Of course, not the kind of hard day their old-look batting order has been having this week.

Australia made four changes from the last Test, replacing the banned trio with Joe Burns, Matt Renshaw and Handscombe.

Australia took the second new ball in the final half hour before the close, and Sayers got his first Test wicket when De Villiers edged behind, with the decision upheld on review. As low points go, that is stratospheric. They batted on, and on, and on, and posted 488, the highest total made in a Test at the Wanderers since 2003.

Australia's top order was nearly unrecognisable from the corresponding group in Cape Town. Back then, neither Rogers nor Watson made it to 20 in the first innings; here, neither Burns nor Renshaw made double figures.

The pair put on 52 for the fourth wicket, but Khawaja was superbly caught by De Kock having got a feather-edge down the leg-side to give Philander his third. Both Burns and Renshaw had been batting in Brisbane on Tuesday, rushed to South Africa, and were in the Test team by Friday, and if that was ideal preparation for a Test then everyone would do it.

Fast bowler Pat Cummins finished with 5-83 for Australia.

"Big Vern" has bowled well all series without too much reward, but he had two in two balls when he got Renshaw (8) caught behind before bowling Peter Handscomb for a first-ball duck as the Aussie No 4 tried to leave, but played on to his stumps. Handscomb simply shook his head in disbelief. On the other hand, the South Africans had an opportunity to turn over the visitors for the maiden time in the Rainbow nation.

In response, Australia looked crippled at 6-110, with only Usman Khawaja (53) offering genuine resistence to the hosts' pace and spin attack.

But unfortunately for the elegant left-hander his stay was cut short by a brilliant catch by de Kock, who crabbed down the leg-side to take Khawaja's glance off Philander whilst up to the stumps.

Rabada, Vernon Philander and Maharaj picked up three wickets each while Morne Morkel, playing in his final game for the Proteas, took the scalp of Mitchell Marsh late on day two.

Resuming at 313 for six on a dark, gloomy morning, Bavuma and De Kock had to weather some challenging bowling from Pat Cummins and Chadd Sayers, armed with a ball which was only eight overs old at the start of play.

A career-best 45 from Keshav Maharaj added another 76 for the ninth wicket as South Africa's tail wagged, but his stay was ended when he edged Cummins to wicketkeeper Paine. Cummins also found the boundary easily.

The in-form batsman continued as tormentor-in-chief in the afternoon, classily negotiating the pacemen and carefully seeing off Lyon's threat, with the majority of his runs coming square on each side of the pitch. Australia's cricket reputation was torn apart as details emerged of the three players' plot to cheat by roughing up the ball with a piece of sandpaper hidden in a pocket, and their lying to cover up some of the details.
