    What to blame SA performance on?
    Selectors not taking tsotsobe and parnell.

    Steyn was very off.

    poor captaincy and field settings from Smith, especially in the way he used Tahir. He neither cut of the singles or the boundaries with his weird field settings. Asked him to bowl around the wicket with noone on the off side i.e. telling him to bowl outside leg stump consistently.

    The Kallis injury was critical.

    Warner, Clarke and Hussey played blinders.

    The pitch didn't offer much, but it wasn't that bad. There was bounce and carry, and if you're hitting good areas consistently you should be able to take wickets with that.

    OK, yes. Adelaide pitches are flat. OK yes, the SA attack was without Philander and Kallis. But wow. 5.5 rpo for an entire day? Ludicridiculousness. Really sorry I missed it.

    Also glad to see Tahir finally getting the treatment his pie-lobbing deserves.

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

    You're blinded by your Clarke love. You just want so badly for this innings to mean something.

    rope being pushed in is a killer though
    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

    I'm surprised we didn't get more sixes down that way tbh.

    Terrible batting from Clarke to not take advantage of that. Should be at least 300* already on this ground against this attack.

    Should be dropped for Ferguson IMO. Because that wouldn't be ironic at all.
