    Haha yeah right. Medium Pacers vs. quality batsman in South Africa are often going to be hit around unless they are bowling tight to a ring field.

    Put the mockers on Stiaan for sure.

    Watson is like a Kallis or a Brian McMillan, under estimate their bowling at you peril.True all-rounders. Hopefully Watson can remain as injury free as possible for the remainder of his career.

    Big partnership this coming up.

    17.1 Johnson to Duminy, 4 byes, attmepted bouncer, this time way down leg, not only missing the batsmen, but also too wide and high for Haddin to grab.

    poor hadstats

    Siddle to Duminy, OUT, short and straight,


    ahahahaha. living up to stereotypes here
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    If Siddle can keep bowling tightly, then good luck to him in the tests I say.

    I doubt anything has changed. He bowled very well in SA last time. His natural style of bowling lots of short, aggressive stuff and bouncing it in hard just goes down well in these conditions.

    Bit disappointing from Copeland. Hard to tell what's gone wrong so far just from the commentary, but I am reluctant to believe it's simple because of his pace. Stuart Clark dominated when he bowled in SA and he is hardly that much faster, so I don't see a reason why Copeland couldn't do the same.

    Think the change of captaincy could work wonders for him, actually.

    Yep happy for a full and fast Siddle to play.

    (still think the ixnay on the iddlesay and ohnsonjay in the same team rule applies though)

    Did he? I didn't see any of that last match. The thing is though, every now and again he does decide to bowl in better areas...and he usually is very successful when he does. He has to keep doing it match after match before I'm convinced he has changed his style.
