Australia vs South Africa 3rd Test - Day 3 - Sydney - Highlights
Australia 445 and 0 for 33 (Hayden 18*, Katich 9*) lead South Africa 327 (Boucher 89, Amla 51, Siddle 5-59) by 151 runs.
Well another Enthralling day comes to an end. Australia seems to be holding all the aces in this match as they lead by 151 runs. SA lost their way in the morning until Boucher and Morkel rescued them. Then Siddle roared in and knocked over the tail. Hayden survived some anxious moments including a plumb LBW to fight for another day. It should be a gripping 4th day.
Peter Siddle's first five-wicket haul in Tests halted a familiar third-day fightback from South Africa, who, with the exception of Mark Boucher and Morne Morkel, finally showed signs of tiring at the end of a whirlwind series. Australia closed the day with an advantage of 151 and on a cracking surface it was a more than useful buffer with ten wickets in hand.
Matthew Hayden survived a perilously tight lbw shout from Dale Steyn late in the day as Australia faced a tricky 20-minute period that closed a day that, but for one partnership, belonged largely to Australia. Boucher and Morkel combined for a 115-run sixth-wicket stand, the only highlight for a generally lacklustre South Africa.
