SA vs England: 3rd Test (Day 5)

England were 132/3 at stumps on the fourth day of the third test against South Africa in Cape Town, leaving them one day to either survive or make it to 466.

They’ll need another 334 to win the match, while South Africa need seven wickets after three late strikes revived a flagging effort on the fourth afternoon.

Resuming for England on Thursday morning will be Jonathan Trott on six not out and night watchman James Anderson on zero.

Alastair Cook and Andrew Strauss attacked the Proteas’ bowling immediately after tea when they resumed at 33/0. But South Africa managed to put the brakes on them — if only through some wide bowling — before they eventually reached their 100 in the 36th over, 20 minutes after the interval.

Cook reached his second 50 of the match in the 34th over, but the pressure eventually told on him when he played a similar shot to that which got him out when he was well set in the first innings. He tried to paddle Friedel de Wet from outside his off stump and got a top edge that Mark Boucher simply had to stand and wait for. Cook was gone for 55 in the 37th over.

Suddenly South Africa sprang into life with an hour left to go in the day. Three overs later they got rid of Strauss, the other thorn in their side, for 45. It was the under-fire Paul Harris who removed the England captain, who tried to turn the spinner into the on side, nudged it onto his pad and popped up a simple catch for Hashim Amla. He’d gotten away with a similar mistake in the 24th over when it escaped Amla’s reach, so perhaps it was a case of justice done.

That brought two new men to the wicket — Trott and Kevin Pietersen. South Africa had the wind in their sails once again as they looked to get rid of their former countrymen.

They thought they had Pietersen right away as De Wet had him given out LBW in the very next over, but the batsman’s TV review showed a big inside edge and he was able to hang around amid growing excitement that seemed a distant prospect just a few minutes earlier.

Things got even better for South Africa as Dale Steyn then removed Pietersen cheaply for the second time in the match. He was LBW right in front — there was no need for a review this time as he walked when given out.

Anderson then came in as night watchman and had to face a barrage of short stuff from Morne Morkel and Steyn, with attacking fields keeping close watch. But he knew his job and did it well, seeing off the last over from Morkel.

  • Right. We’re back on.

    After I left you last night. South Africa made a big push by removing Cook, Strauss and Pietersen before the close.

    Trott and Anderson are at the crease with the score at 132/3.

    SA have 90 or so overs to get 7 wickets.

    Unbelievable wicket. LOL

    Harrass puts one up full and Anderson tries to sweep it on the full. He makes contact but sweeps it down onto his foot which loops back to Prince short fine leg. :lol:

    Yep, Gibbs just loves the Dolphins. I also enjoyed that other youngster that got a ton and then the fielding antics of Stiaan Engelbrecht were great.
    On the Dolphins side it was really good to see the class of Benkenstein and that young Miller looked classy.

  • I tell u who is to blame. That idiot Mike Proctor. Moving our most consistent middle order batsman to open the batting despite his reluctance to do so.
    And where the hell does this De Wet oke come from?? Why not give Langers or Parnell a chance??

  • @wpw (Comment 97) : Problem is, who will open in Ash’s place? De Wet almost won us the first test but is injury prone. Parnell is a one day player only at the moment. His first class is nothing to speak of. I think Langers is a good option but he might not be interested after the Nel fiasco.

    Langers has made himself available but i think he is 35 already which is prolly why he is not involved. As for the opening berth, how about Hashim??

  • What am thinking?? Alviro deserves a chance after his 3 consecutive 50′s in the one dayers. He was also the leading run scorer in last years SS competition… Who will make way?? JP??

  • @wpw (Comment 100) : Hash hasn’t got the technique for it. A seaming/swinging new ball would clean him up in no time.

  • @wpw (Comment 101) : Alviro’s not an opener either. Why we suddenly have such a dearth of openers is beyond me. We need to find a scrounger like Kirsten.

    Oh but he is bru. :smile:

    He has opened for the Lions for years now.

    In fact, he scored over 1000 runs in the Supersport Series last year and broke all sorts of records along the way.
