Travis Head looks invincible. I will soon be history at this rate. 87th over: Australia 367-3 (Head 36, Carey 2) The TV blokes spend their time reminiscing about the time Just Langer (“Jayell”) put England to the sword in 2002, so uneventful is the action unfolding in front of them. Ricky Ponting (“Punner”) casts his eyes pitchward to observe Alex Carey has new stickers on his bat and branding on his gloves.
This one is short and wide and allows Head to spank three through extra cover. It just isn’t good enough for a bowler of his quality, and must drive his captain mad. By delivery six Rabada’s up to speed, making Head hop and fend at the crease, but that only serves to reinforce the sense of frustration. 88th over: Australia 368-3 (Head 37, Carey 2) Not a thriller of an over from MJ. In fact, you could say it was bad. Australia, with two batters retired hurt, are pleased it was not dangerous.
Bowlers from both sides had a field day in both innings but in the end what mattered was, who batted better and South Africa batters will have to pull up their socks and hope to end the year on a high. Defending 35 in the fourth innings, the Proteas died trying as their lead bowler Kagiso Rabada destroyed the hosts' famed batting line-up and took four wickets. Eventually, the target proved to be too less. A lot was said about the pitch from both sides but with a gap of more than a week, the focus might have been shifted completely to winning the second Test, more so for the visitors with a WTC final place and series on the line.

But that doesn’t scratch the surface of David Warner’s remarkable performance. He advanced quickly to 50, then battled to an emotional century, before bludgeoning his way to 150 and an agonising double-ton. The occasion of his 200th run brought about a guttural roar as he sank to his knees, a yell that signified not only the vanquishing of his own poor form – and the critics of it – but of actual agony. Wracked with cramps that rendered him barely able to leave the field of play, the Australian opener retired hurt on 200* in his 100th Test.
The lead is north of 140, so it matters little in the match, but it adds a frisson of excitement to the final hour of play, especially with the new ball due shortly. In less interesting news, Maharaj now has figures of 0/98 from his 24 unbroken overs. Warner retired hurt 200 (Australia 329-3)Warner can take no more punishment and is helped off the field by the physio and the 12th man. He can hardly walk. It has been extraordinarily hot in Melbourne today, and Warner is clearly exhausted. I will presume for now that he is retired hurt, not retired out, but I shall update accordingly. 200s at the @MCG for AUS1937 - Don Bradman1953 - Neil Harvey1966 - Bob Cowper1968 - Bill Lawry1983 - Graham Yallop2002 - Justin Langer2003 - Ricky Ponting2022 - DAVID WARNER @CricketAus #AUSvSA— Swamp (@sirswampthing) December 27, 2022 Warner is now receiving treatment for cramp and dehydration.
Every time a South African comes to the crease, they average only 14. 33, with Kyle Verreynne their top performer, averaging 37. 25. Australia meanwhile have 5 batters averaging over 40 this series, and overall each Australian batter averages 38. If it's a slow and turning pitch, the batters will have an even tougher time out in the middle.
Out come the medicos to patch up the big fella. Australia’s doctors have been busy this Test, dealing first with Starc’s finger, then Warner’s cramps. On that subject, confirmation has come through that Warner will not bat again today, but he should be ok to go again tomorrow once the cramps have subsided. 42, 614 at the G today. 84th over: Australia 362-3 (Head 34, Green 6) Lovely off drive from Green, capitalising on Jansen searching for swing with a full length. He didn’t try to overhit it, held his shape, and looked a million or three bucks in the process.
That is despite being knocked off his feet by the Fox Sports camera earlier in the day. 80th over: Australia 344-3 (Head 22, Green 0) Another over, another Travis Head off-side slash for four. Maharaj completes his dirty work and the new ball can be taken. That was a dreadful couple of hours for South Africa. Can they restore some pride late in the day? And it doesn't sit well that the broadcast is continually interrupted with adverts for the SA20.
He can barely move. Photograph: Daniel Pockett/CA/Cricket Australia/Getty Images200 to David Warner77th over: Australia 329-3 (Warner 200, Head 7) Of course, after that wicket-taking over Nortje is whipped out of the attack. Presumably this is to ensure he is fresh for the soon-to-be-taken new ball; but still. Ngidi returns, the man mountain bowling with all the alacrity of sponge, offers no threat whatsoever as Warner rotates the strike and Head crunches a steadying cover drive for four.
Finally something of note, getting the ball to lift off a length and catch the shoulder of Warner’s bat – but the result is four runs down to third, provoking an animated and emotional celebration from the double-centurion. Warner drops to his knees, removes his helmet, and pumps his bat to the sky while a primal scream pours from the depths of his lungs. What a mighty effort this has been. A career-defining innings when that career was all-but written off. 3+ Test double centuries for 🇦🇺12DG Bradman6RT Ponting4GS ChappellMJ ClarkeSPD Smith3JL LangerRB SimpsonDA #Warner#AUSvsSA— Joshua Kay (@js_kay) December 27, 2022 76th over: Australia 319-3 (Warner 195, Head 2) Maharaj continues into the 23rd over of his spell, only now venturing around the wicket to the left-handed Warner.
90th over: Australia 377-3 (Head 44, Carey 4) Ngidi does only last one delivery, limping from the field to attend to his cramp. Maharaj completes the formalities, and Head looks in charitable mood, dabbing away a series of nude nuts, until he cannot help but swing a leg-stump half-volley away for four. That reminded me of the time our labrador nicked a whole joint of roast pork. We tried to prise it from his jaws. He looked apologetic.

The lanky leftie doesn’t start smartly though, dropping a half-volley on Head’s pads, allowing the in-form Australian room to swing with his arc and deposit a six over square-leg. The follow-up is better though, Jansen slipping a ripper past Head’s grope. The No 5 is unperturbed, clipping another boundary – for four this time – over mid-on. Head has raced to 22 from 29 deliveries. 81st over: Australia 345-3 (Head 23, Green 0) Nortje is deservedly handed the new ball and he hurries up Head with a bumper then rips a jaffa past Green’s outside edge. South Africa have endured a miserable day, but the speedster can hold his head high.
I'm sure it's going to be a fun, and financially life-saving tournament for CSA, but in the midst of the Test team being ground down, it looks off. Everything in our cricket is wrong. — Firdose Moonda (@FirdoseM) December 27, 2022 79th over: Australia 339-3 (Head 17, Green 0) Head has played see-ball hit-ball all summer and that mantra continues, slashing at some width from Ngidi and earning consecutive off-side boundaries. Awful bowling; awful captaincy to remove Nortje two overs ago. 78th over: Australia 330-3 (Head 8, Green 0) In unexpected circumstances Australia now have two new batters at the crease.

But something primal was at play that was bigger than all of us. There was just no way that meat was ever being released from that dog’s clutches. 89. 1 over: Australia 372-3 (Head 40, Carey 4) Ngidi gets to put his body through one final burst before the close. Or maybe just one delivery as it happens because he hits the deck in his follow through and calls for help to deal with cramp in his right leg. Another long delay. Not that it matters much in the grand scheme of this match, or series, but we’re going to be about ten overs short of the 90 today. 89th over: Australia 372-3 (Head 40, Carey 3) Oh Kagiso Rabada, what are you playing at!? For the umpteenth time this series he begins a new spell with a rank bad ball.
