Rabada is the Man of the Match

du Plessis: It is never too easy with two seamers. To run in for 31 overs, KG was phenomenal on a deck which was still good to bat. We were very disappointed after the first day. We were determined to come back. There were a lot of guys putting their hands up. He [Keshav Maharaj] had a job today. Obviously did not get the rewards that he deserved but he was awesome. Bowled good lines and made sure that the scoreboard never moved too quickly for the Aussies.
Smith: Disappointing. We were in a reasonable position after the first day. We could not capitalise on that. Credit to the way Duminy and Elgar played. They took the game away from us. It was difficult to come back from there. We have had a few collapses in Test cricket. We will try and get our best performance. We will have to play quaility cricket against a good South African side in Hobart. We got to turn around quickly.
