Declaration

I think we have enough runs, the saffers will have to create a world record to win. If they do that good on them ! What we need to do is watch the weather conditions and if we feel that the weather will help us to get a couple of wickets first thing in the morning we should declare.

If not having a bash to collect about 50 more runs will not go amiss. this would also help to tire and demoralize the hosts further.

It really is a remarkable

It really is a remarkable achievement to win in SA: Our first Test win overseas in NZ '93, and England '98, were momentous occasions but I think this win tops it. I would say this is our finest Test win of all-time.

Finest Win

I agree ! This is our finest win, not only judging by the margin and the opposition but also the mental situation. We were down and out and written off !

It was a matter of hoping the pain would end soon but to turn it around from there shows a degree of mental strength that bodes well for our cricket.

I think Marsh deserves some credit for sure. Not too happy with Dilshan's captaincy though but if his luck has changed, let's leave it !

Today, Kallis went past 41

Today, Kallis went past 41 centuries, 12,000 runs, 271 wickets and 174 catches! Truly, the Jacqueus of all trade.

I'm laughing at my monitor thinking of what to write about Dilshan's captaincy. I'm sure that explains it all.
