    When firecrackers fizzle out there is usually only darkness left behind. AB de Villiers and Faf du Plessis are two of the most exciting batsmen on the circuit, known for their ability to rotate strike, but they are in the middle of what is, so far, the second-lowest stand in terms of run-rate (150 balls minimum) of the last 22 years. By stumps on day four in Adelaide they had added 32 runs in partnership, off 29 overs, to blot South Africa out of contention and raise the white flag at Adelaide Oval.

    "We know that 350 on the last day with four wickets down is probably out of the window," Russell Domingo, South Africa's assistant coach, said. De Villiers and du Plessis' partnership included 14 maiden overs, with seven out of the last nine overs in the day going for no runs, and 150 dot balls.

    For two live wires, that would have taken an enormous amount of patience, perhaps driven by the knowledge that they had to consolidate first. With South Africa at 45 for 4, a swift end was likely but the two school friends wanted to go down with dignity instead.

    CD to fall in love with Firedose.

    SA have thrown in the white flag because they're not cut out to be the best. It's a mental thing.
