As things stand now SA need to score at least 250 thereby giving them a
lead of about 340. At the very minimum they need 225.
Lets hope SA score about 240 or 250 between tea and close of day 4 (If
scoring is difficult on day 4 they could even settle for scoring around
220 in 80 overs. This would give them about 100 overs to bowl Australia
out and Australa going for about 310 for victory). However, if they can
score a little quicker and declare about an hour before close of play,
setting Australia around 340. It would then be a very exciting test
match. But conserving wickets is key in the morning session and they
should only go for quick runs after tea.
