At least the Proteas used to have talent even if they were mentally weak. Now they are talentless and gutless. Agar was within a coat of linseed oil of getting two hat-tricks against these losers.
Sadly this team is anchored on a small man who seems likely to fold under the pressure. Today was so classic. Starc bowled wide to Okkie and he confidently clipped it for 2.....the chorus in the commentators box revved up their Okkie theme.
But then Starc swung the ball into De Ock, who confidently swung with his usual barn door gap between bat and pad. But Starc straightened the ball off the seam and it went straight between bat and pad. Over. Movement is Ock’s nemesis.
The rest barring Faf and Rabada were just out their depth. Has there ever been a more disappointing bat than Miller.
So here we are....with a new team....but totally lost. And we are playing at home!
