Its all good to commend Eng on hanging in there and bowling well but at the end of the day, fact is, needing 40 odd runs to win with 7 wickets in hand, in a situation where Dale Steyn, a bowler, was able to bat well for a while IS NOTHING BUT A CHOKE. SA should have won the game by at least 3 wkts, considering they didn't even need 5 an over after the 3rd wicket. You can praise ENg's bowling as much as you want and draw reference to the Ashes test series but the truth is Eng DODGED A BULLET and it was merely up to SA's utter, inexplicable collapse that they won.
