All-rounder Cameron Green took five wickets for Australia as they bowled out South Africa for 189 on day one of the second Test at Melbourne.

David Warner then hit an unbeaten 32 as Australia reached 45-1 at stumps.

Green, 23, ended with career-best figures of 5-27, days after becoming the second most-expensive signing in IPL history last week when he joined Mumbai Indians for £1.75m.

England’s Sam Curran was bought by Punjab Kings for £1.85m.

“That’s cricket summed up,” said Green. “You can have a really slow start to the summer and think cricket’s so tough and then you have a few days like this, and it brings you back. It’s a very special feeling.”

After winning the toss and choosing to bowl Australia reduced South Africa to 67-5 before a battling 112-run partnership between Kyle Verreynne and Marco Jansen.
