South Africa v Australia, 2nd Test, Port Elizabeth, 9-13 March, 2018

I'm guessing no changes for either side.

Any pressure on the Snorkle? I guess his 2nd innings wickets probably erased any cobwebs from his form.

Unless Crowe or Richardson decide one or two cannot be selected.

Uber K's actions in poc-gate will save him and the Sneak is out of form.

Hmmm....wonder if the guy that offed Carl Williams trotted that out?

Meanwhile failed firie come SEN shockjock Kane Cornes (smart career move for a bloke that's always been a lot better at hot air than cold water) has announced 'Most Amusing Sledges' as this morning's mind-blowingly original 'talk' back topic. There would have to be bingo cards.....Sportsbet have probably framed a market for 'first out'.

He is so painful he should call his program 'Six Strokes Of The Kane'.

Yeah...'But Miss, he started it waaah!' is right on the cards.

Both sides are doing the usual Morris dancing that happens this far out from the event.

Warner's been dishing it out for years. I'm sorry but we have a history of not being able to take it. Family off limits! Give me a break. Warner and the rest of them, with the exception of Lyons, are softcocks.

It seems that Warner also dissed de Kock's mother and sister. The problem here is that de Kock wasn't seen chasing him like a raving lunatic. You can't serve it up and see red when the opposition returns serve.

Interestingly SA seem to have amicable relations with other teams they play except against us.  Steve Smith maintains Australia is best when it's aggressive, but the perception from opponents is that it's like going to war.

Simon Katich and cricket writer Tom Morris have said that Warner should cop one week suspension and de Kock a fine with the reasoning that but for the intervention of his teammates, Warner would have given one to de Kock.

Afrikaans website Netwerk24 said De Kock was labelled as a "bush pig" by the Australians, while The Guardian in England reported that it was Warner who called De Kock a “bush pig”.

Netwerk24 further reported that De Kock hit back after the Australians also made remarks about his mother and sister.

South African captain Faf du Plessis said the umpires needed to ensure proper behaviour on the field.

"From what I've heard there was a lot of personal stuff being said, to and from. Who started it, I don't know. If it was happening on the field it should have been nipped in the bud.

"The fact that it spilled over after the field shouldn’t have happened."


Pretty juvenile stuff.

I don't know who was right or wrong, but the fact is that the Aussie vice captain was on camera carrying on like a complete idiot; in fact, I'd say his behaviour seemed disturbing, manic even.

While every single person around him- de Kock included- was 'seeming' to be behaving sensibly.

Seriously, there's something not quite right inside this guy's head. Vice captain? He shouldn't be made responsible for wearing his shoes the right way.

He's a Bogan Westie, f, and dumb as a rock.

Still, it takes two to tango.

And you summed up de Kok - "spaced out", which is why you saw no reaction from him.

The essence of the schoolyard spat.

Warner, apparently, called De Kock a 'Bush Pig'. Classy.

It was then also reported that the Aussies had brought up De Kock's sister and mother, for some reason, while there were suggestions that 'Quinny' had casually reminded Warner of his wife's retreat to a nightclub toilet with a certain Sonny Bill Williams.

Meanwhile Steyn is on track for the third test, but the series could almost be decided by then.
