The Test between Australia and South Africa in Brisbanes Gabba ended within two days. How bad Gabbas wicket was for the batsmen can be gauged from the fact that South Africas team was all out for 152 in the first innings. In response, Australias team was all out for 218 runs. The Proteas team was reduced to 99 in the second innings. Australias team lost 4 wickets in scoring 34 runs.

On the Gabba pitch, Virender Sehwag tweeted, "142 overs and 2 days didnt even last and they lecture on what kind of pitch needs to be made." If this had happened in India, it would have been called the end of Test cricket, the ruin of Test cricket, and whatnot. Enough hypocrisy.
