Someone really needs to explain why elgar is the slip to keshav. That could be a test turning moment. He drops way too many to be the first slip to the spinner.

The less said about qdk's reviews the better.
The guy is proving he's not captain material to be honest. I'd have made Elgar captain. Gritty, and experienced.QdK can't seem to shake that puppy-eyed, deer in the headlights look. Never says a word, doesn't look engaged on the field.

We really need to break this partnership soon, rizwan and faheem can also bat well. A real test of quinny's captaincy but why is he captain if he is short-term anyway? Rather get some-one who will do it full time for at least 3-4 years IMO. We showed a lot of faith in young g.smith and it worked wonders, now's the time to take a few more risks.

Didn't want to take the plunge of making markram captain till he cements his spot.

Well done keshav, vital wicket.

Our opening bats are conspicuously absent from the bowling lineup. The glory days of Mohali are but a distant memory

Eish not looking good guys, I can see them getting a 100 run lead which should spell curtains on our chances.

So, Fawad Alam, with this 100 up, technically does not have a half-century to his name.

We are slowly, but surely, being ground out of this match.

Linde looks average. QdK has made too many mistakes here. Not vocal enough.

This is the second hundred-run stand for the seventh or lower wickets for Pakistan in Tests against South Africa. It's already their best seventh wicket stand against them says Shiva Jayaraman from our stats team.
this is hurting any outside chance we had close of play yesterday
