" No, it's not. Watch out for: "yes, the pitch wasn't the best, but that was poor application from the batsmen" and "what you get when the two best bowling attacks... " and "the game is tilted towards batsmen too much, anyway" If Dean Elgar's comments are any indication of how things will turn out, that won't be the case. But yeah, will be interesting to see how it all unfolds. At least some good memes will come out of it. Pat Cummins, Australia Captain: Great couple of days, great way to start to the series. tricky wicket. Head and Smith the way they got us to a good total was awesome. I wasn't happy with my bowling yesterday, couldn't get my lengths right on a greentop on day one. Happy today, I thought all the bowlers were fantastic. (On the pitch) I'm a bowler, you're asking the wrong person (smiles). We had a couple of partnerships, a couple of batters played well.

South Africa's bowling attack is world-class, led by Kagiso Rabada. Their batting line-up is not as strong as Australia's, but captain Dean Elgar is the glue that holds it together. Australia will be looking to capitalise on their strong form against the West Indies, with Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith both scoring double-centuries in their 2-0 series clean sweep. South Africa's last Test series was vs England in August and September, which England won 2-1.

Josh Hazlewood remains injured, so Scott Boland gets the nod ahead of Michael Neser for the last bowling position.
Bet Now Australia win comfortably but the conversations will focus on the green pitch. Will they go black and white or grey in the cricket world? We'll find out in the next few days. Dean Elgar, though, did say that it wasn't even contest between bat and ball which could provide indications on how the story of this series develops. Firdose Moonda's match report is up here. There will be lots more content from the match, catch that too here on ESPNcricinfo. For now, it's goodbye from me, Ekanth, my co-commentator Alex Malcolm, and our scorers, Thilak Rama and M Venkat Raghav. Temba: "Is it only subcontinent pitches that are rated poorly or is this a contender? " Going by the reactions so far, this will be in contention.

Still trying to wrap my brain around what's happened. (On the pitch) It was pretty spicy (smiles), if you're a bowler, you'd be licking your lips by how everything unfolded. Challenging for the batters, no doubt. That is okay if there is a good contest between bat and ball. Obviously, on the flip side, I don't see it was that way really. (On MCG preparation) I honestly think we couldn't have prepared any better coming into this series.
I think it's bowling attacks. (On the pitch) I've always said it's best when there is a contest between bat and ball. Head was the difference, you see the scorecard and find out that was the case. 4:47pm: Extras will be the top scorer in the final innings. Handshakes all around. That was eventful to say the least. 19 more wickets to add to the 15 yesterday. The pacers dominated proceedings on a green top. Lyon spun it and found reward too. Australia's chase was likely to be tricky, it was.
South Africa's pacers found the wickets but got it wide and over the keeper at times which opened the extras tap allowing Australia to take a 1-0 lead. Nortje to Green, 5 wideBouncer goes down leg, it's too high for the batter to consider playing and the keeper to be reaching that. It is five wides and Australia winNortje to Labuschagne, 1 runLength outside off, back-foot defence to the right of point allows a singleNortje to Labuschagne, no runPushes the full ball straight, Nortje gets his hands on it. Hits the stumps at the non-strikers' end. But Green was well inParam: "Eknath can make all the snarky replies he wants, but it's undeniable that there's a double standard.
So, regardless of the wicket, there will be a challenge. Mustafa Moudi: "10 Ducks out of the total 34 wickets.... This test had more ducks than the pond!! ""2 Test Matches is really possible within 5 days on this Wicket. ", quips Vaibhav SaneSteve Smith on Seven "Yeah It wasn't much fun for us batters out there to be honest. It was a very challenging wicket. Lots of seam movement, very up and down, divots in the wickets. It wasn't much fun but fortunately we were on the right end of it. "Mitchell Starc: I'm not sure if I have ever played a two-day Test. It was very interesting to say the least.

Australia beat South Africa Australia won by 6 wickets
Sure, there have been plenty comments here about the pitch, but the general discourse and furore is nowhere near what it would have been if this were the subcontinent. Sure, the rating will be "poor", but we'll all shrug and move on to the next one. There will, however, be no allegations of 'tailoring' or 'unfair advantage' or 'bad cricket', as there have been in the past about Indian pitches. " The direction of public discourse is hard to predict.
(On being asked what's helped) Bowling captain (laughs) Boland's come in and been unbelievable. Josh's been great. We've complemented and know how to get the best of each other. Nathan Lyon walks into the frame, Starc, referring to the spinner, says he bowled well. If it seams and spins. Lyon says, "I've always said I enjoy playing cricket to watch my mates to do well. It's great to see Starc do well in all three formats. " (On being asked if he can believe the match finished so early) I can believe it because it's two great bowling attacks going at each other.
(On the 300-wicket achievement) It's pretty cool. Green said it the ball that got the wicket was better than the one where he dropped the catch. It is cool and prestigious. I might reflect when all's done and dusted. (On if prioritising Tests has helped) I guess so. I might have not prioritised it, I have sacrificed some time to spend more time with Alyssa. I've enjoyed my cricket and have been consistent in the last two years.
