    Bancroft was looking good until he decided to go down the wicket again. He missed a big opportunity to score a 100.

    A Matt Renshaw comeback is looking more and more likely.

    And the wicket is getting harder to bat on with variable bounce and some turn. Main danger is rain.

    Just looking at the highest successful run chases at this ground, It would be monumental if SA pulled it off

    Only twice have teams chased more than 300 to win at this ground let alone 400

    In 2002 South Africa reached 5/340 to beat Australia, Before that you have to go all the way back to 1950 when Australia reached 5/336 to beat South Africa

    Here are the highest successful run chases in history at All Grounds including the 2 I just spoke about at Durban

    As it stands if SA chased 403 to win it would be the 5th biggest chase in Test History

    Let's get a few more runs and make them chase the record even though I think we have enough.

    Well it would be the second highest run chase in history if SA get there

    Personally I reckon they will be lucky to get 200

    De Villies ran out for a duck looking ominous for South Africa

    Man of the match - Warner runs out de Villers, only player capable of causing an upset.

    After bad light stopped play Saturday one wonders why the authorities did not make an early start yesterday and it would have been all over now.

    Monday predictions are thunderstorms!

    SA got more than I thought they might, hope weather holds of for very deserved win. Scoreboard indicating that run out by Warner even more vital.
    Despite our dominance this game I don't think there is much between sides, toss and pitch type very important.

    It's a shame that the headlines aren't about the cricket but about sledging and poor sportsmanship, Once again it's David Warner at the centre of it :rolleyes:
