South Africa has finally declared in the fourth Test, leaving Australia with an insurmountable victory target of 612 after they dismantled the tourists' demoralised and depleted attack in Johannesburg.
Morne Morkel took two wickets to restrict Australia to 88 for three at the close on the fourth day of the final Test as South Africa marched towards an emphatic victory. Having set Australia 612 for a win that would level the series, the home side removed the tourists’ top three batsmen – despite injury concerns over their pace trio which delayed South Africa’s declaration until tea.

Australia has three sessions left in the series for one of its batsmen to make a century or become the first baggy green side in 48 years to go an entire series without a player reaching triple figures.
