    You see this is how fine a line it is, just one rash post by Flem can start a collapse.

Watching him it's hard to see how he can be so successful at lower levels, even if the bowling is nothing like Vernon and Dale....

    Second point... I think Doug would be better trying to slog Philander than defend....
    When he hit a hundred here all those years back he just use to hit cleanly through the line like Mitchell Johnson does and slog sweep anything from the spinner. Batting with less conviction than Chris Martin at present.

    Bracewell batting a wee bit too high.

    Yeah, SA won't need to bat again. We might as well throw the bat now because these guys don't have anywhere near the defensive technique needed to keep Philander out when he's seaming it around.

    Awesome, Brownlie got a 100 and Watling a score too. Pity he and Watling got out just before I got to see them.

    Franklin can either score a proper career saving hundred (or at least 80*) here or can gtfo. No lucksacking his way to 50 while dropped three times. I know which one it will be.

    Bracewell still looks like a potential batsman, but a low quality one currently. A regular unorthodox tailender would play and miss and score more runs but we can hope Bracewell grows into a handy batsman.

    You know you've found something seriously special when Steyn's overs become a relief. Doesn't seem very interested in putting much in the batsman's half.

    Imagine Athlai's reaction if this was a partnership of substance.

    Lol @ how Patel is batting though.

    Franklin last scored a boundary in a test match 115+ balls ago. In that time he has scored 3, 2, 1 and now 13*.

    That's what's impressive about him I guess - he's not content to just play the regular happy-go-lucky role expected of a bloke like him with a decent eye.
