Could this be the last day of the 1st Test?

South Africa are 72/4 in their second innings and trail by 121 runs
 
Faf and AB the key for SA they need to give PAK 200

Other than his undying love for hafeez, basit ali speaks alot of sense, and always seems to speak the harsh truth..

Just said on air that Chisty's commentary and interviewing skills are poor and he should retire lol.

Also mentioned how corrupt the pcb is, which is well known, but no one seems to talk about it on tv.

He said Najam Sethi would be the destruction of pcb.

He is a fine Analyst and speaks alot of sense the only problem is his support for SNGPL players like Hafeez
 
Wow, really TenSports? showing ads in the middle of an over :facepalm:
 
We need to get AB out, remember how he and Faf Du Plessis saved the game in Adelaide, if those two come back together, we may find ourselves in some danger....
 
Dan: "Mark, 2 things: 1) If there is one thing I have learned, never write off this South African team. 2) Cricket is a funny game.
 
No need to be impatient here , there is bound to be a good partnership . No one expects SA would to be all out for 100 here. They have solid batters. Wickets will come with patience.
 
Bryden: "A 100 and 2 fifties from the remaining batsmen and a few 20's from the tail can set this game up for an interesting final day... A lead of 100 or more against the top Test side might unnerve a few of the youngsters in the Pakistan batting line up..."
 
Splendid keeping so far by Adnan in this match, and unlike Sarfraz he can actually score more than 10 runs
 
Really smooth stop by Adnan, got up in one flow as well. I'm 20 years old and I can't do that.

I wouldnt want Pakistan to chase anything more than 100...

If SA get some how get lead to 150, match would be back on level terms
 
We should have at least 1 more close-in fielder for Steyn...and more 'chirping' as well
 
Trail 99... AB is soo good against spin... the ball is doing something and he still hits him.
 
Babar has been extremely under-used in this innings


Only 1 over out off 34
 
This match isnt remotely similar to Adelaide..

I dont see a draw, with so much time left...

If SA play well enough they can win
 
I get the feeling if AB will give his wicket it will be junaid. he is playing ajmal very easily.
 
:four great delivery and edged to an empty second slip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
AB beaten on both inswing and outswing in that over by Junaid, definite Reverse swing !!!
 
Pakistan are bowling some poor line and lengths. Too much stuff down the leg side and the lengths are a bit too short. Also I don't understand why the field is so defensive. We are giving them some easy runs and not looking to attack. Poor stuff from Pakistan they should be looking to pile up the pressure instead of easing up on it.
 
We've missed a chance I'd say.

Pakistan are in a commanding position and have one slip in place? And why the long-on?

Why have we been so defensive today?
 
Give some overs to Babar, 1/36 overs bowled by Babar :facepalm: and that after he picked up a wicket
