TL;DR: Elgar, Morkel put South Africa ahead on attritional day

24 March 2018

Nathan Lyon has delivered the latest twist in a topsy-turvy third cricket Test, clubbing a career-best 47 for the Australians after South Africa seized control of the clash in Cape Town. But it could have been worse for Australia.

Cricket Australia has filed a complaint with Cricket South Africa after two days of sustained abuse of players' families by fans at Newlands.

Morne Morkel had Usman Khawaja caught in his first over as the Australians went to lunch on 67/2.

Morkel, 33, who will retire at the end of the series, was playing in his 85th Test.

Morne Morkel broke the partnership, celebrating his 300th Test wicket when Marsh threw his bat at a wide delivery and edged the ball to the keeper.

Warner sliced the next delivery for another four, but was out the ball after when Rabada tightened his line and smashed the off stump out the ground.

Former Australia batsman Lehmann said he has never experienced the sort of abuse about players' families or other halves that his side have faced in this series.

Warner and South Africa's Quinton de Kock nearly came to blows in a heated off-field confrontation near the dressing rooms in the first test. Rabada was banned, and then overturned his ban, for aggressive and over-the-top celebrations in the second game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have already lost Allen Robinson to the Bears this offseason. "I should be hearing more soon". According to ESPN's Josina Anderson , the two sides have a visit scheduled for Wednesday.

Lehmann confirmed that the man, who was ejected immediately, sprayed the vice-captain with a "personal" and "poor" verbal barrage, three weeks after Quinton de Kock had set Warner off at Kingsmead by making a derogatory comment about his wife, Candice. He complained his team had been subjected to abuse from the crowd in the first two Tests, but it reached a crescendo in Cape Town on Friday.

"What do you want me to say?" he asked. "You're talking about abuse of various players and their families and personal abuse", the Australian coach said. "There's been various incidents throughout the Test series but this one has taken the cake".

Opener Dean Elgar was 121 not out - having been dropped on 53 and 87 - but South Africa's momentum had been completely removed by Cummins after the home team made a strong start to the crucial third test.

Opener Elgar carried his bat through South Africa's innings, finishing on 141 not out, and he and Rabada (22) frustrated Australia in the early stages. He is also the 2nd Australian player to do this feat after Vic Richardson.

The reason for the shooting was unclear, Mr Cameron said, adding, "We don't know the relationship; we don't know the motivation". More than 40 "active shooter" episodes in schools have been recorded in the United States since 2000, according to F.

The tourists finished the day at 9-245, still trailing South Africa by 66.

Elgar battled gamely, hitting 17 fours and a six and batting all day for his 11th test hundred and first of 2018.

Bowling: Starc 21-3-81-1 (2nb), Hazlewood 23-4-59-2, Lyon 19.5-6-43-2, Cummins 26-6-78-4 (1w), M. Marsh 7-2-26-1 (1nb, 1w), Smith 1-1-0-0. South Africa were well set towards a big score at 220/2 before a Pat Cummins' 4-wicket haul saw them collapsing.
