Perth:

Faf du Plessis remained unbeaten on 78 when South Africa was dismissed for 225 by Australia late Friday on the first day of the third cricket test.

Du Plessis shared crucial partnerships of 57 with Robin Peterson (31) and 64 with Vernon Philander (28) to lift South Africa from 75-6 to 198-8 in another composed, defiant innings.

The 28-year-old du Plessis scored 78 in his first test knock last week and added an unbeaten 110 in his second on Monday, when he batted through the day to save the second test and win man-of-the-match honors at Adelaide.

Australia's new-look bowling attack shared the wickets, with Nathan Lyon taking 3-41 and Mitch Starc and Mitchell Johnson chiming in with two wickets apiece.
