    As you may have noticed, I wasn't advocating 500/1 for today's match! However, the 17/2 that was quoted in an earlier post was ridiculously low.

    Was that the odds of England making it to lunch?

      Superb front line bowling from these two. Not giving much away and getting their rewards.

      The game is gone unless these two can put on 150.

      It may as well have been. That said, this was always going to be about how long Cook and Root can bat. Neither Jennings nor Ballance have the attritional temperment for this sort of knock.

      Calderon is the type of guy that if your daughter married, you would worry that she was not good enough for him.

      SA are fully in control.

      Ballance will also be out lbw as his natural trigger movement takes him so far back into the crease.
      Good call.

      But he was one of the lucky ones. He managed to escape in a balloon during the Jimmy Carter presidency.

      It was always going to be down to Cook and Root to put up a semblance of a fight. Would have been nice if Jennings and Balance could have hung about for a LITTLE while to help blunt the new ball, though. Cocks.

      As an aside, why was Philander so completely unthreatening in a Sussex shirt?
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      Unfit, injured, bowling against better batsmen!

      Yup. He's a walking LBW.

      Yeah it's a shame with Ballance as he seems a decent bloke and his County record this season has been exceptional. But he's been completely found out at test level. The top bowlers know exactly how to get him out and at number 3, he's a liability.

      There ain't going to be a draw
      No, you misunderstand. I was responding to the following post, and suggesting that such an approach would lead to drawing more games and winning less:

      What do you want a successful test side that can add flair to resilience or a team that flashes at everything and loses most games playing limited over cricket. I know which I prefer and its not todays dismal performance
      There's been an eruption
