Full and outside off, Quinton looks to play against the line but is defeated by the away turn. Gets a leading edge which is calmly taken by Mitchell Starc at backward point. Got carried away a touch, did QdK. Now, into the soft underbelly of that middle order. Will that stand up today?

Interesting. Once being touted as a phenomenal leggie for the future, has come on to bowl. Who is it? Who is it? It is a man known for his exploits with the bat these days. Steve Smith into the attack.
DRINKS BREAK. A terrific start from the Proteas after opting to bat first. They have made excellent use of the pitch and the Aussies have sprayed the ball all around the park. One solace for the Men In Yellow is that, a soft underbelly of a middle order awaits. Nathan Lyon is bowling beautifully but the others are just struggling to find any rhythm. Has that 6-day break made the Kangaroos rusty?

15.2 overs (0 Run) Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat.
15.1 overs (0 Run) Tossed up on the stumps, the ideal delivery to play the cut. De Kock goes for it but can only get it off the outside half to covers.
