I sat and watched every ball of this test and don't agree with Boycott on the England bowling, he must have missed parts of it to say that imo. England, a part from that first morning, bowled very well in parts, particularly that second evening after tea, the 3rd morning and obviously the 5th day, they must have had the SA's play and miss 30 or 40 times, another day they could have dismissed them twice, add to that if Cook had held that dolly how different this game would have gone. Agree with his thought on KP and Prior ( ftr Stewart as wicket keeper averaged 36) who averages 42, more importantly he has a strike rate of 65 which is unbelievable.
