    Would have been a good game if you get the full 5 days. Hoping Watson's fit for Adelaide. His bowling could be useful at Adelaide and he can make prettier 9s than Quiney. If Starc bowls well against VIC I don't see Hilfy holding his place either.

    For SA Tahir will definately come in for Kleinveldt. Reckon they'll stick with Rudolph. Up until this game for the year he's been averaging over 50 with the bat. Will ultimately come down to whether they want to take the gloves from De Villiers or not for Duminy's slot.

    It just seems absolutely contrary to what I'd describe as patently obvious cricketing truisms

    Just out of interest, if someone was cleared and then decided to blatantly chuck one, and then was cleared again in testing does this mean they did or didn't chuck it in the game?

It's not even as though it was a mistake. It's a wilful act because people want to protect their stats. It's absolute ****e. The same people will accept this after berating someone for costing a run with an overthrow. Or giving a wicket away with a lazy shot. Or Dhoni for guiding his team to defeat in a limited overs chase by batting too slowly. Every ball, run and wicket counts. It's just a piss poor attitude to say it's only such and such.

    Australia had Lyon and Clarke who could get through overs quickly, it doesn't really diminish the effectiveness at all when Quiney and the other part-timer Hilfenhaus bowled however many overs without ever threatening.

    The extra 5-10 overs might have won Australia this game - it probably wouldn't have but it might have meant instead of being 8-1 they were 6-1. It isn't just the fact that they could have taken 4 wickets in those extra overs. But that it would have put more pressure on South Africa earlier in the innings - they were never under serious threat once Amla was reprieved.
    If time was the only factor in winning the game then you might have a point. Obviously there's a need to weigh up the quality of bowlers you bowl vs the need to rush in as many overs as possible.

    They lost a day, you can't really say they didn't show enough intent by declaring 120-odd ahead and having a crack with the ball.

    doubt it, but reckon your neck is just about popping right now. If he was Australian I'd say the same thing, he's an effective LO dart bowler with a dodgy action - why do you get so defensive about it?

    Should have played him, 100%. Said it when he missed. He's at least going to be a threat to the left handers with his wrong'un, probably more than to right handers.

    And if Kallis can get through even 8 overs a day, they should be right with taking Tahir in.

    As the Chappell brothers have said so often, they were good baseballers in their day. It seems to me that South Australia have a rich history of producing captains that are good at pitching.

There is no reason at all they couldn't do this, it's only the will that's lacking. SA batsmen in Australia aren't going to get away with much time wasting.
    clarke and lyon for, lol wait for it, 50-60 overs. close of play: sa 2/200
