    Both so true.

    We scored 400, and we bowled out a quality team twice on a flat wicket.

    Superb.

    What's Port Elizabeth been like lately, you know Cribb? Still slow and low enough for...certain Stags bats to get on top of the bounce? Windy and not often good to swing bowlers?
    Don't squander the gold of your days making a shrine of cricket videos, trying to improve the hopeless failure, giving your life away to the Blockys, the Devciches and the Weerasundaras! Surrender your devout little cricketing heart to the inured agribusinessman.

    Gah, my missus said yes earlier this evening, so me and her lawyers spent the last 7 hours negotiating the conditions. Still, way to go boys!

    There hasn't been a Test there for years but there have been a few ODIs there in the past couple of seasons and it looked really slow for a South African wicket. When South Africa play Australia in an ODI and the best bowlers on both sides are part-time spinners you know there's something a bit strange about the pitch.

    Yuvraj tore South Africa a new one with the ball in an ODI there last year as well IIRC, although that might have been Durban.

    Instinctively, not a ground I'd be looking to play four quicks at by any stretch of the imagination.

    Drop Guptill, send Astle in to open as a sacrificial lamb and use him as the token spinner. Sounds good to me.

    Although she's joking if she thinks I'm ready to handle the pressure on the biggest stage. I've got no show.

    Stop Gambhiring Eeyore.

    "Oh, Eeyore, you are wet!" said <???>, feeling him.
    Eeyore shook himself, and asked somebody to explain to <???> what happened when you had been inside a <CENSORED> for quite a long time.

    Well played NZ. Convincing win in the end.

    I think that new ball attack they have will take them a long way in the years to come.

    Well done NZ. A good win, now revert to being pants again after you play SA so we can get two series wins. Seriously though, despite having a few problems with the batting the bowling looks as good as it has done for a long time. Least you have options now.
