    12 wickets for the day clearly a seamer paradise siddle's performance should be discounted

    I've seen Marsh bowl some vaguely decent left-arm tweakers too but none of them are in the class of North/Smith/Clarke-pre-back-injury/Katich in terms of semi-regular bowling experience. Those other blokes were all basically batting allrounders.

    Or in North's case....

    I guess we were spoiled there for a bit. you look at england and there's not much there bowling wise in the top 6. It's annoying but not distressing

    Yeah but they have Swann, and rarely want to go in without him.

    This Philander looks like he is causing some trouble. Ominous.

    Yeah it's not something you should just automatically expect from a batting lineup but when it doesn't exist it basically limits the times when you can comfortably go in without a spinner from "rarely" to "almost never".

    I certainly think it'd be a good idea for the young batsmen who bowl a bit of both (like Khawaja) to focus on spin whenever they do feel like doing a bit of bowling work though, as Watson's going to make the need for a part-time medium pacer in the team non-existent.

    Want to see how De Lange goes. Looks a decent prospect.

    Might have asked this before, but has anyone seen what Philander clocks on a speed gun?

    Don't know where you've got that from. Checking the commentary, Harris went off in the 143rd over, his 29th, when England were 464/6.

    Bowled at about 130 when he had that horrible stint in the South African limited overs setup.
