Australian captain, Michael Clarke, produced his third double-century this year with an unbeaten 218 on day four of the first test against South Africa at the Gabba in Brisbane. 

Clarke led his team to 487-4 at stumps in reply to South Africa's first innings score of 450. 

After going to the crease with Australia in trouble at 40-3 late yesterday (Sunday), Clarke shared a record 259-run, fourth-wicket partnership with opener Ed Cowan. 

Cowan posted his maiden test hundred before he was run out for 136. 

Mike Hussey will resume with Clarke tomorrow morning with his score on 86.
