This was a match which looked to be going Australia's way with 5 wickets of South Africa already down after the end of the fourth day's play yesterday.It took some brilliance by Faf Du Pleiss and some resilience by Jaques Kallis to help them go through the day without loosing.South Africa ended the final day loosing 8 wickets and ending this thriller in a draw. Below are the highlights of the day along with the scorecard.
