KXIP vs KKR Live Score

You're talking about abuse of various players and their families. Two Cricket South Africa officials, Clive Eksteen and Altaaf Kazi, have been suspended by the home board after allowing fans wearing the masks to be admitted to St George's Park in Port Elizabeth and then posing with them for a photograph.

"It's a special feeling, especially as I'm the world record holder for the most (wickets denied by) no-balls", said Morkel, who took three of the first four Australian wickets to reach the milestone.

As Warner walked off the field, a comment from a fan seemed to stop him in his tracks.

Later reports indicated the spectator was ejected from Cape Town, where rowdy fans once again attempted to get under the tourists' skin, much to the annoyance of Lehmann.

Lehmann said he had never seen abuse about players' families like it.

"You can have your banter, but they have gone too far here".

"We have lodged a complaint".

"Nathan played very well".

The belligerent left-hander hit Rabada for four fours and a six in the space of five balls, but the next delivery was the flawless riposte, a thunderbolt that pitched on off stump and straightened to send the stump cartwheeling backwards.

Rabada had the last laugh, though, sending Warner's off stump cartwheeling away after a terrific ball.

Morkel, who is retiring from global cricket after the series, took three of the first four Australia wickets to fall and became the fifth South Africa player to join the 300 club.

Opener Aiden Markram's 84 had earlier included a mixture of fine stroke-play and luck.

Morkel (3-43) reached his landmark 20 minutes before tea when Shaun Marsh (26) slashed at a wide delivery and was comfortably caught by wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock.

Australia had missed a chance to get Markram in the first over of the innings when his thick edge off Mitchell Starc flew to gully, were Usman Khawaja failed to cling on to a one-handed attempt.

Paine offered stubborn resistance. Rabada took his fourth of the innings by dismissing Josh Hazlewood and Australia were all for 255.

Earlier, South Africa resumed at 8-266 and aiming for a total of above 300.

Smith, who held a world record-equalling five catches in the first innings, had already added to his tally by catching first innings century-maker Dean Elgar (14) off Pat Cummins (2/47).

A remarkable feature of the day was the two ninth-wicket partnerships that made a considerable impact on the play.

Morne Morkel hit a four before falling in identical fashion four balls later.

But, Lyon's late counter-attacking display along with Paine's determined knock have eaten into that South African lead ahead of a pivotal day three.
