I chose Mark Boucher as my victim for today’s Verdict of the third day’s play at Johannesburg in the third Test. Not convinced that was the best line to choose, but it was a difficult match in which to write a verdict. The day ended slightly in favour of South Africa, who commanded a sizeable lead. However, with two days to go and just two wickets in hand, Australia could yet chase down 300.
That’s a huge ask, though. Anyway, read it if you wish.
