Opener David Warner hit a run-a-ball century as Australia took charge of the third and final Test by reaching 195-2 at tea on the first day at Newlands yesterday.

Warner was unbeaten on 121, off 132 deliveries with 12 fours, as South Africa’s bowlers toiled on a lifeless wicket after the tourists had won the toss and elected to bat.

The left-hander was positive from the start as Australia went on the attack and their plan paid off.

Australia captain Michael Clarke was the other not-out batsman having made 22.
