wouldn't paste either sides bowling too much. amla, kallis, clarke are all in all time form, all gave chances nonetheless, hussey a proven performer coming in under no pressure, cowan making a career defining (and both of those last two not chanceless either) hundred.
just because it's fashionable doesn't make it true.
The bowlers had a shocker, only taking four wickets and bowling a shedful of no balls and innocuous offerings. There was a lack of venom and ill-discipline in spades.
Their batsmen weren't shocking but their lack of intent caused a loss of momentum for them.
