39.4 Morne Morkel to Josh Hazlewood

OUT! Caught. Morne Morkel to Josh Hazlewood. Short, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to third man, by Philander. Hazlewood plays needlessly at another short ball and he's scooped it into the hands of Philander down at third-man. Morkel takes the wicket and has his five-for, what a fantastic bowling performance from the man who could well be playing his final Test match. Australia have lost all 10 of their wickets for just 50 runs and all in the space of one session in the final embarrasment which concludes a disasterous game marred with controversy and bad temper. All of the bowlers played their part once the flood gates opened and took the wickets within the space of just 19.4 overs. What a finish here at Newlands as South Africa take a 2-1 lead in the series and Australia now boast the worst collapse of the week, I thought England would have secured that hands down. Credit to the umpire's for keeping the players on the pitch later than they have throughout the first three days of this Test match in order to get it completed. South Africa will be elated and Australia have some serious issues in their camp to address over the next few days. Bancroft and Warner had looked so promising before Tea but following their dismissal only one other batsman could reach double figures in an utter shambles of a performance. Thankyou for joining us, the series is still alive with one game to go, the drama won't be finished just yet. Remember this game for both Lyon and Morkel passing 300 career Test wickets, Morkel's brilliant five-for in the second innings which brought about his best bowling match in potentially his last game and some top quality batting performances from South Africa throughout.
