The 2 best pace bowling attacks at the famously pace friendly WACA (although not as pace friendly as it was a few years ago).

AB out. Starc got a nasty injury in training. But yesterday insisted he would be fit.

A few light showers at most, if any rain at all.

If I were sure Starc plays, I'd be laying the draw harder than I am.

batting looks pretty easy at the moment. Aus could be 200-2 before the end of play then who would be favourites to win the match?

You've got this utterly wrong. With three bowlers SA clearly tactically correct to bat well past lunch. Aus probably won't shut up shop anyway and it's only once the lead gets past 500 with under 5 sessions left that you'd think Aus might not win just by batting through normally. Grind them down. Benefits later in the series too. I like an aggressive declaration but not with this much time left and definitely not with three bowlers, one a debutant.

Got a reflex draw back in at 5.8, lay at 5.4. Draw trading as low as it has all game now, pretty much. Not sure how much the market has priced in that SA will just keep batting if not all out. Could go under 4s if still going a few overs after lunch? I'm going to sleep now hoping for an all green screen and Aus 5 down when I wake up.

still need to take 10 wickets, a few overs before lunch would have been a nightmare for oz to face but if you are worried about warner teeing off and being on the backfoot with a scenario like u say then by all means keep batting and batting. they could have put the foot down an hour ago. SA team have choked on a few occasions and think that stems from a mindset of this type of approach of not losing first and foremost. if oz get out of this with a draw, it will feel like a win now. great fightback from SA all the same, shame not to convert it.

I don't think so. I got rid of almost all my final draw green laying it at 7.6 then 6.8, although that was mainly looking for buys back higher I think that's good value, even with only three SA specialist bowlers and a flat track. It's a law of large numbers thing in this situation, as much as anything: unless the batsmen are exceptional ones you'd expect enough mistakes or really good balls to see six wickets, especially as none of the remaining batsmen are really very good ones.

Report mafeking November 6, 2016 7:11 PM GMT
no chance. this is a shocking australian side. only 2 decent batsmen one of whom generally is found out if there's any movement be it off the seam or spin and starc with the ball humiliated by the worst sri lankan side in decades and now being demolished by a saffer side which as england showed is no great shakes to say the least
Report johnnythebull November 6, 2016 8:32 PM GMT
echoing my sentiments..actually think 1.18 is an insulting price 4 the Saffers
there could be a stand or two which could push the price north of 1.2x or 1.3x
but SA would have to be poor with the ball not to prevail
can't be bothered to get up so early to monitor it
will tape it and play catch up
think 1.18 is a fair enough price
were it the other way round would be 1.1 max

Since Steyn's injury, ive been thinking Rabada and Phil would form a decent bowling attack even if the other two bowlers were weak. And so far it looks like these two will be enough to topple Aus on their own. Rabada certainly was in beast mode when he took those 2 wickets. I really like him. He and DeKock should serve this test side for a long period(21 and 24 respectively).

Bavuma should settle down in his role as his place is guaranteed for the next 10 years unless a better black african player comes along.

When the humiliation has been achieved, Aus will definitely turn to a flat track to salvage something better. And that's where we'll see what Rabada is made of.

You'd have to say Aus punters are keeping the draw down, as there is no point in backing Aus. Realistically, the draw should be north of 10.

That's my assumption too, although three fit bowlers and flat track will be contributing. 

I will be gutted if from my at one point I think over £25k draw green it ends up drawn and I win just under a hundred pounds. Over £3k green on SA though, which would come in handy.

They don't call him big Vern for nothing.

Ramping Lyon as much better than a number XI batsman and 6 runs off two balls. Can't believe the draw had got back to 7s with a full session left. I'd got my green on it up by backing at 26 anyway but as I traded some of that out at 12s, would still win £2k more on SA. Hard to believe that I started the weekend with a huge loss on the Spanish game and a shocking position in this test and finished it going to bed Sunday with £3.3k on SA likely to come in.
