Aiden Markram and AB de Villiers were threatening to take the scorecard well beyond Australia’s reach in the first day itself but the embattled visitors pulled back well during the final overs of the first day. Markram departed after scoring a majestic 152 and shared a 105-run stand with De Villiers. South Africa then lost Du Plessis to some shrewd bowling from Pat Cummins but De Villiers soldiered on. Temba Bavuma finally found his feet and stuck on but De Villiers eventually fell to debutante Chadd Sayers after making 69. South Africa were 313/6 at the end of Day 1 with Bavuma and Quinton de Kock in the middle. Pat Cummins was the pick of the bowlers for Australia ending the day with 3/53 off 19 overs.
