England totally on top.
SA only 279 ahead
That's nothing!

Need at least 5678 to have any hope of drawing this.

Something in the wicket England most unlikely to chase 390 or 407 to win or Draw so they will surrender vs Maharaja. I wish match over in 4 days so we have 10 days off till the THIRD TEST, so no one fighting on opening up desirable duplicated thread but over all, Duplisis will be more happy than his 5 days old little child.

Ten out of 10 times day number 4 in test produces plenty of runs in test but if England batsman use same strategy as their captain, they will be beaten with plenty spares time, English player Lacks something to negotiate Maharaj.

Wow, didn't realise Faf has a Test average of 45.
I thought it would be under 40.
Can't remember any innings from him, except a couple of stonewalling knocks against Australia.
And there was an epic innings in a partnership with Kallis against BCCI that almost won SA a Test, chasing 400+.

Raja, you were right but for since he was dropped and then rejoined the team, esp as captain, he has been tenaciously putting up consistent fighting scores of quality regularly.

He's averaging mid 50's as captain since 2016. 41 as not captain.

In fact - his tour of Australia in 2016/17 and the handling and form in the midst of the ball tampering controversy demonstrates he is one of the best test captains around.

Something tells me that I can recall his debut where he got seventy-something? But that's all I can remember.

Seems a decent enough player.

England appear to have chipped away a little bit this afternoon but obviously South Africa are already in the winning position it's just a matter of time.

Will be curious to see if England battle their way to a 150 run defeat or collapse to a 300 run defeat.

474 is very much chaseable over 2 days.
They've already knocked off one run, so only 473 now to get.

It's a very good batting wicket - and SA bowlers are prone to be erratic.
Their fielding has been below par in this series - ergo, 2-0 beckons.

In this post t20 era - the rrr a tick over 5 is very chasable so time for South Africa to dance to the rain gods for more than 1 day.

1928 was long time.probably Cook will break MANSUR ALI KHANS 5 runs in 109 minutes vs England.he was Succeful to draw test vs england but England has no chance.

The way mo and Anderson took those wickets within few balls could be same situation will repeated on day 4

England should just pretend that they are playing a limited over match of 180 overs. Scoring at a run rate of 2.5 per over is all that is required for them. :)

Not relevant.

I've never cared for stats like "highest score chased / defended on this ground".

The only thing that matters is TODAY - the teams TODAY, the wicket TODAY.

What Wally Hammond did in 1928-29 is irrelevant in determining the likely fate of this game.

We know how strong this England side is - they bat all the way down to Anderson at 11.

South Africa are without Steyn and Rabada - England just need to put their heads down and bat sensibly. Runs will come, Saffer heads will droop, chances will be dropped, runs will come, Saffer heads will droop...rinse, repeat...

Congrats in advance to England. Highest score ever successfully chased.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/mcc/content ... 85633.html

The MCC has confirmed that umpires will have the authority to send players off for serious breaches of behaviour under updated laws of the game which will be used from October 1, 2017.

They have also laid out the restrictions on bat sizes and there will be an amendment to the run out law to protect a batsman whose bat has bounced in the air once they have crossed the popping crease.

These new laws follow the recommendations of the MCC Cricket Committee from their meeting in Mumbai in early December.

An attempt to stamp out poor on-field behaviour at the lower levels of the game has led to a decision to bring in four levels of offences which the umpires can judge. The most serious, levels three and four, include temporarily or permanently removing a player from the game alongside a five-run penalty.


Umpire sanctions under the new code

Level 1
=======

Offences include excessive appealing and showing dissent at an umpire's decision. Following an official warning, a second Level 1 offence will result in five penalty runs being awarded to the opposing team.

Level 2
========

Offences (including throwing the ball at a player or making deliberate physical contact with an opponent during play), will result in the immediate awarding of five penalty runs to the opposing team.

Level 3
=======

Offences (including intimidating an umpire or threatening to assault another player, team official or spectator) will result in five penalty runs and a removal of the offending player from the field for a set number of overs, depending on the format of the match.

Level 4
=======

Offences (threatening an umpire or committing any act of violence on the field of play), will result in five penalty runs and the removal of the offending player for the remainder of the match. If the player is batting at the time of the offence, he/she will be recorded as 'retired out'.


We felt the time had come to introduce sanctions for poor player behaviour and research told us that a growing number of umpires at grass roots level were leaving the game because of it," John Stephenson, the MCC's head of cricket, said. "Hopefully these sanctions will give them more confidence to handle disciplinary issues efficiently, whilst providing a deterrent to the players."

A level one breach will begin with a warning, followed by a five-run penalty for a second offence, while level two will come with an immediate five-run penalty.

Speaking in December, Ricky Ponting said focus had to be given to the lower levels of the game. "The reason we are talking about making significant changes to lower level cricket is because it has got completely out of hand down there," he said. "We have got to the stage that something had to be done to prevent these things happening."

However, if the ICC accepts all the law amendments for the international game - which MCC said they expected them to do - an international cricketer could, in theory, be sent off the field.

Of more immediate consequence to some international players could be the stipulation relating to bat sizes. They have been set at 108mm in width, 67mm in depth with 40mm edges. Ponting said in December that some bats have edges up to 50mm which is what was causing concern. A bat gauge will be used at professional level while a moratorium period - which will vary between governing bodies - will allow amateur players to continue with bats that breach the new limits.

"The bat size issue has been heavily scrutinised and discussed in recent years," Stephenson said. "We believe the maximum dimensions we have set will help redress the balance between bat and ball, while still allowing the explosive, big hitting we all enjoy."

In the batsman's favour is a change to the run out law to mean they will not be given out if they have grounded the bat over the crease and it subsequently bounces in the air prior to the stumps are broken.

An MCC statement said. "If the bat (held by the hand) or another part of the batsman's person is grounded beyond the popping crease and this contact with the ground is subsequently lost when the wicket is put down, the batsman will be protected from being run out if he/she is running or diving and has continued forward momentum towards the stumps and beyond."

Do you agree with restrictions on bat sizes?

Yes - some of them have become like tree trunks
No - it makes the game more exciting
Smaller boundaries are the problem, not bigger bats

See results »

The MCC has also amended the law regarding running out the non-striker - more commonly referred to as Mankading - to mirror the ICC playing conditions, to say that the bowler can attempt a run out at any point until they release the ball. Currently, the MCC law states that it has to come before the bowler enters their delivery stride, while the ICC playing condition reads: "The bowler is permitted, before releasing the ball and provided he has not completed his usual delivery swing, to attempt to run out the non-striker."

Meanwhile, the number of dismissals will be reduced from 10 to nine with 'Handled the ball' being written into 'Obstructed the field'.

The updated laws will also be written in language that is neutral to both sexes for the first time with use of he/she and generic terms such as 'fielder' and 'bowler' although batsman will remain as it is seen as equally applicable to the men's and women's game.

Jennings is my kinda English player.
Very successful at first-class level.
Test debut hundred (though he was dropped very early, I recall).

England should give him more chances.

Alread 79 on the board.
Less than 400 required now.

Two stars at the crease - they added 399 against South Africa not so long ago.
That too away.
This should be a breeze for them in home conditions.
2-0 on the cards.

5 sessions to get 400 runs. The RRR is no problem for the cricketing collosus that makes Bradman, Sobers and Khan look like amateurs - the one, the only, the man who puts inja in ninja, his magnificence, Ben Stokes.

Why you not show up when England scored first 78 runs? Your presences only inspires two Stars if you around with other England supporter as well but its too late, Only Lunch saves them from further humilation :bow:

126/7.
Only 348 to get.
England bat all the way down to No.11.
Put your money on England - and make a killing!

I'd say Boycs is haring off to the bookies now to place a bet hence his absence from cricforum.
If any moderator or administrator is able to add Going South to my foe list, I would greatly appreciate it.

340 RUN THRASHING!

That's about as comprehensive a thrashing as I've seen in a while.

That too, from a half-strength South African side that was expected to be thrashed 4-0 by England.

Whatever else happens in this series, it's already a victory for me. :grin:

England has to find more batsmen.

In the meantime - drop one of the 6 bowlers to give them a chance.

The match was as good as over at the toss with Safrica batting 1st against 6 bowlers incl 2 spinners.

Keshav mahraj took 3 wickets each innings is the man of match for me. I would wait for couple of more good innings before I pass judgment on him.
