    SA vs Aus game

    The game from an SA perspective... I have to say that Australia outplayed us.

    In SA I've had discussions with several people. And to me the best explanation is:
    South Africa matched, and in fact bettered the Gilcrest/Hayden partnership. So it nullifies that. But compare Pollock with Bracken (or any of the Aussie bowlers with more than 2 overs bowled), and you'll quickly see where SA lost it. Two bowlers went for 80+.

    SA dropped catches (1 easy, couple hard ones). SA missed the stumps. Australia caught well, and when everything looked lost, they hit the stumps from a mile away (the turning point).

    But the positives...
    Not much else. Hopefully the pitch in Guyana has something in it, then the one and half dimensional attack is a little better.
