Starc's nine-wicket match haul fetched him Man of the Match award

Starc's nine-wicket match haul fetched him Man of the Match award

Opener Aiden Markram looked an unstoppable force as he nearly single-handedly outscored his side's first-innings total before being removed for 143.

Starc's match-winning consistency has overshadowed those of all of Australia's most celebrated left-arm pace greats, except for Mitchell Johnson. "Hopefully we can move on and play in the right spirit for the next three Tests". It later lead to heated argument between de Kock and Warner while heading to the dressing room at tea.

In only his 12th Test innings, Markram showed the poise of a savvy veteran as he withstood a collapse to deliver when his team needed it the most. De Villiers had to turn and tried to go back but could not beat David Warner's throw to Lyon.

After the run-out and caught in the mayhem was the over the top celebration from both Lyon and Warner.

Smith's version was disputed by South African manager Mohammed Moosajee, who blamed Warner.

Warner and Lyon have no recent charges, meaning it's likely both will escape with a slap on the wrist if they are booked, while Rabada risks a two-Test ban if he is charged.

Paine agreed Starc was sacked up in the middle session.

"This is where the umpires need to step in as soon as they start to hear stuff", former Australia opener Katich told ESPNcricinfo, having called the match. The problem was that he was never under real pressure for his place until the selectors were forced to look at Klaasen.

"There are a few here and there, but it's not the end of the world". It certainly mixes the batsmen's feet up a little bit and makes them play in a certain, different way. Markram was unaware of Lyon's ball drop.

Markram has confirmed a number of words had been exchanged on the field. "He's got a job to do and he knows what that is and we expect him to do it well".

The centurion protagonists from those matches, AB de Villiers (0) and Faf du Plessis (four) sunk without a trace. It was nothing aggressive.

"I feel like I've been improving and doing a lot of very good things. sometimes they aren't necessarily recognised out in the middle".

Apple is making its own high-end noise-cancelling headphones
Apple purchased Beats for $3 billion in 2014 , and Beats has been Apple's main headphone brand until the introduction of AirPods. There's been no indication yet on when, if ever, Apple would release these headphones.

Starc removed three batsmen in an over in what appeared to be the final push.

"It was good to see actually".

"In the first innings we thought the short ball was a real weapon for us, and we still think that's the case".

Thankfully for the South African he managed to put some runs on the board and not be knocked over for a pair. Amla made eight before he was trapped by Hazlewood.

Amla sent the decision up for review but the DRS couldn't save him and he was sent packing. If you are saying something you've got to take it and that's the opinion of Quinton.

Aiden Markram showed the Australian bowling attack doesn't quite have the requisite answers when the attack is taken to them.

"I'm going to tap Josh Hazlewood on the shoulder and go "Here mate, he's all yours", Starc said to 8 to 11). In fact, 31% of his Test wickets are tail-enders.

Markram raises the bat as Lyon looks for answers. This was the third-highest score by a South Africa batsman in the fourth innings of a Test, and the second highest by any batsman when chasing in South Africa since their readmission.

"We've got used to Davey over the years".

With a four-Test series it allows individual battles to develop as the teams learn about technical and mental deficiencies, players poke and prod at opponents hoping to identify and exploit any kind of weakness with which to pounce and use against them in the upcoming Tests.

"That is a brilliant, brilliant hundred", one commentator proclaimed.
