AUS vs SA: Rain spoiled the game on the third day, wait for Usman Khawaja’s double century continues.
On Friday, the third day of the third and final Test between the Australian cricket team and the South Africa cricket team got rained.
Not a single ball could be bowled in the entire day. This has dealt a blow to Australia’s chances of a clean sweep over South Africa. With this, the wait for Usman Khawaja’s double century continues.
The third Test between Australia and South Africa was marred by hiccups right from the start.
Only 47 overs could be played on the first day of the third Test, while the match was stopped early due to rain on the second day.
