Lethal Starc puts Australia on the brink after Markram's defiant century

Mitchell Starc swept away the South African tail with lethal reverse swing for the second time in the match before being denied a potential hat trick and a 10-wicket haul by bad light in an eventful fourth evening of the opening Sunfoil Test match between the Standard Bank Proteas and Australia at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Sunday.

Starc, Lyon run through Proteas as Australia take charge of 1st Test

Australia took a firm grip on the first Sunfoil Test match at Sahara Stadium Kingsmead on Friday as the Standard Bank Proteas struggled first to avoid the follow on target and then get anywhere close to the visitors’ first innings total on the second day.

AB de Villiers stood man alone as none of the other specialist batsmen stayed long enough to share a substantial partnership with him. The major damage was done first by the spin of Nathan Lyon and then by the ability of Mitchell Starc to reverse swing the old ball effectively.
