Adelaide: Nov 22, 2012

Australia will take on the top-ranked team in the ICC Rankings in Test cricket, South Africa, in the second Test match at the Adelaide Oval starting Thursday.

The first Test match at the Gabba in Brisbane ended in a tame draw, with one full day of the match was washed out.

South Africa have made two changes for Thursday’s second Test against Australia in Adelaide, bringing in leg-spinner Imran Tahir and all-rounder Faf du Plessis, who will make his debut.

Tahir replaces paceman Rory Kleinveldt, who went wicketless in the drawn Brisbane Test, while Du Plessis plays in place of the injured JP Duminy.

Skipper Graeme Smith said Tahir would be the frontline spinner on an Adelaide Oval pitch expected to take wear as the match goes on.

Meanwhile, Australia have decided that they will continue sledging the South African players to gain an upper-hand in the competition when both teams take on each other on November 22 in the second Test match of the series.

Michael Hussey said the Australians would again adopt an aggressive approach in the Adelaide Test starting on Thursday, following the drawn series opener in Brisbane.

“It’s part of the game,” Hussey said. “Once you get out in the middle and emotions start to rise, it’s good for the game to see a bit of competitive spirit out there between the two teams.”  

Teams:
 
South Africa: Graeme Smith (c), Alviro Peterson, Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB de Villiers (wk), Jacques Rudolph, JP Duminy, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel, Rory Klienveldt
 
Australia: Ed Cowan, David Warner, Rob Quiney, Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke (c), Michael Hussey, Mathew Wade (wk), Nathan Lyon, Peter Siddle, James Pattinson, Ben Hilfenhaus
