Last day of Test cricket for South Africa's greatest generation

South Africa's Dean Elgar plays a ball at the wicket on the second day of the second cricket test

Despite South Africa being the hosts, the fiery bowling attack of Australia which comprises of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon make them the favourites to topple the Proteas yet again.

Rabada had screamed in Smith's face and then made contact with a shoulder bump after dismissing the Australian skipper.

Warner was also heavily criticised for giving South Africa's Aiden Markram a huge verbal spray during the Durban test after the rookie opening batsman was culpable in having his team mate AB de Villiers run out.

"CA has reminded the team of the standards of behaviour expected of players representing Australia", Sutherland said.

Australia vice-captain David Warner says he will always stick up for his family after claiming a "vile and disgusting" remark about his wife by South Africa's Quinton de Kock led to their ugly altercation.

"I'm pleased with Davey that he stuck his hand up, said he made a mistake and he could handle things better", Smith said.

"I didn't think of it before the series", du Plessis said.

It could have been much worse, though, had Paine not physically restrained a furious Warner, who the visitors allege was provoked by De Kock's comment about the opener's wife.

The 21-year-old was picked ahead of the more experienced Morne Morkel in a surprise selection by the South Africans.

Rabada's 5/96 was influential in rolling Australia for an underwhelming 243 on day one.

Cricket Australia is understood to be furious with the conduct of Eksteen and Kazi, stunned that officials would be OK with the low-brow actions of supporters.

Following that, Warner was fined 75 per cent of his match fee by the International Cricket Council (ICC) while de Kock was fined 25 per cent of his match fee by match referee Jeff Crowe.

South Africa's Kagiso Rabada may miss rest of the matches of the Test series against Australia after he was hit with level two offence following his aggressive send-off of Australian captain Steve Smith on Friday. Smith opted to review the decision, but his hopes of getting the original decision overturned went in vain.

South Africa continued to claw their way back into the game after lunch as Usman Khawaja suffered the same fate as Bancroft, while Warner was clean bowled by Lungi Ngidi for 63, which came off 100 balls and included nine boundaries.

Rabada produced a fast delivery angled in to the stumps to strike Smith on the back pad. The second Test got underway on Friday.
