A score of 450+ for any side with Broad batting as high as #9 can't be bad - a nice but rather fortunate comedy cameo from him, by the way. However, it took a lot of South African ineptitude (in the field, bowlers overstepping the line and some poor decision making) and some good fortune for some of our batsmen to achieve it.

It'll be interesting to see how South Africa fare on a wicket that is just starting to show some inconsistent bounce now.

That was fun. 458. Reckon pitch will take spin on days 4 & 5 plus will keep low. May be a match winning score.

Warne and Swann both on a relatively slow 23..

I'm going to use my 10,000th post to celebrate that six from Jimmy. I've rarely heard a shot sound better off the bat. His first ever Test six off a fast bowler too.

South Africa have been a bit dopey in this match, the failure to review Broad's early lbw a perfect example and cost them a lot. Broad's a walking wicket but if you let him off he scores very quickly.

So far in this match:

Wickets in first 16 overs of new balls = 8
Wickets in overs 17-80 = 3

And congratulations on 10,000 posts.

Something of an understatement.

Current partnership 54 runs, 15.0 overs, RR: 3.60 (Amla 21, Elgar 33)

Could be a long afternoon.

Not been on here much recently. Jock gnawed his own left arm off at the elbow yet?

Edit: still in denial instead.

Dodgy SA middle order to fall apart or surprise us?

TMS suggesting that Rashid not playing as Root doesn't fancy him.
