    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.

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

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

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

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