So one of the most anticipated contest is underway as SA win the toss and chose to bowl in the first test @ Centurion.http://www.espncricinfo.com/south-africa-v-australia-2013-14/content/current/story/718109.htmlThe best of the pace should be on display in this series.Alex Doolan makes his debut for Aus after an impressive FC season. Shaun Marsh's selection comes a bit of a shocker.

There is no stopping Mitchell Johnson! He has become only the 6th player in test history to have picked up 6+ wickets in 6 consecutive matches. Australia have a lead 191 and they are 18/1 - lunch.

Quite an extraordinary scorecard. After 1,2 no batsmen has managed to score runs in double digits! Chances of rain tomorrow is at 90%. And as I type, Chris Rogers, the main man is run out. This is going to be exciting!
Forget the weather forecast. SA have snatched the last wicket and win comprehensively by 231 runs. What a comeback! What a team! Dale Steyn comes back with a stellar performance after a below par performance @ Centurion. All set for an absolute cracker at Cape town!

Wow! What a test match! Australia win by 245 runs but with only 4 and odd overs remaining. De Villiers started to dig in and every other batsmen followed up with it. In the end, Harris came back to dismiss Steyn and Morkel in the same over. Steyn decided to play with the hamstring, Philander with a battered arm. Amazing commitment and dedication shown by these guys. Bet no other team would have taken this game, this long. The margin Australia have won by doesn't really matter here. SA were able to dig in and gave Australia the Adelaide scare. Fantastic series! Well how about Ryan Harris! He has played with knees that needs surgery and goes under the knife now. These guys are amazing!
