    To be fair, particularly to Precambrian, they were only saying what was reasonable to say at the time. He quite clearly has improved, he's five times the bowler he was a year ago. If someone had said, "he's useless, should be nowhere near the side and will never be test-class" then it's worth a dig, but really he's just gotten a lot better. We knew he had the capacity to improve, and in that sense he's proved everyone right.

    Yeah I know. Tongue strictly in cheek - I included myself for the bagging as well (although I made it clear in my post I hope that it was too early to make a call one way or another back in the dim distant days of November).

    Now we have North in (I assume) and Hughes which imo, only makes us stronger.

    Siddle, Johnson, Bollinger, North, McDonald/Hilfenhaus is a very good bowling attack for South Africa.

    In my mind, it's Australia 55-45.

    A cross-section of the pre-match discussion I was involved in.

    Such a brilliant win from Australia. Beaming here.

    Interesting to see how the Saffies bounce back next test as I think they've got real problems

    Morkel (whose talent I rate very highly) was terrible except for a few unplayables here and there

    Ntini looks finished and was completely flattered by his figures

    Duminy has been exposed by short pitched bowling and not for the first time

    They'll probably stick with the same attack but I'd certainly pick Prince

    Yessssss..... really chuffed with this win, to come to South Africa as the underdogs and perform like the way all the blokes have, is truly exceptional, it was such an awesome team effort, almost everyone chipped in at sometime or another, which was really heartening to see.

    Tremendous effort from Mitch, lead the attack brilliantly, and the runs he contributed with the bat in the 1st innings also proved to be very important in the end, the rest of the bowlers too deserve a lot of praise, for the in which they stuck to their task, and bowled tirelessly through this game.

    And to be fair most of the Aussies on here said he was cack during the Windies series and even before the Indian series away this was standard response - He dont swing it, He dont swing it and guess what, He dont swing it

    Get Doug Bollinger in the side, "he can swing it"! Please!

    This is the most satisfying test match win for Australians since we took back the ashes, and probably before that since we won in India. Great game, well played guys .

    Fully expect their batting to be a whole lot better in Durban (?). Smith found some form again in that 2nd innings, whilst Amla & De Villiers seem to be in some pretty good form. Amla really needs to convert his starts though if he wants to hurt us. Has made it into double figures in all bar 2 innings in the past 8 against Australia iirc, and only made it past 60 once?
