Australia s South Africa 1st Test Scorecard Result Nov 3-7, 2016 at Perth

Australia vs South Africa 1st Test results, as South Africa defeat Australia by 177 runs. South Africa has taken a 1-0 series lead after eventually disposing of Australia for 361 on the final day to win the first Test by 177 runs. Here’s how the miserable day played out for Australia.

South Africa 242 (de Kock 84, Bavuma 51, Starc 4-71, Hazlewood 3-70) and 8 for 540 dec (Duminy 141, Elgar 127, Philander 73, de Kock 64) beat Australia 244 (Warner 97, S Marsh 63, Philander 4-56, Maharaj 3-56) and 361 (Khawaja 97, Nevill 60*, Rabada 5-92) by 177 runs.Scorecard and ball-by-ball details.

Proteas quick Kagiso Rabada enhanced his already glowing reputation as a future superstar of cricket by taking a five wicket hall — including the wickets Shaun Marsh, Steve Smith, Adam Voges and Mitchell Marsh — with figures of 5/92 from 31 overs.

However, once Rabada appeared to tire with the South African side playing a bowler down after Dale Steyn’s shoulder injury, the tourists began to struggle to force breakthroughs and the Australian tail was able to strike several partnerships.

After Usman Khawaja was dismissed for 97 runs, keeper Peter Nevill guided the Aussie tail in a stubborn resistance that clearly frustrated South Africa in the field.

Rabada was named man of the match for his seven wickets across both innings. When Dale Steyn walked off the field clutching his broken right shoulder on Friday, you had to wonder if South Africa would remain competitive. It was not yet lunch on day two, and Australia were 1 for 166 in reply to 242. Already the visitors were without their captain and best batsman AB de Villiers, who did not make this tour due to injury. Now 417 Test wickets were leaving the field, not to return in this series. What could South Africa possibly do from there,.

Kagiso Rabada, quick launcher 21-year-old who, during the past year, Steyn has symbolically passed the pace of South Africa. Here, Rabada simply fled with him, destroying Australia in the second innings with pace, bounce, sewing, conventional swing, back swing, searing yorkers, and the ability to target the cracks in the pitch. In short, almost all the weapons that make a fast player is dangerous. He finished with 5 for 92 and seven wickets in the test.

But I had a lot of help. Vernon Philander, the most experienced player in the absence of Steyn, led in the first innings with 4 for 56, and added one more in the second. He also hit an invaluable 73 with the bat. Keshav Maharaj, the only spinner who made his debut test at the WACA, was precise and tight, claimed three shifts of first entry and farewell party before tea on day five. Dean Elgar, JP Duminy and Quinton de Kock led with the bat.

And then there was Temba Bavuma, that could not be kept out of action. Having scored a half century of struggle in the first entries – remember, South Africa was 4 for 32 the first day, then 5 to 81 – Bavuma produced one of the great times of all time on the fourth day to end any David Warner hope of saving Australia. When asked to Bowl to give men a break strike in five days, Bavuma first ball hit a crack and Usman Khawaja have had lbw for 84 if it had not exceeded.
