Going into the final day of this enthralling test match South Africa need a further 276 runs with 8 wickets left for what would be an unlikely victory and a world record run chase. In a topsy-turvy contest the bookies now have all three results back in the mix. South Africa’s recent run chase in Perth when they chased down 414 to win will still be fresh in both teams minds, this could well come down to a battle of who holds their nerve best.
Australia will have been boosted by the removal of Graeme Smith late on in the day but know that the South Africans won’t give them anything without the fight. There is a scheduled 98 overs for the final day due to time lost over the course of the match.
