Australian captain Steve Smith sets his field
12 March, 2018, 18:40
Trailing by 139 runs, Australia got off to a disappointing start as opener David Warner was clean bowled by Rabada for 13. That left Australia 180-5 at stumps and with a small lead of 41 runs with just five wickets left.
De Villiers took nearly two years out of the Test arena to concentrate on the shorter formats of the game and spend more time with his young family but came back in December.
Rabada was found guilty of a level two International Cricket Council (ICC) code of conduct offence of "inappropriate and deliberate physical contact with a player" after leaning with his shoulder into Australia captain Steve Smith when he dismissed him in the first innings, an ICC statement said.
And as Khawaja trudged off, it was hard to see a way out for Australia, with South Africa - greatly boosted by De Villiers' first Test ton since January 2015 - well on top. However, his 84-run stand for the eighth wicket with Philander ended when he was caught brilliantly by Cameron Bancroft off Pat Cummins (3-79). It was around in his playing days - he was a willing participant - and it was around before him too.
But the departing batsman was told to wait as the third umpire investigated whether the catch was clean and, upon revision, it was discovered that Khawaja's foot had touched the ground before he released the ball.
Even though Maharaj was castled by Hazlewood, de Villiers batted through to take the total to 382 in 118.4 overs.
Sunday was an exhibition of how much De Villiers' skill will be missed for the 34-year-old tore into a high-quality Australian bowling attack without breaking a sweat.
Ronaldo scores 2 to overtake Messi as top scorer The 25-year-old has netted 29 goals in 30 appearances across all competitions this season, providing 19 assists as well. Barcelona eased off in the second half with its Champions League match against Chelsea at Camp Nou looming on Wednesday.
When Smith brought the field up, the Proteas champion went aerial, as the lead ballooned with no bowler looking like penetrating the batsman's defence.
To put that in perspective, Australia is scoring fewer than three runs an over in its second innings.
Ngidi, who replaced Morne Morkel in the only change in either side, took three for 51 while Vernon Philander bowled with superb control to take two for 25 in 18 overs.
South Africa then started well with the ball.
Mitchell Marsh was solid in defence and Khawaja had swept and reverse-swept effectively, also driving handsomely through the off side when given the chance.
The fifth-wicket partnership wasn't the only cause of concern for the hosts; by the 54th over both their reviews were gone, each an lbw call that was refereed and found to be missing leg. Bowling around the wicket he trapped Khawaja in front of his stumps with a full delivery after the left-hander made 75 off 136 balls.
It had followed a similar delivery which drew a leading edge - so on the second attempt, de Kock played inside the ball and watched in horror as it gripped and turned past his bat. "So you know you have to get to him quickly and it's important that some of our players get around KG before he gets close to the batsman", De Villiers said on Sunday.
