Quinton de Kock century moves South Africa into strong position to wrap up series win over Australia in Hobart
Quinton de Kock's superb hundred put South Africa in firm command of the second Test against Australia.
The Proteas can wrap up an overseas series triumph in Hobart this week and De Kock's 104 from 143 balls, along with Temba Bavuma's stoic 74, gave the tourists a 241-run first-innings lead after they were all out for 326.
Kyle Abbott needed only four balls to make inroads into Australia's fragile batting line-up as Joe Burns was strangled down the legside, but Usman Khawaja's battling 56 not out lifted the hosts to 121 for two before bad light brought an early end to proceedings.
