no doubt in this that SA is the best Test Team, and most importantly with the best playing combinations. in other hand Pakistan is also a good team, but there are some bad-luck for them, one of the worst thing about them is that they are really thirsty to play cricket in their home ground for a long time, they badly need a Pace attack and the team is really missing of the bowler who is 'Muhammad Amir' specially, because batting of Pakistan line-up is always a problem they hardly win a match with their batting performance they usually win the match by the support of their bowlers. if you are playing with the best side in the world so they have to plan for this but sorry to say that i can't see any playing strategy in our side. one more thing is that the involvement of the team management in the selection of players, if any hear that the Coach is not happy with the team selection. Better luck next time for Pakistan, they should learn from their mistake and look forward for ODI & T20...

i agree with Sid. Pakistan played the best Test team in their own courtyard against the two best ranked Test bowlers. Now, lets prepare for them to visit Emirates for return series in October. Sadly, its only 2 Test matches!! Disagree with Yogesh. SA is not yet the best ever side. I think, Lloyd's West Indies team still remains the best in Test matches.

SA looks like they have the right kind of arms and amunitions right now! As of now, they are a great team to watch - a team which lacks nothing!
