Cricketzine prediction: Elgar crashes after Australia forces episode

Josh Hazlwood and Nathan Lyon reignited the attempt after an excellent morning session that saw Australia pick just one wicket and hopes of a late victory waned. Simon Harmer and Keshab Maharaj were the frontrunners of South Africa’s defiance, but their resolve was broken early in the second session. South Africa rose from her 244-to-7 to 255, allowing Australia to claim the succession. South Africa, batting for the second time, also lost captain Dean Elgar early.

The session began much as it ended when Maharajji addressed his five and a half centuries. However, Hazlewood ended his stay shortly after achieving the milestone. The fast bowler, who turned 32 today, went wide from the crease, moved the ball with one touch, and hit Maharaj on the front pad.The batter was caught in the crease without moving his foot to save the ball. With the ball potentially hitting the bat before hitting the pads, Maharaj made a check, but he was no help as Australia eventually broke through to end their 85-run eighth wicket stand.

Hamer, on the other hand, continued to be overly cautious from the morning session, adding only two runs in the 24 balls they faced. On the 25th, he separated himself from his body as Hazelwood underwent surgery on the fifth stump canal, eventually playing the ball towards the stumps and leaving for 47. Only in the next over did Nathan Lyon put an end to South Africa’s struggle to avoid the episode, with an acrobatic return he knocked out Kagiso his Labada with a catch, giving South Africa his 255th innings. folded.
