    Contact , that's why.
    Both sides have been gobbing off for sure but contact is another thing.
    If that was kohli he bumped he would have been gone.
    Warner should have been dealt with along time ago by us so don't get the idea im excusing that knob.

    So what's the best way to answer? Smith needs to come out and smash a straight drive at Rabada...and then another one...and another. Smith should also deliberately run straight at him on a 'quick' single. It would completely pump his side up and show the SA team they're gonna come at them far harder than they have thus far.

    Australia are off to a solid start in the 3rd test. Elgar got another 100 thanks to a routine drop.
    Lucky to be back in it but thanks to Cummins 4 for 7 and a couple of late ones we may even have the upper hand.

    **** fielding is killing us.

    I just have a feeling that Bancroft might stand up this test.

    If we can keep them under 300 it's been a pretty good effort, Cummins is the gift that keeps on giving in the hard times. Not nice Gary regarding the catch. Our batsmen are going to have to dig in when it's our turn to bat and take thier time

    Yeah but in fairness to Gary, he has taken some absolute screamers, everyone drops them from time to time. Cummins' value is in his ability to produce those kind of spells when things are not going well, he has done it time and time again. When he eventually learns how to keep it tight early on when batsmen are set, he will be phenomenal.

    Smith gone cheaply, proving again how fragile our lineup is when he fails.

    Warner has a chop at a fan after getting dismissed. Maybe if you weren’t batting like it was a T20 you’d still be out there

    Hmm 2 openers and a middle order player.

    Wonder who they are replacing?!
     
  10. Ha, seems pretty obvious who CA are expecting to be banned. Bancroft, Smith & Warner.

    Also, can't believe they're considering Bailey and not Maxwell, lol. I guess in terms of trying to fix a toxic locker room Bailey definitely gets the edge over Maxxy.

    I think they need Bailey as the old head in the room. Can’t have a team of pups and rookies

    Like the character of those 3.

    Bailey straight into captain.

    Was thinking Paine might captain, but on reflection , if Handscome knew( with minimal explanation from Lehmann), then everyone knew.

    So the new leader needs to come from outside.

    Tim Paine to finish this test as acting captain with Smith and Warner to play this test

    All signs point to CA giving out a hefty punishment.

    Which is what needs to occur as the damage to the teams reputation is massive

    Well we don’t deserve any other result. Judging by cricinfo we are pretty flat as well

    If we magically win this game would it get stripped from us?

    Considering the in game penalty for ball tampering is a 5 run penalty and ball being changed probably not
