It isn’t easy covering an unpredictable sports event like a five-day Test match, as The Age’s Peter Roebuck illustrates. Here he is on Monday:
Bewildering tactics and wayward bowling at the start of the South African reply undid much of the hard work completed by the batsmen during the course of Australia’s long first innings. After two early wickets had fallen, the Australians lost their way, repeatedly over-pitching and also sending down numerous no-balls … Australia played compromised and accommodating cricket. It might prove to be a costly mistake.
Happily the bowlers made amends and a significant lead was secured.
