This was a bad loss for the Pakistanis and Newlands may be worse - with the pitch favouring bowlers like Philander and Steyn.
We have now beaten England, Australia and New Zealand in tests series and are on the way to do the same to Pakistan. Maybe New Zeaklland was not so bad after all. They did beat us in the OID's but I think there were far too many players rested and SA playing too many youngsters for my liking. De Kock is fine - but some of the rest was really no good.
By the way I intensely dislike the way the South African team play test cricket - winning tests within 2 days and 3 days are not my idea of watching test matches. Now we have to put up with another day of replays - what a farce. LOL
