SA v Aus, 3rd Test, Cape Town, day 4

Morkel five-for punish Australia as South Africa to win

South Africa 311 (Elgar 141*, de Villiers 64, Cummins 4-78) and 373 (Markram 84, de Kock 65, de Villiers 63, Philander 52*, Cummins 3-67, Hazlewood 3-69, Lyon 3-102) beat Australia 255 (Bancroft 77, Morkel 4-87, Rabada 4-91) and 107 (Morkel 5-23) by 322 runs.

Cape Town: South Africa seamer Morne Morkel ripped through the Australian batting line-up to inflict a comprehensive 322-run defeat in the controversial third test on Sunday.

The scandal-hit Australia team, which has been caught up in a storm ever since Steve Smith confessed on Saturday that senior players in the side hatched a plan to tamper with the ball, were booed and whistled throughout the day as they were skittled out for 107 in their second innings.

Morkel picked up five wickets for 23 runs as the hosts took a 2-1 lead in the tempestuous four-match series.

Smith stood down as captain for the remainder of the match earlier Sunday after admitting being the instigator of the ball-tampering plot which rocked cricket.

He was then handed a one-match ban by the ICC for his role in the scandal.
