Amazed that Dale bowled 10 on the trot yesterday.........there's life in them old bones!!!

He wanted that Michelle. If he pulls up sore they will all be bagging Faf for letting him bowl an elongated spell

Stopped watching at 8 down and needing plenty. Fair effort by the Sri Lankans but I expect them to get thoroughly hammered next start

I think it's true to say the nation is in shock

Vernon needs to lay off the pies

As I say every year. Why do we waste our time playing tests in Durban.

The pitch is shot, we lose at least an hours play everyday, and no one pitches up.

To be fair if the other seamers couldn't get wicket Vern may not have made much difference.

Given Vern is primarily a Test player if he wants to extend his international career he will need to start presenting in better condition or the soft tissue injuries will keep occurring. Extra pudding and back related hamstrings aren't mutually exclusive.

Insanity: doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting a different result.

Thanks for making us Aussies feel better. We have just lost a home series to an Asian team for the first time as well and it is nice to have company

It's a fucking disgrace. No balls from any of the batsmen apart from Faf and Quin. The genius who decided Bavuma is a no 4 is probably the same twat who thought Duminy is a no 4

Interesting to see what the selectors do with Amla and to a lesser degree Elgar. Amla is nearly 36 and clearly in decline (as is his batting average Ponting style). He might be saved by the lack of suitable alternatives and his good overall record but on his current form it might be time to throw a kid in.

The bowlers should get a whack as well. They weren't given much to defend but they weren't bowling to Sangakarra and Jayawardene. Steyn averaged nearly 40 for the series, Sri Lanka lost both tosses and conceded first innings leads in both games.

Elgar was never going to be part of the squad. Markram should be an automatic choice.

Interesting news on Duanne Olivier. Can't only be filthy lucre driving that decision 

"safety" has become a big issue again..........especially if he has little kids - players are away from home for weeks at a time & need to have some "peace of mind".

Yorkshire has those grooming gangs comprised exclusively of Pakistanis who the police refuse to crack down on because it might be racist. Better keep the kids inside there as well.

It tells me there is something seriously wrong in the Protea camp.

Lost some good ones to Kolpak lately - Abbott, de Lange and now Olivier. Apparently there are 40 Saffers on Kolpak deals in English cricket. The ECB need to be helping CSA out here (which may be possible post Brexit it that sticks)

Olivier last played in 2017 & i don't remember him setting the place alight so now maybe he feels Ngidi is coming back & there's no place for him?

That he was very successful this season just rubs salt in the CSA wound -
