Even throughout the first day, the game swung wildly. One moment, we were eyeing off the highest visiting scores at the ground, and Lindsay Hasset's 167 was looking slim. The next, a whole Australian team was struggling to pass it.
Australia began its work on a lively pitch, defended 13 overs for 18 sensible runs, ransacked the next 13 overs for 80, then lost 10 wickets for a further 145.
David Warner threatened to wreak destruction with the bat, before Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi made good on their promise with the ball.
