Currently the afternoon session of the Boxing Day test at Centurion (somehow they’ve ruined it to call it SuperSport park).

Saffers in batting and are 111-4

And as I type this du Plessis edges to Root in the slips, 111-5, Nelson strikes again.

Compley forgotton it was being played

As just said in the studio at Tea, we need to get De Kock out quickly…


De Kock with some fine strokes deep into the covers… followed by a little tickle off the edge

Curran has got de Kock 5 short of his century, good bowling…



Had hoped we would have got de Kock for 69

Rory Burns has injured his ankle playing footy and is doubtful.

Bring in a hypnotist, convince Burns that he’s Gordon Greenidge and watch him score a double ton in boundaries. Sorted.

Bloody hell! and it was Root who crocked him, just as the papers were suggesting Burns woulfd be the one to replace him as captain.
