I see. So you never criticise anything..no opinion on things? A very rare person. Sorry but I do have opinions on many things and on a cricket site the sparse crowd at a major test match is worth commenting on. I only made a generalised point. Yes..it does reflect on the society to me more than the state of test cricket..incidentally this test looks riveting..wish I was there.

Yeah thanks very much for putting words in my mouth.

I never said sparce crowds wasn't something worth commenting on - its clearly a reflection of how Test cricket is percieved through much of the world. What i do take exception to this notion that it can't possibly be the product that is the problem.

Good start for the saffas, we need some wickets fast or they might end up with a 100 run 1st innings lead.
This ****ing brass bands putting off our attack, its throwing our line and length off FFS.

There's some double standards here I think. How would you draft guidelines to make an exception for one individual? On the general point, I would disagree strongly. Angry send-offs are just ugly macho posturing, and any grown man should be beyond that kind of thing. The emotion is entirely justified, but that's a private matter. Being grown-up means that you can feel something without letting it take you over and turn you into a berk.

The problem surely lies with the people thousands of miles away who prefer test match cricket to other forms of cricket.

Another classic Elgar 50, brought up edging one through the gap at 3rd slip.

He makes Cook look stylish!

No..the problem is no one gives a xxxx. I guess test cricket will continue for my lifetime so I may as well not bother about the problem and just ignore it's slow death. I'm a hypocrite too..says he turning over to Manure v Liverpool.

In any case, Corbs old thing, it would be a shame to let <<insert pet hate here>> spoil one's distant enjoyment of this fine match. SA are playing it nice and slowly in traditional test-match fashion. In recent decades I fancy that the series between these two sides have been among the best ones around.

Indeedy. I'm over it. Enjoying it as best I can with dodgy wi fi in the wilds of cornwall.

I see the CSA officials have covered themselves in glory yet again. But it's Warner, so it's okay to publicly humiliate his wife.
A verbal send off is one thing but in this case there was physical contact which raises the offence up a level. That is the sort of thing that needs stamping out or it could end up in on field brawls.

Did you see the incident? It was a million miles away from a brawl. Smith barely registered the contact and looked more befuddled by it than aggressive.

Anyway, I walked 5kms in humidity to the only bar that shows Cricket and was rewarded with Dean Elgar blocking for 3 hours. I mean, I don't even mind if Saffers make a huge first innings score, but can he just get out and let Devilliers make the runs? Truly excruciating.

At 180-4, SA are not that far ahead of Aus in their innings, though one of the wickets being Rabada makes a difference. New ball close to due now will be an interesting spell of action, no doubt.

When was the last on field cricket brawl you saw at international level?
Youd have to be a liberal.
There was absolutely nothing in the incident, it was a brush on the shoulder, its a disgrace if Rabada gets 2 games, the worlds turning into soft cocks.
Are men allowed to be men any more or should we all just act like women?.
Harden the **** up and get off the estrogen.

Didn't say it was a brawl, just that if things like that isn't stamped on it could end up that way. The commentators said that SA should have taken advantage when conditions were good for batting. Later when the ball started reversing and batting became difficult they hadn't got many on the board.

Classic off spinner dismissal by Lyon.

AB playing on a different wicket to everyone else, but then he is best in show.

Not much in this. Saffers a notch ahead.

Seven overs short on the day’s play. Was there a weather interruption? If no, then that is a worse problem ICC should be fretting over rather than a minor bit of argy-bargy by Rabada

Australia probably marginally ahead. SA lost a big opportunity to get a decent lead, but batted too timidly early. Surely there is someone better than de Bruyn. Australia bowlers contained the weak batting line-up well.

AB a class above the rest though. Gosh they missed him against England.
