It was also nice to see Wasim Jaffer make a typically elegant 116 for India against South Africa at Newlands today.

After failures in the first two Tests he'd been under some pressure for his place. Sure, he has the type of technical weaknesses against movement and pace which are common to many Indian batsmen, but, to those of us with memories long enough to recall his century against England at Nagpur last winter and his 212 in the West Indies a few months later, this seemed absurd.

After their capitulation in Durban, Jaffer's given his side the opportunity to crack on tomorrow and put themselves in a position from which they can win the series.
