Marsh had a let-off on 19 when a yorker from Kagiso Rabada struck him low down and would have hit his leg stump, according to television replays. Umpire Kumar Dharmasena gave him not out. South Africa had used up both of their reviews -– also involving leg before wicket decisions by Dharmasena -– and could not challenge. South African hopes of pressing home their advantage were foiled by Mitchell Marsh and Tim Paine, who added an unbeaten 48 before the umpires took the players off the field.
Australia 5 wickets down now thanks to Keshav Maharaj who's got his 2nd wicket and AB de Villiers who's taken his 3rd catch of the day. Score now is 177/5 after 59.1 ovs. #ProteaFire #SAvAUS pic.twitter.com/LssJ0XUqKb— Cricket South Africa (@OfficialCSA) March 1, 2018
The home side claimed two early wickets, having Cameron Bancroft and Usman Khawaja caught behind, but Warner and Smith batted brightly before Philander came back into the attack just prior to lunch and had Warner caught by De Villiers at second slip. Warner faced 79 balls and hit six fours.
Those wasted reviews have cost South Africa, Rabada raps Shaun Marsh on the pad, the umpire says 'not out' and the Proteas have no reviews left. DRS shows the ball was thudding into leg stump. Australia 147-3.— Sky Sports Cricket (@SkyCricket) March 1, 2018
