Windies batting...46-4...Nortje 3 for 8 in 6...Rabada 1 for 24 in 10...can it really be11 years since we last watched a morning session live- at 6 in the evening? It's been too long.

Jun 10, 2021, 18:28

Both Peterson and Verreynne on debut. 

Jun 10, 2021, 18:28

Bavuma is injured and cannot  play and the shit=scared  included Verreynne in the starting line-up..

Nortje was magnificent  ibn bowling,    Ge is an was a class act  and Mozart nearly had a fit when Fae and I said he should be in the WC squad in 2019 ahead of Steyn,,    Unfortunately Nortje  eas injured before the squad was announced and he was left out,   During the series a bowler was injured and the duds  called up Beuren Hendricks as a replacement and as expected  he failed badly,

I've been a bit out of cricket for a while now, but Nortje looks good...his accuracy today was impressive.

Jun 10, 2021, 19:01

Nortje picks up his fourth...56-5

Jun 10, 2021, 20:21

Elgar gone for a duck in yhe first over.:'(

Jun 10, 2021, 21:20

SA is 34-2...:(

Jun 11, 2021, 00:26

Elgar always was suspect against decent bowling and  Peterssen  was so-som    Was disappointed by Verreunne  - should not have hit out at a rather inaccurate  ball,   

Van der Dussen was good thus far the  first day belongs to Ngidi. Nortje and Markram,

"Play began with West Indies, as they have done for the last 11 months, taking a knee in support of anti-racism. For the first time since the athlete activist movement began, South Africa opted to give their players individual choice over their gesture after their collective decision last year not to take a knee but to wear armbands and raise a fist instead.

Rabada, Ngidi, Keshav Maharaj, Keegan Petersen, Rassie van der Dussen and Kyle Verreynne took a knee. Elgar, Markram, Mulder and Nortje raised a fist while de Kock stood. On the sidelines, South Africa's entire support staff took a knee while one reserve player raised a fist and another stood.

"We come from a diverse country. Everyone is entitled to their own choice," Ngidi said at the close. "I have been very clear on my stance. Everyone is happy for everyone. We play for South Africa and that's all we are trying to do as players."

Everyone who takes a knee is an uninformed and unreachable coward. Virtue signallers deserve what's coming to them. Not only do the Proteas (an emblem shaped like a phallus) kneel, but the Boks are adorned with 666. It's sickening.

Hilarious really.

A bunch of criminals plonked onto an unforgiving desert continent...Australia. As first world as first world gets.

A bunch of slaves and traders left on tropical islands situated neatly on major trade routes. The Windies. As third world as third world gets.

...but these fool's think racism is a major problem for them.

Again, this anti-racist doctrine is harming black people. It's giving them the erroneous belief that others are to blame for their failings. 

I wonder if people think that blacks around the world will emerge from this nonsense better off.

It's so sad.

Screw BLM and screw every black and white adult thatvis perpetuating this poison in the minds of young black people. 

Disgusting.

Relax Plum, my reason for mentioning this was that Kokkie and one bench player had the balls to stand up to them and refused to take the knee or any other gesture. I respect nonconformists on the big stage. Quinton has backbone...I always liked him, but I rate him higher now.

Jun 11, 2021, 19:41

233-8....QdK soldiering on with a nice 63 ATM...make that 67.

Jun 11, 2021, 19:42

six!!! 73.

Jun 11, 2021, 19:42

another! 79.

Jun 11, 2021, 19:47

.and rotating the strike well, leaving Nortje to face only the last ball of tbe over.

Jun 11, 2021, 20:23

103 off 149...verry good in match context....Kokkie kook when left to his own devices! Yster!

Jun 11, 2021, 20:28

 

Jun 11, 2021, 21:17

Kokkie skop gat!...141 not out! ...putting SA 225 in the lead!

Jun 12, 2021, 09:23

Quintie has the best defence against woke. His stepmom and adopted brother are black.

I know this because his dad squeezed the adopted son into a provincial team on the back of Quintie's rep. The kid couldn't touch a ball. I actually felt bad for him...and of course also for the kid that missed his chance as a result.

Jun 13, 2021, 16:23

I'll take the win, thank you...not the best opposition, but an innings victory away from home, QdK getting good runs and 5 fors for both Redaba and Lungi...and Nortje did we?l too...some nice positives to build on.

Jun 14, 2021, 22:03

Beating the modern Windies in a test is like winning a wrestling match against your younger/smaller brother.

Fine when there's nothing else to do but always a hollow victory.

 

Jun 15, 2021, 22:45

Ja, well, we haven't beaten anyone better in a while...
