    Haddin with a leg-side stumping off Copeland. Fair play.

    Botha finally taking some wickets for SA (red, not green). Kinda liking this whole 'team' aesthetic SA are trying, like, if the guns aren't firing, someone else takes up the slack. Good change, like it, keep it up SA.

As for the comparison to Copeland/Butterworth, he's quicker (a good 10k's on them) and is basically doing all of his work off the pitch which neither of those two do on a consistent basis. Credit where due, eh?

    Speaking off, Mennie taking 30 wickets in 6 games in concert with Sayers is why SA are second on the ladder. It certainly ain't because of the batting, Mennie being 4th on the batting averages tells a tale. I sincerely hope the rest of the country keeps under-rating them, though.
    oh no doubt credit to him for the wickets hes taken, SA cricket being strong can only be a good thing for australian cricket and being a member of AO myself i have soft spot for the redbacks. the thing is im just skeptical when i see these so called "ashes bolters" as the media love to call them, as every time we seem to select of these bowlers who are apparently in the same mould as mcgrath (copeland, george etc) they look like complete **** at test level on international wickets

    Same here but if there's one thing he has over George already it's wickets both home and away. Pete George was a pick on potential (Bellerive wickets aside), Sayers would at least be based on some wickets in varying conditions and just general consistent performance. Seems awfully good at trapping guys on the crease, reckon like Ryan Harris he's surprising blokes with the heat he's getting on the ball at the moment.

    Sayers isn't really a McGrath clone. I think T_C mentioned it before but he's closer to Philander is MO than anyone else.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    So is Sayers is a 125 to 130ks bowler?

    Good to see Burns ton up and Maddinson scoring 76 on top of 154 last month. So desperate for good batting new atm and these 2 might offer some hope for the future.

    Meanwhile the Vics are setting up a chase being 84 on and six wickets left. They might get enough to allow Fawad have a decent bowl in the 2nd innings. I'm desperate for good spin bowling news too. Not that I see him replacing Lyon but if he can nick the 2nd spinners spot off Doherty he'll have completely justified his citizenship.

    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    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

    Ludeman doesn't seem to regard him as overly quick. He was standing up for Sayers in his 5th over just now. The 3rd ball got a wicket and he moved back.

    'backs batting really is diabolical without Hughes. If they do make the Shield final, for probably the first time ever in SA history, they'll have done it on the back of and be relying heavily on their bowling.
