South Africa has reached 4 for 77 at stumps on Day Four of the second test against Australia, chasing 430 runs for victory.

Australia declared at 8 for 267 in its second innings, setting the Proteas a difficult target to reach with just under five sessions of batting to survive.

The South African run chase got off to an unhappy start, with captain Graeme Smith being caught in slips for 0.

Earlier in the day, Michael Hussey notched up a valuable 54 runs for Australia before being caught off a mistimed pull shot.

Australian captain Michael Clarke couldn't repeat his first innings double-century, going out LBW for 38.

Morne Morkel was the pick of South Africa's bowlers on the fourth day, taking two wickets for the morning.
