Cape Town: South Africa won the toss and elected to bowl first in the opening Test against Australia at Newlands on Wednesday.

The start of play in the first of two Tests between the teams was delayed due to rain. Play started after a delay of one hour and 45 minutes.

South Africa have given first caps to seamer Vernon Philander and leg-spinner Imran Tahir, while Australia have chosen Peter Siddle for the third paceman's spot, ahead of left-armer Trent Copeland and fast bowler Pat Cummins.
