Durban - Former England opener Geoff Boycott had some harsh words for the Proteas after Day 3 of the first Test at Kingsmead in Durban.
The Proteas started Day 3 on 137/4, but were dismissed for a paltry 214, a 89-run deficit on England's first innings of 303.
Then, to make matters worse, star bowler Dale Steyn was forced to leave the field with a shoulder injury as England registered 172/3 at stumps, giving them a potentially match-winning lead of 261 with seven wickets in hand.
Boycott, speaking to BBC Test Match Special, said:"I don't think South Africa could have had a worse day. The batting was
horrible, three catches went down, Steyn got injured and they have as
much chance of winning this as I have of going to the moon."
Boycott, 75, known for his outspoken manner, played 108 Tests for England, scoring 8 114 runs at an average of 47.72.
