Morkel takes South Africa closer to 3-1 series win after du Plessis's ton.

South Africa eyeing for a great series victory against Australia.
This was a magical day of Test cricket - and not in the mere figurative sense of the word. What sorcery was behind South Africa's amazing, never-ending innings, which kept going and going and going, defying all rational attempts at explanation? And how, from an attack crippled by injury, did South Africa conjure three dangerous fast bowlers by the close of play? Surely the average muggle will never understand the mysteries of day four in Johannesburg.
South Africa batted first and made 488 in their first innings and declared their second innings at 344 for 6. In reply, Australia made 221 in their first innings and were 88 for 3 at the end of the 4th day's play, still trailing by 524 runs. Australia need a herculean task to win or draw the match.
