Adelaide: Nov 23, 2012

Australia will aim to put up a huge first innings total, when they resume at 482 for five on the second day of the Adelaide Test against South Africa on Friday.

On the opening day, Michael Clarke posted a successive double century and David Warner and Michael Hussey unleashed whirlwind hundreds as Australia pummelled a demoralised South Africa in the second Test.

Clarke backed up his unbeaten double century from last week’s drawn Brisbane series-opener with another overpowering innings, becoming the first person in the history of Test cricket to post four 200s in a calendar year.

Warner and Hussey compounded the misery for the Proteas with quickfire tons as Australia romped to 482 for five on the opening day at Adelaide.

It was just the fifth time in all Tests that Australia have scored more than 400 runs in a day’s play.

Brief Scores: Australia 482 for 5 (Michael Clarke 224*, David Warner 119, Michael Hussey 103; Jacques Kallis 2 for 19, Morne Morkel 2 for 128) vs South Africa
