  • Just going back to that brutal assault by Johnson against poor Harris. Only twice has there been more than 26 runs conceded in an over. The highest is the 28 Brian Lara hit off left-arm spinner Robin Peterson, also at the Wanderers in 2003-04.

  • “Big moment here for Kallis, his average against Australia is just 38.25 and he’s only scored 3 Centuries against them in over 40 innings,” says David. :I’ve always felt Kallis seems to miss out in most discussion of the top tier of modern-era batsman, perhaps this a chance for him to make a statement with a fighting innings.”

  • I’ll tell you lot something for free: If Kallis doesnt do the business today then he really has no BMT and is very little use to this revamped Proteas side.

    It’s days like today when the top players come out and show off their wares.

    On paper you might be the greatest allrounder the world has ever seen but your current form isnt even worthy of the Cape Cobras.

    Time to retire you lump of lard.

    Really, great players are defined by how they play in their team’s hour of need, not by how many hundreds they can knock out against Bangladesh and in the fourth innings of a game that’s already in the bag.

  • @VinChainSaw (Comment 103) : His average against Aus is about 15/20 runs less than his overall average. Not good.
