Australia continued their brilliant start to the year against England after demolishing South Africa in their own backyard. They would be looking to continue their winning streak entering the second game. Michael Clarke has already expressed his criticism over the pitch in Port Elizabeth and saying that this Test may only last three days. The likely Australian squad will include: 1 Chris Rogers, 2 David Warner, 3 Alex Doolan, 4 Shaun Marsh, 5 Michael Clarke (capt), 6 Steven Smith, 7 Brad Haddin (wk), 8 Mitchell Johnson, 9 Ryan Harris, 10 Peter Siddle, 11 Nathan Lyon.
Apart from Dale Steyn and AB de Villiers, the Australians were all over the rest of the South African team. Graeme Smith was dismissed by Mitchell Johnson twice but still stated after the game that it was the influence of the pitch and not Johnson’s bowling that has made the South Africans look disastrous. The hosts would be looking to come out of this shock at the earliest and try to grab a victory this time to break the chains. The probable South African lineup will include: 1 Graeme Smith (capt), 2 Alviro Petersen, 3 Hashim Amla 4 Faf du Plessis, 5 AB de Villiers (wk), 6 JP Duminy, 7 Wayne Parnell / Dean Elgar, 8 Robin Peterson, 9 Vernon Philander, 10 Dale Steyn, 11 Morne Morkel.
