Australia would have hoped for a better start to Day Four considering how they have fared in the second Test thus far against South Africa. With as many as 8 wickets in their kitty and the likes of Steven Smith and Usman Khawaja still out in the middle, their were chances that Australia might stretch the game into Day Five. Rain or no rain, Kyle Abbott and Kagiso Rabada were in no mood to play on until Day Five.
