Kagiso Rabada struck shortly before the close to restore South Africa's ascendancy on Day Three of the second Test against Australia here yesterday. Australia were 180-5 in their second innings at the close, a slender lead of 41 runs with five wickets remaining. A magnificent century by AB de Villiers enabled South Africa to take a first innings lead of 139 and Australia lost four wickets before they wiped out the deficit.

But Usman Khawaja (75) and Mitchell Marsh (39 not out) shared a fighting fifth wicket partnership of 87 and almost succeeded in taking their team through to the fourth day with at least a glimmer of hope.

Then Rabada struck for the third time in the innings. Bowling around the wicket he trapped Khawaja in front of his stumps with a full delivery after the left-hander made 75 off 136 balls.
