    Perhaps he should take this as his permanent run up. He's got the pace (135-145kph) and he's more accurate coming from this run up, besides he save saves a hell of a lot of energy.

    more of a drifter, but really - 3rd day test match, leading by 80 and playing reverse sweeps - here's another ffs, what is doing. 3 wickets down.

    I don't think I've ever seen Amla play a reverse sweep. Obviously if you don't play it well then you probably shouldn't of played it, but I don't think you should moan if someone plays it well.

    Although I have to admit I facepalmed after those 2 shots from Amla. Just confirmed your point
