South Africa touring us should result in a 'whatwoorsh' for the visitors. They're just streets ahead of everybody else at the moment. Any country that can crush the likes of India and Sri Lanka in their backyard are outstanding, not even Australia during the glory days of the Waugh and early Ponting captancies could do that. Though I guess they have been helped by both India and Sri Lanka vastly regressing as opposed to where they were a decade ago.

Expecting England to get whitewashed in India as well.

Maybe I should be positive and hope they have learned to play spin in the last few weeks.

Meanwhile NZ and SL get washed away by the rain... You guys from England in here, who do you think should keep your wickets against India?

I'd have Prior keeping wicket.

My team would be: Cook, Compton, Trott, KP, Bell, Prior, Patel, Broad, Swann, Anderson, Finn.

Assuming Broad, Finn and Swann are all OK.

Well done Jacques Kallis!

Australia are recovering well in response to South Africa's 450. 4/344 after being 3/40.

Cowan out for 136, Hussey warming up on 28 and ACF's favourite player is on 136, after being caught behind on a no-ball last over. Looks like another high scoring draw folks *yawn*

Another Gabba snooze fest.

Yep. I'm always so annoyed that the "sporting press" carry on like a bunch of prats the second a pitch actually has something in it for the bowlers. Gabba and Adelaide oval are just roads, WACA is losing more of it's legendary bounce each year and the MCG and SCG are turning less than ever.

May as well replace Aussie wickets with matted strips FFS.

True, Bellerive is the last venue that usually guarantees a result. Just enough swing and turn to trouble while still being playable. Melbourne and Adelaide used to be very similar until about 10-15 years ago.
