One of the best drawn games in a long time, well done S.A.
And if they get it right by leaving out that Tahir in Perth, they have a good chance of beating the World's number 1 slegers.
The man of the match was brilliant, considering doctored Aussie wickets.

Dave,

Congratulations, it was a Titanic battle and your boys did manage a draw.

I just can't wait to read tomorrow morning's papers to see who they are going to blame for Australia's failure.

It's a pity the journalists aren't sent out to play in the field. I'm sure they'd quickly change their 'we know best' attitudes !

Well done to South Africa !

Your last sentence doesn't even deserve a comment !

Good game, no winner but lots of guts shown by both sides !

Tombro it has always been doctored wickets in Australia, made to suit their pace attack, especially Perth and Brisbane.
Then when Warne was playing. they did the same to Sydney and Melbourne.
The only ground that is difficult to do is Hobart.
Kevin Mitchell senior even admitted that he used to doctor the Gabba pitch a few years ago.
South Africa stand a good chance of winning starting Friday, that's if Styn can manage to fire, as his figures at the moment are not that good.
Please leave out Tahir. ohmy.gif
Good result for England in India, a ten wicket win.

Only caught the highlights last night but it was an excellent performance.

Now 1-1 and all to play for should be like a home game for us in Perth tongue.gif

There are many international cricket matches that are lost by the visitors because, let's face it, the home team is used to playing on their own wickets and has an advantage.

When will someone come up with a reliable "drop-in" wicket, which would be neutral for either team? I've heard of these wickets being used but not internationally.

I have been a follower of cricket for 30 years but the current state of NZ cricket puts me right off! Have to say though, NZ going a bit better in Sri Lanka. They scored 412 and have Sri Lanka 120/5 ......... but can they keep it up?

The whole of SA were hoping we could keep them at bay for the last 2 hours. What a debut for Faf Du Plessis who was sent over as a replacement 78 and 110 not out to get us a draw, brilliant.

Yes it sure was.
But Wait ohmy.gif
AS I said earlier, the wicket has been made for the quickies.
Australia believe it or not is talking about 6 fast men, dumping Lyon.
Fancy bringing back Mitchell Johnston, that is a joke and an insult to a lot of up and coming Aussie bowlers.
I do hope that he plays, as the guy is a complete jerk.

Mitch,

Not sure you've really noticed !

I think any cricket fan throughout the world would have to admit that the South African fast bowling attack that started out this test had a superior record to Australia's fast bowling attack.

So, if the pitch was doctored for the Australian attack, surely that had to be to the advantage of the South Africans !

As for Perth, I'm sure both teams will be relying on a full pace attack so what way should the curator go to satisfy your claims of doctoring pitches to the advantage of the Australians ?

Ruthless England wrap up victory
England complete a memorable 10-wicket win over India in the second Test in Mumbai to level the four-match series.

Well done to the England squad for leveling the series. Now we look forward to the 3rd test in Calcutta. Test cricket at it's best

ave got my opinion as well

I still can't believe it - New Zealand has just beaten Sri Lanka in the second test. Most unexpected but to give credit where it is due, NZ did play well. Don't quite know what motivated them - maybe the new coach - but well done anyway. Maybe they can go on and win the series.

I've just heard about Ricky Ponting's impending retirement. He has been an amazing player and captain, a tremendous role model for kids and a terrific ambassador for Australia. Good luck for the future, Ricky.

By all accounts SKL a good effort by the Kiwis, Sri Lanka are not the easiest team to beat especially on their own patch.

Its sad to hear Ricky Pointing call it a day but its been obvious for a couple of years now he was not the same player.

Well part three started in Perth and I am quietly confident even with Ricky Pointings retirement announcment to spur on the Aussies thumbup.gif

Helped along by pathetic decisions by G Smith to bat first again, ( the Gabba being the first one)
Perth have had a fair bit of rain and the pitch would have suited the quickies bowling first. (just like the Gabba)
S.A going in with 7 batsmen and batting first on this wicket is committing suicide.
Well done for one of the best overseas player seen here in years making a great score, DU Plessis.
G.Smith I am afraid has lost the plot in this series.
Kiwi Lass, New Zealand are a very good side side.
At least they do not bowl under arm. ohmy.gif
