Smith: 3 - fairly forgettable really.
Petersen: 6 - hit a decent half-century, but he'd like to forget that second innings quickly.
Amla: 8 - gun dig in the first innings, but didn't make it a huge one.
Kalls: 9 - should've bowled more. Gun batting however.
de Villiers: 6 - decent dig to stop any hope of Australian victory in the third innings. However, should they really have him keeping?
Rudolph: 3 - forgettable.
Duminy: n/a - sadly injured before he could anything.
Philander: 1 - failed to take a wicket and had real no-ball problems.
Steyn: 3 - generally ineffective.
Kleinveldt: 0.5 - awful debut, likely to be a one-test wonder.
Morkel: 5 - at least asked questions to some extent.
Cowan: 9 - excellent maiden ton, loses a mark for how he got out though.
Warner: 1 - eh....
Quiney: 2 - great 9.
Ponting: 0 - and he even showed good domestic form too
Clarke: 10 - wow.
Hussey: 8.5 - not the hardest place to bat, but the aggression was great.
Wade: 4 - not that impressed. Keeping seemed rusty, and batted fairly slowly which could have made a big difference.
Lyon: 5 - saved himself by a couple of last-minute wickets, but seemed very weak for ages.
Siddle: 5 - bowled with some decent fire at times and probably should've gotten more wickets.
Hilfenhaus: 3 - kept it tight but seemed innocuous.
Pattinson: 7 - pick of the bowlers in very tough circumstances.

Well the Proteas darn well better make some changes.
Faf, Tahir and even maybe Elgar for Rudolph must come in
Was saying before the test itself that rudolph is a bit of a liability... Faf needs to be given a chance now methinks... he's got a good head, and if he comes in when the team's score is already massive, he has the ability to really step up the run rate. Pretty awesome fielder too... this change is mandatory for SA in the next test imo
Harris v Tahir v Botha. Are there really no better spinners in SA atm?
What makes it even worse is one didn't even develop his cricket in South Africa and the other chucks. Which leaves us with the horrible douchebag that is Paul Harris.

Yeah I agree with Heboric. Harris did what SA asked of him. Tahir doesn't.
Botha bowling alright at the moment too.
