Mini-session analysis for 3rd Test SA SL 11/12

Here is the mini-session analysis for the 3rd test between South Africa and Sri Lanka at Newlands, Cape Town.

A mini-session is (normally) half a session, either between the start of the session and the drinks break or the drinks break and the end of the session. Occasionally a long session will have 3 mini-sessions where it will be broken up with 2 drinks breaks.

South Africa win 16-6.

I've not been doing these mini-session analysis very long, but this one was the most one-sided. And yet Sri Lanka still managed to win 6 mini-sessions, effectively a whole day's cricket. If I can be bothered keeping these up, it will be interesting to see how a year end analysis of them compares to the test rankings.

This was also the first time we've seen Philander in unhelpful conditions. He still looked very good. His averages for this game were more realistic, but his career average is still in the ridiculous Lohmann, Barnes and Ironmonger territory.
