    I just can't see why they needed that many runs. They weren't going to lose the test, so the series result was never in jeopardy.

    Such a good knock from Kane. How can you not love him?

    Any ut00bs of Steyn's comments? Was classic.

    I think it was a stink declaration too and he got his just deserts when it ended in a draw. But from his POV - look at what Sobers went through when he made his infamous sporting declaration it tarnished his entire career,

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Nah Jono, South Africa batted twice.

    I'm pretty satisfied with that result. Normally I'd be annoyed but the bowling attack of the South Africans was awesome. Definitely some of the best bowling I've ever seen but Williamson in particular did well tactically targeting De Lange and Duminy and just defending some lethal stuff from Steyn, Philander and in particular Morne Morkel today.

    Tick for Williamson and Van Wyk.

    I am not sure if I am reading this right - I am sure I have misunderstood. NZ were batting last and SA had finished their two innings.

    Anyway as for this game, well the lack of a quality spinner once again came back to bite SA, yes their pace attack is without doubt top class but pace isn't always gonna get the job done, the same thing happened to them against Pak in the UAE, and btw them commentators need to QUIT trying to compare them to our famous bowling attack of the 80s!!.. SA's is good like i said but lets not go over board now!! ,

    As for NZ, well they tried thier best but their batting line-up just didn't have enough quality and i'm sorry but Vetorri just doesn't look dangerous anymore!!, Williamson done well today but he's not gonna get dropped four times in one day very often, so he should thank his lucky stars tonight , Gillespie picked up some wickets but to me he was way too expensive,

    Looking ahead i can't wait to see Eng vs SA and also looking forward to NZ coming to the Caribbean!!..a series i'm VERY confident about tbh, especially if Taylor doesn't travel .

    Cricket: Injury set to cost Taylor $1m - Cricket - NZ Herald News

    New Zealand's next assignment is the tour to the West Indies, which starts in late June. Taylor should be well over the injury by then but won't have had as much leadup time as he would have wanted.
