    Not to mention the fact that they had the best fast bowling lineup the cricketing world has ever seen. They had the players to do it. No team today has.

    Watling now averages over 45 with the bat as wicket keeper. He's had 8 Tests with the gloves and 7 without now. Can't speak highly enough of how well he's adapted; I remember when CW treated him as a Brownlie-like spin chump.

    WAG.

    South Africa almost could if they wanted to and probably would if the rules allowed them to.

    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Watling obviously thinks Boult can stick around. Not bothering to farm the strike.
