SA vs Aus Crazy Test!

The 11/11/11 saw one of the most interesting games of test cricket take place!
The 2nd day of the first test match at Newlands in this series had over 20 wickets fall. All 4 innings in one day is something I’ve never seen before!
In a nutshell from somebody that enjoys playing cricket and watching it and especially Test cricket (which is the purist form of the game) – this was the worst game of test cricket (from 2 top teams) I’ve EVER seen!!

Why?? I’m glad you ask! Test cricket is about application, patience, the battle of the mind, batsmen vs bowler, and so much more! I saw very little of any of that!
Teams play session by session and battle to win each session! The fact that Michael Clarke scored a century on the first day proved that by applying yourself it was fine to bat on! I hope I never see a match like that ever again!

I’m glad SA won but we must not get too excited and forget that we were also whittled out for 90 odd runs!

Me thinks too much 20/20 cricket is not a good thing!

You can bite on both!
