Emphatic victory for South Africa | South Africa tour to Australia | 2nd Cricket Test Match, Hobart
A month prior, The South Africa Cricket team landed in Australia without their Captain and best batsman, AB de Villiers, who is at home suffering from an injury. They also lost their best bowler, Dale Steyn, to a genuine harm scarcely a day into the test battle. But then they have not just beaten Australia in the Test series, they have smashed them badly and even embarrassed them. The complete Ball by Ball Cricket match review along with Match Prediction is given here.
At the point when this Test series was being scheduled, South Africa were concerned that it may be chosen by a pink-ball, day-night Test in Adelaide. They require not have dreaded. In Hobart, they have demolished Australia by an innings and 80 races to take after their strong triumph in Perth, and in this manner have secured a third successive arrangement win in Australia. This was an aggregate demolition, Australia flopping even to take the Test to lunch on day four – with an entire day having been lost to rain.
Australian batsmen are just able to face only 558 deliveries throughout the test match. In this manner they have lost the test series very badly. Remember Australia also lost the series earlier in Sri Lanka where many of the records were broken. These records were not broken by Sri Lanka rather they were broken due to the bad batting performance by Australia.
Australia were collapsed for 85 in their first innings in Hobart. This started a horrible test match for them. Although the second day was completely washes out by rain still Australia were unable to save the test match.
South Africa score 326 runs in their first innings thanks to brilliant test match century by Q de Kock who score 104 runs with the help of 17 fours. Australia were once again bowled out for just 161 runs in second innings thus losing the test match by an innings and 80 runs on day four of the test match.
KA Abbott who took 9 wickets in the match was named man of the match. Overall it was a great test match for fast bowlers. Philander also took 5 wickets in the first innings for Australia while Hazlewood took 6 for Australia in their only innings as bowling side.
Smith after the match expressed his feeling by saying that he is really disappointed to be sit here. It was overall a bad batting performance batsmen. We have lost too many wickets in clumps. We lost 10 for 85 in first innings and once again lost 8 for 30 in second innings of the test match which is not acceptable.
P du Plessis on the other hand said that he want 3-0 to whitewash Australia. It’s a golden chance for South Africa to make history. He further said that its not easy for any side to beat Australia in home conditions. But it is a great performance from the whole team and the dream come true.
South Africa won the first test match quite comprehensively. Australia is not in good form of late. They are struggling with their batting line up. The match prediction was quite clear before the start of the second test match and as predicted South Africa won the match by an innings and 80 runs.
