    Under 50 scores counted here only ....

  • guyfawkes43 on February 5, 2013, 13:19 GMT

    I'm not a fan of Dhoni but for people saying Dhoni is next,mark my words Dhoni will score more than 49 in the first innings in S.A.F

  • BlackKnight on February 5, 2013, 7:03 GMT

    A lot of people out here commenting Dhoni's next. Short term memory loss? India toured South Africa couple of years back. And guess what? India had a first innings score as good as all three combined - 136!

  • nilb on February 5, 2013, 4:20 GMT

    @TestOfTime your comment is funnier than the cartoon.

  • Deepakrio278 on February 5, 2013, 3:24 GMT

    What about India 76/10 at Motera?? or are we counting only in SA??

  • TestOfTime on February 5, 2013, 0:05 GMT

    All those who think India will fall prey to the 40s club you must be dreaming. India has such a strong and accomplished batting lineup that we will fold for less than that....maybe 30s... or 20s even.

  • siddharth_r2001 on February 4, 2013, 23:24 GMT

    Lot of people are saying dhoni is next in line etc......but the biggest point that remains to be seen is that whether dhoni will remain captain of the test team by the time the SA tour comes along....and if he isn't the captain, will he be in the test team at all??

  • cricketlover550 on February 4, 2013, 15:27 GMT

    lol ...thats true ....dhoni ur next ...but u never know pak can come back strong...

  • S.Alis on February 4, 2013, 12:21 GMT

    At the moment SA is toying with other teams. Lets hope Pakistan will come back so strong in next match and surprise the whole world.

  • Theborngenius on February 4, 2013, 12:09 GMT

    SL got out for 43 in odi against SA after the aussies.. So now turn for 41 or 51 for India this december..

    Dhoni next in line..!! ha ha

  • Dhanvanth on February 4, 2013, 11:03 GMT

    South Africans are always good!! only that Australia were more brilliant during the 1990s and 2000s!!!! They are sure to dominate world cricket like the Windies and Aussies..

  • vivek464 on February 4, 2013, 10:13 GMT

    Now one realizes the brilliance of those innings by Ponting (2006) at Jo'burg and Tendulkar (2010 and 1996 with Donald and Pollock) at Newlands. Pakistan, as brilliant as their bowling is, don't have any real solid batsmen. Looking at a whitewash for them. These South Africans are brilliant. But it's actually kind of sad to see no competition from subcontinent teams when they go abroad.

  • S.Alis on February 4, 2013, 10:00 GMT

    The next victim need to make 43 and 41 after that. We don't want this gorgeous line to go in 50s.

  • RobTay14 on February 4, 2013, 9:00 GMT

    Hah, that's funny. And I'm a New Zealander..

  • naansari on February 4, 2013, 8:28 GMT

    Very good.....South Africa is getting used to bowl out opposition for such low scores on regular basis....hope that India doesn't perform so bad against them.

  • taimoorkhalid on February 4, 2013, 8:24 GMT

    Good one Satish Acharya:)

  • Captain_Tuk_Tuk on February 4, 2013, 8:19 GMT

    Hahahaha :D Who is next now? And next victim of RSA will make 51 now as they are 49+2=51 :P

  • muxa on February 4, 2013, 8:14 GMT

    if you include one days you forget sl were something like 43 all out?

  • Deepakrio278 on February 4, 2013, 8:07 GMT

    You forgot 76 by India at Motera,Ahmedabad..

  • bhaskar_79 on February 4, 2013, 7:58 GMT

    Looks like India are up next. We couldn't cross 300 in England and this time without Dravid the max score could fall to 200! Of course if we keep our lowest score above 50 it'll a major victory over Oz, Nz, and Pak!

  • im52923 on February 4, 2013, 7:41 GMT

    After SA were bowled out for 253, someone commented atleast Pakistan can not be Followed on now.... He was right, they did not make Pakistan Follow on :P they batter themselves... :P

  • on February 4, 2013, 7:40 GMT

    @Demone: also note the year of these scores....1896, 1924, 1899, 1932 respectively....do u realize all the scores mentioned in the cartoon are from the same generation of the sport, in its most evolved state? This IS in fact something to write about.

  • WalkingWicket11 on February 4, 2013, 7:40 GMT

    @Demone This joke is not meant for people still living in the 19th century. :P

  • im52923 on February 4, 2013, 7:36 GMT

    lol cool.... Styne and Philender...unstoppable

  • hachan on February 4, 2013, 7:29 GMT

    simply awsome :D look Pakistan has better record than Aus & NZ...:D

  • Demone on February 4, 2013, 7:21 GMT

    Good joke but not good enough, because South Africa holding top 4 of 5 positions of lowest total in test cricket:

    1) 26 New Zealand v England 2) 30 South Africa v England 3) 30 South Africa v England 4) 35 South Africa v England 5) 36 South Africa v Australia
