    Haha..3-3 it seems the most likely outcome maybe they should play a series decider at a neutral venue like Lahore.

    If I had my way, the benefit of the doubt would go to the bowler, yes. Sissy batsmen have it all their way in cricket ATM, time the bowlers got something going for them as well.

    But just for this particular case, judging by the sound that you could hear at the exact moment the ball passed the glove and by Prince's reaction, I'd say he did glove it and the correct decision was made even if there was technically no compelling evidence to reverse the not-out decision.

    SA selectors really are idiots - Prince is clearly their best bat behind Kallis and they did Oz a huge favour by omitting him

    As good as SA have been, Oz have been bad - look like they've been on the booze ever since the second test and made a flat track look like a minefield against a generally (Steyn excepted) average attack and have come out and bowled absolute garbage for over a day

    Yep - agreed about Prince. What a champion! The guy really deserves a 50+ average by the time he's done. Luckily he's young, and has a lot of time to build it up.

    But he never should've replaced Duminy - he should've replaced McKenzie. The guy is just not cut out for this level - he's the Ramprakash of SA, though admittedly quite a bit better.

    So SA can score 700 dec in the first innings and Australia 950 dec and at the end of 5 days SA have yet to bat again?

    It's very much been the Aussie way in dead rubbers over the last 10 years.

    It's a shame since they were talking up the whole '6 test series' before the game.

    Now they'll just walk away and say "we're number 1"...

    Love that Prince tonned up big, my fav SA batsman still.

    Feel sorry for McGain, though. Hauritz should now be (rightfully) viewed as Australia's Number 1 spinner IMO.

    hauritz probably is number 1, hasn't done anything wrong given opportunity, has taken wickets and kept it tight, probably fairly non threatening, but not a lot unlike harris.

    haha @ that list by the way

    Its happened at a good time I must admit. They don't play a Test for a while.

    After I read an article in the paper I was rather shocked. I thought the SA players were nice guys, but they all seem to be at loggerheads with Prince. AB didn't want to give up the no. 5 position and it was written that there were issues with Amla and Kallis and that Prince and Boucher barely talked.

    I think a lot will come down to who Smith views as his left-hand man (and I think that may be Prince). The simple fact of the matter is that the SA batting line up is here to stay and the only problem is accomadating the batsmen now. The only real change in the batting line up is who will open with Smith; Prince or AB?
