The Kepler-Wessels progress tally after Melbourne

Submitted by rickeyre on December 31, 2008 - 7:03am

Two Tests down, four to go in the 2008-09 The Kepler-Wessels, the BoG (best on ground) award for the reciprocal Australia v South Africa twin Test series which began in Perth last week and continued with the Feast of St Stephen (Waugh) Test in Melbourne over the past few days. Not surprisingly, South Africans dominate, with only Mark Boucher and Morne Morkel yet to register a BoG vote. (See earlier articles tagged The Kepler-Wessels for details of the rules and the background to the name, honouring one of South Africa's best Test batsmen and one of Australia's best Test batsmen of the last quarter of a century).
