    he's got some positive intent that's for sure
    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

    Yep, wait till India beat us as well. Be some fun posts after that.

    Can't see what he is moaning about, a day was lost and Australia were denied any chance of a victory more by that than anything else. As for SA they may have had more intensity in the field if they weren't almost going through the motions knowing it was a draw waiting to happen. On we go to the next test, lets hope the weather doesn't intervene again.

    Is Robbie P still an option for SA? No idea whether he's been performing of late, but I think he's a a pretty decent bowler and a handy bat. Anything to not let Tahir play really..

    What his ability with that bat means is also that Tsolekile could come in for Duminy without weakening the overall batting of the South Africans.

    We've been trying to move away from containing, Giles/Boje-like trundlers. Would much rather Tahir played.

    Would rather see Harmer or Botha in than Peterson tbh.

    Exactly, they have four bowlers anyway, take the spinner who will get you a pole.

    Old school attitudes to leg-spin ftw.

    I could be way off the mark here, but aren't the 3rd umpires checking for no balls live from now on? I.e. they say something to the umpire and they call no ball, even if it's not a wicket? Would explain the number of no balls in this game.

    Yeah, this is what I would go far. I'd like to think Robbie would at least keep it reasonably tight.

    I can understand the clamour to get rid of Hilfenhaus, but surely not for Starc?

    I think Cutting who averages 24 with the ball in FC compared to Starc's underwhelming 32, is a more likely type

    Starc's white ball form is clouding judgements of him

    Cutting is also a decent bat, with a FC century in the bank

    Starc is a more than capable bat himself (not that it's relevant) and performed well with the red ball over the winter.

    Cutting's not as bad as what the CW wags say, but Starceh is better.

    More importantly, he's bowling better right now.

    The potential massacre of Cutting's short stuff against Smith and Kallis makes baby Hitler cry. Would need a permanent bloody 3rd stationed to stop the bleeding.
