Mitchell Starc was pick of the bowlers for the hosts as the seamer returned with impressive figures of 4/71. For South Africa, Bavuma and Quinton de Kock chipped in with fighting fifties. Australia came out to bat with intent and David Warner breezed to a fifty off just forty balls. The hosts were comfortably placed at 105/0 when umpire signalled end of day’s play.
