So, England v South Africa. Well, Wayne Parnell bowled very tidely up front, but the real cracker jack for the Saffas was Jaques Kallis, who touched 90mph with his bowling and then scored at a run-a-ball to see his side home.

Have to admit that they did field very well indeed too, with Van Der Lawnmower pulling of a tremendous catch to see off KP. We weren’t great with the bat or ball.
