Aussie win over South Africa under a sledging cloud: 1st Test, Day 5 (Durban)

Vice Captain and perennial bad boy David Warner was on notice after an angry confrontation with Quinton de Kock boiled over to overshadow Australia's comprehensive 118-run win over South Africa.

To add to the Aussie woes, spinner Nathan Lyon was charged by the ICC over his drop-ball send-off of South Africa's AB de Villiers.

The Proteas needing 124 runs for a famous victory survived 22 balls before Josh Hazlewood (3-61) removed de Kock (83) to seal the win.

Australia 351 (M Marsh 96, Smith 56, Warner 51, Maharaj 5-123, Philander 3-59) and 227 (Bancroft 53, Maharaj 4-102, Morkel 3-47) beat South Africa 162 (de Villiers 71*, Starc 5-34) and 298 (Markram 143, de Kock 83, Starc 4-75, Hazlewood 3-61) by 118 runs.
