Faf du Plessis, who made Test debut at Adelaide, scored 78 runs in the first innings of the Test match.

His 93-run eighth wicket stand with the injured Jacques Kallis got the Proteas past the follow on, pushing the team's first innings total to 388, reports AFP.

And the team now have an outside chance of winning the Test after hitting back late on the third day, with Australia 111 for five, 273 runs ahead with two days left for a result.
