Convicts v Saffers

Jul 12, 2005
Canvey Island
The 1st Test at Perh has passed almost unnoticed, the Seth Effrikans chasing down 414 to win the match, a great win for the Saffers as a year or so ago they would have bottled this big time. Although I don't like Graeme Smith his innings at Perth and the one to win at Headingley last summer puts him in the top 5 of current test batsmen.

I have an idea the writing may well be on the wall for the convicts now, and the knives may be out in the Aussie press for piggy eyes Ponting soon. Their bowling looks distinctly second rate and only Mitchell Johnson looks to be true test class. I'm not ruling out Brett Lee but he looks a shadow of his former self.

It is going to be interesting to see what changes the Aussies will make for the Boxing Day test in Melbourne.
