The South African cricket team is not having a great tour to Australia so far as they have lost the first game of the series. The second game between the two teams have been started. The game is been played at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
There was only one change made in the teams which came from the away side (South Africa). Theunis de Bruyn joined the starting XI for South Africa in this Test match. It was an amazing toss to win for Australian cricket team as they opt to bowl first.
Australia dismissed 4 batter in the very first session of day 1. South Africa was in big trouble as they were 67/5 in the second session. But the lower order batters Marco Jansen and Verreynne finished the session 2 on a good note for South Africa.
These batters helped the visitors to get their score past 150 runs. At one point, 100 was also not looking possible the way South Africa were losing wickets. Both Jansen and Verreynne are close to their half-centuries and they can lead South Africa to a good total in their first innings.
