They had a rough start to their innings and they don't have the depth to recover. A couple of umpires calls on lbw went against them with their top order when the ball only just clipped the wickets. Another day they aren't given and the batsmen stay in.

CSA's Board unanimously agree to issue a directive requiring all Proteas players to adopt a consistent and united stance against racism by “taking the knee” prior to the start of their remaining #T20WorldCup matches . (If anyone saw the first game they were half and half pretty much)

Straight after that was announced Quinten de Cock declared as not playing today for personal reasons which has been inferred by Pommie on comms as connected!!!!

Think the end games pretty clear now Cricket SA have said hes absent for not taking the knee. De Kock doesnt seem the type to back down so expect he will be heading home without playing again, next to be seen playing a full season of county cricket next year.

You can make a mighty fine living bouncing around the 20:20 circuit, moving from one continent to another. Easy enough for him just to commit to that and end up making more than he does as an international. Seems a real mess by the SA management to have made this up on the hoof and not have all of the players on board.

It's sad that a full year of county cricket is not even in the picture now. He may come across for a while but he will be on the flight to wherever at some point.

Oh, I’m enjoying this! All my mates so far during this WC have said about England “Yeah, but wait until we play Australia.”

So I did. And I’m enjoying the start.

The TV director has clearly been missing from the last 5-10 years. Every break in play zooms in to a suitably attractive female in the crowd. I'm guessing sky don't control the pictures.
