South Africa lost Heino Kuhn without putting too much on the board in their second innings. Hashim Amla and Dean Elgar then closed that opening and taken South Africa to a lead of 2015 runs.

    This SA team is a pale shadow of its predecessors who were a delight to watch .The only common thing between this team and previous teams were that they choke during crucial one day matches in major tournaments.But the previous teams used to be good in all aspects of cricket in Tests and oneday.This team is pathetic
