I think 360+ was just about perfect. Virtually impossible to get in I4,
with just over 4 sessions.
But enough of a sniff to make the South African's think -- maybe, just
maybe. (As an aside, I am very surprised at the # of posts thinking RSA
have a real chance -- I'd have put RSA at no better than 1 in 15 odds
to win -- not to save the game, but to win.)
Ponting seems to have learned from the last Test. If they draw here (which
is far far more likely than a RSA win), no blame can be attached to Ponting.
Nor should he be blamed if RSA pull out a miracle here (though he probably
of the interval, and with the 3 wickets in quick succession, probably was
concerned about getting too close to tea -- in which case the interval could
be moved up (or is that rule gone now?).
At 0/0, I'd have said 70-25-5 (for Aus W-D-L).
At 60/3, I'd say Aus W-D-L == 88-10-2
