If you were to draw a trendline you would predict Aus to win the third test given the results of the first two. Yet, somewhat strangely, despite having to work hard to stave off defeat yesterday, it feels like SA have the momentum going into the 3rd test and that the short turn around will benefit them most gievn the impact the gruelling day 5 had on our bowlers. Watson coming back will make a huge difference to us and we could really have used the extra bowling option in Adelaide. I wonder whether the selectors will be brave enough to make two changes to the bowling line up, I doubt it and in any event they will wait and see if Siddle or Hilfenhaus need rest (which they will both strenuously deny). In hindsight, Starc should definitely have played ahead of Hilfenhaus in Adelaide. Now we are a bit stuck with having a bowler out of form but worried about making too many changes on a short turnaround. Assuming Kallis plays (batting only) SA will be at their strongest for this test and the cracks in our game could really be exposed. The WACA looks like its a results pitch this year (all sheffield shield games have finished in outright results so far this year). The spinners have had some success there this year so I suspect Lyon will play for Aus, meaning only the two changes for us. Best part is that I am off this Friday (from lunchtime) so I can settle in and take in all the action.
