It was astonishing that the first Test Match between Australia and South Africa at the Gabba finished in just two days. The wicket, where bowlers flourished, had steep bounce and a lot of grass. 34 Wickets were dropped where hitters were on the receiving end.
As their hitters failed to contribute in the second inning and getting bowled out for 99 runs is pretty embarrassing, South Africa will be in a state of shock. Temba Bavuma and Khaya Zondo made some progress but were unable to build on it since the great Australians would have struggled to score a total of about 150 runs.
Brad Hogg on Gabba Wicket
Brad Hogg was seen speaking on his YouTube channel and was quite furious on Gabba Pitch. “You can’t have Test pitches going for two days like that in Brisbane, even around the world. The most atrocious pitch I have ever seen in Australia apart from a Shield game, which got called off between WA and Queensland, which I was playing. It was too dangerous to play, was too quick and hopefully, the Gabba pitch gets a rating of 0.” said Brad Hogg.

Concerns for Australia
Australia may have appeared to win the game by six wickets, but their batting was quite poor. The seasoned three of Khawaja, Smith, and Warner fell short of their goals. David Warner’s performance would worry the management because the left-handed hitter has had a terrible Australian Test Summer thus far.

Dean Elgar, the team’s skipper, must take charge of the batting lineup because he has a penchant for playing lengthy and productive innings. The Proteas need a rapid turnaround because their fate in the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2021–23 is expected to be decided by the second Test match; they are now ranked third with a percentile of 54.55.
