Aussies collapse against South Africa after Steyn spell

SOUTH Africa has beaten Australia by 231 runs after the tourists suffered a devastating collapse after tea on the fourth day of the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

Spinner Dean Elgar trapped Nathan Lyon LBW with just two balls remaining in the day to seal the result, after Dale Steyn tore through Australia's middle order.

Steyn produced a deadly spell of fast bowling, taking the wickets of Michael Clarke, Steve Smith and Brad Haddin in quick succession,

South Africa declared midway through the first session, leaving Australia 448 runs to win after Hashim Amla (127*) completed a fine century.

Australia started well, reaching 100 without the loss of a wicket as David Warner and Chris Rogers batted with style and aplomb.

Warner fell to man-of-the-match JP Duminy shortly before tea for 66, with Australia 1 for 141.
