No way. If Morkel had done that he'd have gone up to him, given him a cuppa and stitched the wound himself.

Did you hear Morne's sledge to Johnson yesterday? They'd been having a bit of a verbal stoush after Johnson played and missed at one, and the stump mic picked up "At least I haven't resorted to bowling off a short run."

By Morne's standards it was R rated stuff. Normally I suspect it's more like "you played and missed but God still loves you. I'm sorry I produced a ball that was too good for you. Oh goodness. Did I just say that? I'm sooo so sorry! I will repent at stumps." *goes away crying down to fine leg*

Actually thought you did, but decided to go along with the gag.

S'no gag. It's all I've got... cheesy bechamel sauce. He'll forever be Mornay to me. Just like my man horrie will never call Haddit by his real name.

Stein v Wilander ... Gertrude was run ragged in three sets, but she sure showed up the taciturn Mats in the post-match interview.

He served up an average bouncer followed by some pretty harmess away swingers outside off stump with a brand new ball.

The fact that he didn't charge in and demolish the stumps of the last 2 Aussie batsmen in quick succession to win the test for the Saffies is the type of thing people remember when calculating ATG worthiness. Just a little thing, but a thing nonetheless.

Missed this when originally posted, but I like it.

Pretty good Freudian slip, or malapropism if you like.

Lunging Idi seems a very worthy addition, an heir to Steyn.

Yes, but physically he's probably more like Morkel, or Andre Nel. Elgar had made the point during the test that the extra height of the SA bowlers gave them an advantage. Although it's fair to say that the skiddy Steyn complemented the taller guys very well.

Philander has had the better record for most of their careers but I've always found Steyn to be more intimidating and the one guy I wouldn't want to be fired up bowling at my team. Philander has been incredibly consistent over the years though.

The difference is in the strike rate.

Interesting that Philander is relatively calm when he takes a wicket, unlike the histrionics of Rabada and a few other quicks.

Interesting to note that Thommo finished his career with 200 wickets exactly and IIRC an average of around 28, yet he would be one of the most feared bowlers of all time.

Philander probably bowls in the 120s for fifty per cent of his spells but wreaks havoc. He certainly is gifted as a swinger though because Chadd Sayers bowled similar speed and looked the most innocuous bowler of all time. His loosener was 125, but he cranked it up to 127.
