SA vs Oz: Michael Clarke posts another double ton to lead Australia

Michael Clarke

The burly opener smashed Faf du Plessis' first ball in test cricket, a high full toss, over the square leg boundary and lost it in the construction zone to move to 83.

He then hit a six and a four on consecutive balls from legspinner Imran Tahir to reach his 100 from 93 balls, lacing his third test century with 13 boundaries and four sixes before he fended a good length ball from Morkel to Graeme Smith at slip.

Hussey joined Clarke and kept up the momentum, smashing a six against Tahir to bring up his century just one ball after Clarke had reached his 200.
