Boxing Day, at a sensible hour. Centurion the venue.

England recovering from illness, SA at odds with their Board. Both teams look to be in transition/turmoil depending on how it's spun.

Any whichway, it'll be grand to see the sun shine. Happy

McMaharaj has stolen my dream!

Not really! Almost got in another position for a SA top up. Game over I’m afraid but there was hope if they plundered the 10 overs before the new ball and got a few quick runs with the hard ball.

Got lucky with this test. Bought low sold high! Just going to sit on the larger SA green now. I will never forgive them if they win now. How dare they! ( sorry I have this Greta Thunberg thing going on! )

Hello Ladies btw. Not really able to contribute but wanted to say hello and Merry Christmas

Unreal

I was thinking the match betting had gone up from £27 million to something like £44 mill in what seemed like hours and I thought what a great way to launder money specially after Stokes was out then SA went up to 1.4 with the New Ball so I used up all my England green. Then it went up to 1.47 so I topped up went for a pee and low and behold Johhny does Dallas!

Report Whisperingdeath December 29, 2019 11:53 AM GMT
I am glad Bstard was out for no scores in the match, not because  I don’t like him because I do but Pope is the read deal for me.

I think Johhny is a rare talent but needs to go away and work on his technique. He has done it before and came back playing straighter. He needs to again. He does have a future in Test cricket if he is prepared to change the way he plays because the way he plays is not good enough for Test Cricket or England.
Report Kriskin December 29, 2019 12:03 PM GMT
A good quote - If Bairstow was facing the white ball, it would have gone for four because it wouldn't have swung. I'm giving him 10% sympathy, but the other 90% is idiocy.

tbf Sa were pretty impressive with the new ball

The only chance England really had was an assault on the old ball and quick round with the hard ball and bring the ask to around a hundred and hope a panic set in. Not really a pitch to attack an6 ball!

We were doomed after putting them in, conceding a hundred run lead and letting them score 125 yesterday morning and allowing them to build the target to over 250 then 300 eventually 376!

Anderson, Broad or both need to be replaced at Cape Town.
Report Injera December 29, 2019 4:57 PM GMT
The biggest problem is the state of denial. As white ball batting has improved immeasurably, Test batting has sunk to new lows.

Silverwood's interview suggested to me that the denial continues. He should make it clear (publicly) that white ball batting has infected, like a virus, test match technique.

Burns' shot was appalling. Didn't see Sibley's. Root's and Stokes' dreadful. Bairstow's a disgrace. Buttler left high and dry.

If you bat with iron hands you have no future at this level.
