On Saturday JP Duminy and Dale Steyn opened the gate to the Aussie kraal, and yesterday Steyn chased the sheep out with 5/67 – limiting Captain Pout’s side to 247 runs.
And now the Proteas are on the brink of a historic series victory over the number one side in the game . . .
South Africa need another 153 runs, with ten wickets in hand and 90 overs in which to do it in after the bowlers – lead by Dale Steyn – came to the party yesterday and removed the last signs of resolve from the home side.
Steyn took 10/154 in the match, showing ample proof of his standing as the game’s best bowler in 2008.
The closest South Africa has come to a series victory over Oz in Oz was when Jack Cheetham’s young side surprisingly drew the five match series 2-2 in 1953.
