SA vs AUS 4th-Test: Proteas seven wickets away from victoryLast updated on Apr 02, 2018, 11:00 pm
In-form South Africa need just seven more wickets to win the fourth and final Test against Australia.
The hosts lead the series 2-1 and will be hoping to wrap things up early on Day 5.
At stumps on Day 4, Australia are reeling at 88/ 3 and need another 524 runs to win.
Jaded Aussies will have to battle hard to earn a draw.
Australia lose three scalps early
Australia lost three wickets for just 68 runs as needed graft went missing.
Matt Renshaw's rare break for Aussies turned sour as he failed to deliver yet again.
Joe Burns played well for his 42, but fell eventually. Usman Khawaja too could not do justice at number three.
Peter Handscomb (23*) and Shaun Marsh (7*) are at the crease and need to bat long.
Faf du Plessis special floors Aussies
After resuming the day at 134/3, Proteas managed to add another 210 runs.
A splendid knock by Proteas skipper Faf du Plessis floored the Aussie attack. The senior player smashed 120 runs, and in the process smashed his 8th century in Tests.
The amazing batting effort helped South Africa set an impossible target of 612 runs for Aussies.
Morkel on song in his farewell Test
Morne Morkel picked two crucial Aussie wickets in the second innings. The player, who is set to retire post this Test, has three wickets in the match and has already reached a figure of 309 scalps. He will surely be wanting more on Day 5.
