Siddle joins Australia's injury list, ruled out of 2nd test

Some pundits believe Faf du Plessis should be installed as South Africa's captain across the formats

Australian medicos admit Mitchell Starc is at an increased risk of injury in the second Test in Hobart after a huge workload in Perth but with the series against South Africa on the line selectors will roll the dice, with Darren Lehmann saying he would never leave out his spearhead based on numbers alone.

"Cricketers all from now on, at some stage in their careers, should face whichever way, wherever they are, face towards Kerry's grave and say a little thank you", Lillee said.

The slide was triggered by Steyn's dismissal of Warner for 97 - the veteran South African bowler's last act of the series. "They lost 5-0", he said.

I am certain that the way so many individuals got stuck in and delivered in the first test, when the normal superstar suspects either didn't or were injured, that more astonishing statistics will be fed your way soon.

"You played and it was just purely for the love of the game - a lot of sacrifices had to be made, including those things like going and organising your own physio and stuff like that because they didn't have physios at the ground, it was just a rubber".

Rabada, who took 14 wickets in South Africa's successful campaign in the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup 2014 in the United Arab Emirates, has jumped 10 places to 20th position in the bowlers' table following figures of two for 78 and five for 92, which later earned him the player of the match award. "It is 99 percent impossible to win with two seamers ... somehow we managed to do it". We go back to England, that was a while ago. That's what we did and we had the foot on the gas all the time.

Donald Trump's Victory Compared to Brexit
If Trump does impose high tariffs on merchandise from China, the biggest source of US imports, the impact would be significant. I see many parallels with what is happening in the USA and the United Kingdom when we had a referendum vote on Brexit .

Israel shells Syrian regime's mortar launchers in Golan
The Israeli army would not elaborate on how Israel retaliated to the attack, whether it was by airstrike or artillery fire. Isreal, however, considers any fire from its territory a responsibility of the Syrian government.

Deadly Shooting in Los Angeles County Puts Polling Location on Lockdown
One person has been killed and at least three others injured in a shooting near a polling station in Azusa, California. Azusa police said the first officers on the scene exchanged gunfire with a suspect and found multiple shooting victims.

"That's one of the most special days, to turn it around 360 degrees from day one where we were under the pump", du Plessis said of day two. "I am incredibly proud of him". The medium-pacer, who bowls in the mid-130 km/h range, also said that he has spent some time chatting to Siddle. A batsman qualifies for a full rating after he has played in 40 Test innings, while de Kock has so far scored 720 runs in 17 innings of 11 Tests. Nonsense. A couple of changes maybe but don't stress too much and don't do anything too drastic. "No one likes to lose".

"Hopefully he gets back real soon and continues that form". The lower order rallied around Peter Nevill (60 not out) to delay the inevitable until tea.

Rabada then grabbed his fifth wicket when he trapped Mitchell Starc lbw with another quick swinging yorker for 13. He finished with seven wickets for the match.

Joe Burns and Callum Ferguson have been called up to the squad while Jackson Bird has been named on standby for Siddle. There is also an injury concern with Voges, who strained his left hamstring in the South African second innings.

While Bavuma's run-out effort may not be remembered as long as Duminy's century or Rabada's bowling, it will have been a great tonic for the South Africans.

"Tactically, he outdid Steve Smith on the weekend, the players respect him, he seems to get the best out of them and there is nearly a bit of leadership traction and strength developing again in the South African team, which was lacking through the three-captaincy system and the coaching set-up, and he is slowly bringing that back together".
