View dismissal SC Cook c Smith b Starc 40 139 99 4 0 40.40
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
View dismissal D Elgar c Khawaja b Starc 5 30 17 1 0 29.41
6.5 taken this time. 145 kph. Superb bowling. Just lovely. Full delivery outside off, but what this one has is some swing. It moves away late and by that time, Elgar is already driving. Way too late to withdraw his bat and the ball takes the outside edge. Carries at hip height to Khawaja at third slip who bends down and takes it comfortably. Fantastic delivery, the front foot is well behind this time 12/1
View dismissal HM Amla c Renshaw b Hazlewood 5 23 11 0 0 45.45
12.1 edged and gone! Another one. Big wicket too. Renshaw takes the catch at first slip. Fuller than a good length on a fifth-stump line. The ball holds its line or moves away just enough. Amla plays slightly inside the line, the ball takes the edge and carries low to Renshaw at first slip who dives to his right and takes a good two-handed catch. 36/2
View dismissal JP Duminy c †Wade b Hazlewood 5 14 11 1 0 45.45
14.5 another one. Hazlewood picks up his second. The third wicket caught off an edge. This time it is the inside edge. Extremely full outside off, a juicy half-volley on a fourth-stump line. Duminy lays into it, but doesn't account for some late inward movement. Snicks the inside edge and Wade takes a comfortable catch. 44/3
F du Plessis* not out 118 265 164 17 0 71.95
View dismissal T Bavuma c †Wade b Bird 8 40 34 0 0 23.52
42.1 beautiful bowling from Bird. Has been hitting the same length again and again and again. Now gets one to nip, and it takes the outside edge. Superb delivery. Good length on off, gets Bavuma fiddling. The ball moves away ever so little, but a significant amount. Kisses the outside edge and Bavuma nicks off. Got a good 'un. Grin and bear it. Bird finds his length and finds reward. 117/5
View dismissal Q de Kock c †Wade b Hazlewood 24 34 33 3 0 72.72
50.3 superb bowling. De Kock falls. Big, big wicket. A lovely line. Pitches on leg or middle. The ball moves away, keeps angling away. De Kock looks to block but the ball takes the outside edge and another catch for Wade. Another batsman undone by a really good delivery. Has happened six times today. Six wickets have fallen 149/6
View dismissal VD Philander c †Wade b Hazlewood 4 11 9 1 0 44.44
52.6 given but reviewed immediately. Umpire Llong thinks there is an inside edge. Philander doesn't. Is there a spike on snicko when the ball passes bat? There is a spike and the umpire's decision is upheld. A good length delivery on off, the ball comes back in. Takes his inside edge as he defends and then onto pad and then ricochets to the keeper. The fielders were all up immediately. Another one for Australia, superb session this for the hosts 161/7
View dismissal KJ Abbott lbw b Bird 17 64 50 0 0 34.00
67.6 and given! The first wicket that isn't caught. Full delivery on off, Abbott plays around his front pad and is struck in front of off. Umpire's call at worst, so a good non-review again. Abbott was flicking those nicely, but just misses this. Closed his bat face too early. A good hand from Abbott. 215/8
View dismissal K Rabada st †Wade b Lyon 1 12 6 0 0 16.66
70.1 Lyon gets it to turn big, past the outside edge of Rabada's bat, has Rabada dragged his back foot too far as he went to defend off the front foot? Wade is convinced Rabada is gone, and he's right: Rabada's back foot is on the line when the bails come off, Lyon gets his first wicket after 110 fruitless first-class overs 220/9

  Australia 1st innings R M B 4s 6s SR
View dismissal UT Khawaja lbw b Philander 145 465 308 12 0 47.07
108.5 plumb! What happened there? That was prodigious and Khawaja reviews. He knows he's out. A signal of not much to lose from him. Both pads. No bat. A good length delivery on middle, it comes back like a ripping legcutter and hits Khawaja in front of middle. Three reds on HawkEye. Nothing Khawaja could do about that, like Bavuma's first ball to him in Perth. End of a sublime innings from Khawaja, a knock that has put Australia in the ascendancy for the first time this series. Gets a much-deserved round of applause from the crowd 327/7
View dismissal MT Renshaw c Elgar b Abbott 10 59 46 2 0 21.73
15.3 what a catch Elgar. Those channels have been awesome this morning. The umpires aren't quite sure and want the third umpire to check if it has carried cleanly. Soft signal is out. It goes in cleanly, but bobbles out. Is the left hand underneath the ball as it comes out? Remember, there has to be conclusive evidence that the ball has hit the turf. A raucous Adelaide crowd doesn't count. Given. Superb catch. Full on off, the ball moves away just enough to kiss the outside edge. The ball is going straight to second slip, but it won't carry to Faf so Elgar dives to his right from third slip. The ball hits the right hand and looks like it is going straight to the turf off the palm but he brings out the left hand to get underneath. 19/1
View dismissal DA Warner c Elgar b Abbott 11 27 25 0 0 44.00
21.6 gone! Another one for Abbott. He has been splendid through the tour. Abbott bowls this on a good length outside off. The difference? Some movement. Just like he has been doing through the afternoon, Abbott gets this to seam away from the batsman. Warner cannot put away his natural urge to get bat on ball. Has a naughty flirt at the ball, it takes the outside edge and Elgar pouches a comfortable catch in front of his thigh, two-handed 37/2
View dismissal SPD Smith* run out (Philander/†de Kock) 59 159 113 8 1 52.21
60.6 from Shamsi, and a run-out. What a shame. Smith has to go. A wrong un on middle, Smith skews the ball towards point and sets off for a run. Khawaja has come down but isn't running. He probably said no, but Smith didn't hear him. Finally, Smith sees his partner not going through and stops but by that time the fielder has picked up and returned the throw. De Kock whips off the bails. A loud call of Yes from Smith initially. Khawaja called no, but wasn't very loud. 174/3
View dismissal PSP Handscomb b Abbott 54 109 78 6 0 69.23
86.1 that was always going to happen with Handscomb's persistence to play back. Full delivery outside offm, the ball seams back in and goes through a big gap between bat and pad to clatter into off stump. End of a fabulous debut innings, but he will have to work that front-foot problem out. A little bit of inward seam movement gets the wicket. Well bowled. 273/4
View dismissal NJ Maddinson b Rabada 0 16 12 0 0 0.00
89.5 straight through. Maddinson has a duck on debut. Not much Maddinson could do about that. Rabada finds it in him to give it all he has. Some more oomph, more pace, more venom and delivers a searing yorker on off and middle that swings in late. Maddinson gets his bat down but Rabada has outdone him with sheer pace. That is a sensational ball. These aren't conditions you want to be making your debut in. Unfortunate for Maddinson. 277/5
View dismissal MS Wade c †de Kock b Philander 4 6 6 1 0 66.66
90.5 edged and taken. There's that length, this one doesn't beat the bat. It kisses the outside edge. Full delivery outside off, the ball seams away and takes the outside edge. Carries low to de Kock's left. Wade had a nothing poke at that, a result of the deliveries that were moving all over the place before this. Lovely bowling. 283/6
View dismissal MA Starc c & b Rabada 53 118 91 5 1 58.24
115.1 first ball after drinks and Rabada gets a wicket. Overpitched on off, Starc just pops a catch back to Rabada who takes a good return catch, gets his hands up to his right and holds on with both hands. End of a fantastic hand from Starc 357/8

View dismissal NM Lyon c Amla b Shamsi 13 7 8 1 0 162.50
116.3 gone! Off the glove and Shamsi has his maiden Test wicket. A full delivery on the pads, Lyon gets low and looks to sweep yet again, his go-to stroke but is too early through it. The ball bounces a touch and kisses the glove. It lobs off towards leg slip but Amla gets across from slip and takes a simple catch. Lyon happy to walk off 370/9
View dismissal JM Bird c du Plessis b Rabada 6 17 17 0 0 35.29
121.1 edged and gone. Superb catch from Faf. That was flying. Short and wide outside off, Bird flays a cit but the ball takes the outside edge and whistles straight to Faf at second slip who gets his hands in front of his midriff and takes a quality two-handed catch. 383/10

View dismissal HM Amla c †Wade b Hazlewood 45 110 80 6 1 56.25
25.6 gone this time. Hazlewood gets Amla again. But Amla reviews immediately. Big deflection, and it is off the bat. Big white blotch on HotSpot and Snicko confirms that. Gem of a delivery and it needed something like that to get Amla. Pitches on off and moves away just enough. Amla is rooted in the crease because of the length and punches but the ball deviates juuuust enough. Extraordinary review from Amla. Surely he'd have known? Maybe there was bat and pad on that. Yes, it did graze the back pad, the reason for the review. 82/2

57.1 gone! Amazing bowling from Australia. A touch of reverse? Handscomb is mobbed by Warner and his team-mates. They know how big a wicket that is. They also know what a good time that is to get Faf. Starc pushes it full outside off, Faf is drawn into an exuberant drive. Keeps his hands close to hos body, but the ball moves away off the pitch. Takes the outside half and flies low to gully, who gets both hands and holds on. Superb Test match wicket 154/4

66.4 Bavuma is gone. A body blow. Big wicket. Bavuma reviews after quite a while, "That's more than 20 seconds," argues Steven Smith. Another terrible review from a South Africa batsman this innings. Bavuma gets low and wants to paddle sweep, but the ball takes the outside edge, hits the arm and lobs up. Smith gets across from first slip to take it a few metres to his left. Wanted to be positive near the end, but instead SA lose a crucial wicket 190/5

68.3 given. Lyon has three. SA have no reviews so Abbott will have to go. This one is pushed through flat on leg and middle, the ball spins and beats Abbott's inside edge. Strikes him in front of leg. Beaten for a bit of pace too. Umpire Kettleborough says out rather quickly. Didn't look like it was missing. Abbott was pinned, he was so deep in his crease 194/6
View dismissal Q de Kock lbw b Bird 5 17 16 1 0 31.25
73.1 not out says umpire Llong. Phew, that is close. Smith reviews . Did that pitch in line? No bat on it and it struck de Kock in front of middle. So the only question is if it pitched in line. Snicko shows a very thin spike and the third umpire thinks "there's something there". All reds on HawkEye and he advises umpire Llong to change the decision. That spike was too thin to be bat? Just a faint heartbeat-type spike. Well bowled though from Bird. Bowled it full and straight, got it to seam back in just a touch but was aided by de Kock's bat face which closed on the ball way too early. Ended up playing around the front pad 201/7

81.6 that's plumb. 147 kph, cannot miss those. Cook forces his partner to review. Just one question. Is it pitching in line? That was full and swinging back in so I'd be surprised if it did pitch outside leg. Nope, pitched on middle and leg. Philander plays around his front pad and is struck in front of leg. All reds on HawkEye again and SA slump further. Fantastic bowling. Beat him for pace too. 235/8

A short delivery on middle and leg, Warner inside-edges his pull to midwicket. He wants one, Renshaw comes down, then calls no. Warner is quick so he is already halfway down.
