  • NZ are going to pull off another draw. If they can do it again in the 3rd Test, that will cause some serious damage to India’s championship points. :cool:

    Good news for us hey?

    We should give India a good run here at home, putting a further dent on their number 1 ranking..

  • I smell a draw – Smith went for overkill on the declaration again. Declared 50 runs too late IMO.

    I agree.. We should have stopped as the batsmen got their centuries..

  • Just saw a replay of both dropped catches. Not difficult chances. Should have been taken. Boucher had to go low to his left and Amla’s catch was made to look harder by his reaction time, but by the time he dropped the ball, AB was waiting next to him, it almost looked as though AB would have been able to take it from the other side of the pitch!

  • Pakistan have managed to get through to lunch without any further damage.

    Pak 187/3

    SA need 7 wickets or Pakistan need 264 runs in the remaining 58 overs

  • @Letgo (Comment 11) : Amla’s catch was an easier version of the one he took yesterday. The ball popped up, instead of going straight down.

  • @klempie (Comment 28) : I think there would have been more intensity from both teams had the scores been closer. More pressure on both teams would have been a good thing for SA.

  • @Letgo (Comment 31) : Well, we should have won this match, wasn’t sure how many more overs were left. It seems that it is officially a draw, Pakistan finished on 343/3. If the match continued Pakistan would have probably have won it
