Kallis and Amla setup South Africa nicely on Day 1

Hashim Amla

Whenever we have Australia and South Africa facing each others it is said to be the clash of the titans and why should that not be?They both are two of the greatest teams who give a tough fight to each other.The First test match started off today with South Africa winning the toss and choosing to bat.At one point where Graeme Smith was out with 29 runs on the board it looked like the Aussies will implement pressure and might get South Africa on the back foot but that was not the case as there was only one wicket of Alviro Petersen which fell after that .That too not before he made a well complied 64 runs.After Petersen's wicket the day belonged to the South African's with Amla showing his magic and Kallis showing his technical skills that helped them setup quite nicely at stumps ending the day at 255/2.Below is the full scorecard of the match.
