We should never batted when we won the toss, Thursday was overcast and humid and we have as a good a swing bowling attack as anybody.........or so I thought
Erm... You'd put good money on Jimmy Anderson, Stuart Broad and Tim Bresnan to move the ball about in the air better than just about any other bowling attack in the world normally.
In fact, you'd normally put money on them (combined with Swann) to take 20 wickets relatively easily on any wicket in the world in a test match. Seemingly not so this match as they were all nothing but predictable! Swann couldn't even get much turn... All of them made it look like an absolutely perfect batting wicket. I actually feel sorry for A B de Villiers and Jacques Rudolph, they must've been keen as mustard to get a bat on that wicket but they won't get a single chance inside a 5 day test match!
Then after a sub standard performance in the first innings pulled up by Alastair Cook's ton (England really should have got 500 on that wicket), the SA attack come straight out and swing the ball all over the place and take 4 quick wickets in Englands 2nd innings!
