The Proteas powered by Philander, who took a five-wicket haul and Kyle Abbott, dashed hopes of the hosts of a memorable comeback notching up 8-wickets between them to bundle the home side for 85 runs. However, the fast bowler refused to take the praise following his 10th-career five-for, saying, It was a magnificent all-round performance from everyone. Catches need to be taken, there was also a magnificent run-out, all those things add up to a collective team effort and allow you to bowl a team out. You need those things to go your way, it was a magnificent performance, he was quoted as saying by <em>Sport24</em>. <strong><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/south-africa-in-australia-2016-200380/live-scores/australia-vs-south-africa-2nd-test-match-181140-summary.html" target="_blank">FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Australia vs South Africa, 2nd Test at Hobart</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/australia-vs-south-africa-2nd-test-day-1-report-mitchell-starcs-3-for-mends-damage-for-hosts-as-visitors-gain-86-run-lead-545871" target="_blank">South Africa in reply struggled as Mitchell Starc inspired-Australia kept control </a>in the flow of runs limiting the visitors to 170 for 5 taking a lead of 86 runs at stumps on Day One. Looking at the scoreboard I think we are a little bit ahead. There is still a lot of work to be done, there is still a lot of cricket to be played. We are a team that wants to get as many runs as possible in the first innings to give us a big lead. The job is nowhere near done, there is a lot of cricket to come, Philander said. <p></p> <p></p>Temba Bavuma (38 not out) and Quinton de Kock (28 not out) will lead the response on Day Two. The Steve Smith-led side lost the first Test of the three-match series by 177 runs at the WACA.
