    Going by what I saw yesterday, another 100 and this game is over.
    Good fight today but 300+ was too much to concede given the purchase for the spinners.
    South African groundsman must have got a right earful, particularly as Pakistan have fielded a pace attack which is up there with their worst. Tanvir Ahmed's runs could prove invaluable but the guy was bowling 120kph crap which hardly got above ankle height yesterday.

    Can say that again, plenty of twists and turns and tomorrows opening session is huge. A comprehensive session from either side could win the game for them.

    His grunts might get some wickets.

    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

    What an awesome session after tea, really good bowling and brilliant batting, if Pak can keep going to lunch without losing more than a wicket they should be big favourites.

    But I still think we can chase up to 300 on this wicket.

    I know Smali is the resident pessimist but I would like to join the party here. What a horrible day AB drop catch set the tone and then allowing RP to score 84 was crimnal the openers showed no ticker falling to some basic stuff only an Ajmal moment of genius can save the game and don't get me started on Umer Gul the bastard has not shown up for ages.

    Hanging on how many they score, obvs. I don't think Pakistan are likely to step on it and if they get more than 80 in the session I'd be very surprised.

    The main thing holding the odds on Pakistan out right now is there's very little batting to come.

    I'd mark SA as favorites chasing anything up to about 250-275. They bat deep and there's been very little got out of the pitch, all the damage so far coming from the new ball for the hosts and Ajmal's jiggery pokery for the visitors.

    Pitch is keeping low and turning actually. 250 max might be chasable - but 275-300 and Pak should be favorites.

    This next day is going to make excellent viewing. Steyn will be fired up because he knows the match depends on SA getting a chase-able total.

    Kallis bowled more overs than they wanted him to in the first innings so they slid him down to five to give him a rest.

    I'm not even joking.
