Australia collapsed from 158/0 to 244/10 and manage only a two-run lead over South Africa on Day 2 of the first Test at the WACA. David Warner’s (97) wicket triggered the slide and Australia kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Shaun Marsh (63) was the other major contributor with the bat as only three other batsmen entered double-digits. For South Africa, Vernon Philander was the star performer with 4/56.

In reply, South Africa lost Stephen Cook and Hashim Amla quickly but the Aussies couldn’t continue with that momentum after JP Duminy and Dean Elgar steadied the ship for them. At close, South Africa were 104/2 and were in the lead by 102 runs.
