The first of the two wickets that South Africa managed to ensnare was down to a miscommunication between David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne in a bid to pinch an extra run on an overthrow. Even as Warner hesitated after covering the better part of the pitch on the second run, Labuschagne proceeded with his sprint and sacrificed his wicket. The Australia opener then ensured he carried the hosts, scoring a double ton in his 100th Test match.
Dreadful mix up for Australia and Labuschagne is run out! #AUSvSA pic.twitter.com/OlZs2boCnH
