Proteas takes control of second Test against Oz on second day
South Africa has taken the lead in the second Test against Australia on the second day after they reduced the visitors to 112 for four on Friday at Port Elizabeth, following their first innings' score of 423 boosted by centuries from JP Duminy and AB de Villiers.
Meanwhile, all-rounder Wayne Parnell, who is playing in his first Test in four years, and paceman Vernon Philander grabbed two wickets apiece, although wicketkeeper De Villiers dropped the catch of Australian opener David Warner, who was still there on 65 at the close of play with Nathan Lyon 12 not out.
According to Sport24, nightwatchman Lyon was also dropped by Duminy in the gully and received another let-off when South Africa failed to go to the television review after the umpire gave him not out when he edged a rising ball down the leg side straight to De Villiers.
Earlier, Duminy, who averaged 11 in his previous seven Test innings, answered his critics with 123, his third hundred off 199 balls, while De Villiers struck 116, his 19th century off 201 balls, the report added.
