First topic message reminder :

Yeah, the fielding certainly has left alot to be desired. Still the chances are being created and things must surely stick soon.

Has Prior been stumped? 3rd umpire... I think he's in but it's tight. Millimetres in it. NOT OUT!

Another gone?

Well the lower middle did a good job. The top guys need to apologise to them, badly let the down.

NOT OUT.

Never expected England to be threatening 300 ...

oh no stumping appeal...
Surely that is too close to give out ? Yes ...phew

Seen some amazing matches over the years but this one is right up there with a certain evening session at Headingley 31 years ago...and I never thought I'd say that .

Second new ball ...

Tremendous fight from England.

I certainly give some credit to the captain for that.

Might be worth remembering when the inquest starts, whatever the result.

Fook's sake, we're going to the 3rd umpire again, this time for a run-out. He's safe.

Anderson with a smart tip and run, Prior safely home. Prior then times the pants off one through backward point for four but again, can't keep the strike. 53 to win Very Happy

So wish we had a guy like that Tino chap, or indeed that Safa pair who once scored a huge amount for the last.

Well played to many of the England team. Really good effort trying to back up a dire effort from the top.

Well done to SA for your status as clearly the best side in the world.

Well done to the England youngsters for starting to give some options.

Time to move past Kp and for Strauss to go now.
