Die Ock, who should have been out three times yesterday ....was totally bamboozled by a bit of movement today. And out twice for almost no runs.
The ball by Curren that bowled him through gate exposed his fatal technical weakness.
The catch off Root, exposed his mental weakness....a pure 'who gives a damn' shot.
The idea that this talented but flawed player could successfully captain the Proteas is delusional. He will get some big scores when the pressure, as he feels it, is off....and the ball isn't moving. But if either of those conditions don't hold....he will look like he did today. He is a 'pile it on' option and the best we have at wicket keeper for the moment....we should take what he gives us and not imagine there's more.
