AUSTRALIA: Following the gripping match on Day 1, Australia and South Africa opened to another tough game on Day 2. This time AUS ruled the Match with its jolting performance on the pitch.

Prior to it, Cameron Green also got retired hurt after receiving a blow to his finger from a bouncer delivery. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje have each taken a wicket for the Proteas thus far in the innings.

During Australia’s batting order, Proteas pacer Kagiso Rabada was hilariously imitated by the spectators. As Rabada warmed up close to the boundary rope, he was seen stretching his body from left to right.

What came next was hilarious as the spectators behind began imitating the pacer’s actions. Also, a fast-moving spider camera accidentally knocked over South African bowler Anrich Nortje in a rare on-field scenario.

When Fox Sports’ “Flying Fox” camera hit the bowler at speed during Australia’s first inning, Nortje was fielding at backward square. Despite being knocked to the ground, he got back up right away and remained on the field.

Nortje was fortunate to avoid significant injury when the wire-guided camera, which flies above the players, dipped too low and caught the paceman from behind as he was making his way to the field in between South African overs. It was really a bad injury-filled 2nd day.
