Potchefstroom - Left-arm quick Mitchell Johnson impressed with nine wickets in the match as Australia warmed up for the first Test against South Africa in Cape Town next week with a comfortable seven-wicket win over South Africa "A" on Thursday.

Full scorecard

"Mitch bowled beautifully throughout the game. To be able to see him swing the ball was great and it's always a really good sign that he's in a good place with his game," Australia vice-captain Shane Watson told reporters in Potchefstroom.

Australia wrapped up victory with four full sessions of the four-day match still to play and Watson said that most of his team-mates had taken something out of the game after their 2-1 one-day series triumph over South Africa.

"Tour matches are always a great way to go from one-day cricket into Test matches," said Watson.

The first test of the two-match series starts next Wednesday with the second Test at the Wanderers beginning on November 17.
