Australia and the South African Proteas do battle in the 2nd Test of the Series in Australia at the Adelaide Oval, Adelaide.

The game takes place mostly in the middle of the night for South Africans, so live updates will not be given accross the board, but updates will be done in the mornings.

On a belter pitch, Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. After a massive start by Australia with the bat on Day 1, hitting close to 500 runs, South Africa was always going to be on the back foot. A super fight back followed by South Africa and on Day 5 of the Test South Africa’s Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers still had a mountain to climb to save the match with South Africa on 77 / 4, still 355 runs short and only 6 wickets in hand. Each batsman pitched in, dug deep, and Faf du Plessis (playing in his maiden Test) held out right until the end, seeing 4 wickets fall around him.

The match ended in a draw, well saved by South Africa.

 

 

Australia: 550 All Out & 267 / 8 Declared (70 overs)

South Africa: 388 All Out & 248 / 8 (148 overs)

    95/99: Soos hul sê, Kallis met een been is beter as baie spelers met twee bene. Beste krieketspeler ooit.

    Dalk hierdie span:

    Smith
    Petersen
    Amla
    Kallis
    AB
    Faf
    McLaren ?
    Peterson
    Dale
    Vernon
    Morkel

  • 102

    I guess it depends on whether Vernon is fit again. If he is then he must obviously play.

    I’d be inclined to look at Pieterson as an option for a spinner all rounder. It’s a difficult decision though. i would drop Imraan and Rudolph, that’s for sure.

    So it will be

    Smith
    Peterson
    Amla
    Kallis (only if he recovers well enough to at least bat freely)
    AB
    Faf
    Steyn
    Morkel
    McLaren
    Elgar/Pieterson
    Vernon/Kleinveld.

    Not sure on the Elgar/Pieterson option. Will have to think about that.

  • 103

    100 @ Sharks_forever:
    Hope Vernon is okay, if he and Kallis can’t play that would be a massive loss. Not sure where Kallis injury is thought it was his hand, then have not really being taking notice of the injury list in the cricket.

    Elgar probably the one to select for Perth being inform and can bowl.

  • 104

    @ Stormersboy:
    Boet? Perth is a fast bowlers paradise. play Elgar as he is a brilliant batsmen and a very good spinner, you only need a spinner to do a holding job, you might even find the Aussies wont play Lyon,

    Faf is also a leg spinner that to my mind should have been used more in the past test.

    We must play atleast 4 seamers so Steyn, Morkel, Vernon/Ryan, Rory

    If we play this team we bat strong till 7 and Vernon or Ryan Maclaren the all rounder at 8

    Then Steyn. Morkel and Rory can atleast hold a bat,

    Incase Kallis cant play then bring back Jacques Rudolph

  • 105

    @ Puma:

    Pooms hiyas bro, Kallis has a hammy problem, he pulled up with a hammy in bowling his 4th over.

  • 106

    smit’s proud record still stands
    ..
    we still havent lost a test in which he scores a century!!

  • 107

    #106
    scored :oops:

  • 108

    Lets take it all players are able to play. I would play the following

    1 Smith
    2 Petersen
    3 Amla
    4 Kallis
    5 Faf 2+3(Leg Spinner)
    6 AB
    7 Dean Elgar(Off Spinner)
    8 Vernon (All rounder)
    9 Steyn
    10 Small Change
    11 MOrkel

    12thman Pietersen

  • 109

    @ Sharks_forever:
    OK I hear you.

    Don’t have to be so snarky about it!

    LOL just kidding, I was wondering about why we didn’t use Faf more, not that he didn’t pull his weight or anything. Just thought we’d play him a bit more than we did.

    Haven’t seen that much of Elgar, looking forward to seeing him play.

    As you say, depends on Vernon and Kallis,

  • 110

    @ Stormersboy:
    Don’t be so Broke back about it :lol: Jk old bean….

    My gut feel is they did not bowl him much as it was his first test and the pressure, Also he is mostly used at the Titans to bowl in the one dayer’s and not the 4 day games.

    I reckon he is from what I have seen way good enough to dop a holding Job, Elgar is a good Off spinner and gets quite a bit of turn, he would have done well on the pitch this past match.

    Perth though is about the Speedsters, so we must hope we are all fit and ready, the team I posted would have been gigantic had Kallis been able to bowl, meaning 5 Quickies and 2 spinners now it will be 4 and 2

  • 111

    @ Sharks_forever:
    Ja ok that makes sense.

    What other quickies do we have in the greater squad?

  • 112

    Wow this was certainly a very pleasant surprise to wake up to this morning, well done Proteas, must have shown a lot of guts and patience to bat through the day, after a disapointing time in England this is a very welcome boost from Faf du Plessis and hopefully will boost his test career loads from here on, we need batsmen to take over from Kallis and also contribute on the odd occasion when Amla Smith and de Villiers go cheaply.

    Match Review on the Aussie Official Cricket website

    South Africa survived a late bowling barrage to salvage a draw in a dramatic conclusion to the second Test against Australia at Adelaide Oval on Monday.

    The tourists lost only four wickets on the final day to finish the match on 8-248, trailing the hosts by 182 runs.

    They owed the draw to debutant and man-of-the match Faf du Plessis (110 not out) who survived two reversed dismissals in a gruelling seven hour stay at the crease.

    The Proteas were made to work for the draw as stumps loomed with Peter Siddle (4-54) setting up a scintillating finish after the dismissals of tail-enders Dale Steyn and Rory Kleinveldt for a duck and three respectively.

    Australia could sense victory following Siddle’s fireworks but du Plessis and Morne Morkel (eight not out) denied the home side a chance to lead the series 1-0.

    The hosts had declared and set the Proteas a victory target of 430 on Sunday following a first-innings total of 550 and second-innings effort of 8-267.

    Du Plessis’ marathon 68-over partnership with AB de Villiers (33) blunted Australia’s bowling attack before the former combined for a 99-run stand with Jacques Kallis (46) who batted bravely with a hamstring injury.

    After resuming the day at 4-77, the visitors showed little intent to get the scoreboard ticking.

    Australia had a chance to dismiss du Plessis on 15 when he popped a delivery just short of Ed Cowan, but it was all they could squeeze out of the visitors as several maidens followed.

    Frustrated with the Proteas’ ultra-defensive approach, Michael Clarke (0-34) tried to find a breakthrough and almost did so with two dismissals that required reviews.

    Du Plessis looked plumb in front after padding up and offering no shot to Clarke, but replays showed the ball had pitched outside leg.

    The Test rookie continued the grind before he was given out once more after being trapped in his crease by Clarke.

    But to Australia’s dismay, the ball did not strike du Plessis’ boot or pad.

    Du Plessis landed in hot water two more times following a stirring spell from Nathan Lyon (3-49), before he reached his second 50 of the Test directly after lunch with a boundary wide of gully.

    Australia responded and had hopes of cleaning up South Africa’s lower-order when de Villiers’ laborious knock – the longest innings in Test history in terms of deliveries faced without a boundary – ended with Siddle’s breakthrough, but the Proteas battened down the hatches.

    Short of answers, Clarke threw Dave Warner (0-29) and Rob Quiney (0-4) into the action, but the experiment failed as the Proteas’ run-rate increased.

    Du Plessis hustled to his hundred after tea as Siddle and Ben Hilfenhaus (1-65) combined to shackle the South African batsman on 98 for a number of balls.

    Siddle was particularly hostile as he stared down du Plessis after rocketing in a yorker that caused the right-hander to fall just as he got his bat down in time to block the ball.

    Then the Victorian found the edge with a delivery that fell short of second slip.

    Du Plessis eventually reached his century after an exhausting 310 balls, only for Kallis to edge Lyon straight to short leg, shy of a 56th Test half-century.

    Siddle ensured there was plenty of late drama when he sent Steyn packing after he pushed at a full toss down low to the diving Quiney, before rattling Kleinveldt’s stumps with a ripping in-swinging yorker.

    We must not forget, our bowling attack was seriously effected by injuries in the past test.

    In the first innings of Australia Steyn pulled up with a Hamstring strain, Kallis as we know took 2 wickets in his first 3 overs, in the 4th over he had to leave the field with a worse hamstring problem that Steyn.

    Vernon Philander could not even start the match due to back spasms before the match even started, and of course Imraan was in the poorest form thinkable.

    This means out of 5 bowlers we only had 3 fully fit Morne, Rory(1st test) and Imraan.

    In the final test Aussie is loading their team with fast bowlers and I have no doubt they will not even play a spinner in Perth.
