Australia and South Africa will be involved in three Test fixtures from December 17th. The first game will happen at the Gabba in Brisbane. Here, we look at the pitch report of the Gabba and the weather conditions in AUS vs RSA Brisbane for 2022.
It will be an interesting tournament between Australia and South Africa. Although the Aussies are in good form, South Africa is a strong squad and will offer a tough challenge to the hosts. The Proteas will look to leave a mark in this series. A good win here will help them in the long run. Especially with the solid pace attack in the squad, they are perfectly capable of upsetting the Aussies. The hosts, though, will want the established batters to continue doing the job for them.

It was way back in 1931 that the first game was held at this venue. Since then 64 games have been played at this venue. Australia has emerged as the winner on 41 occasions. This shows the dominance the hosts have at this venue.
The average score batting first is 335 at the Gabba. As seen recently, teams will stay in the game if there is a target below 400 for the fourth innings. Michael Clarke scored 259* in 2012 against South Africa. This is still the highest individual score here. The hosts will hope that a similar record is made by one of their batters against the Proteas again.
