I take it there was a full days play cause happy's. gone missing...

Looking at the Cards looks like the Poms surrended meekly again and Uzi and Smudge have us mowing them down...
Reckon that lost time could be crucial today , got this feeling the Poms might hang on today
Yeah i just had a peak online Poms 8/178 ...48 overs remaining....Hobbo should be breaking into that rain dance about now....or maybe call it off cause it's too hot...

Joe Root had the opportunity to endear himself to the Australian crowd by bravely coming out and taking on the 9th wicket - ala Graeme Smith who was universally HATED buy Aussie crowds until that moment of bravery turned everyone around.

Shows the character of the bloke, and the team sadly.

Insipid Limp crap from the English.

Said before the first test, both teams had unreliable batting line ups, but only one team had the bowling attack capable of taking 20 wickets on more than a couple of occasions.

South Africa are very similar to us, super bowling attack, with a very unreliable batting lineup. Be very interesting to see if Steve Smith golden run continues. He certainly will not have the time to play his shots that he did against the Poms. Facing 135km bowling to 145km plus is a big leap, but I guess he has plundered every other attack in world cricket so why shouldn’t SA be any different. Anyway should be a great series

Haha you are not seriously still banging on with this narrative? Fair dinkum the bloke has scored runs everywhere. If he wasnt in this squad we'd be ranked outside the top 5 at test level yet you feel the need to continue with your doubting?

Aussies are flat trackers. Have been ever since Warne, McGrath etc retired.

We beat the Poms

Anyway I hear the serving judge for Ben Stokes will be a certain Judge Boof Lehmann , expecting Stokes to see hard labour with an extremely large cell mate who can bat left or right handed (if you get my drift ;) )until after the 2019 Ashes series

Rangas , you just can't trust them
