South Africa fell in the opening innings of the first Test against Australia at the Gabba, with Nathan Lyon destroying the opposition and Mitchell Starc taking 299 Test wickets.

Pat Cummins won the toss and chose to bowl first on a very green track – a choice that paid off handsomely.

Australia bowled South Africa out for 152 before tea, with Starc (3-41) and Lyon (3-14) each getting three wickets, while Scott Boland (2-28) and Cummins (2-35) each took two. It’s the fifth-consecutive innings in which South Africa has been bowled out for less than 180.

Watch: Kagiso Rabada removes Warner off the first ball of the innings

In response, Australia is 1-9, with David Warner out on the opening ball of the hosts’ innings to Kagiso Rabada. It was Warner’s first golden duck in Test cricket since January 2013, and he now has a season average of 20.40.

Kagiso Rabada dug in a short ball and Warner fended it to short leg, where Khaya Zondo took a one-handed catch at full stretch.

Out of their last 5 Test matches this calendar year, the Pat Cummins-led Australian squad has won 4 times overall, including a stunning home series victory against the West Indies. On the other hand, South Africa would want to play extremely well in both the batting and bowling departments to threaten this formidable Australian Test team on their home ground.
