From the SA cricket board.

Just called someone at the ground cloud cover is spotty and high at present, play should start on time with the possibility of intermittent showers today. I live on the other side of the mountain and its raining here on and off. A cold front is on its way in so weather will definitely affect this test. Hope that helps.

The much despised Greg Baum has just reported torrential rain at Newlands and the players have abandoned their warm-ups.

It's gone all black here and we also have dire weather warnings and torrential rain. Quite expect to lose power at some stage. Giant hailstones pelting the windows now!

Crocinfo is saying it is bucketing down.

Red, at times like this, feel free to disparage the Saffie weather.

"Always suspected that......"

As Red suspects Clarke was involved in the death of Azaria Chamberlain, hardly news.

".....will never forget the press conference after the Duminy/Steyn partnership when Clarke was asked why Katich wasn't bowled. "You'll have to ask Ricky that" was the terse reply."

Well that nails it. (Unless of course Clarke wasn't really being terse, or he was but his terseness was aimed at the question, or he was in a hurry to meet the Bingle, or he knew damned well that the real reason for Katich not being able to bowl was that he was still sore from a blazing dressing-room row which made the bar fight in The Great Race look tame...)

I blame Skully for this. Cape Town is in a winter rainfall area.

Under most circumstances though the players cover for the captain. Clarke made it clear for the last three or four years that he was doing everything in his power to stay anointed as the heir apparent.

It's funny that BJ and his team haven't even acknowledged that it's teeming down at Newlands as they continue their preview on Fox.

From crocinfo:

The grapevine suggests that Vernon Philander and Imran Tahir are in line for Test debuts. Watch this space for more.

If Philander plays it is a blatant racist selection.

Saw a World Series "classic" a few days back and Justin Ontong was playing and it reminded me of the 3rd Test in Sydney in 01-02. Jeez I felt sorry for him being caught in the middle of that racist selection policy. His team didn't look like they welcomed him at all.

That was back in the ABC forum days - Sara Lander got me an invite to the ABC commentary box on Day 1 and while I was there, Graeme Pollock came in bitching about Ontong's selection. To be fair to Ontong, he wasn't the Saffies worst in that test.
