Losing Alviro Petersen to the bowling of Nathan Lyon in the hour after lunch when the opener failed to clear a neatly placed mid-on, the visitors maintained their sturdy progress against an Australian attack that reverted to more conservative tactics – seemingly in hope of waiting for the second new ball.
Joined by a fluent Jacques Kallis, Amla continued his serene progress, his only moments of discomfort arriving via a pair of cut shots at Lyon shortly before the interval, the first beating the edge, the second squirting between keeper and slip. More representative were a trio of princely cover drives from the bowling of James Pattinson, Ben Hilfenhaus and Lyon.
Apart from a brief spell either side of Graeme Smith’s pre-lunch wicket, in which Pattinson and Peter Siddle found the ideal length and line to cause discomfort, no batsman was unduly troubled by pace, Hilfenhaus lacking the incisiveness and variation on the bowling crease he showed last summer, despite tidy figures.
Their indifferent start seemed at least partly driven by nerves at facing up to the world’s top-ranked team at home. Hilfenhaus and Pattinson were too short and too straight in the early overs, allowing Smith and Petersen the chance to tuck several deliveries away to the leg side.

Michael Clarke has defended his decision to thrust the Test debutant Rob Quiney into No.3 against South Africa’s powerful pace attack, while Australia’s three most experienced batsmen will remain down the order. South Africa’s captain Graeme Smith is keen for his fast bowlers to exploit the lack of experience in Australia’s top order, with none of Ed Cowan, David Warner and Quiney having previously faced the South Africans in Test cricket.
Clarke said he had considered batting at first drop himself but was reluctant to alter the middle order that had such success against India last summer, when Ricky Ponting, Clarke and Michael Hussey batted at Nos. 4, 5 and 6. Quiney will be Australia’s fourth Test No.3 since Ponting moved down the order during last year’s tour of Sri Lanka, following Shaun Marsh, Usman Khawaja and Shane Watson.
Combined with the fact that Warner and Cowan, both of whom are still making their way in Test cricket, will open the innings, it leaves Australia potentially vulnerable against Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel, the best pace line-up in the world today. Clarke said although he could have promoted himself up the order to first drop, he believed Quiney was better suited to the role, given that he usually opens for Victoria.
One of the things both teams have been preparing for is chin music with bouncers certain to fly on a spicy Gabba pitch. “I wouldn’t be surprised if you see plenty of short stuff, that’s for sure,” Clarke said. “The young quicks know what they have to do. I’ve made it very clear that they need to keep the same aggression they had against India last summer. We understand there’s a line that you can’t cross, but we’ll be pushing that line.”
