Cricket: S Africa humbled by wrist of Warne
The irresistible wrist spin bowling of Shane Warne and Michael Bevan yesterday brought an early conclusion for Australia on the final morning of the first Test with victory over South Africa by an innings and 196 runs.
South Africa, 302 behind on first innings, collapsed from their overnight 99 for 4 to 130 all out in just over an hour, losing the last five wickets for three runs in five overs. It was the first time South Africa had lost by an innings in 33 years.
Warne removed the remaining specialist batsmen, Jacques Kallis and Jonty Rhodes, to finish with 4 for 43 and Bevan polished off the rest of the innings for his tally of 4 for 32.
When the fifth-wicket pair Kallis and Rhodes resumed at the start of the day, they held firm for 10 overs until Rhodes was trapped leg before by Warne for eight. Shaun Pollock and Kallis were together for a further six overs before Warne bowled Kallis round his legs for the innings top score of 39, and from that point South Africa's destiny was sealed.
