    I expect this would happen. Even though there's no real need to declare at 700 either given how quickly they're scoring and given the pitch I would think Clarke will mix up the bowling quite a lot anyway (they have plenty of options to do that) so bowler fatigue shouldn't be a big factor.

    The big if is whether Australia actually bat that long, they don't have a great deal left. But you'd think 700 would be probable before tea if they were still going and there's no reason to declare that early because there is a good 1000+ runs left in the match if South Africa bat that long even if they just go at a fairly average Test run-rate.

    I reckon if they smash 120 in the first session they'll declare at Lunch. I wouldn't do it, but I think it's what they'll do.

    So whinging about the record for most runs in a day is okay, but most runs in an innings is not on? Seems an odd line to draw.

    Knowing Clarke 1st thing in his mind would be to declare 1-11/2 hr(s) before the days close provided Aus bat that long obv. i.e Team first and this way he will also try to bat SA out of the game ..

    Next thing in his mind would be the elusive quadruple and to achieve that his approach in reality would be..let us see Clarke still needs 176 runs...
    1st & 2nd session : 70 runs each and in the 3rd with the declaration in mind he will try to score the remaining runs..Atleast that's what i want him to do

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
