    What happened to their cricket is what happened to our Rugby. I for one am loving every minute of it, and long may their crapness continue. Hope they dont do some WC winning redemption. But man India are so so so strong in ODI format.

    Looks like they are going to walk this.
    We were terrible midway in our innings. The Pakis did bowl well, but we should've done better.
    Only when the blood runs and the shackles restrain, will the sheep then awake. When all is lost.

    I always felt we are 30 runs short in this game.

    There a was 10 over period where I felt our batsmen were playing for their hundreds and not for the team. Hopefully, this is a lession learned!

    Duane's death bowling needs a bit of work. Faf should have been with him between balls, talking him through the delivery, helping to limit the runs.

    Good spectator game though, fluid cricket.

    But we'll see how the Pakis go on the surface before judging too harshly.
    Amla's ton while great was completely selfish. You could see he was preserving more than attacking especially during the middle overs. As senior batsman, he should have attacked and let the other guy get the ton

    Also, this would have increased the number of runs and SA might have had a chance... Pak were just cruising

    I cant agree with this analysis of Amlas innings.

    He got 108 off 120 balls, strike rate of 90. He was the lynchpin of the innings. The other should have been playing around him. Hendricks was a bit slow as well on this wicket.

    Nah, we were 2 down at the end and made 266. That's a very poorly paced innings. There was no rebuilding phase required, we should've upped the risk early in the middle overs and that's where we lost the game. 108* off 120 balls is not good enough in the modern game unless we were 50/4 at some point and needed a rock to bat around.

    That was a +300 pitch. Pakistan didn't even really need to up the tempo themselves.

  10. Saying Thanks:
