    Well the second test has started with all of us waiting with baited breath to see if the carnage would repeat.

    Not surprisingly after clarke saying heads will roll, the only changes were injury forced (tosser).

    Sth africa won the otss , chose to bat, and were 4-241 until they lost 6 wickets for 25 runs finishing up at 266.

    BAd light stopped the aussies coming out to bat.

    bowling:
    MG Johnson 16.1 4 67 1 4.14 (1nb)
    PJ Cummins 15 3 38 1 2.53
    PM Siddle 15 4 69 3 4.60
    SR Watson 3.5 1 13 1 3.39
    NM Lyon 13 2 52 2 4.00
    MEK Hussey 4 0 10 0 2.50 (2w)
    MJ Clarke 4 1 6 2 1.50


    Again johnson was 'meh' by the stats but clarke did well and cummings wasn't overawed by the moment. To answer another question, I don't think he is too young to play test cricket.

    Hopefully our batsman (and Haddin) can actually give us a first innings lead.

    We need it - we will be a batsman down, the pitch should yield at least 350 runs with our reduced batting lineup

    Well, we have a slim lead.

    Still annoying to be 0-169 to only then lose 10 - 122.

    Punter a duck (time's up?)

    Haddin 16

    johnson 38 (not out).

    And my electricity just went out!


    Annnnd we're back.

    Cummins has produced teh youngest Aussie 5 for in the second innings to give us a fighting chance with 6/79.

    Crap start with Watson gone 2nd ball then hughes for 11 but punter and kwaja got us through to 3/160 half way there with 7 wickets on the last day. Test is ours to lose.
