    Attracting a big following this series, clearly.

    Duminy has just registered his maiden ODI ton, ftr.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Interesting to see Kyle Jarvis listed as 'fast'. Ive never seen him bowl. Has anyone?

    Also interesting that he has played 8 ODIs and only 1 other List A game. It surely cant be good for the International game to have players devoid of any intermediate experience.

    No, but...

    5.6
    Jarvis to Kallis, no run, very good delivery to end off the over, quick and vouncy. 140km/h and Taibu takes the ball over his head.
    7.1
    Jarvis to Smith, 3 wides, bouncer, not a bad one either, 145km/h and bounces a bit too much. Flies over the keeper.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Yes, a whole seven posts. Surprised JP hadn't made a ton before tbh. Thought of him as more of a one-day than Test player.

    Game was on Sky, hence me posting on it. Didn't see it all, but they were the exceptions rather than the rule from what I saw of him.

    JP has actually been more suited to the longer format and hence his FC average of 53 and scoring 166 at the MCG in only his second test.

    JP's always had the skill and talent to be a top class ODI player and in the last year or so he really has expressed himself and showed his wide range of attacking strokes.

    What was evident when he came on the domestic scene as a 19-year-old was his hands and how brilliant they are when he is batting.

    Seriously the next time you watch JP you must just watch the flexibilty and late adjustment of his hands to play a shot...its brilliant.

    Couldn't watch the second match, but seems like we did a whole lot better in terms of the bowling than in the first, which is a relief.

    Lopsy looks fantastic these days. Not quick but he looks unplayable. I think his left-arm angle and his height makes up for his lack of pace.

    Didn't see much of the first game, but was nice to see McLaren pull the shirt on, finally.. I hope they don't see Morkel's bowling successes as anything to suggest that he is an adequate international bowler, the guy is a pie thrower of note..
