After another Quintie hand/eye coordination malfunction, there was a moment of doubt. But Amla majestically soared to fifty with shots to please a cricket connoisseur. Then he saw off Malinga at his best and handed over the reigns to Faf, who looked at his best today.
Crow is served.....the two of you know who you are, silence is no defence! Amla was rounding into form in the warm up games, but the heavy head blow in the Pom game affected him. That led to lurid claims about his hand/eye being shot....as if you can field in the slips if that's the case.
Amla and Van der Dussen should have opened with deKock at 6.
