Jade Dernbach, an England bowler whose method relies on infinite variety, treated Jacques Kallis to a slower offcutter. Kallis saw it early, seemed to have an hour to play the shot and struck it imperiously through cover for four. In one ball, Kallis seemed to tell Dernbach that he had seen all his tricks and was even a little bored by them.
A close contest, this one. Hashim Amla was rested from South Africa’s side and when he came on, polite and bespectacled, he might have been a University professor rather than a great international batsman. Luke Wright, by contrast, ran on with his usual energy for England and looked what he is – an allrounder on the back of a successful T20 season desperate for a game.
Question of the Day:
The group of fans with “Kevin Who?” signs attached to their shirts were obviously banking on England’s batsmen backing up their bravado with a bravura display to provide firm evidence that life was just fine without their superstar-in-exile. They weren’t the only ones who were let down.
Disappointment of the Day:
No, not England’s performance, which barely bordered on competitive, but the size of the crowd. With temporary seating, Durham’s ground can hold almost 20,000, but there was no need to throw up extra stands for the first of this three-match series, as around half of the tickets went unsold. Worrying signs for what is supposed to be a cash-cow format.
