Another great test in SA.

I know how everyone loves a stat! The 20 Indian wickets were all caught which apparently is a record.

It is a great Test, and the overturned LBW decision against Elgar could well prove pivotal - India's collective shoulders have certainly dropped.

Two SA youngsters have played well again; the top order batsman Peterson and the fast bowler Jansen.

Somerset need players in both positions; I wonder if they are being considered (or they would accept any contract offer were it to be made)?

Hopefully. Both look very good.

The low scoring tests are always the best.

SA are over here in the summer, so it's unlikely.

The bowling department looked so fragile, with Robinson going off with a back spasm or something I couldn’t help wondering why Overton hasn’t even been mentioned unless I’ve missed it.

Couldnt they have given Pope the gloves and played Overton? Accurate, can hold and end up, has got Smith out before, good fielder, can bat…….

But who would help Jack Leach carry the drinks?

SA have passed 300 two or three times in their last 30 Test innings, so I expect it to be a low-scoring series dominated by the ball.

Burns run out but not his fault in this instance.

Burns didn’t even dive and could’ve said no! A soft dismissal that set the tone for the latest collapse.

A big part of opening the batting at any level is about trusting your partner and knowing their game. How can we do that when this is our third opening partnership of the series?
