Australia outplayed South Africa for the third day in a row to take a commanding overall lead in the third Sunfoil Test match at Sahara Park Newlands on Monday. Australian captain Michael Clarke made his expected declaration overnight and then his bowlers worked their way through the South African order to dismiss them for 287 and claim an overall lead of 207 runs.

When rain washed out the final three hours’ play Clarke had advanced his individual score to 161 (301 balls, 17 fours) but more importantly had taken the Australian team total to within six runs of the 500-run mark.
