South Africa had torn through Australia’s batsmen with five wickets after tea on day three, but their faint hopes dimmed when Clarke and Hussey dug in for 62 runs in the morning.

Clarke, on a pair of double-centuries, was eventually trapped in front by Dale Steyn for 38, while Hussey added a 54 to his first innings 103 before he skied a simple catch to the paceman just before lunch.
