During my early visits back in the ’80’s that huge stand you see on the right of picture didn’t exist, no, just the boundary rope, grass and another cricket field. The bar consisting of a rather large tent serving cans of beer out of galvanised bath tubs filled with ice took pride of place, other then that we just stood around and watched the cricket!
The 3rd and deciding test starts today, 10.30 my time (8.30 gmt.)
David Warner has spiced things up during the week with allegations of
ball tampering cheating misappropriate use of the ball during the Aussie batting collapse at St George’s Park and been fined some $3,000.
Irrespective of the result The Proteas will remain the number 1 ranked test nation, should the Aussies win they climb up to 2nd, not bad considering where they were a short 6 months or so ago.
