  • Robin Petersen… I like the guy, but pinning our hopes on a batsman that has a high score of 68 in ODIs is asking a bit much…

    Faf, AB, duminy and Miller still to come though…

    Kleinveldt in for an injured Dale Steyn..

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 7) :

    That 68 coming in one of the games in this tournament, after pushing him to third.

    Not a bad ploy to increase the run rate, but very risky and could expose us later on in the match when nobody is left to bat with the bowlers..

    Six catches behind indicate some movement off the pitch.

    If Tsotsobe and Morris can get swing, it might not be all lost!

  • It’s a pity that the Windies didn’t make it through. At least this would have been a contest then. With too few exceptions, both our batting and bowling are equally rubbish.

    Whoever lost the toss this morning was in trouble.

    I dont live far from the ground and it was muggy and humid as all hell this morning; a veritable swingers paradise.
    The sun came out just as Miller got to the crease and the batting got a lot easier then.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 72) : That was only an issue in three of the wickets (Miller, de Villiers and Peterson).

    Amla mis-judged a leave, Du Plessis, Duminy and Morris got done by the spinner, McLaren was run out and Kleinveldt and Tsotsobe were bounced out by Broad.

    All the commentators agreed that the toss wasn’t THAT crucial in deciding the outcome of the game.

    Have we not learned anything about the Proteas and that word “semi-final”? :lol:
