Watch SA v Aus 3rd test day 2 full highlights today from Adelaide Oval (South Australia) Friday 25th November 2016. Yesterday South African team captain F du Plessis won the toss and he decided to bat first and South Africa scored 259 runs with the loss of nine wickets on the first day in 76 overs.

SC Cook opener of the South African team scored 40 runs off 99 balls and out, he completed his innings with four 4s.
When SC Cook’s wicket down then it was 32.1 edged and taken. The fourth caught behind the wicket. Like the previous ones, this one too moves. It goes the other way. Pitches on-off angled across outside off. Cook has a nothing poke at that. Gets a thick outside edge and Smith takes an easy catch at second slip in front of his midriff. Just reward for some tireless bowling from Starc. 95/4.
