Day 2 - 3rd Test - S.Africa v Australia - Newlands

Day 2 .. Aus finished at 331-3, with some brave cricket by Michael Clarke.

A little rain expected in the afternoon, but, clear for last 3 days of the match, so, shouldn't affect outcome.

My book is fucked .. Gonna turn the page.

Drinks .. 381-3 .. Still scoring quick, thou Abbott has bowled super. Steyn not in pitch, looks unlikely to play a part in this match.

S.Africa 20

Aus 2.0

Draw 2.18


Lunch - windy as anything, and mountain obscured by cloud .. It's raining on mountain, according to the idiots on the radio.

Aus 434-4 .. I reckon they look for 575 .. And put SA in, after a Tea.

S.Africa 23

Aus 2.06

Draw 2.10


39 overs in, and rain arrives and doesn't budge. 51 overs lost in the day .. 2 were lost on Day 1, so, despite 30 mins early start, day 3/4/5, overs being lost from the game.

Aus 494-7

Steyn may bowl in second inngs ..

The batting line-up for S.Africa does look a bit stronger, with Elgar and Du Plessis .. So, maybe they can hang on for a draw, .. Hard to see them winning.

S.Africa 17

Aus 2.34

Draw 1.90

Book still record losses ...
