Cape Town - Leg-spinning great Shane Warne, fresh off his hole-in-one at Augusta National, is in Cape Town for the third Test between South Africa and Australia.

SCOREBOARD: Proteas v Australia, 3rd Test

Warne, who took 708 Test wickets in his stellar career, arrived at Newlands in time for the first ball to be bowled on Thursday morning.

Warne, 48, took to Instagram to post: Great to be back in #Capetownas I love South Africa & the people here.

Warne also confirmed he will be in South Africa for the fourth Test at the Wanderers from March 30-April 3.

Often the tormentor of Proteas batsmen during his career, Warne achieved a life-long goal earlier in the week when he aced the famed 16th hole at Augusta, venue for the Masters which will take place from April 5-8 next month.

It was Warne's first ever perfect 'fluke'.
