    I know he's not out but I just thought of that and wanted to use it ASAP. Just cop it and move on.
    laughed so hard at this

    Philander's skyrocketing in my eyes once again. What a superb bowler.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Best average for any bowler of either side with more than five wickets. Hope cricinfo and the haters are tasting it.
    So what you're saying is KP has been the bowler of the series

    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

    The England management are cretins. Simple as that. Perhaps it was frustrations such as this which were making Pietersen so disgruntled behind the scenes? Bell wasted 40 balls doing sweet FA. Totally predictably. He has never ever done anything positive in a situation like this except eat up valuable time and then get out caught in the slips. I predicted that this would happen yesterday. Surprise surprise, he does the same again.

    Meanwhile young thrusters who will at least play their shots in an attempt to win England the game are kept waiting in the hutch while a pretender who has proven time and again that he's not got what it takes wastes everyone's time yet again. By the time Bairstow and Prior get in it will probably be too late. How was having Bell and Trott in together at the same time ever going to help England win the match and retain their no. 1 ranking? Management should have been ensuring that they have complementary batsmen batting in tandem throughout the day - an accumulator and a strokeplayer.

    Einstein defined insanity as doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. I've even more respect for his intellect given that he came up with that having never seen the current England XI play Test cricket.

    Trott has been absolutely terrible this morning - nervous, not playing his natural dame or just out of form?

    The time to attack the bowling isn't on a murky morning when you're restarting your innings and the ball is still on the new side. This stuff about I'd rather they go down swinging etc. - that doesn't mean you can't just bat sensibly and then pick things up against the old ball.

    Is there a rule somewhere stating English batsman aren't allowed to use their ****ing brain.

    Was that actually Einstein? There are a heap of quotes attributed to him that were never actually said by him or were completely changed for their popular quotable form, I think that's one of them.

    Short of injury I fully expect Kallis to take more wickets this series. He's a genuinely quality performer in English conditions.

    Willing to have a signature bet re: the Kallis/Philander issue though.
