2 days to take 10 wickets should be a formality but it is a cricket match.
Report Injera January 26, 2020 5:52 PM GMT
Odd from England. If you're going to bat again, bat long enough for the pitch to deterioate.

As it is, it was aggressive batting that led to wickets. Fine but then declare and have 6 overs at Elgar and Malan. That didn't happen. In fact Root looked gutted he was the last man out.

The only thing i'm happy about in this test is that Philander had the last laugh against the knob-head. The series has been shocking for SA.

Slip, I agree stupid batting yesterday they should have just batted normally instead of tossing there wickets away and batted South Africa out of the game to ensure a series win however now they have a sniff of victory however unlikely but if they pull it off Root and co are going to look like a complete set of Charlies and thankfully we have just got Du Plessis out but still a long way to go.

We ain't any better we just did it less throughout the series. And don't know where we are at after this, SA are absolutely pants at the minute, awful World Cup as well and since losing Smith, Steyn and some others they have been properly dreadful.

Well done Root and co but we'll see where they take it from here

Scyld Berry in my paper put the blame squarely on the fact that many of the best SA players are opting for English county or one day international cricket and this lot are effectively the second eleven. With Philander going as well, they have an uphill task.
Report roache January 27, 2020 6:07 PM GMT
The financial incentives to play test cricket for South Africa do not appear great if a large number are ruling out the test match scene and becoming Kolpac players to up sticks and play in the county championship.

Tell that to Kagiso Rabada

England bowled really well. I have not seen them bowl so full and straight even with a Duke let alone a Kookaburra. I am so used to see Broad bowling 2ft wide of off stump I was a little shocked tbh

The batting is on the same hymn sheet and yet there is talk of dropping Denly. 30-3. 40-4. He may not be the answer but he is doing a job.

Foakes must come in for SL

Test Cricket money must be shared around the World and if neccessary Test Teams subsidised to some degree
