To be honest, once we lost the toss, it was always on the cards.

Shamsi, who doesn't spin the ball much, was turning it square on day one. We had a chance in the first innings, when we had them 170 of eight (although, if we'd used the DRS properly, they could have been all out for a lot less), but letting them get to almost 300 make this unwinnable.

The question is, can we make them bat again?

The pitch can't be that different from day 1 to day 2 in the morning.

Eh?

If it's turning square on day one, it's likely to be turning a lot more incrementally on subsequent days.

How much do you know about cricket?

Not really.

Handyman has taken exception to something I said, but I'm not really clear on what his issue is, other than to infer that the amount of turn on day one has little relevance.

Your leaping to his defence is similarly baffling.

You said turn on Day 2 is likely to turn much more than Day 1 “because it was going sideways already”

We both said “Rubbish! It won’t change that much the next day”

Sandy, I think we have to draw pictures for him...

Not sure how it can go from fair at the end of day 1 to unplayable at the start of day 2.

I made no mention of day two.

I was referring to batting last on this pitch.

@Handyman, yes. You do need to draw a picture for me.

That's not talking about who's batting last, that's talking about the Proteas collapse.

I never even mentioned day two.

If you knew anything about cricket, you would see that it's quite apparent that I was alluding to the fact that we have to bat last. If it's turning square on day one, you can be sure that batting last will not be fun.

This is not a new concept.

Just to add that I never made any reference to any batting collapse.

Mendis is given and refers.

Even if it is only day three.

They probably got 120 to 150 runs more than they should have in the first innings.
