Except the fact that Aus are 1 for 29 after 6 overs which is very annoying, they look like they don't even care. Plus what a tough crowd this thread.

Well, I take that back. Duminy can do no wrong, and now they're turning it on in the field to shut Australia down. Might we actually have a contest brewing here?

I suppose, 2 for 48 now, 110 to win off 67, its possible in 20/20 I reckon. Though only if Ponting and Hussey start hitting fours and sixes etc.

Haha, then he dropped one off Cameron White, thank god, if he caught that I would be throwing the remote at the TV screen, apart from that Duminy is basically perfect, which is annoying, he just won't get out until after he's reached 50, he catches ALMOST anything, everything he does turns to gold.

Now that's just proposterous, but I reckon he'll be a 8000+ run player.

He was on Pete & Myf's breakfast show this morning.

He was interviewed last night, and said "you've just got to respect the good balls and put away the bad ones...:
I was saying that he wasnt ahead of those guys. Hes nowhere near test selection.

Methinks the attention on him might have been due to him being MusliM, the Aussie cricket media feeling insecure and trying to take a slice of the multicultural pie, when it's anything but a sport embraced by all Australians. Soccer and AFL have much wider appeal. Cricket is purely a white man's game down under, with interest deteriorating rapidly.... Our massive subcontinental population find the Australian national side rather unappealing, preferring to support the country of their ethnic heritage than the national side and domestic competitions. Quite extraordinary.
Might be a little harsh. He captained the academy last year and scored 100's and took 5/fas in plenty of games.

Never shown it in first-class/ODD cricket though

Hard to predict those sorts of things this early. We'd have been rpedicting that about Jaques Rudolph after his first few tests, now look at him...

That was one hell of a game. Duminy and Albie Morkel were both exceptional.

The fielding by both sides left a lot to be desired, but Australia in particular seemed intent on throwing the game away as literally as possible.

Wow, what a game, another fantastic match, who would've thought. 4 wickets for 8 runs quickly and then Morkel and Botha coming back in a thrilling finish. Australia aren't to blame, it's just South Africa wanted it more.

Neither team has been exactly good in the field. Disappointing.
