Australia captain Michael Clarke became the first man to score four Test double-hundreds in a calendar year as his side dominated South Africa on day one of the second Test in Adelaide.

Clarke, who scored 259 not out in the drawn first Test in Brisbane, finished the day unbeaten on 224 from 243 balls.

David Warner (119) and Michael Hussey (103) also scored tons as the hosts finished the day on 482-5.

Donald Bradman scored three Test double-hundreds in England in 1930.
