Yep, these are always fierce contents! Looking forward to some fire. Wonder if Starc can emulate Mitchell Johnson’s domination over there...

Lyon and Starc clean up SA. Will be a big test to win first up in the series.

And Mitch Marsh...excellent innings. What a shame he didn't get the ton.

Channelling 12th Man Chappelli, Yes Tony,it is a real pity and disappointment he didn’t make the ton.

Went the old tonk and didn’t quite clear Mid On.

Who said this decades ago when dismissed playing for SA(South Australia)?

“That’s the last bloody time I go the slog,when I’m in the 90’s!”(Whilst slamming his Bat on the dressing room floor). :lol: :mrgreen:

On the one hand,Warner acted like a complete Tool after Running Out De Villiers with Lyon.

On the other,De Koch slagged off Warner’s Missus.Both acted Disgracefully!

Lyon didn’t have to drop the ball on De Villiers either.Completely Uncalled for!

2nd Test;

AUS 243 (D. Warner 63, K. Rabada 5-96, L. Ngidi 3-51, V. Philander 2-25) v SAf 1/39

Any chance Bancroft can convert a start any time soon?

And Smith is fast becoming the new WATTO in DRS. FFS, accept the umpire’s decision occasionally you f****** muppet.

Can't believe I thought test started today! #-o

Just watched highlights, far out, the LBW against Smith is ridiculous. As plum as it gets.

The real problem is the 2 reviews. If there was only one it'd only be used (hopefully) if the ump had made a shocker, rather than players just having a look for the he'll of it.

How good are these pitches though, bowlers can actually take wickets. f****** great.

2nd Test;

AUS 243 (D. Warner 63, K. Rabada 5-96, L. Ngidi 3-51, V. Philander 2-25) & 239 (U. Khawaja 75, M. Marsh 45, K. Rabada 6-54, L. Ngidi 2-24, K. Maharaj 2-90) defeated by SAf 382 (A. de Villiers 126*, D. Elgar 57, H. Amla 56, P. Cummins 3-79, M. Marsh 2-26, J. Hazlewood 2-98) & 4/102 (M. Lyon 2-44)

It’s funny how de Villiers had only scored 264 runs from his last 10 innings before our series (@26.40), but has so far scored 197 runs for once out - a f****** run out caused by his partner. Do we not have a f****** clue how to bowl to this c***? Averages 52 against us while averaging 42 v England, and under 40 v Bangladesh, India and New Zealand.

Will Rabada Cop a Suspension?

Haven’t heard any news yet,so I await with keen interest what the verdict will be.

He’s been suspended for the last 2 tests. I’m spewing. I like the way he plays the game. His in your face attitude serves a purpose to our blokes that “you’re not as good as you think you are”. But that’s just me. He did overstep the code of conduct and has to pay a price.

There’s more sparring in this series than there ever was between Mrs Slocombe and Mr Lucas at Grace Brothers! :roll: :lol:

Agree, he is great for the game. 9 x 5w innings out of 50! :shock:

Little bit of speccing he might get off in light of what happened lately in the India v Sri Lanka 20/20 Series.

Or what didn’t happen,such as a Suspension or 2. :roll:
