    Because of Morkel's injury, Kallis's workload with the ball increased so du Plessis had to move up the order. Pakistan is in the box seat if it doesn't lose quick wickets. Think SA's decision to insert will ultimately what hurts them. Unfortunately they just misread the conditions which seem to be more suited to Pakistani strengths than their own. At least 1-1 sets it up nicely for Centurion where Morkel will have to be replaced and demonstrates the evenness in world cricket atm.

    Tbf, I do remember there was talk about his hamstring at the time. Might have just flared up ever so slightly and they wanted to make sure he was OK.

    I don't mind them resting him if his work load has been exceeded because its smart to manage players, especially ones as important as Kallis given his age, but they rested him for an extra 18 runs. What would have happened if Francois got out first ball? Send him in and be resigned to the fact they compromised the position both Kallis and Faf bat best?

    I doubt they would have done it simply to give him a bit of rest. They were probably slightly worried about his hammy and thus would have continued to promote batsman until they were sure he was alright to bat. Weird situation though.

    Nah Firdose Moonda made a tweet confirming there was no injury concern and that they were doing it just to give him a bit of a rest.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Get rid of Misbah and we will blow them away. I hope Philander bowls a few gems today. anything 250 we should win. as for Ajmal if Smith is still batting when he comes to bowl, we going to see a hell of a match.

    Misbah isn't that great technically but he is willling to grind it out...........I hope him and Azhar don't fall at the beginning of the day but go on to have a huge partnership
    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

    btw does anybody think that this pitch will deteriorate further and will offer more help to the spinners as the game goes on?

    I think the difference in batting depth will decide the game we have a Chris Matin coming in at 7. RP scored 80 odd coming in at 8.Younis wicket was the key yesterday he could have toyed with RP which would have meant Philander and Steyn bowling more overs due to Morkel injury. I think we might have lost the game yesterday though a good first session my give us a way back,

    When did Steyn turn into such a wanker? His post-wicket celebrations are a new low.
