Elgar perishes after South Africa concede 386-run lead

Australia’s No.10 Mitchell Starc pulled a six off Anrich Nortje before copping another bouncer on his helmet. It led to a brief stoppage in play owing to the mandatory concussion protocol and captain Pat Cummins declared the innings, not keen on putting the tail-enders further in harm’s way. He had his opposite number strangled down the leg side for a duck to leave South Africa hoping for a miracle of biblical proportions to salvage the Boxing Day Test.
