Proteas lose opportunity

Well, South Africa have gone ahead and blown their best chance to put one over Australia. 258 all out and RSA 38-0 at the end of the first day. Theirs for the taking, you'd think. And things looked even better the next day. Now, at the end of the third day, they're chasing 450+. And Hodge has scored a double hundred, with the entire Aussie second innings helped along by a generous catching effort by the Proteas, who, I think, must have dropped half-a-dozen catches. This is brutal. I hope this doesn't mean that RSA don't show up for the rest of the series. Yet another hyped contest, yet another no-contest?
