    My goodness, SA's bowling attack is ridiculous now with Morkel firing and Vernon on a purple patch.

    Gotta love Williamson for exposing the tail so much.

    Hmm, why isn't the field more attacking? Runs aren't a problem..

    Because they want to keep Bracewell on strike where possible.

    So, if my math is right SA could get one over of the new ball?

    If so, could be a crazy finish. Imagine Steyn bowling with a new cherry to Chris Martin in the final over of the match.

    Hmm, my theory is to get Bracewell out.

    The way he's batting, SA can surely bring in a few fielders. Take right now for an example, there are 2 balls left this over with Bracewell on strike, bring em all in.

    What's the purpose of the fine leg? Stupid..

    I'm nervous about Williamson's nervous 90s.

    They should be looking to attack both batsmen as much as possible. Its always a mistake in these situations to forget about getting the established guy out.

    Just got home do we finish at 6pm or can SA claim an extra half hour etc?
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    When Williamson is on strike, they encourage the single. When Bracewell is on strike, they bring single stoppers in apart from a fine leg. You can't get a batsman (especially tail-enders) out easily if there's an easy single into the leg side every time. If Bracewell is on strike for just the last ball or two then they'll drop the field back a bit to get him back on for the next over.

    WAG Kane.
