    NZ vs South Africa

    If the Saffers can win this 3-0 they go number 1 in the world.

    I have $20 on them at 4/1 to do it.

    Kiwis suck, and they have picked 4 seamers for a pitch that looks like a loaf of bread.

    It looked like NZ would bowl SA for a similar score to what they got but AB and Morkel started attacking everything.

    How is Nicol in the national team? He's actually trash, only got a decent score against the Zimbots irrc.

    They have much better options.. they should try this.

    NZ 3/17 trailing by 51

    Vettori is quite a good batsman, but he certainly isn't a test number 6.

    NZ rolled for 168, lead of 100. Vernon Philander now has 45 wickets in 6 test matches

    Williamson made a good, fighting 77 which he needed, been in poor form. NZ playing Nicol up the top has fucked their order though. If Brownlie isnt fit for the next test time to swallow their pride and recall Ryder.

    I came in here to post the same thing about Philander.

    45 wickets @ 13.60 in 6 matches.

    Incredible.

    The only thing you can say about him is that every match has pretty much been ideal conditions for him. His next series is in England as well. The test will be when he goes to the subcontinent, Windies and parts of Australia that arent so helpful for swing bowling.

    Still, phenominal career start

    It could also be a case of waiting until opposing batsman figure him out to some extent, 6 tests is still incredibly new; surely he can't keep this rate up.

    7 tests to 50 wickets (assuming he makes it) would have to be up there with the fastest too wouldn't it?

    I think six tests was the record, although that was in the 1880's, ball pretty much dominated bat pre-world war I

    Stats here

    So it looks like since 1950, we have Hogg and Alderman on 8 and a few more on 9.
