South Africa managed to add 73 runs before being all out on 195, a score that allowed the West Indies to enforce the follow on. The second biggest captaincy error was made when Gayle decided the Windies would come out to bat for their second innings instead of enforcing the follow on. The end result is the Windies are 146/8 and have a 359 lead.
The question is can SA get it?? In the morning the Windies will not score more than 400, in all likelihood the will not get past a 380 lead. This leaves the question, who can score 380 odd on a docile pitch? Certainly the Australians could do it, as much as I hate to admit it the Australians would tear that score to pieces. Could the Indians do it? Pakistan? Even England?? The south Africans have a chance, but it would take a decent opening pairing, which Gibbs and Smith have been for years, it just seems that Smith is struggling at the crease, this needs to be followed by a typical Kallis century backed up by Amla, Prince and de Viliiers, not an easy task but if SA want to be the best they need to perform and tomorrow brings just that, an opportunity to perform, especially from a situation that looks desperate!!
