South Africa vs Australia, 4th Test
RSA 313/6 (88.0 Ovs) CRR: 3.56
Day 1: Stumps
Before Markram registered his second hundred of the series, he watched from the non-striker’s end as Pat Cummins worked hard on the off-stump line to Hashim Amla and eventually reaped rewards for his persistence. The second-wicket association, which yielded 35 before Lunch and 54 after the break, came to an end when Amla chased a delivery outside off and got a thick edge to second slip where Peter Handscomb held on to a fine diving catch.
Brief scores: South Africa 177/2 (Aiden Markram 111*, Hashim Amla 27; Pat Cummins 1-30, Nathan Lyon 1-49) vs Australia.
