Never Kick An Aussie

So there was South Africa, all puffed up after winning the first Test, all puffed up after a good first day yesterday, and then Australia decided that that was enough and they wanted to win this one.

South Africa finished on 198-7. Smith was seemingly the only batsman wanting to score runs, as McKenzie was out for a duck (England please take note: apparently he does get out, it was just you being rubbish), and apart from Duminy, no other South African batsmen scored over 30.

This puts Australia in a firm lead, and unless lightening strikes twice (Graeme, lightning conductor might help you out here), Australia will most likely level the series.

This is a good thing for the neutral observer. The final Test will most likely be the king of all games, where heroics are a necessity and mistakes of any kind will be regretted.

NWG may even try and stay up and watch.
