***Official*** South Africa in India 2015

I don't mind batsman looking like scrubs every once in a while.

It's when the bowlers concerned are Elgar (poor man's version of Border with the ball) and a downhill skier like Jadeja that I have a problem
Elgar has taken a sum total of 1 wicket in this test. It is the main bowlers in SA who have picked up the wickets.
For India, Ashwin is the lead spinner and Jadeja is second. The wickets column reflect accordingly.

Also ignoring how Elgar's wickets this series have come off some sloppy batting and some genuinely good bowling.

'Lol X/Y did well therefore the pitch/opposition must suck' is arguably one of the worst arguments any cricket fan could use.

Idiotic batting.

Looked like he had hot coals in his shoes from ball 1, dancing around far too much.

Someone (not me) should count up the pitch complaints for the boredom ****-show Perth pitch and compare it to this one. And then just post the scorecard to that game anytime someone whines about this one. Why get into the same arguments that people have been whining about for 60 years?

Bad from AB again. He should have taken a leaf out of Amla's book about how to defend like him. Confident defence.

Man the replays of AB's dismissal and setup just make it look worse each time.

Its like playing from the crease just wasn't an option.

Honestly it astonishes me how the SA batsmen have approached the spinners throughout this match. Why do they insist on constantly playing back? Or from the crease as they try and read the spin from the pitch.

Lean far forward to try and smother the ****ing ball as much as you can.

They are going by what Manjrekar asked them to do
