    Default take first strike, stamped their authority

    South Africa captain Graeme Smith won the toss and chose to take first strike against Australia in the second World Cup semi-final at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia on Wednesday.

    Australia stamped their authority in the game early as fast bowler Nathan Bracken bowled Proteas captain Graeme Smith for two in the third over of play.

    Please explain the highlighted group of words.
