Hashim Amla and Neil McKenzie put together an unbeaten 60 run partnership as the Proteas reached the close on 62 for one after the fourth day of the third Test against <?xml:namespace prefix="st1" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags"?><country-region w:st="on"><place w:st="on">Australia</country-region> at the SCG.<?xml:namespace prefix="o" ns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office"?>

In the absence of Graeme Smith, the team took a gamble by opening with Morne Morkel, but it did not pay off.

He was out in only the second over for a duck handing Doug Bollinger his first Test wicket.

Earlier, <country-region w:st="on">Australia</country-region> had declared their second innings closed on 257 for four to set <place w:st="on"><country-region w:st="on">South Africa</country-region> a sporting target of 376 runs for victory.

They were still 314 runs short, but as this series had proved anything could happen.
