Cricket South Africa (CSA) today named exciting under-19 fast bowler, Kagiso Rabada, as one of several new caps at this level in the South Africa A squad to travel to Australia for a series of four-day matches against Australia A as well as a triangular limited overs series that also includes India A.   Rabada was one of the stars of South Africa’s successful campaign earlier this year to win the ICC under-19 World Cup.   Other players chosen at SA A level for the first time are batsmen, David White, Khaya Zondo and Cody Chetty, wicketkeeper Mangaliso Mosehle, left-arm seamer Mthokozisi Shezi and leg-spinner Eddie Leie.   Justin Ontong will captain both the four-day and one-day squads while Proteas squad member Rory Kleinveldt has also been included as he starts his comeback from injury.   “It was only a year ago that the South Africa A squad included the likes of Beuran Hendricks and Dane Piedt who have gone on to earn senior national colours, so the opportunity and incentive is there for others ...
CSA NAMES VAN ZYL AND PIEDT AS NEW TEST CAPS Tuesday, 3 June 2014 Cricket South Africa (CSA) today named Stiaan van Zyl and Dane Piedt as new caps in the Proteas Castle Lager Test match squad for the tour to Sri Lanka next month while Beuran Hendricks has been included in the Castle Lager ODI squad for the first time. Quinton de Kock and Kyle Abbott, who were not in the original squad for the Sunfoil Test Series against Australia but were called up as injury replacements, have been retained and there is also a recall for Imran Tahir. The players to drop out of the Test squad are Thami Tsolekile, Rory Kleinveldt, Ryan McLaren and Robin Peterson while Graeme Smith has retired. Hendricks made his debut for the Proteas in the KFC T20 Series against Australia and also went to the ICC World Twenty20 that followed. He now makes his 50 overs debut in the place of Lonwabo Tsotsobe who is recovering from surgery and could not be considered. The other changes see Faf du Plessis take the place of the retired Smith an ...
Kyle Abbott is a good selection choice. So glad they never went for Rory Kleinveldt, although Lonwabo Tsotsobe would have been interesting!
Team news for 3rd test: 'Shane Watson is going to replace Shaun Marsh. And Watson will have to bowl. Alviro Petersen is likely to replace Quinton de Kock for South Africa, but can't be sure of that. Wayne Parnell will need replacing. Kyle Abbott, Rory Kleinveldt and Ryan McLaren are the options. Toss in 30 minutes.' Source: ESPN cricinfo
Team news Alviro Petersen is expected to return after missing the Port Elizabeth Test due to a virus, which would mean Dean Elgar would likely shift down the order and Quinton de Kock would make way. A change to the attack is also required due to Wayne Parnell's groin strain and Rory Kleinveldt might be favoured over Kyle Abbott and Ryan McLaren. There is a good chance the spin duties will again be shared by the part-timers Elgar and JP Duminy. Pitch and conditions A dry pitch is expected in Cape Town, where the weather has been very hot and windy in the lead-up to the Test. Groundsman Evan Flint has the challenge of ensuring there is enough moisture in the surface to prevent it from breaking up too early, but whatever the case, batting last will not be easy. There are some showers expected during the match, with the third day shaping as the most likely to be affected.
The week in SA sport ... www.sportsfire.co.za (27 February) Nice for Newlands ... Hard done by the Indian tour and no New Year’s test but Newlands are now getting a more than worthy replacement. A test series decider between the Proteas and Australia. Kyle Abbott has been called up to replace the injured Wayne Parnell but Rory Kleinveldt may get the nod ahead of Abbott and I think you may see Alviro Petersen coming back into the side for Quinton de Kock. Proteas, 12-10 favourites to win the test. David Warner 1-100 to get a massive jeer when he comes out to bat at Newlands after moaning about alleged ball tampering by AB de Villiers in the 2nd test to assist the reverse swing. Best bet of the weekend ... The best bet of the weekend must be the Stormers to bounce against the Hurricanes after their hiding against the Lions. Could be a nice little end of February double – the Stormers (-6.5) onto the Lions (+6.5) against the Bulls. This weekend is also final nominations for the SARU Presidency. Oregan ** ...
Kyle Abbott is a better bowler than Kleinveldt and is the leading wicket taker in the supersport series, but Newlands is Rory Kleinveldt's homeground and he knows the conditions and bowls well there. If it's a low-scoring game, his batting may come in handy.
Cobras hold off brave Warriors Port Elizabeth - The Cape Cobras have lifted themselves into second position on the RAM SLAM T20 table when they beat the Warriors by 18 runs in Saturday’s game at St. George’s Park. JP Duminy returned to form with a run-a-ball 45 and Justin Ontong hit 37 as the Cobras posted 160 for six after electing to bat first, but it was the new-ball pairing of Rory Kleinveldt and Beuran Hendricks who made the telling contribution. The duo allowed just two boundaries in the opening four overs as they restricted the Warriors to 17 for one in the first fifth of their chase, piling the pressure on the home batsmen. With JP Duminy backing them up with two overs that cost just seven, there was no way back for the Warriors despite Davy Jacobs’ unbeaten 62 from just 31 balls. After Kleinveldt had bowled out with figures of 2 for 23, Jacobs did his best to revive the Warriors with a couple of sixes off Aviwe Mgijima (2 for 31) and then three off the penultimate over from Justin Kemp, but ...
THE bizhub Highveld Lions and Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras know that they are well-placed to take advantage of the availability of a host of Proteas players, but won’t be getting ahead of themselves when the RAM SLAM Twenty20 bursts into action with a triple-header at Sahara Park Newlands on Sunday.   Day three of the Cell C Festival of Cricket will witness all six franchises playing back-to-back games, and all but five Proteas will be available for their respective teams.   That means that the Cobras will have Graeme Smith, JP Duminy, Hashim Amla, Robin Peterson and Rory Kleinveldt lining up for them, while the Lions will enjoy the services of Alviro Petersen, Quinton de Kock, Aaron Phangiso and Imran Tahir.   Although the coaches of both sides appreciated the boost, they also acknowledged that the change in personnel could create a different feel around the squads.   “It’s a benefit but there are different dynamics as well and we’ve got to make sure that everyone is in the right space for the w ...

Proteas call up Kyle Abbott Johannesburg - Dolphins fast bowler, Kyle Abbott, has been added to the Proteas' squad for the second Test against India, starting in Durban on December 26. Abbott is brought in as cover for Morné Morkel, who badly sprained his ankle in the first Test at the Wanderers over the weekend. The Test finished in a thrilling draw after South Africa finished on 450/7, chasing 458 for victory. The Proteas travel to Durban on Monday to begin preparations for the match. Proteas squad: Graeme Smith (captain), AB de Villiers (vice-captain), Kyle Abbott, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Faf du Plessis, Dean Elgar, Imran Tahir, Jacques Kallis, Rory Kleinveldt, Alviro Petersen, Robin Peterson, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn, Thami Tsolekile.

England 179 for 3 (Trott 82*, Root 48 ) beat South Africa 175 (Miller 56*, Kleinveldt 43, Tredwell 3-19, Broad 3-50) by seven wickets Scorecard and ball-by-ball details England and South Africa had not met in a major ICC semi- final since the World Cup in Sydney in 1992, a match which AB de Villiers admitted before the start of play ended with him "crying myself to sleep." Grown man now or not, after the mess South Africa made of this tie, he could be forgiven for repeating the experience. De Villiers is no longer an innocent child, he is captain of a South Africa one-day side which throughout his lifetime has repeatedly flattered to deceive in ICC tournaments. So it proved once more. England rampaged through the top order as eight wickets fell for 80. It was a muggy morning at Kennington Oval, England won a favourable toss, and for once the white Kookaburra swung, but South Africa contributed immensely to their downfall. David Miller and Rory Kleinveldt did at least regain a measure of respectability. A ...
Jonathan Trott hit 82 not out from 84 deliveries on Wednesday as England beat South Africa to reach the final of the ICC Champions Trophy. Joe Root added 48 before being bowled by Jean-Paul Duminy, as England easily chased down their target of 176. Earlier in the day, the England bowlers had torn through the South Africa attack, restricting them to 80-8 in the 23rd over. But they were frustrated by the resistance of ninth-wicket pair David Miller and Rory Kleinveldt, as South Africa gave themselves a slim chance of victory by posting a score of 175. They made a dreadful start to the innings, and were two wickets down in as many overs, for just four runs. First Colin Ingram (zero) was trapped lbw by James Anderson (2-14 from eight overs), before Hashim Amla (one) failed to draw his bat away from a harmless Steven Finn (1-45 from eight) delivery, feathering it into the hands of wicket-keeper Jos Buttler. Robin Peterson (30) and Faf du Plessis looked like they might recover the innings, but the former was un ...
THE Castle Lager Proteas made a disappointing exit from the ICC Champions Trophy Tournament on Wednesday when England outplayed them by seven wickets with almost 13 overs to spare in their semi-final encounter at The Oval in London.   The Proteas were never in the game after collapsing to 80/8 after being put into bat and, in spite of a South African record ODI ninth-wicket partnership of 95 between David Miller (56 not out off 51 balls) and Rory Kleinveldt (a career best 43), their final total of 175 was way short of par.   There were more than 11 overs left unbowled at the end of the Proteas innings and the only way back into the match was to bowl England out.   There was a brief period of hope when Chris Morris and Kleinveldt dismissed both the England openers in the first 11 overs but that was as far as it got as Jonathan Trott, with a run-a-ball unbeaten innings of 80, and the impressive young Joe Root added 105 for the third wicket.   By the time Root was out the match was totally out of the Pro ...
England thrash Proteas London - England have comprehensively beaten the Proteas by seven wickets in their ICC Champions Trophy semi-final at the Oval in London. Jonathan Trott top-scored (82 not out) for the hosts , who never looked like losing their grip on the match after skipper Alastair Cook won the toss and elected to field earlier in the day, proceeding to tumble out the Proteas for a paltry 175. Had it not been for the heroics of David Miller and Rory Kleinveldt at the lower end of the South African innings, the total may have been far more embarrassing for the Proteas, as they slumped to 80-8 at one stage. Miller and Kleinveldt would smash a record ninth-wicket stand of 95 to give the Proteas a small glimmer of hope. Miller hit an unbeaten 56, with Kleinveldt chipping in with a career-best 43. England started off their chase in a circumspect fashion as captain Cook and Ian Bell set about seeing off the two new balls. It was Cook who would be first to depart, caught behind by Proteas captain and wi ...
Steyn has a "good chance" of being fit, according to de Villiers, despite a groin problem that has superseded his previous side strain. Rory Kleinveldt or Aaron Phangiso are the likely back-up options, depending on the pitch, while Farhaan Behardien could be brought in to strengthen the batting, giving JP Duminy's offspin more of a role. South Africa have used three different No. 3s in the tournament so far and further experimentation can't be ruled out.
AB de Villiers won his second successive toss and elected to bat first in the Proteas’ second match of the ICC Champions Trophy against Pakistan at Edgbaston on Monday. Bizhub Highveld Lions all-rounder, Chris Morris, makes his ODI debut after replacing the injured Morne Morkel in the squad.   Aaron Phangiso plays his second ODI for South Africa after making his debut against New Zealand in Potchefstroom earlier this year, and replaces Rory Kleinveldt to make up a strong spin attack.   The Proteas are still without Dale Steyn, who has failed to recover fully from a left side strain he sustained a week ago.   South Africa XI:  AB de Villiers (CPT/WK), Colin Ingram, Hashim Amla, Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Ryan McLaren, Chris Morris, Robin Peterson, Aaron Phangiso, Lonwabo Tsotsobe.   Notes   Morris is cap number 110 for South Africa
South Africa's defeat to India in Cardiff on Thursday can't be viewed in isolation. The bigger picture, which is to ultimately right the many wrongs accrued across several major ICC tournament exits, has been severely dented - and demands quick correction. AB de Villiers waxed lyrical about individual plans for each opposition batsman, and while the theory sounded plausible, the practical delivery was entirely underwhelming. The seam attack's collective insistence with short-pitched bowling was one-dimensional, and suggested a blanket gameplan rather than one customised for each of Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, etc. Perhaps the Proteas read too much into Mahendra Singh Dhoni's admission that his troops were at odds with some recent changes to the laws of ODI cricket. Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Rory Kleinveldt certainly appreciated the chance to bowl two bouncers per over, but neither did it to positive effect. This is not the Indian order of old, unable to answer chin music. A harsh lesson duly learnt, despi ...
Imagine if Dale Steyn was playing instead of Rory Kleinveldt!
Rory Kleinveldt and Lonwabo Tsotsobe... Shocking bowling, how do those two even pass a fitness test? Beer boeps for days!!
If you made Dale Steyn bowl with 10kg of extra weight strapped to his and 10 kg of extra weight strapped to his gut, he would also be rubbish. I told him last season but he didn't listen. You're still 20kgs overweight. Is it any surprise that Rory Kleinveldt is getting carved up by the Apaches!
But Colin Ingram, David Miller, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, and the worst of the lot Rory Kleinveldt are PAP
SA attack: Morne Morkel, Lonwabo Tsotsobe, Ryan McLaren and Rory Kleinveldt. out with side strain.
South Africa v Pakistan, 1st ODI, Bloemfontein Ingram, Kleinveldt star in huge win South Africa 315 for 4 (Ingram 105*, de Villiers 65) beat Pakistan 190 (Misbah 38, Kleinveldt 4-22) by 125 runs South Africa began their journey to the Champions Trophy with a leap - not just a step - as they overcame Pakistan with a polished all-round effort that was set up by their batsmen and finished off in the field. Importantly for them, the contributions came from quarters that have been areas of concern in the past. The middle order, and Colin Ingram in particular, played a meaningful part and a bowling attack without Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel functioned effectively. South Africa's batsmen dealt with Pakistan's quartet of spinners with ease while their seamers, led by Ryan McLaren and Rory Kleinveldt, shut the opposition out of the match. By contrast, Pakistan suffered because they fielded only two seamers and did not use Saeed Ajmal well enough, taking him off after he had made a breakthrough. The fifth and sixth ...
Umar Gul claimed the remarkable analysis of 5-6 to help dismiss South Africa for just 100 and set up victory by the enormous margin of 95 runs in the second and deciding KFC T20 at Supersport Park in Centurion on Sunday. The first game was washed out without a ball being bowled in Durban on Friday allowing the tourists to claim the series 1-0. Mohamman Hafeez led his team to a formidable total of 195-7 with an explosive innings of 86 from just 51 deliveries with nine fours and four sixes. A second wicket partnership of 83 with Ahmed Shezad (46 from 25 balls) laid the platform for a late onslaught and a total of well over 200 seemed on the cards with five overs to go. Tidy death bowling from Rory Kleinveldt (2-27) and Chris Morris (2-35) restricted the final total and there was a sense that the Proteas could make a decent fist of the run chase in almost ideal batting conditions. Henry Davids (7) mistimed a drive at a Junaid Khan slower ball and skipper du Plessis (6) edged a drive against Gul to ‘keeper ...
2nd T20: Rain threat looms over Centurion too.. Centurion: Pakistan's hope of striking back in the two-match Twenty20 series was doused when rain forced the first T20 to be called off on Friday. But the second tie on Sunday at SuperSport Park, Centurion give both the teams a chance to win the series. The rain played spoilsport to thefirst outing in Durban and the prediction for the second are also not encouraging. However, the crowd will hope for a brightsunny day to spend their off daywell with some cricket action. Now five of South African current Test players are in the T20 squad - Faf du Plessis, who has been appointed captain in the shortest format, AB de Villiers, Robin Peterson, Rory Kleinveldt and new pace sensation Kyle Abbott. On the other hand Pakistan will be led by Mohammad Hafeez, who will be confident with the inclusion of senior players Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik. Moreover, the Akmal brothers - Kamran and Umar who were not part of the Test side could boost the batting line-up of the vi ...
SA beat Pakistan by an innings for a3-0 whitewash Associated Press | 24-Feb 21:00 PM Centurion: South Africa beat Pakistan by an innings and 18 runs on Sunday for a 3-0series whitewash as the world's top-ranked team ended their test season in utterly dominant form. The Proteas bowled out the tourists for 235 in their second innings late on the third day of the final Test. South Africa had made 409 batting first at Supersport Park and then bowled Pakistan out for 156 in its first innings, with debutant seam bowler Kyle Abbott taking 7-29. Dale Steyn took 4-80 in the second inningsand was backed up by Abbott (2-39) and Rory Kleinveldt (2-33), ensuring the South Africans didn't have to bat again. South Africa have won six series and now six matches in a row and last lost a test series in March 2009. They are unbeaten in 12 series, and underlined their top ranking in their final test of the 2012-13 season, having claimed the No. 1 position with an away win in England and defended it with a series victory in A ...

Amla, Philander fit for action against Pakistan ShareThis Johannesburg, Jan. 30: Hashim Amla and Vernon Philander have recovered fully from their injuries and are back in South Africa''s team to face Pakistan in the first Test at the Wanderers on Friday, according to Proteas team doctor, Mohammed Moosajee. The only player still uncertain was Robin Peterson who suffered a cut to the webbing between his last two fingers on his right hand in the last Test. Imran Tahir was brought into the squad to cover for Peterson, reports Sport24. Philander said he was delighted to be back in the team after sitting on the side lines for the Port Elizabeth Test against New Zealand. His Cobras team-mate Rory Kleinveldt stood in for him and acquitted himself well - taking four wickets for 97 in the match. Philander was second to Dale Steyn in the ICC rankings for Test bowlers and said he did not feel threatened in any way. Philander had not faced Pakistan before and was uncertain what to expect, but said he would continue to ...
James Franklin struck an unbeaten 47 to guide New Zealand to a remarkable one-wicket victory over South Africa in the Momentum One-Day Series at Boland Park in Paarl on Saturday.   Franklin, with support from Kyle Mills (26) and Nathan McCullum (24), saw the Black Caps home when Franklin struck Ryan McLaren through the covers for the winning runs. McLaren gave the home side a sniff of a chance when he bowled Mills with 22 runs still needed for victory, but Franklin and Mitchell McClenaghan defied the South African attack.   Rob Nicol (4), Martin Guptill (0) and Kane Williamson (5) were not able to offer any resistance to the South African attack. But a 78-ball 45 from BJ Watling, as well as Franklin's knock, gave the visitors belief for the rest of the series, as the visitors were struggling on 140 for eight and looked out of the match.   McLaren was the pick of the South African bowlers as he finished with 4-46 from 8.4 overs. Lonwabo Tsotsobe and Rory Kleinveldt, each picked up two wickets while Dale ...

South Africa v New Zealand, 2nd Test, Port Elizabeth, 3rd day New Zealand fight but still face huge defeat New Zealand 157 for 4 (Brownlie 44*, Watling 41*) and 121 (Watling 63, Steyn 5-17) trail South Africa 525 for 8 dec by 247 runs It shows how low expectations have sunk when taking a Test into a fourth day classes as a success. New Zealand showed more fight after inevitably being asked to follow-on in Port Elizabeth, but still closed 247 adrift on 157 for 4. South Africa could not quite conjure the quick finish, instead it was left to the supporting cast of Robin Peterson and Rory Kleinveldt to make the inroads. During the morning it had been Dale Steyn's show as he finished with 5 for 17, his 19th five-wicket haul, but he could not quite repeat his venom second time around. New Zealand managed their first opening stand of any value, albeit still only worth 40, and having weathered the early challenge from the quicks it will have been galling to lose two to Peterson before tea.

Cricket New Zealand show fight against South Africa New Zealand fought bravely to move to 157 for four in their second innings, following on and still 247 runs behind South Africa, at the close of the third day's play in the second Test in Port Elizabeth. Unbeaten pair BJ Watling (41) and Dean Brownlie (44) provided stern resistance and the duo looked relatively untroubled as they added an unbroken fifth-wicket partnership of 73 off 27.2 overs to steer their team to the close of play. Opener Martin Guptill contributed 48 before being bowled by seamer Rory Kleinveldt who went on to have Daniel Flynn (0) caught behind with his next delivery. Kleinveldt ended the day with two for 31 while left-arm spinner Robin Peterson, who accounted for Brendon McCullum (11) and Kane Williamson (11), claimed two for 29. The tourists showed far more determination with the bat than they had in their first innings when they subsided to 121 all out in reply to the top-ranked hosts's 525-8 declared. Watling provided the one shi ...
  World No.1 Test bowler, Dale Steyn believes the role of the senior players has been a key factor in giving the younger players a comfortable introduction into the Castle Lager Proteas squad. Steyn, an established member in the squad with 62 Test caps, feels the new players are benefiting from the professional and harmonious team environment within the setup.   Recent indications of this has been the success of Rory Kleinveldt, Faf du Plessis and Dean Elgar, who have excelled on their debut runs in International cricket.   “Those are the kind of things that the senior players try to lead in their preparation and everything else,” Steyn said about the senior leadership.“When guys fall into this team we want to show them that there is a difference between domestic and International cricket, not just the way it is played but in the way that you train as well, including the whole vibe that comes with playing in this team.   “I think those guys have gelled beautifully; Rory, Dean and Faf look like ...

On this same pitch, South Africa made 525/8 declared with their eyes closed. In the case of New Zealand, they batted as if the pitch was a minefield. The top order were once again ripped to shreds by Dale Steyn and Rory Kleinveldt. Peterson took two wickets in two balls as New Zealand crawled along to 47/6 at the close. Once again, New Zealand have a mountain to climb but one feels that this match might reach a conclusion tomorrow
Hapless Kiwis collapse against South Africa pace - Dale Steyn and Rory Kleinveldt ripped out New Zealand's top order batsmen as South Africa took control on the second day of the second and final Test at St George's Park on Saturday.
w Zealand level series thanks to Guptill century Tags : Martin Guptill , Du Plessis , New Zealand , T20 , South Africa December 24, 2012 A brilliant, unbeaten century from opener Martin Guptill [ Images ] led New Zealand [ Images ] to an eight-wicket victory off the final ball against South Africa [ Images ] in the second T20 international on Sunday. Chasing 169 for victory in 19 overs at Buffalo Park, Guptill helped erase the memory of Friday's embarrassing capitulation to 86 all out in Durban with a stunning batting display as the tourists reached their target for the loss of just two wickets to level the series 1-1. Requiring 39 from the final four overs and 11 off the last, Guptill was on 97 and needing four for victory when Rory Kleinveldt bowled the final delivery - a low full toss which was eased away through extra cover. Guptill's unbeaten 101 was just the third T20 international century by a New Zealander, the first two belonging to captain Brendon McCullum [ Images ] who was almost anonymous wit ...
KLEINVELDT BOWLS SA TO VICTORY Rory Kleinveldt's three-wicket haul helped South Africa to an eight-wicket victory in the first Twenty20 international against New Zealand at Kingsmead in Durban on Friday. The fast bowler claimed three for 18 and was assisted by double wicket hauls from Dale Steyn (2-13), debutant Chris Morris (2-19) and Robin Peterson, whose two for eight were the most economical figures ever in T20 cricket by a Proteas bowler. The Black Caps rolled over for a paltry 86 in 18.2 overs -- Colin Munro top-scoring with 23 off 18 -- before the hosts then eased to the victory target with 47 balls to spare. New captain Faf du Plessis struck an unbeaten 38 off 32, while debutant Quinton de Kock ended with a handy 28 off 23 balls to guide the Proteas to a 1-0 series lead. There were seven debutants named between the two sides with Henry Davids, wicketkeeper De Kock and Morris starting for the first time in the green and gold. New Zealand included newcomers Corey Anderson, Jimmy Neesham, Colin Munro ...

Sports News Experimental Proteas T20 squad to face NZ South Africa will field a host of new names in their Twenty20 cricket series against New Zealand but won't be so experimental in the Test series. The Proteas selectors unveiled both squads on Friday (NZT), with Faf du Plessis succeeding AB de Villiers as captain for the three-match T20 series beginning in Durban on December 21. De Villiers has retained his place in the squad but is one of several senior players who will be rotated through the three games, according to selection convener Andrew Hudson. There are four new T20 caps in batsman Henry Davids, 19-year-old wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock, fast bowler Chris Morris and left-arm spinner Aaron Phangiso. The 13-man Test squad is a settled one following a 1-0 series win in Australia which confirmed South Africa's status as the world's No.1 ranked team. The 11 players who won the final Test in Perth this month are all named, along with batsman Jacques Rudolph and seam bowler Rory Kleinveldt. The ...

A thoroughly enjoyable day's cricket today, which I felt like jotting down some of my highlights. I was rooting for Faf du Plessis to score a century on his Test debut. Sadly it didn't happen, but 78 is still an extremely fine effort. Imran Tahir may not be the most thrilling or flashy of bowlers, but I really fell in love with him today - his increasing confidence was a joy to watch. Loved it when he had a little verbal exchange with David Warner, then moments later put his arm around him and made sure everything was cool between them. Cricket really is the gentlemen's game. ^_^ Jacques Kallis batted magnificently - and all with an injury - the guy truly is one of the all-time greatest. Rory Kleinveldt impressed with three quick wickets, my beloved Morné Morkel finally got a richy deserved wicket (so he could take his hands off his head for once :p) and Dale Steyn got Ricky Ponting out, which really pumped up Steyn so we got to see his Incredible Hulk impersonation and the legendary Dale Steyn Crazy Eye ...
After a long period of exams, it was good to finally enjoy an absorbing day of Test cricket. An out of sorts Jacques Rudolph fell to a wonderful piece of bowling from Nathan Lyon and a superb innings from Graeme Smith came to an end thanks to a fiery spell of bowling from James Pattinson. A noticeably tired AB De Villiers continued to struggle in his role as wicketkeeper batsman, indicating that he is of form with the blade in hand and hss not had enough time at the batting crease to feel settled. Australia then ran through South Africa's lower order before a fighting partnership between an injured Jacques Kallis abd debutant Faf Du Plessis endured the Proteas reached a respectable total. Australia were off to a flyer thanks to a rampant David Warner and a resolute Ed Cowan but both were undone after making starts courtesy of an inspired Rory Kleinveldt. The hitherto disappointing Dale Steyn subsequently dismissed Ricky Ponting by exposing a lack of footwork and then Morne Morkel removed nightwatchman Pet ...
