    Michael Clarke batting very well on day one, but no-one else really getting anything done for Australia.
    South Africa all out for 96 on day two! Eh?
    And now Australia's SIXTH wicket has just fallen, for EIGHTEEN RUNS, still only on day 2.

    WTF?

    At this time, 15 wickets in total have gone down since lunch, with only 48 runs being scored. You'd think they are playing in a public park...

    Good god, 23 wickets in a day. That's gotta be some sort of record

    Look on the bright side - at least this way nobody will accuse cricket of taking whole days and nothing ever happening in that time.

    Me, I'm just miffed that nobody's broadcasting it here. I want to see this.

    What a weird game of cricket.
    A below par performance by the Aussies, except for Clarke and Marsh. Then a crazy day with awesome bowling and some really bad decisions by a bunch of batsmen.
    Then great batting by Smith and Amla to win the test after 2.3 days. An aggregate of 168 overs!

    Very weird.

    Smith has a pretty decent record now as the only player to make 4 centuries in 4th innings successful run chaces, with an aggregate of over 1000 runs and an average of over 85.
    He's a tiger...

    Haha, I just realised. Jacques Rudolph and Michael Clarke were both out twice in one day, all without there being any follow on in effect.

    Eek!
