The OZ power!

While all focus has been on India vs England Test series, the top two ranked nations are playing what is turning out to be a great match. Australia clearly dominated the match for almost all sessions except the last when South Africa made a stunning come back. South Africa were set a challenging target of 414 runs with a day and 2 sessions. Smith and Amla played brilliantly to give South Africa a great start guided them to situation where a win seems likely for them now.

Just when South Africa seemed to take control of the match, Johnson struck for the Aussies removing the in form Smith. That actually broke the partnership and Amla didn't last long either as he lost his wicket to Brett Lee. I feel now the match is in balance and whoever performs tomorrow will emerge as the winners.
