Australia hasn't been beaten in a Test series in South Africa since Bill Lawry's side in 1970, and with both teams likely to field the same eleven from the first Test, Chappell believes the visitors have the edge.

Australia's vice-captain says he must handle future situations much better, but also vowed to continue defending his family.

Australia vice-captain David Warner says that "vile and disgusting" remarks about his wife prompted his altercation with South Africa's Quinton de Kock.

The ongoing test series between Australia and South Africa is one befitting contest. In the 52nd over Rabada went about hitting Smith on the pads and went up in appeal immediately.

"What happened the other day was not appropriate and I responded a tad emotionally‚" Warner acknowledged.

De Kock admitted what he said to Warner as they left the field and entered the staircase was offensive but also claimed what was said to him by Warner was incessant and personal.

Former South African skipper Graeme Smith agreed it was not good for cricket, but suggested Warner only had himself to blame in an online reply to Gilchrist.

Speaking after day one in Port Elizabeth, team-mate Vernon Philander said it'll be a huge blow if Rabada gets suspended.

Cricket Australia is understood to be furious with the conduct of Eksteen and Kazi, stunned that officials would be OK with the low-brow actions of supporters.

Although the spat with Quinton de Kock was Warner's first big incident in recent times, the scale of his reaction to the South African suggested that he remains susceptible to a jibe.

The 22-year-old fast bowler completed his eighth "fifer" in just his 28 Test when bowled Mitchell Starc with teh seamer now standing on 129 wickets at an average of close to 22.

In comments likely to strain already frosty relations between the teams, Warner put the blame for the incident squarely on De Kock's shoulders.

Bancroft was out for 38 on the stroke of lunch and was quickly followed by Usman Khawaja (4) and Warner, bowled by Lungi Ngidi for 63. It was not surprising, then, that Kagiso Rabada took 5 for 13 in the space of 18 balls on this first day's play. Four days on, the fallout continued, with Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland releasing a statement before play started in Port Elizabeth reminding the Australian players they needed to behave.

He had Smith and Shaun Marsh out lbw, with both failing with reviews, and Mitchell Marsh was caught behind by de Kock attempting an expansive drive at an inopportune moment just before the tea break.

Had Warner fronted up he might have been banned from playing in the second Test.
