Philander in the first innings, twin fifties from de Kock, that Duminy-Elgar stand and last but not the least What a five-fer in the second innings! He is one for the future.

What about Australia though, they were swept under the carpet in Sri Lanka and have now lost the first Test of the summer. Lots of question marks over their middle order and the undercooked bowling attack as they head to Hobart.

To run in for 31 overs, KG was phenomenal on a deck which was still good to bat on. To get the results was a great achievement for him. We were very disappointed after the first day. We were determined to come back and put some solid performances on day 2. There were a lot of guys putting their hands up.

A nice big partnership between JP and Dean to take the game away from the Aussies. He [Keshav Maharaj] had a job today.

Obviously did not get the rewards that he would have liked but he was awesome. Bowled good lines and lengths, and made sure that the scoreboard never moved too quickly for the Aussies. It is always important to have your tail contribute.

We were in a reasonable position after the first day. We could not capitalise on that. Credit to the way Duminy and Elgar played. They took the game away from us. It was hard to come back from there. We have had a few collapses of late in Test cricket.

That has let us down. Something which will have to improve on. We will try and get our best performance. We will have to play better cricket against a quality South African side in Hobart. They have played some good cricket throughout the week. We have got to turn it around quickly. I am very proud of my team. We lost Dale and he is a key aspect of our team. When Dale was gone, it meant we had to do extra. Little bit of a bowler's paradise, still a bit flat.

The ball reversed, Australia also got it to reverse. Australia have got a good batting line-up but we could ask questions. I will be ready for Hobart if I get chosen. Played 27; Won 21; Draw 6 ausvsa. Bavuma ends stand The Hazlewood defiance ends. Bavuma induces a leading edge of Hazlewood and Elgar takes a catch at cover. A sigh of relief because this partnership was annoying them.

Now they should be able to close it out. Half chance put down: Just over 30 overs to go in the day's play. Is there another twist in this tale? You get such thoughts when half chances go down. Amla dives low to his right at first slip after Bavuma induced an edge off Hazlewood but he cannot hold on And the stand builds on Nevill gets 50; Nevill-Hazlewood add 50 Frustration builds for South Africa as this ninth wicket partnership has now batted more than an hour now to add India looking for more from Pant.
