South Africa vs Pakistan | 2nd Test | Newlands, Cape Town | Jan 3-7 | Match Thread |

Recommended Posts

If SA win the toss and bat first, they are favourites to win. If they lose, we have a game on our hands. Abbas will strengthen the PAK bowling attack and Philander should strengthen SA's since he has a beastly record at Newlands.

SA are batting last on a proper pitch against Yasir+3 quality quicks (no rain forecast either). Did their captain go to the toss drunk :facepalm:?  Why didn't these bastards show us the same mercy when we toured. Wahaan first batting karne ki bahut chadi thi naah !!!!

Boyzz are incapable of chasing 100 in 4th innings against this SA attack, but can defend 150 if things go their way. SA have to take a 1st innings lead of minimum 120, else they will get badly embarrassed.

This. unless they blast out PAK for around 150, its advantage Pakistan all the way.

Pakistan top order look out of their depth on this pitch against this pace attack.

 

Can only imagine a blood bath, with Pak batsmen vs Bumrah, Shami, Ishant, Yadav

I want a test series against boyyzzz so that we can deliver them a few hammerings. We will demolish them everywhere except maybe UK.

One thing is clear that Indian bowlers missing out padding up their wickets and averages, likes Bumrah, Shami, Ashwin, Jadeja don't get a crack at such a brittle batting line-up 

Whilst all Aussie, SA, Eng bowlers picking 20 wkts an innings against this Pak team, even SL bowlers making merry :lol:

It's India loss that they are not playing Pakistan in series otherwise H2H would have been much different.

This is not a bowling pitch at all. Otherwise philander would've been all over the boys in green. It's just that rabada, Olivier and Steyn are hitting the deck as hard they can to get done life out if it. Even a mediocre batting lineup like PAK have recovered here.

Yep, looks like 275-325 type pitch
