    Good timing that. New ball just around the corner, and just one more wicket until we're into the allrounders. Can't believe Martin's only bowling slightly faster than Franklin.

    Franklin looking much better know that he's bowling to a left hander.

    New guy has something to prove and De Villiers has an average to pad, so we may find it hard to get another wicket.

    Franklin just bowled one at 129k, don't know if Martin's touched that yet today.

    No it isn't. Remember the ball after his fluke wicket in SL that went down there at 138kph? He can still bowl with pace, he just can't be ****ed using his spine.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Seriously, Steve could bowl better than this pair.

    edit: before Darlingface reminds me I picked Marto over Wagner before the test, I was picking him thinking he was going to bowl 130kph ten thousand miles outside off at worst, not 120kph down leg.

    oh hey me yelling at Marto made him do well again. im good at this.

    This looks pretty accurate, very gentle looking bowling from Braces and Boult.

    What speeds is Eranga clocking in Ostraya?

    edit: i guess Steyn and Philander were down on pace on the gun yesterday so maybe there is another explanation.
    Bit of a speed obsession bois?

    Indeed if he were bowling at 135-140 rather than 125-130 he might've even got an edge.
