South Africa in charge after 1st day of 2-day tour match
ADELAIDE, Australia (AP) Quinton de Kock made an unbeaten 122 and JP Duminy 97 as South Africa was dismissed for 415 by a Cricket Australia XI on the opening day of a two-day, pink-ball match on Saturday.
De Kock and Duminy put on 167 for the Proteas' seventh wicket after the tourists won the toss in the day-night match at the Adelaide Oval. Hashim Amla also made an unbeaten 51 as South Africa took full advantage of good batting conditions in the opening match of their Australia tour.
South Africa lost the early wickets of Stephen Cook and Rilee Rossouw to be 19-2 before Amla and Dean Elgar (43) steadied the innings. De Kock and Duminy then put the Proteas in charge with a partnership that spanned the second and third sessions.
De Kock took his 122 runs from 103 balls with 16 fours and three sixes.
