Remember, it's an important innings for him despite the match situation. That middle order has been under scrutiny for a while now. But good show of restraint from Nevill. Playing straight on a fifth day pitch with uncertain bounce. Siddle departs; Two wickets left It took a while coming after the Lunch interval as Siddle and Peter Nevill doggedly defied South Africa before Faf du Plessis had enough and took that second new ball.

Doesn't take long for the eight wicket to come after that. But it was nothing the ball did on this occasion as Philander's delivery skids on from a length to catch him Siddle in front of the stumps under the knee roll.

Five fer for Rabada: Australia lose seven at Lunch What a talent, this Kagiso Rabada! Completes his five-fer with a seering yorker that slips under Mitchell Starc's bat to thud into the pad. It's given out and Starc starts walking. You can trust Starc to know the effects of such a delivery. But he considers a belated review butthere's no escaping his fate. Rabada gives the pitch a little kiss. His captain gives his bowler a peck too. Duminy with the massive wicket Bavuma misses out but Duminy strikes with his first ball.

And it's the massive wicket of Usman Khawaja. The southpaw has fallen for 97 and it's the slider that gets him. He's playing for the turn, there isn't any and the ball sneaks in to rap the pad. There's a hopeful review from Khawaja but the third umpire doesn't walk on these kind of milestone emotions. Is that the Test match for South Africa! Temba Bavuma would have become the 21st bowler to get a wicket of the first ball of his Test career.

It hits one of those massive cracks and keeps alarmingly low. Unlike that Marsh decision, this would have undoubtedly gone on to disturb the timber. Except Bavuma's appeal had to be muted instantly for the umpire had signalled a no ball because of the bowler's overstepping indiscretion. Vernon Philander is covering the shine as he attempts to get the reverse swing going. He's bowling that channel outside the off-stump. But Khawaja has been up to the task in the first hour. He's looking to play straight and that's held him in good stead.

KG Rabada is off the field, sitting in the changeroom with an icepack on his bowling arm. Vernon Philander is going to exhausted tonight. Marsh goes; SA five away It's that man, Rabada! He was bowling a steady spell and just like that he flicks a switch on and produces a pacy full delivery that pings Mitch Marsh on the boot.

To the naked eye, it looks like it would have missed leg and that's what make Aleem Dar say not-out. South Africa opt for the review and gues what, it's actually clipping the leg stump and with the new DRS zones taking effect, that's three reds and Marsh has to go!

Nevill survives a drop chance straight away. It was a tough chance down to Faf du Plessis's left. And Taylor was on ICC cricket committee that approved rule changes this year Just saw Mitch Marsh's lbw Maharaj and Rabada begin: One of them moves to Silly point for the next over.

From the other end, Faf opts for his trump card, Rabada, who gets on to the danger zone from around the wicket to Khawaja. A couple of boundaries but that won't worry South Africa. Day 5 - Pitch: Langeveldt's lessons for Rabada "I told him that your first season is your easiest season but that the second season people will work you out.

He is the type of bowler who wants to improve. South Africa's bowling coach delivered some words of wisdom to precocious quick Kagiso Rabada before the crux series against Australia started and it would appear its taking effect immediately.

On the other side, Peter Siddle, after bowling for four consecutive days of the WACA Test, admits to feeling deflated at being in a losing position. Five overs and no runs have been scored off the bat yet by the Australian openers. Nerves for Renshaw on debut Well played faf Brilliant knock.. Warner had been off for treatment and hadn't been back long enough when SA declared. New openers for Australia: Warner can't open the batting as he has spent too much time off it, receiving treatment for a shoulder niggle.

Who will open for Australia? Warner has spent too long off field to be able to open. Renshaw with Khawaja you'd think. Loving that declaration from du Plessis - a new dynamic thanks to the pink ball and the floodlights. One hell of an innings from Faf.

Well bowled Aussie boys. South Africa have declared late on day one in a bid to make most of the conditions. The Australian bowlers failed to bowl them out as they declare on for 9, with Faf du Plessis unbeaten on Shamsi scores the highest by a debutant at No. What can South Africa do tonight with the ball with 12 overs remaining in the day?

Pressure on the Australian batsmen. Join us in a bit. Faf du Plessis now becomes the first Test captain to register a century off the pink ball!

Nathan Lyon bowling since his last wkt 1st inns Perth in fc cricket: Lyon finally gets a wicket: Nathan Lyon finally gets a wicket after overs in first-class cricket. Quick work from Wade behind the stumps sees the back of Rabada, who had his foot on the line, giving Lyon his first wicket of the match. Faf du Plessis gets to his sixth Test ton, his second at Adelaide, with a couple off Lyon.

It has been a brilliant knock from the South African captain who has had quite a rough week. What a gritty knock it has been from him given the circumstances he came into the Test with. His teammates stood by him through all of that and he's repaid their faith in fine fashion.

Du Plessis is key here if Australia are to get on top. Du Plessis's love affair with the Adelaide Oval continues. Bird comes in and breaks the run stand between Faf du Plessis and Kyle Abbott. The delivery was a full and straight one that the bowler missed completely only to be struck in front of offstump and middle. South Africa have on the board with the captain approaching another century at the Adelaide Oval. Hazlewood puts Australia in front: Hazlewood seems to have fathomed the conditions on offer in day-night Tests well enough as he picked up four wickets today, putting Australia in pole position as South Africa went into Dinner at for 7.

While wickets fell at the other end, Faf du Plessis held his end rather effectively, being unbeaten on 65 when the break was taken. How many can South Africa get before they're bowled out? If they do, can Australia see through the moving ball under lights unscathed? Join us for the last session of the opening day in about 40 minutes. Hazlewood and the Australians appeal in unison for a caught behind.

The umpires rules him out but Philander reviews immediately. Replays, however, show that there's a faint inside edge that was caught on snicko. The ball came back in a bit, the ball ricochets onto the pad but before beng pouched on the keeper. The decision stays, Philander has to go! Australia are in front now with South Africa seven down. Ah, the commentators curse has struck! Ian Chappell was just heaping praise on how Quinton de Kock has counterattacked after Australia's bowlers were on top for the beginning of the second session.

He added quick runs with captain Faf du Plessis who was happy to play second fiddle in a partnership that de Kock dominated.
