Not sure if any of u guys watches the game but I was watching the highlight on TV and wonder if anyone noticed the missed opportunities that cost the Proteas the game.

1. Amla missing a sitter of a catch at slip. First, he misjudged the flight and the ball went over his hands between his leg...yes and all the way to the boundary.
2. Amla missed a catch on the boundary that he should have caught....once again misjudged the flight.
3. Radaba got his hands to a ball close to the boundary that he should have held but it popped out of his hands and went over ropes for a 6.

It is first class cricket and these catches should have been held. No more usual excuses such as they were difficult opportunities because they are in fact every day standard action cricket.

These guys are pros 

These three missed opportunities are the difference between winning and losing a game.

What do you guys think?

The Quoteas did exactly what they are renowned for . . . they choked!

Needing 7 runs off 7 balls with wickets in hand and with two set batsmen at the crease, there's no other word for it . . . it was yet another choke.

Time to give Imran Tahir a chance . . . and then we'll probably do the other thing the Quoteas do really well . . . win games that don't matter.

Rooinek u spoilt old 50/50's blog.

Stand by to be called out for it the only way he is capable of......

U are spot on as well with both your observation on the determination to win and the name of the squad.

As expected, when it's a dead rubber and no-one cares, that's when the Quoteas win . . . and Dense is the only person in the world who is plucking at his tiny little gherkin and punching the air with delight because we won . . . everyone else who follows the game and knows our history of choking when the pressure is on saw this coming a mile away.


Well done England.

 Much to day about nothing. Let's see what happens when the real thing starts....

As a side, I would prefer Faf as captain.  Like AB as a player, not the C.
