Proteas surprise bounce-back against Australia (but need to go on without Steyn)

Cricket commentator Colin Bryden joins Stephen Grootes on the line to talk about the surprise turnaround by the Proteas after a bad start on Day 1 of the first test at the Waca in Perth.

Fast bowler Dale Steyn is out of the series after fracturing his right shoulder, and will likely undergo surgery.

It's a huge blow...He made the breakthrough. it was quite a remarkable day's cricket, as Australia was so much in control after the first day. They got to 158 before Dale Steyn made the breakthrough getting David Warner out for 97.

But shortly after that breakthrough, Steyn pulled up in obvious pain clutching his shoulder.

South Africa's task now is to get a very big score in the second innings. They will be down to only three specialist bowlers.
