South Africa vs Australia Live Score 4th Test Day 3 Live Streaming Australia trail by 378 runs

Captain Faf du Plessis reserved praise for Vernon Philander after the bowler inspired a 492-run victory over Australia in the fourth Test in Johannesburg.

The absence of Smith and Warner was glaring at the Wanderers, although the tourists' batting woes were an issue on the trip long before the former captain and vice-captain were shamed and sacked.

"This, as a whole, is the most complete we have been in a series". In each instance, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Keshav Maharaj were central to proceedings. Chasing an improbable target of 417 runs for victory, South Africa were in trouble at 136/5 when Markram combined with Quinton de Kock to add 147 runs for the sixth wicket and gave his side a glimmer of hope. Du Plessis said: 'After that first Test match, the guys were really motivated to turn it around.

Despite his off-field antics, Warne is undoubtedly one of Australia's greatest ever Test players.

"But we've also got some guys here who have played some very good cricket at an worldwide level for a long time who will need to step up again now that we've lost two of the best players in the world". In the match, Tim Paine has become the 46th captain in Australia in Test competition. We saw in the morning that he was the one guy who was running in and getting all the wickets.

Hashim Amla may have had a poor series by his standards, but he still chipped in with a valuable half-century in Cape Town that went a long way towards giving the hosts the ascendency in that match. "I am really looking forward to welcoming more future Proteas through the programme". He said the change in team culture that had been spoken about after the scandal had already started. "Time will tell what sort of effect that will have on their dressing room".

The 33-year-old Morkel, who made his global debut in 2006, says he will miss playing front of the South African public but is happy to pass the torch onto another young player. Du Plessis added that while the team was sad to see the global retirement of stalwart seamer Morne Morkel, he feels their bowling stocks look good going forward. "And I believe this is the best we have been right through a series". We've been winning a lot of series but there have been little holes where we could improve.

"It's going to be a different style to what a lot of the guys have been used to but I think we'll find it pretty quickly". It's an exciting time. This will be used to fund bursaries for young cricketers residing in disadvantaged communities, empowering them with educational opportunities and dedicated sports' coaching. "We are always incredibly proud to be a part of this Trust which has a proven track record for success".

Mitchell Marsh's 96 in Durban was Australia's best individual effort.
