We are back for the afternoon session!

A brilliant session for the Australians. They have managed to pick up 5 wickets giving away just 56 runs. The seamers bowled exceptionally well and used the conditions perfectly. The South African batsmen looked clueless against the seaming and swinging deliveries. They still trail by 277 runs. It's up to du Plessis and a half-fit Kallis to make sure that at first they avoid the follow on and then try to match Australia's total. If Australia get one of these two early in the next session, they will be in the driver's seat. Join us in a while for the afternoon session!

We are back for the final session.

Tea, day 2. A pretty good session for South Africa, they have managed to score 114 without losing a wicket in the second session. It's a strong fight from the openers and both of them looked solid in the middle. Wade missed the stumping of Smith which could prove costly. The Australian bowlers did not get any significant movement, only Hilfenhaus seemed to trouble Smith who is on 57 not out and Petersen on 47. They would be looking to step up a gear and pick up wickets in the next session. South Africa, on the other hand, would be looking to continue the same momentum. Join us in a while for the evening session.

We are back for the aftenoon session! Hilfenhaus to continue, Petersen at the striker's end..

A good session for South Africa. After the Aussie carnage yesterday, they have bounced back well early today managing to pick up 4 Australian wickets for just 22 runs. Morne Morkel started the good work castling Clarke with an absolute ripper and then went on to clinch his 6th Test five-for. The tail-end pair of Pattinson and Lyon then frustrated the hosts with a crucial stand of 46 which took the visitors to 550. The South Africans have started off cautiously, they need to provide a good response to Australia's mammoth total and the next session will be crucial. Join us in a while for the afternoon session.

We are back for the afternoon session!

A brilliant session for the Australians. They have managed to pick up 5 wickets giving away just 56 runs. The seamers bowled exceptionally well and used the conditions perfectly. The South African batsmen looked clueless against the seaming and swinging deliveries. They still trail by 277 runs. It's up to du Plessis and a half-fit Kallis to make sure that at first they avoid the follow on and then try to match Australia's total. If Australia get one of these two early in the next session, they will be in the driver's seat. Join us in a while for the afternoon session!

Hello everyone to the coverage of day 2 of the 2nd Test between Australia and South Africa. The Aussies are already looking solid after their huge score on day 1 itself. Michael Clarke will continue from 224 and will be joined by Matthew Wade. South African bowlers will look to stop the flow of runs whereas Australia would look to post a huge total today. Promises to be an exciting day.

That's it from all of us here. Do join us for the coverage of day 2 tomorrow. Until then, good bye and take care!

Hussey too played a brilliant innings as he stitched together a 272-run stand with his skipper. The Proteas struck back late with the wicket of Hussey but the damage had already been done! The Proteas would be looking to bowl the hosts out as soon as possible tomorrow in order to make sure that the match is not out of their reach. Clarke is still at the crease and he will be looking forward for a triple century tomorrow!

A spectacular day for Australia! They have managed to score 482 runs in a day. Warner provided them with a brilliant start but then Kallis pulled things back for the visitors with quick wickets of Ponting and Cowan. The injury to Kallis proved to be a big loss for the Proteas as their bowlers lost the momentum from then on. It was the Michael Clarke show as he clobbered the bowlers all over the park on his way to a spectacular double century.

Stumps, Day 2! A fine day for South Africa, first bowled out Australia for 550 as they didn't let the lower order to score much runs and then batted well. Still trailing by 333 runs but they have 8 wickets remaining. The skipper Graeme Smith is unbeaten on 111 and Rudolph has joined him.

Petersen was run out and David Warner was the only successful bowler for Australia who picked up the key wicket of Hashim Amla.

Welcome back for the evening session. Clarke and Hussey are the two batsmen at the crease. Morkel will start off proceedings for South Africa.

A brilliant session for the Australians. They have scored 178 runs for the loss of just one wicket. Warner and Clarke started the onslaught early after lunch and there was no looking back from then on. Warner reached his century and after his departure, Clarke made sure that there was no collapse as he too reached a scintillating century and added 70 unbeaten runs along with Hussey. The Proteas looked a tad listless in the session and would look to hit back hard in the next session. Join us in a while for the evening session.

We are back for the final session.

Tea, day 2. A pretty good session for South Africa, they have managed to score 114 without losing a wicket in the second session. It's a strong fight from the openers and both of them looked solid in the middle. Wade missed the stumping of Smith which could prove costly. The Australian bowlers did not get any significant movement, only Hilfenhaus seemed to trouble Smith who is on 57 not out and Petersen on 47. They would be looking to step up a gear and pick up wickets in the next session. South Africa, on the other hand, would be looking to continue the same momentum. Join us in a while for the evening session.

Welcome back for the afternoon session. The Aussies would look to stabilize in this session and hope that this partnership between Warner and Clarke continues. Tahir will start off proceedings for the Proteas.

A good session for the Proteas as they have managed to scalp three Australian wickets. It was the hosts who started off well as Warner got them off to a brisk start but the introduction of Kallis changed the whole scenario as he bowled a terrific spell to pick up Cowan and Ponting.

We are back for the aftenoon session! Hilfenhaus to continue, Petersen at the striker's end..

A good session for South Africa. After the Aussie carnage yesterday, they have bounced back well early today managing to pick up 4 Australian wickets for just 22 runs. Morne Morkel started the good work castling Clarke with an absolute ripper and then went on to clinch his 6th Test five-for. The tail-end pair of Pattinson and Lyon then frustrated the hosts with a crucial stand of 46 which took the visitors to 550. The South Africans have started off cautiously, they need to provide a good response to Australia's mammoth total and the next session will be crucial. Join us in a while for the afternoon session.
