Is this a 3 match series?

No a 4 match test series

SA have lot of batting issues at the moment to be able to compete with Aus who are in such form as a team that even the Marsh brothers are scoring :)
- Amla's time seems to be up, hardly scores except in the odd match these days
- De Bruyn doesn't seem test material
- De Kock woefully out of form though showed some signs of recovery today, Klasen might have been better option now..

Australia are close to hitting on the right combination, aren't they?  Marsh the younger gives their attack balance, and the late career improvements that Marsh the elder and Lyon have made give them great solidity.  They still seem to be carrying Bancroft and Khawaja though - if they could get those two slots filled and productive, maybe get a successful back up quick (Behrendorff, surely?) they'd be a pretty awesome side.

Berhendorf is made of glass.

Teams always have people in and out of form. Khawaja is a keeper given Handscomb is the next cab and he plays French cricket.

Iíd swap Bancroft for renshaw and thatís about it.


Khawaja does okay on non turning conditions.

And when it turns they play 2/3 spinners anyway, so o keefe and/or maxwell will come in khawaja anyway

Khawaja averages just under 60 in aid conditions, so heís always gonna be in the home squads atleast....

Sitting here trying to think of other options now, because Uzzie is a major FTB.

Aside from Maxwell, who'd have to bat 5/6...

Hmmm....

...it'll come to me...

Just watched the highlights and ABDV just looks a different class to everyone else.

Just like us in Oz the SA lower order are going to have to work out how to play Starc etc... very quickly.

Smith falls to left arm spin again.

Lbw to Elgar, hitting middle 3/4 up. Pitched online. Think eh was that shocked at getting out to Elgar he reviewed anyway!!


Bancroft prolonged his test career with a nice fifty before walking passed one.


Aussies still well on top. Whatís we reckon? 400/ 450 before start is let loose on them?

There is still ages left in this game and if the Aussies don't get bowled out then you might as well put the game out of sight and declare with a lead of 500.

At the current RR that would be early tomorrow morning, still giving you a day and 3/4 to bowl S.A. out on this pitch.

Maharaj is a really good slow left arm spinner. You see the likes of Jadeja, Herath and Al-Hasan whom rely more on angles and pace variations. Whereas Maharaj is bowls with flight and guile. Also gets big turn.

South Africa's target will be around 410. I can't see them getting anywhere near that with the current form of their batsman.

You do follow test cricket yeah??


As thatís not how South Africa play. They tend to fight and go hard for a draw if victory isnít possible.


This game for instance

http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/11287/scorecard/903609/india-vs-south-africa-4th-test/

Do you think faf made 10 off 120 balls playing shots?

Or abv 43 of 354 balls?

Or Amla of 25 of 289???

Granted there batting line up is poorer currently, but the likes of Elgar, Amla, bavuma and faf tried to stick around against us last summer.
I also remember them fighting for a draw vs New Zealand beginning  of last year.



Not attacking you, merely questioning why youíd think a side would attack and get out, that genuinely do fight for a draw?



I personally hope they do fight, but Iím not sure there currently line up can keep the aus attack out if it starts reversing.
