Mark Taylor: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

“I thought I’d missed a whole day of my life.”

Mark Taylor wakes up to discover Team Australia in dire straits in the first Test at Cape Town.

Australia scored 284 in their first innings,then  bundled out the Proteas for 96 only to collapse for a paltry 47 in their second innings.

When Taylor went to bed, South Africa were 1-49 at lunch. Taylor was woken up by his phone ringing at 1:10 am (AUS time) to discover his home side 7 down for 21.

South Africa went on to clinch the Test scoring the required 236 in 50.2 overs.

What he really meant:

“What’s Test cricket come to when I can’t get a good night’s sleep?”

What he definitely didn’t:

“The Big Bash’s arrived in South Africa—early.”
