa 423 and 58 for 2 (Hashim Amla 24*; Mitchell Johnson 1 for 20) lead Australia 246 (David Warner 70, Steven Smith 49; Morne Morkel 3 for 63) by 235 runs.
