Fiery Rabada rips through Australian batting

David Warner's half-century was a rare highlight for Australia on the opening day of the second Test

Match referee Jeff Crowe, who has had enough on his hands already in this series, walked onto the ground at the drinks break for a huddle with Dharmasena and fellow umpire S Ravi while the Australian team wondered what all the fuss was about.

"As a bowler you block out who you're bowling to but he's obviously an fantastic player", Mitch Marsh said of de Villiers, having trapped du Plessis and de Bruyn lbw.

Rabada added a fifth wicket in the same spell as Australia were bowled out for 243 after winning the toss and batting on a green-tinged pitch on an overcast day at St George's Park. When they took tea they had faced 66 overs.

Kagiso Rabada is out of the remainder of the Test series against Australia unless he can overturn a level two charge for physical contact with the touring captain Steven Smith on day one in Port Elizabeth.

He was originally scheduled to hear his fate after play on day two, but one of the standing umpires from Friday, New Zealander Chris Gaffaney, was not fit to sit in on the process due to health issues. "He's a big part of this bowling line-up".

That could lead to a recall of towering, retiring quick Morne Morkel - which, in turn, could result in middle order batsman Theunis de Bruyn falling by the wayside.

"Australia bowled pretty well the whole session, we were trying to be as positive as possible, but there were not a lot of loose balls on offer", Amla said.

Fiery Rabada rips through Australian batting

"The wicket felt like it had a little bit in it all day and they batted especially well in the second session". The perfectly-flighted delivery dropped just short of the South African star's bat and whizzed past him to collect his off stump. All some people would have wanted was an escape, and de Villiers provided it.

Rabada's knock of 29 ended on day two of the second Test, when he played on to Pat Cummins.

Australia opened up the off side to him when they got Hazlewood to bowl around the wicket, with a short leg and leg gully in place, and de Villiers cut through gully. No one except AB de Villiers who, quite simply, has been the best batsman to stand on this wicket the past two days - and that includes the world's top-ranked batsman.

Sutherland's message, however, hadn't been digested by the Australian players.

IT was anything but pretty, but Dean Elgar's epic 197-ball stay at the crease was at least a masterpiece in perseverance.

Only 43 runs were scored in 26 overs between lunch and tea after a slightly less pedestrian morning during which 71 runs were scored in 28 overs. In the match, Australia won by 118 runs and so, they are now leading the series by 1 - 0 game. "There is a fine line about whether you celebrate too hard".

Rabada went on to take a further four wickets after seeing off Smith, ending the innings with figures of 5-96.
