But it was a grind, with the captain surviving when an inside edge off Boland sent the ball rolling onto his stumps only for the bails to stay on, then being dropped by Nathan Lyon. Green got Australia’s second wicket when Theunis De Bruyn attempted a pull shot and wicketkeeper Carey took an easy catch. Disaster then struck with a sluggish Elgar needlessly run out by Labuschagne going for a single on 26, and Bavuma fell for one next ball, edging Mitchell Starc to Carey after a poor shot. When and where to watch? The 2nd Test match between Australia and South Africa will be played between December 26-30 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Early pressureSouth Africa started the day nervously, losing Sarel Erwee and Theunis de Bruyn cheaply. It was stunned just before Lunch when Elgar, who passed 5, 000 Test runs, and the experienced Temba Bavuma departed in consecutive balls. It left them in trouble at 58 for four and the inexperienced middle order facing a daunting task. When Khaya Zondo was out in the fifth over after lunch for five, courtesy of a stunning Marnus Labuschagne diving catch, the end looked nigh before Verreynne and Jansen dug in.
Australia complete series win in dominant fashionBy Matt Bungard29 Dec 2022 03:47You are kidding - another absolutely embarrassing run out for South Africa!

"It's immensely frustrating from a South African point of view, when you consider they've thrown away two wickets today, and another on day one, that were entirely avoidable. "That is just a calamity, " Ian Smith added. "Just dreadful cricket, honestly. "The way that Temba Bavuma and Khaya Zondo ran between the wickets earlier was analysed as being mostly the former's fault, and this is again the case.
On a humid day, Cummins asked some searching early questions, dropping Elgar on seven off his own bowling and then having two big lbw shouts against Sarel Erwee denied. Erwee lived dangerously and was no match for local hero Scott Boland. The seamer, who took 6/7 in the corresponding Test against England a year ago, came on to thunderous applause and got the breakthrough in his second over, with Khawaja taking a low catch at third slip to remove Erwee for 18. South Africa’s batting has been under the pump recently and as the senior player, Elgar knew he had to stick around.
