South African continued their dismal form in the current series. They lost the first test against Australia after losing ODI and t20 series against India. One more aspect is making the Series more interesting, Its the banter between David Warner and Quinton De Kock. both of them are receiving support from their respective teams. David Warner has always had temperament issues, but  he has been clean over the last two years. End of the day both the players are fined. Warner is just one level from receiving a Ban.

Rabada pick up fifer

Rabada picked up a five wicket haul in the first innings of second test. With help of his spell  Australia were restricted to 244. He also received  a two match ban on his physical contact with steve smith during the play. Which means he will not be available for the last two tests of the sereis.  Ngidi and Philander assisted him by taking two and three wickets respectively. Spinners Keshav maharaj and Deam Elgar couldnt pick any wickets. By which we can say pitch is pace friendly wicket. David Warner was the highest scorer in Australian innings. He is the only player in Aussie line up to surpass 50. Aussies opted to bat after winning the toss
