Australia let their initiative slip through a poor batting effort marked by a meek capitulation to man-of-the-match Kagiso Rabada

Australia let their initiative slip through a poor batting effort marked by a meek capitulation to man-of-the-match Kagiso Rabada

The two officials posing with fans in the masks have been identified as Cricket South Africa's head of commercial and marketing Clive Eksteen and head of communications Altaaf Kazi.

Finch, speaking on Triple M's Dead Set Legends, admitted some team meetings do include discussions of players to target with sledging, but said that personal comments - either made by teammates or opponents - are "out of bounds".

The win maintained Australia's Test dominance in South Africa but was overshadowed by spats both on and off the field involving Australian vice-captain David Warner and Proteas wicketkeeper batsman Quinton de Kock.

While captain Faf du Plessis said that South Africa would continue to use body language rather than verbal language on the field - in contrast to Australia's approach - he admitted that there could be merit in trying to prod Warner.

Recently, Kagiso Rabada was disciplined for his words - once when he told Ben Stokes to "f*** off", at Lord's a year ago and then when he waved "bye, bye", to Shikhar Dhawan during an ODI against India in February - while Imran Tahir was fined for a sledging spray on Warner during an ODI in October 2016.

The incident happened when Rabada dismissed the Australia captain lbw in the second session at St George's Park. With his remaining ball in the over, Rabada had Pat Cummins caught behind to be on a hat-trick.

"Respect is the key & and I hope nothing personal was said to any player towards anyone from either side". They posted 311 in the first innings after Barry Richards and Eddie Barlow shared a 157-run opening partnership.

Former South African skipper Graeme Smith agreed it was not good for cricket, but suggested Warner only had himself to blame in an online reply to Gilchrist. The match referee Jeff Crowe will hold a hearing after play on day three of the Test. "It's not our style of play, but Australia probably believes that's the way they are the best team they can be, by being that sort of team".

South African bowler Kagiso Rabada has quickly demolished the Australian batting line-up, with the visitors rolled for 243 on day one of the second test in Port Elizabeth.

"In the last two years I think we're the team with the least indiscretions", Smith claimed. However, Aussie captain Steve Smith denied the claim.

New footage shows the pair walking from the ground together and Warner is heard to call De Kock a "fucking sook", according to The Australian newspaper, referring to someone who is soft or easily upset.

Hopefully we can keep getting better, keep getting more comfortable, and keep making an impact to help the team win. Despite rolling out a smaller lineup, they still hauled in 16 offensive rebounds and 45 all together for the game.

They picked off the runs after that measured start, with Warner accelerating by hitting nine fours.

Bancroft was out for 38 on the stroke of lunch and was quickly followed by Usman Khawaja (4) and Warner, bowled by Lungi Ngidi for 63.

Smith and Shaun Marsh put on 44 before Rabada's day-changing spell.

Rabada produced a fast delivery angled in to the stumps to strike Smith on the back pad. Cummins also edged behind and Starc was clean bowled, with Rabada aiming a comment at the Australian as he went on his way. The second Test got underway on Friday.
