"How shit you must be if I got you out twice!"

Surprise, surprise

Ashy P is the first wicket to fall. Fourth ball. The Saffers are 1-1.

Surely, Hersch would have done better. But of course now that Makhaya has been dropped, they dare not drop another coloured player lest the politicians go all loco on their asses.

Hi politicians, Hersch is also a player of colour. And a better batsman. Let them pick Herschelle for fuck's sakes! And get your fucking nose out of sports!

Sensing my anger, Swannyg66 has just dropped his namesake. He tries so hard to get in my good books, the poor dear.

Read through the Aussie scorecard. That'll cheer you up. LUCKILY, I am a big Asif fan, so don't feel as bad as I might. I've been expecting him to go for the throat since the series started.

Come'on, be honest, do you actually think that a 36-year old is the solution?

BTW, shouldn't Swann be in your good books, considering he had dropped Smith in the 2nd over?

Frie-del Frie-del Frie-del!

Business as usual.
Ash-Hash no big use or no use at all, G-Smith making a few runs, major workload on Kallis, AB, The Boucher, and Dale.

Strauss saw grass and bowled, unlike some hairy garden gnome who would probably not even bowl if he was standing in the middle of a forest, but the Saffas are trying hard not to embarrass themselves.

Vim, I was laughing my head off!! But I get this feeling Pakistan will be 97 all out :P.

CT, yes I do!! Neil McKenzie is the other choice but by the time he gets settled, Saffers will be all out because they have to score all his runs as well as their own. Alviro Peterson is also an option, but I don't think he is quite ready yet. They could take the gamble, except they HAVE to win the next two. And Hersch is a match winner. Plus, look at who did well for them: a 33 and a 34 year old.

Wes, haha. Yes Dale, let's put in Paul and Morne there too!
