I think there are still bigger tests for Philander, India probably being the main one, but I'm really not surprised he's causing problems here. He's just world class. The ability to bowl accurately, present a good seam position, meaning you can swing it and seam it both ways, puts you in pretty good stead anywhere really.
Steyn has done very well in India before. He often starts series slowly after a layoff.
SA would ideally like the lead not to cross 100. If Pak get to 400 by tea, then things could get very tricky on day 4 and day 5. Also south africa have mainly used pacers for the workload which means plenty of rough areas for Ajmal and ZB to exploit
I would not worry about Steyn much so far, he has had a few edges and no luck at all... Just a matter of time (Hopefully before lunch)
I have no idea why people on cricinfo want us to play Tahir... his stock delivery is the full toss.
One day, people won't use India as an example that someone can perform in the UAE. That day probably isn't anytime soon though.
His variation is the short hit me ball!
Robbie P gone for a 100 in 24 overs and wicketless
why is Smith persisting with RP? Why doesn't he use duminy?
