Centurion Usman Khawaja was first to fall for a brilliant 145 (308 balls, 12x4), trapped LBW by Vernon Philander after only adding eight runs to his overnight score.

Mitchell Starc, despite receiving a blow to the helmet from a Kyle Abbott bouncer, scored the seventh half-century of his career before he hit a return catch to Kagiso Rabada.

Starc scored 53 (91 balls, 5x4, 1x6).

Tabraiz Shamsi then claimed his first wicket in Test match cricket, having Nathan Lyon caught at leg slip by Hashim Amla for 13.

Rabada ended the Australian innings as Jackson Bird (6) edged behind for Proteas captain, Faf du Plessis to take a sharp catch at second slip.
