‘But after lengthy discussions, they were unable to persuade the South Africans, who fly out of the UK on Tuesday, to delay their departure by 24 hours even though they have a 10-day gap between arriving home and departing for their next tour of India on 24 September.


i understands it was the reluctance of South Africa to risk losing – and damaging their hopes of qualifying for next year’s World Test Championship Final – rather than logistical issues that was the main reason behind their decision not to agree to extend the match.‘


….


This reminds me of the Erasmus chicken run when we chose to not compete even though fans were thirsting for sport after the initial Covid isolation.


Here we are again, deciding not to compete at an historic moment. A day was lost with Queen Elizabeth’s passing. In view of that event we should absolutely have agreed to extend by a day….to be part of something historic.


Instead the Proteas choose to avoid a possible loss……embarrassingly small..

BS reached top level again and is ongoing - happy Idiots's Day to you.    The test was scheduled to end on  Monday and that is what was booked and costed out at.   Will there be flights available to get the SA players back to SA?   What about Hotel accommodation , etc?   

Can you never post anything on site that does not represent ultra-BS.

69 for 6 at lunch - how embarrassing

This must be the worst SA test batting line up in the history of SA cricket

Accommodation and transport were being worked out….we bottled out again. If you were honest Tokkie you would admit this is a total embarrassment. We deserve the batting performance we are producing.

Well the Proteas must stick to their original schedule as this test will be over in the three days.

Don't prolong the agony get home.

Enough is enough.

What are they going to do in INDIA?

Is Jansen the same guy that was made 12th Man for the last test so that they could bring in a spinner.

Trust that the clots who made that call now understand that Jansen is an excellent player with both bat and ball. 
Just look at the scorecard and it stands out a mile........

Good show Jansen.
