Another day, another low score

Post by Brucetiki on Sat Feb 02, 2013 9:48 pm

This time it's in the first test between South Africa and Pakistan at Wanderers.

South Africa 253
Pakistan 8/40 - still need another 13 runs to avoid the follow on.

Getting to 54 and avoiding the follow on is a particularly sad stat!

They failed to reach the follow on target.

Pakistan all out for 49

Surprisingly it doesn't look like South Africa will enforce the follow on - Graeme Smith just went bolting up the stairs at the end of the innings.

With a string of low scores in both ODI's and Tests in the past few weeks, what the hell is going on Embarassed

Sadder that they didn't get to 54.

Maybe with 3 forms of the game to contend with, players just can't switch their 'head space' from one to the other quickly enough.
