Watch Aus v SA 2nd test day 4 full cricket match highlights today from Bellerive Oval, Hobart (Australia), Tuesday 15th November 2016. Rain interrupted yesterday two times during the play but both times it took not so long but in the evening because of bad light Day 3 stumped early.
South Africa scored 326 runs in their first innings in 100.5 overs all out. HM Amla’s wicket had been down at 47, T Bavuma and Q de Kock† took the charge in the crucial stage of the match and played very good innings both batsmen. T Bavuma scored 74 runs off 204 balls and out. Q de Kock† scored 104 runs off 143 balls, he smashed seventeen 4s in his brilliant innings. VD Philander contributed 32 runs.
Toss: SA & chose field.
JR Hazlewood dismissed six South African batsmen in 30.5 overs with leaking 89 runs, MA Starc took three wickets in 24 overs, JM Mennie took one/first wicket on his test debut. JA Burns opener of the Australian team goes with duck, DA Warner scored 45 runs off 78 balls and when his wicket dismissed then it was 22.6 The plan to tuck Warner up has worked. Played onto the leg stump. Coach Lehmann has his hands on his head. Back of a length and on the leg stump, Warner leaps and looks to glance it fine on the leg side. The ball strikes the hip, ricochets off the elbow and the leg bail gets flipped off 79/2.
UT Khawaja scored 56 runs off 103 balls and still not out, SPD Smith captain of the team scored 18 runs and also still not out. So till the end of day 3, Australia scored 121 runs in their second innings with two wickets down which both are taken by KJ Abbott and now Australia trail by 120 runs with 8 wickets remaining. Some poor fielding had been seen from South Africa yesterday from some players but overall South Africa team has done so good job so far.
Play will begin at 10am (that is 30 minutes early) on the remaining two days.
