Roux: "Duminy should have been gone during the England series (together with Prince). He is becoming the next Neil McKenzie liability for SA, scores no runs and drops catches. It sends a poor message to the rest of the squad (and young guys trying to break into the team) if non-performance is not punished. It means everyone's position is safe and there is no space for performers at domestic level. Not well thought out by (previous) selectors and brains trust."

17.6

Kallis to Tendulkar, no run, gets forward to defend the back-of-length delivery to the off side

That's lunch on day 2. Sehwag gave a rousing start to the Indian reply before South Africa tried to rally around with a run out of Gambhir and the dismissal of Vijay. If Duminy had held on to Sehwag's catch, things could have been so different.

Van Jaarsveld: "Where has McKenzie ever been such a liability to SA? He usually got his 30+ runs when the team fell apart beside him and took lots of shine of the ball. Duminy doesn't even waste time while out there unless it is for the opposition."

Matt: "Oh Come on Roux. McKenzie averaged in the high 40s upon his return to the side. JP is going through a bit of a rough patch but he's talented enough to bounce back."
