    I can see the Aussies go on like this until the lead is 100, and then slog their way to whatever lead at lunch. Could be near 200! But I really can't see them knocking over 10 SA wickets in any way.

    Have to say the SA bowlers toiled hard, and kudos to the visitors for the warm hand shakes at the end of such a long day for them
    Have to day Cowan in that he opened, had one slice of luck with the Morkel no ball but didn't get to take advantage of the part-timers.

    Amla's was also good in that he had to come in early on day one, though he batted sedately.

    SA's batsmen lacked initiative although they faced a more balanced attack.

    Hussey will never face easier circumstances - however it was the perfect innings for the situation. Jumped on anything with width and ensured we didn't lose the advantage by having a collapse similar to SA.

    India @ SCG 2012.
    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

    MoYo in 9 at the end of 06. Didn't start at the start of the year hence only partially "better"


    192 Eng//Leeds
    8
    128 The Oval
    192 WI//Lahore
    56 Multan
    191
    102 Karachi
    124
    32 Sa// Port Elizabeth

    1025, You can also take his 15 in the 2nd innings at Manchester to fit it into a calendar year.

    Also SCG 2010 for an eaiser 100

    Which is why we still have to reserve judgement for the Ashes. Would be more challenging in SS than today.

    Absolutely can't wait for tomorrow. This has got to be up there with our best ever days in test cricket. We have gone from being basically written off at 3-40 (and 410 behind) to putting South Africa in a position where quite frankly the game is theirs to lose.

    In all honestly I am expecting that when we declare or get all out SA will probably just bat the remaining 2 sessions without any troubles. But would be amazing to see Mike ton up and Clarkeh rack up another trip.

    Only fools wrote Australia off. Last night there was nothing in SA's bowling to suggest a collapse, especially with no spinner and Kleinveldt out of his depth. With no swing on offer Steyn and Philander's major weapons disappeared.

    We've seen this script before several times in the past year. Only cricket novices thought Australia was gone.

    It doesn't really give them more time though because the lead is so small. If they take all three sessions tomorrow to bowl South Africa out then they'll pass Australia's score by then anyway. Declaring with more time left and giving the bowlers more time aren't the same thing; runs give the bowlers more time too.

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