Australia coach Mickey Arthur has said they need to put pressure on the South Africans right from the first ball of the Adelaide Test match in order to get a positive result.

The Gabba Test may have ended in a draw on Tuesday but Australia will take great confidence from the fact that despite a poor start, they outscored South Africa with the bat and twice removed their top order on a batsmen-friendly Brisbane wicket.

"There's no doubting their ability, no doubting the quality of that South African side, they're going to be on song come Adelaide, no doubt about it," Sports24 quoted Arthur, as saying.

"Against a really good side like South Africa, you've got to be on the money from the very first ball. We probably weren't and that's something we'll address going into Adelaide," he added. (ANI)
