PERTH: South Africa stunned Australia to win the first Test of three-match series at Perth by 177 against all the odds. Here are the day by day full highlights of the game.
After getting all out on just 242 in the first innings, and Australia going 158 without a wicket down, they came back phenomenally to get Kangaroos out for 243 and the piling up 540 runs for 8 wickets, was worth-watching stuff.
After a day and half of the first session on the second morning, it looked like Australia would run away with the match. Then, Dale Steyn went down to injury and everything turned around rather quickly.

Peter Nevill and Usman Khawaja were excellent in the second innings, but their rearguard effort was nowhere near enough. This surely will go down as one of South Africa’s best test win.
