Match Notes

  • Adams help South Africa wrap up first Test

    Bloemfontein: It was a typical response from the South African captain, Hansie Cronje, which neatly tied up the post-match conference and highlighted Paul Adams

  • Cronje establishes batting milestone

    Bloemfontein (South Africa) There are those who have loftily accused Hansie Cronje of having the batting technique of an honest journeyman but lacking in flair and then pass on without giving the dismissive comment a second thought
