Graeme Smith appears destined to be defeated in his final Test before retirement as Australia closed in on a series victory against South Africa.

The Proteas, chasing 511 for victory, were reduced to 71-4 in their second innings by the end of the fourth day.

Smith, who announced his imminent international retirement on Monday, scored three runs before being caught at short-leg off Mitchell Johnson.

It means South Africa, who are ranked number one in the world Test rankings, face a huge battle to avoid their first series defeat since losing to Australia at home in 2008.
