    No, but for the second innings in this game it might make more sense to keep Watling going.

    You can't actually do that. You can't bat twice in a row. There has to be at least be a 15 minute break before a batsman can start their second innings if they were not out in the first and they followed on. A situation like this occurred about 5 years ago.

    Well done Watling.

    Two decent batsmen and two mere mortal bowlers and this pitch is back to looking flat. Magic.

    Looks a great day for batting so I suspect Smith and co. may want 50+ overs for average boasting.

    50 runs partnership up now. Was dumb to take a steaming Steyn out of the attack. Rory showing why he is a crap limited overs bowler. No clue.

    What if 9 wickets are lost within 15 minutes?

    I'm sure this is wrong and Dravid did exactly this at the Oval in 2011.

    Haha, Boult can bat. Actually watches the ball all the way onto the bat.

    What if the not out batsman is an opener? Can't be right.
