Anrich Nortje is 5 people. And Quinton’s very large catch.
Explain why the keeper is so important in testing. Earn enough points from the catch itself. Especially home keeper.

Lassie doesn’t have to rush to batting. Elgar was doing well and wasn’t chasing high goals. Not only time, but still wickets. He is fine #SAvSL

I was a little confused by some of the comments here about Rassie Van der Dussen.

It was a nightmare for India to play against Sri Lanka in the World Cup since 1996 until around 2009. In the epic battles so far, the Sri Lankan team is now a group of newcomers playing in the national team.Bangladesh has been against for the last 10 years#SAvSL

South Africa went well. To reach at least 350 runs, we need to develop more strategies for tomorrow. Keep the boy going.#SAvSL

Dean Elgar has been elected captain. It’s grainy and sets the tone at the top of the order.

The 4000 test career run is a big deal, especially as an opener. Dean Elgar looks back on his test career and will be very proud when he leaves.
