Australia v South Africa-Adelaide Oval

Today was day 1 of the Adelaide Oval test match between South Africa and Australia.
The first of 3 games was drawn in Brisbane.
This is the second match in the series.
Australia started well and looked to be in control then they lost Cowan,Quiney and Ponting in a very short time.
Dave Warner was batting in his usual aggressive style while the wickets went.
With Michael Clarke's arrival at the crease and a disaster for South Africa(Kallis pulled a hammy), Australia immediately went back on the offensive.
Warner went on to score a century before getting out then Mr. Cricket,Mike Hussey, joined Clarke.
Together they amassed a huge total by stumps.
Ponting on 224  not out and Hussey out on what became the last ball of the day for 103       .
A great days cricket if you were Australian.
Australia will bat on tomorrow and declare or be dismissed with a formidable total.
All phootos taken ona Pentax KX Digital SLR.There has been no editing or enhancing.
I also took a few frames on my Pentax Super A Film Camera for the fun of it.
They will be published at a later date.Maybe!
