That drive from Marnus almost rivals Smith's.

50 to Smith but he is struggling with a stiff back.

150 up for the Marn now... decent effort to get that in a day.

Marnus and Smith close out the day 154 and 59 respectively.

If they can bat out the first session tomorrow Head and Green could go ballistic with a huge total behind them

I was thinking before, top ten batsmen in the world, I don't really see much of SA and smaller nations but imo
1. Smith
2. Kohli
3. Williamson
4. Root
5. Lamshank
6. Babar Azam
7. Ben stokes
8. Uzzie
9. Rahane
10. Malan or Warner

the scary thing is green could easily be in here by the end of the summer.

Unfortunately looking like a pretty dull season of test cricket. Hopefully South Africa can put up a fight.

West Indies just bowled too many balls you could leave- Marnus was brilliant at waiting and left more than he has in any of his other 100's.

Karunaratne is underrated, he's a great opener. Pant too and Sharma.

If we are talking test batsmen purely, I'd go something like this:

1. Smith
2. Williamson
3. Kohli
4. Labushagne
5. Root
6. Azam
7. Pant
8. Khawaja
9. Stokes
10. Shafique

This is based on recent form really, hence Warner just isn't in there.

I was talking purely test cricket.

I would say it's pretty sad to see no South African players in there, a few years ago they'd definitely have a couple

Yep what a fall from grace for SA to go from having all of Kallis, Smith, Prince, de Villiers, Amla and de Kock to whatever bits and pieces they have now.

I'm not one to correlate downfalls with anything, but surely that's what happens when you put quotas in your team

100 for Smudge... been looking comfortable as well... could there be a resurrection of his form
