Rudolph helps SA warm up in Perth
Jacques Rudolph hit an unbeaten double century in a drawn match on Tuesday against Western Australia A in South Africa’s final warm-up match before Friday’s first of three cricket Tests against Australia.
Rudolph finished 201 not out, sharing in a 175-run stand with Andre Nel (64) as the visitors reached 395-9 declared in their second innings, an overall lead of 387.
Western Australia A then managed 64-1 in their second innings as the match ended in a draw.
Jacques Kallis continues to struggle with an elbow injury, and is in doubt for the first Test, but Rudolph has played strongly since arriving in Australia.
Rudolph scored 43 runs in the first three-day match against Western Australia and an unbeaten 59 in the one-day victory at Lilac Hill over a Cricket Australia Chairman’s XI last Friday.—Sapa-AP.
