The series has seen some ugly and untoward incident but nothing as dirty as Australia s deliberate ploy of ball-tampering. They got caught on live TV and things snowballed into one of the biggest controversies. Cameron Bancroft was caught in the act and captain <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/steven-smith" target="_blank">Steven Smith</a> admitted that the leadership group were aware of it. <p></p> <p></p>Cricket fraternity has blasted Australians for tarnishing the sport and even Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull regretted the incident. <p></p> <p></p>Coming to the Test, South Africa have piled up a 294-run lead with AB de Villiers and Quinton de Kock at crease. They have five more wickets remaining. South Africa are in a comfortable situation and are eyeing a win. How Australia put the career-defining controversy behind them and come out and perform will make the proceedings even more interesting. <p></p> <p></p>The live telecast of Day Four will be available on Sony Six and Sony Six HD. Whereas, the live streaming of the match will be on SonyLIV.
