Match Notes

  • Arthur confident about his 'competitive side'

    Buoyed by South Africa's recent success in Pakistan and India, Mickey Arthur, their coach, believes he has a side that knows the demands of touring

  • Damp day forces dull draw

    The forecast for the third and final day's play at Uxbridge wasn't encouraging and, true to form, the cold English rain settled in and hovered over the ground long enough for the umpires to call off play

  • Malan and Morgan motivate Middlesex

    An irritating malaise swept that threatened to do Middlesex in cheaply was stemmed by two contrasting innings on day two against the South Africans at Uxbridge

  • Prince backs Smith to come good

    South Africa are buoyant with less than a week before the first Test at Lord's, make no mistake, despite the fact that their captain is the only one without any real form going into the first of four games this summer

  • Amla and Prince punish Middlesex

    At Taunton earlier this week Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis punished Somerset with first-day hundreds; today it was Amla and Ashwell Prince who hurt Middlesex at Uxbridge
