5 Changes South Africa Can Make to Beat Australia in 2nd Test

South Africa find themselves 1-0 down against Australia in a three-match Test series. With just a few days to prepare before the second Test begins in Port Elizabeth, there's not much time to tinker with the composition of the side.

Mitchell Johnson has the ability to make extraordinary players look ordinary. For the merely ordinary players around world cricket, this is becoming a problem. South Africa does possess a big chunk of extraordinary talent but never before have their weak links been so exposed.

A complete overhaul of the team would be foolish and unsettling, but there are a few players who now have to prove themselves. Major changes are unlikely for the second Test, but one or two tweaks won't be the worst solution. It can't get worse than a 281-run defeat, right?
