Australia 111-3 in First Test, Trails South Africa by 339 Runs

Nov. 11 (Bloomberg) -- Ed Cowan and Michael Clarke helped Australia recover to 111-3 in its first innings at stumps on day three of the rain-affected first Test against South Africa in Brisbane, trailing the visitors by 339 runs.

Australia was 40-3 after David Warner and debut-making Rob Quiney were dismissed without reaching double figures and Ricky Ponting failed to score. Cowan is on 49 and captain Michael Clarke 34.

South Africa, the No. 1 team in the International Cricket Council’s Test rankings, earlier made 450 as Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis completed centuries.

Amla scored 104 and Kallis 147. JP Duminy was unable to bat after rupturing a tendon in the warm-up on day one.

Yesterday’s play at the Gabba was washed out. Australia is unbeaten at the stadium in Test matches since 1988.
