With the Gabba set to host a Test after just over a year, it is an apt venue for a contest between two teams eager to flex their fast-bowling muscle throughout the next five days.

Australia captain Pat Cummins will make a return to the Playing XI in place of pacer Michael Neser. With the rest of their combination remaining same from the second Test against West Indies in Adelaide earlier this month, expect an in-form Australian side to challenge the Proteas in a much better way than it was the case during their last series (both away and at home).
