Rabada gets South Africa close to win

A fiery spell of fast bowling from Kagiso Rabada has put South Africa in a strong position against Australia, after an eventful opening day of the second test. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 7pm (AEDT).

There will be a hearing after play on day two of the second test in Port Elizabeth, with Rabada to miss the rest of the series unless the Proteas successfully have the charge downgraded.

One of the elements that livened up a slow day out in the middle, the brass band that has been a popular fixture at St George's Park for two decades, was asked to stop playing by umpires Kumar Dharmasena and Sundaram Ravi.

An uncharacteristically quiet David Warner and Cam Bancroft initially blunted the South African attack, before accelerating towards the end of the first session, as the ball started to lose its shine.

Australian cricket chief James Sutherland has demanded his players show more respect for their opponents in the wake of incidents that overshadowed the first Test against South Africa in Durban.

Amla was out for 56, opener Dean Elgar followed next over for 57, and allrounder Mitchell Marsh picked up two wickets as Australia's bowlers went on a run of four wickets for 28 runs after tea.

Scoring his third successive half-century of the series, Warner looked set for a special innings, while Bancroft - fresh of a fifty in his last innings - seemed every bit as assured as his batting partner.

Amla was twice given out lbw and twice overturned the decision using video review, surviving on 7 and 40. And two South African cricket officials face internal disciplinary procedures after they were photographed smiling with a group of fans who were wearing masks aimed at taunting Australia vice-captain Warner and his wife, who is with him on tour.

The home side have a narrow advantage of 20 runs with the brilliant De Villiers on 74 from 81 balls and all-rounder Vernon Philander to resume on 14 in the search for what could be crucial first innings runs in an engrossing contest. South Africa is in bat according to the latest news.

Rabada was the chief destroyer in the Australian first innings with 5-96, including a burst of 5-13 off 18 balls.

For South Africa Kagiso Rabada destroyed Australia innings by taking five wickets so far.

Quinton de Kock also fell victim to a sensational delivery from Nathan Lyon that turned sharply and reared off the deck, beating the outside edge and kissing the top of off stump.
