Because the cricinfo commentators are idiots:

87.6 Lyon to Philander, no run, short of a length and spinning into and bouncing at the mid-riff. Cops it on the pad as he looks to glance

Hawkeye had it hitting the top of the stumps on an umps call but it was exactly the same length as the peach that got de Kock out (which as you know flicked the top of the stumps).

Oui, and de Villiers said they wouldn't want to be chasing too many more than that. He thinks that if the lead if just over 100, it's defendable too.

BTW, on the band, Gideon Haigh said the umps had no right to tell the band to shut up and he also alluded to the fact that these two umps are two of the worst in the business.

Umps call is still the grey area of decisions. Whether or not an umpire gives something out can determine the course of reviews.

If Starc and Cummins can back up Marsh and Paine, we could still set a significant target. Even Haze and Lyon made valuable runs in the first dig.

Chappelli thinks that there is not much in the shoulder brush between Smith and Rabada and that under the old rules the former would have been heading for the pavilion, not a review consideration.

Alas, your calls have been decidedly dodgy so far in this Test. Cool

I predicted that Saffer wickets would fall after tea following the Amla and Elgar grind. Must admit though didn't expect ABDV to go nuts.

Rabada will challenge him for MOTM if they win though.

After only 28 Test matches, Rabada has now taken more 10 wicket hauls then, J Anderson (134 matches), C Walsh (132), G McGrath (124), S Broad (114), C Ambrose (98), M Johnson (73) and A Donald (72)

The last wicket partnership was productive again, but Starc and Cummins were disappointing. Marsh got a pretty good ball early.

Poor shot from Amla, almost as listless as the piece of Mitch Marsh fielding a few minutes ago.

Six wickets in the end so a decent total would have challenged them.

Rabada MOTM.

Gibson thinks ABDV is a genius though. When interviewed he also alluded to selection issues etc.

He thinks that de Villiers makes the runs when they're important, not just for the sake of them. He mentioned how that was the attitude of Sobers.

Rabada will be a loss though. Gibson is devastated that he might be missing for what he considers are trivial incidents.

Wonder if Marsh is in trouble for calling Rabada and effing cee.

Nicholarse is in love with Kg it seems.

Great win to the Yarps. Even they could not choke on that target.

Poor effort from the tail, though Rabada was again convincing. Thought Vern also bowled well..

So Cape Town next in the bring your own water Test. Would be nice to see Steyn return.

Oz has performed better to date than I thought, but the Yarps are a live chance to win their first Test series at home v Oz.

I expect there will be no changes to the Oz team.

Been listening to Gerard W on SEN....the commentary isn't bad but the ads perhaps unsurprisingly are a right royal pain.....that kid whining at his Dad for driving too fast, who got rolled out every two overs, really desperately needs a good drowning.
