Looks as if the interview was actually a press conference. Scyld Berry's Telegraph piece echoes what Dobell says Bayliss said practically word for word.

Yes you pick the best available not critique what you have that won the last test....Does anyonbe REALLY that Bayliss said this

So England batting first on a very hot day. SA right up against it. The bowling looks weakened while the batting still problematic.

Kagiso Rabada is in for Steyn, Chris Morris for Abbott, and Quinton de Kock for JP Duminy, with AB de Villiers handing over the gloves.

Anderson is back!

With Rabada and Morris coming in there is some greenness with this SA attack. Big onus on Morkel I think.

No scoring pressure now we have won the toss. Bat for 3 days please.


I note MPV has called out Moeen for only turning up when the team is on top - he's right.

Hmm, I guess the batting improves and less pressure on AB, but having Chris Morris is in is not a a good sign.

Pretty good start so far from England. There doesn't seem to be many demons in the pitch and the ball has barely beaten the bat. Meanwhile as I type Hales has a flash outside off, but off a no ball.

That is the beauty of being an all rounder like at brum in the ashes where he completely changed the course of the match.

Who was the last England spinner who did not do better with runs on the board?

Excellent start by England. The pitch looks good with bounce and cracks in 40 degrees. As I said in the previous match "good luck batting last vs mo"

India at Trent Bridge saw him off with sticks of rhubarb.

Hales wears one from Rabada. A lot of his runs have come through midwicket so far. Saffer bowlers need patience in just hanging it outside off

Some good bowling from SA, but not enough discipline. They've fed Cook a lot of his favourite shots, whilst Hales has made it through some early pressure and looks good now.

And yet Moeen still has a better fourth innings average than Swann. I do worry for your health if Moeen gets another man of the match award and God forbid man of the series.

Saffers bowling far too straight. We should be 350 plus by the end of the day given their spinner went round the park on the difficult Durban pitch.

Cook got carried away a bit there didn't he. Great catch. Really special that one.

Yeah top catch. What sort of brings out the usual pessimist in me, that I certainly wasn't for a brief period is that we could now lose a couple of wickets here quickly and the situation will look a lot more ordinary.

Amazing catch by Morris on debut after a solid start from England. Maybe that will bring the Saffers to life?

Happy New Year All. Why do you think that slop? I ask because I haven't seen much of Morris/Viljoen (or Rabada if it comes to that). I think maybe this ineperienced SA bowling attack is slow to learn that it is unwise to bowl on the pads of either Hales or Cook.

Wow! That was a stunner of a catch! And on debut.

Morris' catch a mirror image of Stokes at Trent Bridge, brilliant

Morris has actually bowled well this morning, but he's not got much in his arsenal and I think he'll be fodder for significant periods. Radaba could be good, I've only seen him in LOIs really and it's hard to judge in those conditions (where he's excelled) but I'm doubtful his style will trouble test batsmen for long enough, it's different when you don't have to score off every ball.

I have to admit, it's quite amusing seeing Compton get criticism (on cricinfo) for scoring slowly yet again. There's no reason why he shouldn't against this bowling attack, they will get wayward eventually and he can cash in then, like the last test just a few days ago. Plus he doesn't have cook dragging him down the other end.

Exactly. In the last match he scored quicker than hales, Taylor and cook anyway! Wear them down. Remember hales got 4 from 17 balls vs the openers. Then accelerated vs different bowler. People want hitting from ball one.
