(SOUNDBITE)(English) SOUTH AFRICAN PACEMAN, MORNE MORKEL, SAYING: "The way he gets the guys, like yesterday was a tough day, the way he gets the guys to keep going and, you know, to pull us up and get us up and pick us up, it's unbelievable. I think it's the sort of experience you don't buy at the supermarket, as they say. You know, he's a fantastic leader and we've seen it again today, you know. We needed a guy up front to be solid and he's still there at 109 not out, and I really hope tomorrow can be a big day for him." 2. REPORTERS AT MEDIA CONFERENCE 3. (SOUNDBITE)(English) AUSTRALIAN BATSMAN MIKE HUSSEY SAYING: "Tomorrow's a pretty big day, I reckon, in the test match. If we can bowl really well and restrict South Africa, then I think we're in a great position to really push forward and try to win this test match. If they bat really well, and bat throughout the day, and get up, sort of close or level, or even past our score, then I think it goes back to being a really even test match again. So tomorrow, in the context of the whole match, is probably a really key day." STORY: Graeme Smith struck a defiant century in response to Australia's massive first innings total but the hosts grabbed a pair of wickets after tea to restrict South Africa to 217 for two at the close of the second day of the second test in Adelaide on Friday (November 23). With Australia's bowlers toiling fruitlessly on a flat deck at Adelaide Oval during the heat of the day, the South Africa skipper nudged his team steadily forward to give them hope of getting close to the home side's imposing score of 550. South Africa's paceman was full of praise for Smith's leadership after an unbeaten 111. "The way he gets the guys. Like yesterday was a tough day. The way he gets the guys to keep going and, you know, to pull us up and get us up and pick us up, it's unbelievable. I think it's the sort of experience you don't buy at the supermarket, as they say. You know, he's a fantastic leader and we've seen it again today, you know. We needed a guy up front to be solid and he's still there at 109 not out, and I really hope tomorrow can be a big day for him," Morkel said. Smith's 26th century capped a remarkable turnaround for South Africa after they were torched for 482 runs on day one by home captain Michael Clarke and the Australian batsmen. Morkel led a much improved performance by South Africa's bowlers, capturing the prized wicket of Clarke for 230 among three in the morning to finish with a five-wicket haul. Australia face another trying day in the field with the temperature forecast to rise to a baking 35 degrees Celsius for day three on Saturday. "Tomorrow's a pretty big day, I reckon, in the test match. If we can bowl really well and restrict South Africa, then I think we're in a great position to really push forward and try to win this test match. If they bat really well, and bat throughout the day, and get up, sort of close or level, or even past our score, then I think it goes back to being a really even test match again. So tomorrow, in the context of the whole match, is probably a really key day," Australian batsman Michael Hussey told reporters.
