Last weekend’s victory marked the first time since 1931 that a Test in Australia had been finished within two days. An incredible 19 wickets fell during a thrilling play on the second day in Brisbane. In-form Australian batsman Travis Head proved to be the main difference in the one-sided affair in Brisbane, scoring 92 runs with 13 fours and a six in the first innings.
However, Baggy Greens have a coming bowling dilemma in this encounter, as pace man Josh Hazlewood is back in contention after injury. This means selectors will need to choose between 31-year-old Scott Boland or fan favorite for this test.
Meanwhile, the tourists’ troubles lie with the batsmen, having made paltry aggregates of just 152 and 99 in the first two Test innings. The return is alarming and is the eighth time that South Africa have been dismissed from a total of less than 200 this year.
Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada at least showed plenty of appetite to fight back against the Proteas. He took four wickets in an explosive four-wicket spell last Sunday and is likely to be counted on in Melbourne for any change in his side’s fortunes.
