    SA 4/89 at lunch

    A blow in, with no understanding of context, might suggest that this bowling performance so far makes Burns' and Heads' hundreds far better....

    Saffa’s all out for 235 with the Lankan’s 1 for 49.

    You’d have to say day 1 to them but they have a tail that would make a dinosaur blush.

    Wonder what DeKock and Dickwella top scorer for both sides way paying?

    Love to see SL put on over 350, cant see it though, probably get around what SA got

    Wow I sure am surprised that Aleem Derp came up with a shocking decision.

    Said no one ever.

    that was atrocious, I mean a bad decision now and then is human but knocking back a review because they took too long when in fact it was only 13 seconds is pretty poor, most umps err on the side of caution anyway when it comes to the 15 second rule

    Is Amla finished?

    This saffer batting line-up doesn't look very daunting. It's really their excellent pace attack which keeps them in games.

    Their batting's probably too good for Lillee and Holding though.

    It was a horror show.

    Amla trapped LBW for nought. Sri Lanka appeal. Derp says not out. They convene. 13 seconds later they signal for a DRS. Derp refused it saying it was longer than 15 seconds. He also never said “10 seconds” as all umpires are supposed to do, so one, not only was it a horrible decision in the first place, two, he didn’t give them a 10 second warning but three he didn’t even give them their allotted 15 seconds to appeal his decision.

    Dean Elgar could play Lillee, Marshall and Holding with a door snake.

    to be honest, I don't like this 15 second / let me have a chat with my colleague(s) first rule

    The batsman should say within 5 seconds if he wants it reviewed, same as for bowlers


    Id also like the 3rd umpire to over rule things more often off his own bat
    eg in the bbl, Jackson Bird got called by the umpire for a no ball (front foot NB) and it wasn't, there was plenty of time before Jackson had to bowl the free hit delivery for it to be over ruled

    SA 170 ahead with 6 wickets left

    they post another 100 and they should be safe and win the test

    Dean Elgar couldn't play Vasbert Drakes with a door at the moment.

    And Amla couldn't play Suleman Benn.

    Maybe they both need to stop wearing helmets and be real proper men, that might help?

    They need to rethink the no ball rule in general. If they initiate the above, if a batsman hears a no ball call and knows he can’t get out caught or bowled etc, he’s going to try to play a risky aggressive shot. To get that overturned after the event wouldn’t be fair on the batsman.

    I’m assuming the system they need (but would be cost prohibitive) would be the tennis fault calling system.
