    Philander needs to be a touch fuller to get an edge here, it's moving too much just short of a length to the tailenders.

    a run!

    Pakistan reach the nervous 40's.

    This South African attack is special. Absolutely demolish lineups on occasions like no other team has in my viewing history.

    Well from the very onset I was hoping something like the 2010 Australia test matches..
    We bowled out Australia for 250 in the first game and lost badly due to insipid batting.
    Next game we bowled them out for 88 and won by 3 wickets chasing 140.

    I am hoping for that one bad day South Africa have and one extraordinary day Junaid Khan has..

    Yep, became like this when Philander came around. But a few people still think he's overrated because he's not so fast and failed in a couple of test matches in Australia.

    I'd really like to see a SA vs Rest of the World test series in South Africa at the moment

    Just need to think of a side to play them in the republic.

    Cape Town should be another hard workout but Pak may like Centurion, will be slower than here and Newlands. Could possibly also play a second frontline spinner there in Rehmann as it is late in the season.

    South Africa still need to kill this game today however and will want to bat well. Days 3 and 4 here should be good for batting and Aus chased down a big 4th innings total here before, so they know 250+ isn't a guaranteed win.

    Dale Steyn is quite extraordinary.. I never got to see Lillee, Marshall and Imran in full flow. I feel honoured that I get to see a fast bowler like this at his peak.

    If south africas batting collapse was spectacular, this display from Pakistan is like having sex with 7 supermodel virgins.

    People who say pace is not important..that delivery to Jamshed..the only reason he could not get bat to ball was the extra yard of pace.. it was swinging in but a touch slower and he could have had an inside edge.

    I think Kallis has been amazing today, Morkel is the only wayward bowler, but he is still doing a terrific job softening the batsmen up. Steyn and Philander, well now its not fair anymore.

    Picked Swann over Ajmal just because it'd be in South Africa really.

    Picking a second opener would be so hard; I guess we'd have to think about someone like Trott doing the job.

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