    There's pretty much no point in declaring 37 runs ahead. There's no pressure on the batsmen as you won't bowl them out for 36...the only way for Australia to maximise their chances of winning is to get a reasonable amount of runs ahead and then pile on the pressure with the ball for a couple of sessions.

    Only we get bowled out for scores like that

    If Clarkeh can bring up another 300 tomorrow he will officially be the greatest guy ever. In fact, if I am to get completely ahead of myself I would put my money on him scoring 3 triple centuries before Sehwag does. WAFG.

    It's all about the risk, for me. The longer you stay out the better chance you have of bowling them out while they are behind. This means that time you spent out there to gain that lead is wasted.

    I highly doubt Australia fears batting a second time as South Africa have no spinners in the team to speak of and given the time left they won't have to spend more than 40 overs out there batting in any case.

    So I think we can safely say that Brisbane won't be getting many more marquee Tests any time soon. Show up, ****s.

    Who killed the GABBA wicket? No hope for a result really with the time left and quality of batting on both teams.

    Brisbane hasn't drawn big crowds outside Ashes tests for a whole iirc. I went to a WI test there in the early 00s and they closed half the ground.

    Brisbane a pretty obvious ground to trial day/night tests if they can come up with a ball

    Yeah there's no point declaring overnight. They may as well back themselves to smash their way to a few more runs
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

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

    It's not the bowlers' fault their blokes can't catch.

    It is the bowlers fault if their front foot lands too far forward though
