That’s Graeme Smith and Morne Morkel at yesterday’s practice on the left (pic espncricinfo)
Entry to the ground is R30 (£2) I’ll be buying my ticket at the gate, as usual there is absolutely no public transport provided nor parking close by, my modus operandi today is to park and meet a couple of mates at a nearby restaurant (perhaps a mile away) and the owner has kindly volunteered to drop us off at the gate.
I do like to watch the first ball, its a 10.30 (08.30gmt) start.
It’s a glorious morning here, not a cloud in the sky, a very slight breeze coming in from the west, predictions are for more of the same over the next 5 days. (Not that I expect this test to still be on the go come Tuesday.)
So what chance New Zealand? Absolutely none if the local bookmakers are to be believed…
