Ex Australia Opener Tears Into South Africa Captain Dean Elgar

Katich, who played 56 Tests and amassed more than 4,000 runs, claimed that things may have turned 

out differently for the visitors had fast bowler Anrich Nortje received a little more assistance

Former Australia captain Simon Katich criticised Dean Elgar, the skipper of South Africa

for his strategy and decision-making during the second Test match against Australia

calling them awful and noting that the field he created on day two at the MCG defied reason

Australia declared their first innings at 575 for eight on day three after starting the day on 386 for three

leaving the Proteas needing to score a staggering amount of runs to win the Boxing Day Test

After Wednesday's declaration, South Africa, who had been bowled out for 189 in the first innings, started their second innings 386 runs down
