Player Of The Match
- How each batsman lost his wicket:
- South Africa: Andrew Hidson (spooned to mid-on), Peter Kirsten (misjudged ball that held up, hit to cover), Hansie Cronje (skied to long on), Jonty Rhodes (down wicket, beaten by turn), Adrian Kuiper (sent back too late by Wessels), Kepler Wessels (attempted impossible single), Eric Simons (going down wicket, beaten by flight), Brian McMillan (bowled round legs), Craig Matthews (faint edge to keeper), Fanie de Villiers (down wicket, misjudged line).
- Australia: Michael Slater (drove uppishly to cover), David Boon (sent back, stranded after Jones drove to cover), Dean Jones (playing across line, ball cut back).
- Attendance: About 18,000
South Africa's Test battles with Australia have been reliably hard-fought. But an overdue victory on home soil is important to the hosts for numerous reasons
