England bowlers have stuck at their task, i'd have liked to have seen these attacking fields much earlier in the piece. If we go on to win it won't matter, but imagine if we don't.

It'll be finished in the next five minutes, mate.

 

De Kock and van der Dussen will be devastated by their terrible shots.

Get the fuck in, yet another great ball from Stokes and another great catch, this time from Crawley. Stokes on a Hattrick....come on.

Yeah, daft shots in the big scheme of things, especially de Kock. vd Dussen was a good ball played to a good plan.

Great bowling from Stokes. Can't see Rhubarb and Philanderer seeing these overs out, not the way Stokes is bowling.

It was a good plan, but he didn't actually need to play at it though. He'd read where it stumps were superbly for the previous few hours. It was pretty fucking obvious what the plan was going to be.

I agree, but in the heat of the moment it's amazing how often you forget where your leg stump is and play at a ball you'd normally leave. All in all though SA are throwing this away, although England bowlers have stuck at their task in great fashion and the ball started moving a bit at exactly the right time.

Denly on for Bess please

 

Just about to say that, utilises the rough better. All set up for Stokes to get the final wicket though, he deserves it.

Two struggling teams but a great advert for Test Cricket. As Atherton and the others say, hopefully the powers that be will stop talking shit about reducing it to 4 days. 

 

Kick in the balls for SA and we need to kick them harder in the next test. Hopefully Anderson isn't too bad and just a minor strain.

 

Stokes should get MOTM, great catching, a great 72 in the second innings and 40+ first, and immense with the ball at the end, what a player.

Great cricket.

Much more interesting than what's been on offer down here.

 

I'm not sure you can score as slowly and bat as defensively as SA did today, and survive.  

You'll eventually fuck up batting that soporifically.

115 runs in a day's play!

(Mind you they got close to seeing it out I guess)

 

Well played England though.

 

Stokes brilliant.  Again.

Apparently Sibley's family pocketed 21 grand from the bookies due to him getting a century, lovely stuff.

Stokes MOTM, great words from him reference young Sibley, and indeed the other players. Team player personified.

Great win that. 

 

The end looks nigh for Jimmy though, unfortunately. 

If it is a side strain as rumoured, i reckon that would be the end

Still now news on Anderson, just speculation so far. Silverwood just said he's a slight concern. Probably waiting until the medical team have had a look.
