(Cricket) South Africa frustrate Aussies
(03-05 18:55)

AB de Villiers continued to stonewall Australia as South Africa went to lunch on 122 for 5 wickets on day five of the third cricket test at Newlands in South Africa. They have a chance of holding out for the draw.
De Villiers batted through an extended morning session, advancing his score to 39 not out from 214 deliveries as he shelved his attacking instincts entirely.
South Africa's intent to settle for the draw and not chase a target of 511 to win was obvious, as it scored just 51 runs in 39 overs on the fifth morning.
Nightwatchman Kyle Abbott was the only batsman to fall after he batted almost two hours for 7. –AP
