    Have to continue the battle and clean up last two wickets. Another 100 or so would be devastating.

    End of day was ok, agreed need to finish them quick and then bat very well, didn't watch it but going on overs and wickets assume turnaround was due to ball reversing. Need two bats to get ton or all to contribute 50+, batsmen that is will take whatever our tail contributes, usually pretty good

    Yep, The old ball was reversing and Cummins went from 0/52 at tea to 4/64 at stumps

    South Africa went from 2/220 after 62.4 overs to 8/266 after 87 overs

    Trail by 66 with 9 wickets down. Not good. Can't see the point of of run rate over 5 when batting, particularly the spine, seem intent to throw wickets away for fast runs. This ain't T20 guys.

    The test format is dead. Its a shame but the shorter formats of the game are more enjoyable to watch. Just the way the world is going.

    Embarrassing from our top order and middle order once again with the exception of Bancroft, Lyon and Paine

    How we have reached 245 is beyond me, When I went to work we were 8/170 or something

    It will take something very special from our bowlers to keep us in this game

    IMO no form of cricket comes any where near to the joy watching a good test match.

    Heavy rain is forecast for day 3, it may save Australia from defeat.

    I'm with you Lefty the shorter versions are causing a real lack of concentration in batsmen generally.

    Warner really pis*ed me off

    Didn't seem to care about what the team needed, Was more interested in getting some payback and smacking Rabada around the ground

    We would have to bowl them out for less than 200 to have any chance, Even then it's a tough chase

    To give ourselves a good chance we would have to bowl them out for 150 or less which I just don't see happening

    Allegations of ball tampering against Bancroft now, This is the ugliest series I have ever seen

    It appeared he was using something to rough the ball up and then stuck it down his pants when the umpires asked him what it was handing them his glasses case instead
