    While I think Wagner is simply not good enough... cricket is such a cruel game, when batsmen play **** shots like that one from Elgar and get four runs for it... and Wagner is watching his career end before his eyes.

    Elgar looks like a tail-ender who is fluking runs. Yuck.

    I've only watched since lunch, but I haven't seen too many short balls to Elgar, which looks to be a glaring weakness in his game. Did they try and fail early? Looks a bit too friendly here....

    Though I guess it's not like NZ have a lot of bowlers who can hurry a player consistently.

    Wagner tried but was pulled to the boundary but most of the bowling Elgar has faced has been Patel and Munro.

    Elgar has mainly faced Bracewell, Wagner & Patel.

    Elgar is very good on the short ball and has punished Bracewell & Wagner this innings with pull shots or ducked under. He likes to attack spin as well.

    Area, you want to bowl to Deano is full and angling across him early in his innings. When he gets in, its not so much a weakness anymore.

    Standing flat-footed and prodding without middling anything seems to be his go. But whatever, probably better than any of ours.

    This has to be a joke right? Looked like a deer in the head lights in Australia.

    It was nerves. I have seen him domestically for quite some time. Sits deep in his crease with his weight on the back-foot so latches on to the pull shoot quite quickly when he watns to play it.

    Mitch bitch with his catapault action at his beloved WACA can be tough for many new left-handed batsman.

    Does he ever move his feet? Watching closely and his shot to anything fullish and wide is seriously to stand completely still and poke

    Not a big feet mover, especially going foward to defend. He will rather play from the crease.

    Doesn't matter, we let him have 3 flaky pokes and then bowl one on his pads

    Doesn't look test quality to me.

    Faf on the other hand looks like he's been doing it for years.
