South Africa definitely will be the happier of the two sides at the moment. They would have dreaded a long day in the field after the first session but now find themselves batting. Still trail Australia by more than 200 runs but they will back themselves to bat well. The live telecast of the match will be available on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Whereas, the live streaming of the match will be on SonyLIV.

Day 1 belonged to one and only Kagiso Rabada. After bagging a fifer is batting with a strike rate of 121.42. His wicket of Steven Smith saw Australia experienced a mega collapse. They somehow managed to reach 243 after the lower order contributions, 61 runs to be precise by the last two wickets.

South Africa’s reply, they did start cautiously but then lost the wicket of the last match centurion Aiden Markram. Dean Elgar has batted watchfully, putting a couple of bad balls away to the boundary.
