    It was still a series win away from home and it says a lot about them that they still got over the line despite as not being at their best at times.

    Not a chance in hell. Especially 'thrash'.
    imagine the chances of choking in a combined SA-Eng side
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    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

    Reckon people generally overrate Morkel just as much as they underrate Anderson. Jimmeh has,.over the last few years, shown he can produce quality spells in places not generally helpful for quicks. Morkel is waaay behind him imo

    I'm not saying that Australia are better than SA. I'm the first to say SA are the best team in the world, but they're not 'so far ahead of the pack'.

    If the pack was NZ and SL then maybe yeah.

    But the series at home was only drawn also...

    Only as good as what the opposition lets you play. SA are the best but its no where even close to as much of a gap as when Australia were number one back a few years ago.

    Haha, all the sports journo's in NZ have been crying out for McCullum to be captain for the last 12 months, and during the T20 series there was a lot of talk in the papers about clear signs that the team was coming together brilliantly under him, and working hard as a unit in a way they never did under Taylor. You can really see it today.

    Amla is so good at shuffling and playing it on the legside

    Andersen is great but he doesn't really add anything that philander and steyn can't do. Morkel atleast can get some bounce.

    I see Luke Ronchi becomes eligible for NZ on Day 3 on the 2nd test. Perhaps they should parachute him in mid-test.... :O

    He's been one of my favourites over the years, but Martin looks done. Bit sad watching him so past his best against such a powerful opponent.

    How bad must Wagner be if he isn't seen as a better option than Martin. I'm not a big fan but surely he can't be this bad?
