Australia have been made to wait until Monday to triumph in the first Test at Kingsmead.

The silver lining is Starc may have a shot at a maiden Test hat-trick. The earliest he could be available is the third Test in Cape Town, but that is optimistic given that he still needs to play at least one, and preferably two, domestic first-class games to prove his fitness. We just thought if we got one wicket, the way Starc bowls to the tail, it will happen very quickly.

South Africa fought back in the second half of the match, bowling with more goal to bowl out the tourists for 227, then recovering from a nightmare start to their second innings, largely through Markram, who made 143, and De Kock.

"He gets a chance tomorrow now", said Tim Paine.

However, the team from down under have now taken the lead of 1-0 and would love to conitnue in the same vein during the series.

His 87 run stand with Markram resisted Aussie charge before Jos Hazlewood (2-57) returned to have de Bruyn caught behind but with Markram and de Kock (81 not out) playing positively, South Africa headed into tea with a score of 167 for five.

Paine's instincts told him to come up to the stumps to all-rounder Mitchell Marsh in a bid to find a way through Markram. Starc's crippled spell helped Australia and which results, South Africa were bowled out at 298 in the second innings.

Starc's brilliant start in South Africa has highlighted the gulf between the two teams.

So, South Africa fallen behind considering the first innings and in the second innings Australia scored 227 runs in 74.4 overs.

The situation is tailor-made for Australia's spin king Lyon, who will be salivating at the prospect of the rough and uneven bounce starting to characterise the Kingsmead surface. "This", he said, pointing to his new moustache, "is the only thing they had that we didn't". I've seen David a lot more animated than that.

"We were certainly very chirpy out in the field". Mitchell Starc took three wickets in five balls to have South Africa nine down.

"When it's reversing like that he's the best in the world", Marsh said.

As a bowling group there were periods when we weren't at our best.

SA are on a precarious 293/9, making the 124 runs academic but subjecting their visitors to a night of restless sleep they could have avoided if Nathan Lyon and Steven Smith had removed Quinton de Kock and Morné Morkel in what looked like the twilight stage of a day-night Test.

It follows the run out-dismissal of AB de Villiers, where Lyon dropped the ball hitting de Villiers on the chest as he lay on the ground after diving in an attempt to make it to the crease at the bowlers end. The 27 runs added by last four wickets (seventh to tenth) is the lowest for South Africa in any Test since readmission and their third lowest ever.

"I'm sure some guys were worrying, no doubt". It was a big deflection and Paine did really well to hold onto it.

If reverse swing becomes a significant factor then the Proteas will look to pace prodigy Kagiso Rabada to make the most of this movement.

South Africa may be doomed to defeat in the first Test against Australia but opening batsman Aiden Markram said after a career-defining century that his team's hopes had been raised for the rest of the four-match series.

He led by example tremendously on Sunday, although was deflated by his departure.

Starc gets wickets with the new ball, Hazlewood, Cummins and Lyon control the middle period, while the tall left-arm quick comes back once again, in the end, to mop up the tail.
