Having lost four Tests on trot, Australia have hit the rock bottom. They registered their lowest score against South Africa at home, third lowest overall while lowest at Hobart. Winning the toss on Day One, Faf du Plessis opted to bowl as Vernon Philander started Australia’s miseries. David Warner was the first to go playing at a wide delivery and after that there was no looking back for the Proteas. Australia’s only hope was captain Steven Smith who remained unbeaten on 48 whereas no one else contributed.

Philander took a five-for while Kyle Abbott and Kagiso Rabada wreaked havoc from other end. Coming out to bat, Proteas started off well but crumbled a bit to end day at 171 for 5 with Quinton de Kock at 28* and Temba Bavuma not out at 38. Still, South Africa should be beaming in confidence and if they can play the first session of Day Two without losing many wickets, they will fancy a big lead.
