  • And Boucher goes in the second over of the day.

    Boucher gone for 15 from 40 balls.

    Really cannot see the point of this.

    Hey Rich!! πŸ˜‰

    Just saw an article on news24 claiming that Dale Steyn could lose top spot to Graeme Swann.

    Graeme Swann??? 😯 πŸ‘Ώ

    What is his record like??

    Swann single handedly demolished South Africa in the last test series vs England. Let me have a look at the ratings quick.

    If you have a look here, they are pretty close. Remember though that Steyn has been injured and will likely drop a spot after an average series v Pakistan.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 16) : Smith shouldn’t have declared in the first innings. He should have let AB take the bowlers apart for as long as he could. That could have meant 50 or so more runs in lets say 10 overs.

    Yesterday we scored 11 runs in 10 overs. Why would you stop that kind of run flow? It would have made the follow on more likely, I just don’t get why he was in such a rush to declare there, but when we really need to declare he sits on in.

  • @Richard Ferguson (Comment 22) : They should bowl Botha a little more. Harris went 45 over or something like that yesterday for I think 3 wickets.

    They gave Botha 14 overs for his one wicket. I they never bowled him for extended spells. I don’t get that. He’s more attacking of the two spinners. Why not give him more of a go?

  • “The groundsman needs to ensure the game of Test cricket stays healthy and produces a good contest between bat and ball,” Kallis said. “It didn’t really live up [to expectations] and you can probably play another Test match straight away and not get a result. The pitch was really flat. Any team would have struggled to take 10 wickets, today, out there.”

    But what really peez me of is when he edged the one ball in the first and was caught he did not walk……He always says in interviews if he is out and knows it he walks,I have seen him multiple times not walking.What is up with that,I never walked but why say it?
