Shit captaincy from faf..commentators curse..Warner should’ve gone

Well, his bowlers are spraying it everywhere and leaking runs.

But, yes, on the defensive far too early.

Bancroft and Warner are enjoying this. Nice friendly bowling and not too much pressure.

Philander back on, but I rather think he'll find it difficult to peg them back now.

Hasn’t all been shit..lots of edges and beaten the bat.. bit of luck and better captaincy you could’ve 2 wickets

Do you think the right thing by replacing morkel?

Philander's value comes from his accuracy and his ability to bring the ball in and take it away.

As such, the batsman needs to watch every ball closely and this obviously takes a toll on your concentration.

If your batsman has the luxury of being able to watch wide balls fly down the leg side or wide outside off without having to worry about them, then it makes it much more difficult for a bowler like Philander to get a batsman to lose concentration (like Bancroft did just then).

I suppose, in this instance Bancroft had forgotten about how to play him and was playing as if he was facing Ngidi or Rabada.

Not really.

To me it was a gamble, and it clearly hasn't paid off. Yet.

I would have preferred to have Morkel's pace and bounce even if the Aussies are accustomed to batting against him.

That said, Steve Smith has fallen for second, third and fourth string bowlers (Dean Elgar?) perhaps it's a cunning ploy?

Look he just happens to have great talent for cricket, if he didn't he would be some drunk bogun with 6 kids to three differnt women, living off the dole! Nothing the skipper and the Australian public fabricates will change that for anyone with two brain cells in their heads...now fùck this, Proteas need to get him and Smith cheaply or its another loss.

I and many of us don't disagree with that

Philander doing all the damage at the moment. 106/2 after 31.4 overs, Khawaja gone for 4.

Test cricket's a funny old game... a slow start, a flurry of runs, then a couple of quick wickets. Smith will probably settle in with Warner, keep him focussed and they'll see out the afternoon session and close to 100 runs.

At some stage du Plessis will have to throw the ball to Ngidi or Rabada, and then we should see Warner up the anti.

To be quite honest, if you look at how discomforted Rabada is bowling to Warner, you can see that sledging actually works!

Quote:
wicket: OUT! Bowled. Lungi Ngidi to David Warner. Seaming in length ball, down leg side on the front foot defending, missed. Beauty of a delivery from Ngidi. He finds the tiny gap between bat and pad as Warner reaches out for the ball in front of himself. Off stump bail is sent flying and South Africa are jubilant to see the back of the left-hander.

Terrible injury, such a clash and to top it off Rabada has brought the game into horrible disrepute, he needs to learn something from Reverend Davey

Unsung hero for Proteas is Maharaj, he has bowled 15 overs under 3 runs an over, this was always South Africans problem in the past plus he takes wickets, good find is Maharaj.

About the same as when de Villiers was run out; negligible.

Still, that cost Lyons half his match fee and a naughty point ...
