    ABDV's star has certainly faded.

    In fairness to the boy he's being asked to keep with a (as one understands) chronic back condition.

    Kudos to him for sucking it up for the team, but there's an argument that ABdeV sans gloves and Tsolekile would score more than ABdev avec gloves plus Elgar/Rudolph/Duminy anyway.

    I think they should put a notice on the scoreboard when the Doctor arrives. The crowd would love it. Should allow for a 5-minute beer snake raise amnesty during that time also. A real celebration of cricket in the west.
    So much beer snaking going on today that security gave up and an amnesty was in full force.

    It must be said. How awesome is it to watch a Perth test after the bland wickets churned out in Brisbane and Adelaide.

    This is hardly the bounciest pitch I have seen from Perth nor holds much seam movement, however it creates such superior cricket to watch.

    Couple of jaffas from Starc to get Peterson and Kallis, eh?

    Nice nut from Hastings for de Villiers too.

    Had a hard paper-round tho, but. 27? Looks closer to 40.

    There's never a good one, but Elgar's was one of the more horrible 0s you'll ever see. Looked like a kid in his dad's kit.

    Given he apparently he modelled his technique on Langer, he certainly needs to work on implementing the patented Langer "oh look, a short ball, I'll stand perfectly still in cop it in the shoulder" defence.

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

    weren't really jaffas. decent balls that the two batsmen completely misread.

    Well, whatever then.

    In my mind if you're moving a full ball enough through the air to bowl Jacques ****ing Kallis ffs through the gate you're doing ok.

    Criminal Johnson ended up with better figures too.

    quite

    CW's overall insistence on never giving bowlers any credit for their wickets borders on the absurd at times.

    Loving the cheer Lyon got 'cos the (rather pissed, obviously) crowd thought he was Punter.

    How Watson wasn't given before the review is beyond me too. Stone dead plumb, WACA bounce etc or not.
