The honours may well be even after a tightly contested first day of the second Test, as South Africa finished 5 for 214 at stumps.
South Africa looked in trouble early after winning the toss and batting, as Australia’s opening bowlers accounted for Graeme Smith and Hashim Amla early.
A dogged 83 by recalled Dean Elgar went some way towards keeping South Africa in the hunt, but he fell in the pursuit of runs.
A couple of late wickets to spinners Nathan Lyon and Steve Smith perhaps put Australia in the ascendency at the end of the day, but it will be all to play for on day two.
