  • South Africa vs Australia Live Score 4th Test Day 3 Live Streaming Australia trail by 378 runs

Thus, with a rather inexperienced side, Australia suffered one of its biggest losses in Test cricket, when they lost the fourth Test match against the Proteas by 492 runs and with that, the series 3-1.

Philander finished with 6-21, and six wickets for just 12 runs on the day, clinching a third straight victory of the series for South Africa.

It really would have been agonising for Morkel had he not been able to bowl for one last time in global cricket, after leaving the field with a side strain on the third day of the fourth and final Test at the Wanderers.

South Africa hit back with big victories in Port Elizabeth, Cape Town and Johannesburg to record the nation's first home Test series win over Australia since the end of apartheid.

The side have been rocked by a ball-tampering scandal in which former captain Steve Smith, his deputy David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft were sent home after the third test and handed hefty bans. "Not one day did I not enjoy coming to nets". This group had a chance to show some real fight and determination, but unfortunately we weren't able to.

"At the moment there is a fair bit of disappointment and borderline embarrassment in our change room".

Following the rampant on-field and the off the field controversies during the entire dramatic Test series between Australia and South Africa, the visitors are finding themselves in a very distress and awakening situation.

"The performance is concerning, no doubt about that". Du Plessis said: 'After that first Test match, the guys were really motivated to turn it around. "Now we have the opportunity to go home and start again nearly". He dismissed the Marsh brothers, Shaun and Mitchell, with the first and fourth balls of the morning and Australia never recovered.

The rebels have been negotiating with Russian Federation , a key ally of Assad, for days on an agreement to evacuate Douma. Army of Islam officials did not respond to requests for comment by The Associated Press.

While Ambrose capitalised on the Fremantle doctor, pace and trampoline bounce, Philander's adherence to minimal seam movement on a 10c piece outside off-stump corroded Australia's batting confidence.

Pat Cummins (one) left a delivery that cannoned into his off-stump and Chadd Sayers (zero) edged to Dean Elgar at gully as the Australian innings ended in a rush of failures.

Australia had made only 340 runs for the match; South Africa had that many well before lunch on day two.

Skipper Faf du Plessis was more supportive.

"What we've probably found out in the past month or so is that the Australian public and our fans don't necessarily like the way we go about it. This series has been incredible the way we have put it all together".

Tempers boiled over in the series on a number of occasions, but Paine said he was looking forward to sharing time with the South Africans.

Paine, backed as the nation's long-term captain by CA board member Mark Taylor, says teammates are ready to launch the next generation of Australian cricket.

"Those are the sort of things I'm going to miss a lot. We are very happy to do that".
