Aus will have to bat their arses off here.

We need a minimum 250 lead so that means a 2nd innings total of basically 400.

I don't feel confident with the fragile top 7 we have. Only a Smith 150 will do.

Rabada has it cranked up and Verny is darting it about.

One wicket will bring 3.

No it doesn't. Maybe we need 350, not 400. It may not be that easy to chase runs in the last innings.

Amazing batting from ABDV it has to be said.

Ussie is apt to bring out a big innings when the axe is poised or you least expect it.

Can Smith emulate ABD?

Not in this innings. Spin again, and again a wicket within range of a break.

The old Seasick Steve - all at sea. Spivs and Warpie batsmen are no good off roads. SS aside.

Ussie looking fluent and scoring at a reasonable rate. The deficit is gradually being erased.

Only a miracle (doubling our current score) gives us any chance at all. 1-all would be a fair reflection of the series at this point but I hope our tail can at least set a challenging chase.

Aye Lardy. It would be a pity if our tail rolled over. Another 180 would be great, but it is asking a,lot of the tail.

Reflecting on last night, surely the snooze button has been hit too many times. The gcspoc and Mrs R are not up to it. The poc's twitch has slowed with age and he lacks the technique to tough it out on anything but roads. Mrs R has better technique but lacks the ability to open.


Bog delivered what,he,head always dome. Time to move on. Uber K fought hard, but fell at a crucial time. Hollow Man improved his average.

I watched a bit of AB2. Wonderful knock.


Rabada is terrific but it is a shame he's on the same angry pills as gcspoc.

Rabada really is the business and the future of the SAf attack, but he really has an anger issue. He almost shouldered Warner as he screamed at him upon his dismissal but pulled out at the last second.

His opening spell last night was quite fearsome.

ABdV and Rabada have been the difference in this Test. We have to find a way of combating both.

Saker still thinks we can set something defendable.

Rabada clocked 151 at one stage. Regardless of what happens here, his absence in the last two tests should prove the difference.

ABDV showed his class, not only surviving but scoring at an incredible rate in the context of the game.

Getting the band to shut up?

BTW, just on ABDV, came across this vid of he and his wife singing and was amused by the reaction of Indian fans.
