Faf du Plessis (c), Hashim Amla, Aiden Markram, Theunis de Bruyn, AB de Villiers, Morne Morkel, Vernon Philander, Dean Elgar, Quinton de Kock (wk), Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj

Australia’s batting mainly depends on skipper Steve Smith, openers David Warner and Cameron Bancroft and middle-order batsmen Shaun and Mitchell Marsh. Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon and Josh Hazlewood did quite well with the ball.
AB De Villiers, Aiden Markram and wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock were the only batsmen who kept a check on Australian bowlers while Keshav Maharaj, Vernon Philander, Kagiso Rabada and Morne Morkel did the job with the ball.
After a high-tension and brawl-full test match, both the teams will reload again at St George’s Park tomorrow for the second game. Australia completely outshined the hosts in the previous game and would be looking to do the same in this as well. On the other hand, after losing by 118 runs, Africa would like to make a comeback and level the 4-match series by 1-1. However, after seeing the first match’s performance, Australia surely looks better than South Africa.
