They have plenty of time as long as the rain stays away. Our bowlers will have to bowl really well. Not a hard pitch to bat on.

India getting a thrashing on home turf is always gratifying.

Game aint over yet Wouldnt surprise me to see england struggle to chase a small total - ive seen england collapse in the last innings a few times before. Bit of egg on the face for the selectors for leaving Panesar out of the first test - he's now got 5 wickets in both innings.

Fantastic rearguard from South Africa here.

If India could get 100 lead it could be interesting but hopefully England will win and set the series up nicely.

Du Plessis is having an excellent debut! The guy has grit and talent.

Aus has no excuses for not finishing the tail.

South Africa did well today. Well done to Du Plessis and Kallis continued to show his class in the test match. The final half hour was entertaining but otherwise the final day was quite boring. Siddle was absolutely stuffed by the end of the day. It will be interesting how the bowlers pull up in Perth. They will be tired. I do agree with 42x16ss that Australia's bowlers should have cleaned the tail up. I am putting my money on South Africa to win the final test considering that Mitchell Johnson has been selected for the final test. Runs galore for South Africa.

Yeah congrats to Du Plessis, Kallis and De Villiers. Great bowling by Lyon and Siddle- but he could be screwed for the next test. I do not know if i would like Starc and Johnson- both left handed, with Hilfy who barely bowled today and looked ineffective. Personally i might even go for Hazelwood and the 2 lefties, as Josh bowls aggresively and is tall like Pattinson. That only being if Siddle cannot play.

@ACF: Johnson is only in the squad. Besides he goes well against SA and we shall regain Watson.

Johnson was selected by the media, wouldn't expect him to be in the XI.

Pitch will be rigged for a result, probably in favour of the seamers. We could see Lyon missing out despite his valiant efforts this test.

If the Aussies want to win they won't pick Johnson. He is not half the bowler he used to be. They won't risk him. Leaks too many runs and is too one dimensional. Not enough variety in his bowling unless you include wides and no balls.
