Krejza is in, Watson 12th man.

I'll be disapointed if Haddin doesn't say 'Bolwled Warnie' at least once during Krejza's first over - there won't be any easier opportunity for some nice clean sledging than that :)

I see no reason why the boks batsmen will score runs this time around. I't the same old faces

The series will come down to a battle of the bowlers. They do seem to have a lot of strike power, especially at Perth.

Why do we look after visiting teams by giving them the best conditions. We should be playing their fast bowlers in Adelaide

All I can gather from my poll is that 55% of the voters don't know much about cricket  :lol:

Only joking.

Experience should be a factor for the Boks batters now Wily, there might be some names that we have seen before but their record through recent yes suggests they've been on the improve, the 3 looks good and in form and they have one of the best all rounders in the game today. Agree, if they aim up under the away pressure they look to have a very good bowling attack. Have been looking forward to this test for some time, I hope both sides aim up and we get a good one.

Kallis has only had the one good test innings with the bat over the last 12 months triples, he's woefully out of form. His last 20 times at bat shows highs of 132, 74, 64 with 13 innings under 20 - compared to his 20 innings before that where he got 6x50's and another 5x100's.

As for his bowling... they've hardly been giving him a run lately, more often than not he bowls less than 20 overs in a test - he makes Symonds' figures look good at the moment   :biggrin:

He does seem to have the habit of taking key wickets though, it's just they usually reward him with a rest and throw Steyn back in at the new batsman from what I've heard.

So what will SA do when they win the toss today... I assume we're still sending Ponting out there with his awesome two-up skills to hand the opposition first choice?

Surely they'll jump in and bat, although given they have a 'mind coach', I guess anything is possible if they try to over analyse the situation and are drooling over the WACA bounce.

Who ever wins the toss will bat, I hope it's Australia as I want to see this Boks bowling first up on a deck that might well be helpful, and I want to see if so if Hayden and co can aim up.

I want to watch the first race at Eagle Farm at 1228pm but I'm afraid I might miss Hayden going out at 1233pm.

He lasted longer than I thought he would :what:

2/14. Gee they were good balls that did the work.

I wish Hayden would quit before being sacked. He deserves that at least.

Before the game started TERRY ALDERMAN said the pitch was a real disappointment.

He thought it had been made to last the entire 5 days, so that the "CORPORATES" could enjoy  the weekend.

Nah, he's got the MCG on boxing day next Grats - you can mark him down for a 100 there already, his record in the boxing day test is Bradman-like, maybe they should just bring him back for that game each year  :)

Ironically, in hindsight, this would have been a great toss for Ponting to have lost   :lol:

As I said in the other forum, sad as it is, Hayden's time has come. Can't see him being dropped but I'll be astounded if he doesn't announce his retirement by the end of this series.
