The team is still shit and I expect nothing positives from that lot:-


They dropped the following:-


*   Smuts, Phlehlukwayo and Steyn; and 


*   replace them with

 

     Reeza Hendricks (real shit) Pretorius and Nortje.

The Proteas scored 158 runs for 4 wickets,  

Who were the failures - according to Mozart it would be De Kock - but the batsmen failures were -

*   Reeza Hendricks - 14 from 17 balls;
*   Faf du Plessis      - 15 from 14 balls 
*  Miller                   -  11 from 13 balls (not out) 

De Kock - 70 from 47 balls - strike rate 148,93
Van der Dussen 37 runs from 36 balls - strike rate 142,3

They are 23 runs below where they should have been and that is due to both Hendricks and Du Plessis,  with their striker ate of less than a 100 combined.

Despite the drawbacks - SA won the game.  Australia 146/5.  The last two overs bowled by Rabada and Nortje only went for 7 runs and loss of 2 wickets,

Hahahahahaha....’I expect nothing positive from that lot’ ....says early mouth, the egg faced Wanker.


They actually got the bowling attach right. Rabada, Ngidi, Pretorius and the welcome return of Nortje. This match was won by the bowlers.


On a more concerning note, Ock after playing a nice innings, dropped an absolute sitter. The commentators were speculating whether he was distracted by all the thinking a captain has to do. Does he have the band width.


By contrast the free’d up Faf took one of the truly great catches diving forward, to dismiss Smith and effectively win the game.

So De Kock nearly lost the game for the team and Du Plessis was the  one  worth mentioning.    The sickness goes on,

Faf’s catch was the turning point. At that stage Oz with Warner and Smith in full flow was winning the match. He had no right to take that catch, it was as good as it gets....in effect it changed our fortunes.

It would have changed our fortune if he batted better, 

And another shock for you - De Kock was the MOM
