Australia lost an early wicket in the form Usman Khawaja but that did not stop them from harming the opposition in any way or form as David Warner stabled the ship alongwith Marnus Labuschagne with a stand of 54 runs. The latter gave away his wicket through a run-out to keep Warner at the crease on his 100th Test match. Warner made sure he makes this innings count and boy, he did it by racking up a double-century after going through a lean patch in the Test format recently. Steven Smith supported him well but fell out on 85 runs. Later, Alex Carey smacked his maiden ton to add on to the misery of the Proteas. Travis Head and Cameron Green also played a valuable knock and chipped in with half-centuries. The latter though played through a lot of pain as he injured his finger and sat out during South Africa’s second innings with the blade. Eventually, Australia ended up posting 575 on the board which turned out to be too much for the Proteas.
