Australian Cricket Team had won the toss & elected to bat first in the 3rd Test Match against South Africa. The Aussies have already sealed the series whereas South Africa is not only playing for pride but to stake a claim in the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final.

Marnus Labuschagne was looking in sublime touch. On the 5th ball of the 40th over, Labuschagne was playing the cover drive and edged the ball to the 1st slip where Simon Harmer claimed the catch and the umpires signaled out as the soft signal but later 3rd umpire astonishingly gave not out.

Exciting Contest on Cards

The pitch at the SCG is by no means easy for the batters where we won’t be able to see high scoring match. Australia’s score is 147-2 in 47 overs where due to bad light, the Day 1 ended quickly. Proteas got a a huge wicket of Marnus Labuschagne who was looking dangerous where the batter scored 79 runs in 151 balls where he struck 13 fours.

Anrich Nortje has been the stand-out bowler where he took 2 wickets in his spell of 11 overs where he gave away 26 runs. Skipper Pat Cummins would be hoping that the team score at least 350 runs to give the bowlers a crack at the opposition.
