It is tea time in Cape Town, what a start to the series, what a game of Test Match cricket.
Losing the toss could be a double edged sword. On one hand, Smith was happy to bowl, which on paper seems a good choice at this stage. From the first ball Steyn had it talking and it was inevitable that the Aussies would lose a couple early on. But for South Africa, bowling first means batting last. Already the pitch has shown some signs of inconsistent bounce and slowing, it could be a difficult 5th day pitch to negotiate.
