AUS v SA highlights today – Fourth test day one from The Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg (South Africa) Friday 30th March 2018. The opener of the team D Elgar scored nineteen runs and then dismissed by NM Lyon. When his wicket fallen then it happened like this: 17.6 and Australia have their first strike! Lyon gets Elgar again! Elgar comes charging down, looking to work the ball away through mid-on, but like in the previous over, the ball spins, takes the leading edge and lobs towards Sayers. He had initially misjudged the ball, but reacted well, went back and took an overhead catch. 53/1.
AK Markram smashed all Australian bowlers all around the park, he completed his beautiful innings with the help of seventeen boundaries and a maximum. He scored 152 runs when his wicket dismissed then it was 70.5 the second time he has got out like that after a sensational hundred in the series! Back of a length outside off, Markram goes back and carves a dab to gully. Not quite in control of that shot. It was a back of a length, moving away, and he chose to dab it fine. He has been scoring with that shot right through the series, a good low catch from the gully. 247/3.
South Africa won the toss and elected to bat first.
