    hmm yeah well it could obviously make you lose a bit of weight, but I don't know about durability...Although I think Watson said not going to the gym as much helped him in terms of injuries, but it's not like Siddle was a tank beforehand anyway. Probably helped his man boob issue though.

    And ****ING hell, need one to stick here.

    Its almost as though Siddle got scared as the ball was hit right out of the meat of the bat.

    Yeah he was always going to taste that post. Lyon will get him out ala Krejza's dismissal of him at Perth as well and he'll be positively gagging on the post. Apt too given it was about a South African.

    Pretty annoyed really, even though they wouldn't have been brilliant dismissals SA could quite conceivably be 4 down which would really make the game quite even.

    BTW, I know $1.57 isn't huge odds or anything but SA under 541.5 seems very likely IMO - reckon they would even declare before then maybe.

    Its one thing being an attacking captain vs Ind WI and NZ. And another vs a side as good as yours like Eng/SA. Clarke's so-called-attacking-mindset would surely be tested this series !!

    No slips already....hmm

    Said Amla hasn't given a chance his whole career. Benchy decides to take post seriously.

    A Pete Siddle caught and bowled being amongst the Classic Catches options just makes it hurt so much more. ****s.
